I came across this gem from Copyblogger this morning, and thought it was so worthwhile I couldn't resist posting it here. When I Googled the original publication, I saw this it was from 2012, further proof that if you have strong evergreen content on your blog, people will come back to it time and time again. While many may have heard of the "go for a walk" strategy to clear your mind, or the idea of a guest interview, cross promoting with smaller blogs with a variety of audiences and expanding your cultural horizons to get ideas are some inspiring ideas I like. Many of my favorite bloggers get great engagement by telling their personal stories, or coming up with great best-case worse-case studies. And there's always the tried and true list strategy, based on the assumptions that readers love lists, as long as they are relevant and timely. Another tip is that if you're an early adapter to new technology, you can try productivity programs and gadgets out ahead of time, and position yourself to be an influencer. On that note, I loved this morning's blog post by Janet Fouts, praising Evernote for notetaking and other productivity applications. I'm inspired by her post to give Evernote another try!
