Using the Blogrush widget, I found a wonderful post about improving your blog, called 101 Essential Blogging Skills. Some of my favorites:
”Don’t go on hiatus or take a break from blogging. Many bloggers experience times when their passion for blogging wanes. Rather than going on hiatus commit yourself to low-intensity blogging for the duration of the slump (links, short posts, and so on)…” This is advice I should have taken the past couple of months.
“Be transparent. Disclose your biases and affiliations, particularly when it comes to potential profit.” I hope you read my Disclosure Policy in the the Advertise section. That’s my way of being transparent.
“Recognize when advertisements are negatively impacting on your blog. Be willing to part with or change them if necessary.” I recently got rid of a few ads, hoping to make this blog more readable.

I can’t believe I’ve never raved about The Golden Pencil, a blog about freelance writing that includes dozens of writing-related job listings each week.
Enjoy the links while I try to fix the bug in my blog!
