If there’s one thing I’ve quickly learned about spreading word of your blog through twitter, it’s that people are more likely to click on a link to your blog if you advocate its value much more than it’s author. That being said, humour also helps gets you clicks.
Than simply writing this:
I just updated my blog about getting comments about writing about Wayson Choy visiting my school. Check it out. *link*
The first two make the entry sound more relevant to a wider audience than just friends – be it other journalists, writers, and other bloggers in general. Also, the focus is moved away from simply being an experience in my life to a life lesson that I think is valuable and worth passing on to other people.
