Mix Tapes. You don’t make rap albums, so you can’t release a mix tape right? Well, you actually can, sort of. Think of your blog as your album. All of the different Web 2.0 tools out there are your mix tapes. This gives you a chance to explore other areas that interest you, which may be slightly out of your niche, all the while driving traffic back to your site(s).
Your blogging mix tape essentials include the following:
- Social Media (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn)
- Social Bookmarking (e.g. Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit)
- Article Submission Sites (e.g. EzineArticles, ArticlesBase, GoArticles)
- Video Sites (Just get a TubeMogul account and make it easy on yourself)
