10 Things I Have Learned as a Linux Blogger6:50 PM
- Every hit counts. Every. single. one.
- Take even the worst criticism constructively, and don't give in. Use it to make yourself better at what you do. If there's nothing constructive about it, ignore it.
- Play nicely at all times if you want others to play nicely with you at all times.
- They won't; ignore this.
- Don't hold back from writing about the things you are passionate about. Even if it may be a little off topic, someone will enjoy the change of pace.
- Forget about the "web standards" enthusiasts, go with a design you like. It's your blog after all.
- Advertise like crazy and show pride in your work. You deserve it!
- Google page rank ultimately means nothing. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise. It's a rat race with a trap at the end. This should ultimately be something you do for yourself, not something that you do merely for attention.
- Microblogging/Aggregating services are a blogger's best friend.
- Expect a lot of rejection. Expect a lot of praise, too.
