    • Real life content
    • Destination that you own• You need to publish fresh content regularly• It needs to cater to your target audience• It should not be an island

    • • Strategy paid off as one of the Lifehacker bloggers took notice and linked back to one of Blogging Your Passion posts• This resulted in nearly 5,000 visits.• 6 other bloggers wrote about the same topic and linked back to the original post.
    • Connecting efficiently?
    • Zemanta• Personal writing assistant • By now computers can be smart• Helps with recommendations while writing : • Images • In-text links (Wikipedia, authoritative sites) • Related articles (Blogs, big & small media) • Tags (so people can find your content)
    • Use images Skyword study found an average increase of 94% for articles that included an image or infographic .http://skyword.com/blog/96-skyword-study-add-images-to-improve-content-performance.html
    • Takeaways
