I have been in contact with some one who is interested in starting a tech blog. It’s all very hush-hush for now, since he hasn’t actually started it, but he was asking my best advice as far as getting it out there and having it noticed. My advice was first to write what he knows, and this person has quite a bit of tech knowledge. Second, to link ALOT to other people, generating traffic to their blogs is the best way to get them to notice you. (Let’s face it, we’re all egotistical enough to want to see what someone said about us in the link, right?) Third, visit the blogs of other tech people and leave thoughtful, informed comments, so they get used to seeing you and get an idea that you know what you’re talking about.
My overall strategy would have him work hard at being part of the overall tech-blog community and building from there. What would your advice be? Any “tricks of the trade” you would care to share?
