The Mojo & Secret Sauce

The pixie dust that makes a blog work is derived from lots of hard work. The technique is to find a niche, a topic you’re really into, and geek out on it – become a hugger of it. Don’t fret about SEO, links in/out, amd all that navel-gazing stuff you hear from Social Media pundits. Focus on the content and live it. As this presentation says, “Do Epic Shit.”

I wrote more about blogging in a book and will join my fellow bloggers on a panel at Interbike later this month. Textura Design Inc., the publisher of Bike Hugger, is speaking all about blogging and Social Media at various events this Fall.

Questions? Please comment and we’ll respond. Also check all the other bike blogs.

More blogging and moblogging

The moblogging (mobile blogging, on the go, like we did in Greenville) will continue with our Mobile Socials and upcoming trips to Vegas, Amsterdam, Rome, Taipei, and Boston.
