End of the Year Cleanup – Review Your Blog Reader
Reading and commenting on blog posts can be a good use of time or a complete time suck. Take some time before the end of the year and figure out which blogs in your reader are worth your while.
In some ways this is like yesterday’s suggestion to clean out your email newsletter subscriptions. You don’t want to read the blogs that aren’t providing you good information or are overly promotional.
But you should add in some consideration for which ones you comment on. Whether the links are follow or no follow, blog comments can be useful in bringing attention to your own site. Think about which blogs you often find you have some thoughts to contribute.
Also keep subscribing to any blogs that you are considering being a guest blogger on. You want to keep up on what topics get covered there and on any requests they have for guest posts.
