Problogger: 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Challenge

Darren Rowse is one of the most popular bloggers and whether you've heard or not about Problogger, it is still time you follow the advice he offers in his blog. Yesterday, Problogger started a series of posts called 31 Days to Build a Better Blog, where all subscribed participants are to follow Rowse' advice and write in their respective blogs about the suggested topic.

This series are particularly important for those who are still performing their first experiences in the blogosphere. There are small but important things you have to keep an eye on, if you want your blog get noticed. Here is our five cents:

First Day. Write an elevator pitch for your blog. "Technology and Thinking on Education by Milton Ramirez."

Second Day. Write a list post. No very common here at Education & Tech but we do have some like 7 Educational Sites Your Kids Will Enjoy.

Third Day: Promote a Blog Post. Not all them but posts like Social Web in Education.

Day 4: Analyze a Top Blog in Your Niche. I've doing it quite a while. Thanks to Free Technology for Teachers and Bradblogging.

Day 5: Email a Blog Reader. If I ever done it before, I would do it and practice emailing some of our commenter.

Day 6: 27 Must Read Tips and Tutorials for Bloggers. Before I started to focus on education and tech I used to and still read successful bloggers to keep peace of what is happening at the blogosphere.

Why we are into this, anyway? We are teachers and are trying to teach students how to blog. Writing for print media is one thing and write outstanding posts to online consumption, is another. Our students not only need to have a blog and know how to write, his work needs to be read and as Derek Markman puts it, "It's very similar to any other business, in that even if you have the greatest product ever, but nobody knows about it, you won't sell any."
