Always finding great blogging tips then losing it again? Me too so now I keep all those handy links in a draft blog post then keep adding to it.
It’s an invaluable resource for me so I thought you might find my links useful too. These are the best blogging tips I’ve found and used so far in 2011.
This post by social media star Kristi Hines at Kikolani is gold for all of us who haven’t quite got to grips with following RSS feeds or creating a system so we remember to comment on our favorite blogs.
Read it to find out why I call Kristi the RSS Ninja. I’m slowly working through these tips and getting it sorted out. I met Kristi at BlogWorld 2010. She’s a font of knowledge, totally inspiring and she rocks at all that geeky stuff that drives me nuts.

Don’t have a multi-author blog? Neither do I but some of the plug-ins like the Category Reminder are useful for all bloggers.
Justin Germino over at Dragon Blogger tested over 20 useful WordPress plug-ins to write this post. Justin is another prolific and hot blogger who writes five blogs and manages another two that his wife writes.

Ana Hoffman astounds me. We had a little email chat and Ana told me she used to update her blog five times a day. Incredible since I can’t even manage to update mine five times a week.
Ana has an encyclopedia knowledge of search engine optimsiation and a zillion things all we bloggers need to know but don’t manage to learn about. Ana not only understands blogging, she writes about it in a way that helps us understand them too.

8. Create a Media Kit
Update 2012: This isn’t a blog post any more, it’s now a handy dandy 16 page e-book by Tina Gray which you can buy for a very small price. How to Create a Media Kit will save you time, save you wondering if you got it right and show you how to create a media kit that makes you look as good as you are.
It proved very handy when I finally got round to creating my own Media Kit over for my travel blog Get In the Hot Spot because there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. Tina knows what, when and how to create your own media kit and her ebook will set you straight. There’s no affiliate program for this one but if there was I’d join it because I regularly recommend this ebook to other bloggers.

This is an add on guide to Tina Gray’s media kit by Glowless over at Where’s My Glow. It’s a checklist you can run through when you’ve finished your media kit to check you haven’t left out anything important.
I used them both to create a media kit for my travel blog with excellent results – I got a sponsored blog post almost immediately so thanks Tina and Glowless!
