Default 10 Essential Blogging Tools

John Jantsch of Duct Tape Marketing has an article on the tools you need to blog.

"A lot of people will never get the whole feed thing, but everyone gets email. Create an option for people to subscribe by giving you their email address they will simply receive your blog posts like an email message. FeedBurner offers this service for free. FeedBlitz is another option or, if you already have an autoresponder email list service they may offer this service. AWeber offers this and helps me integrate these blog email subscribers into my other mailing lists."

OUTSTANDING!

This is really helpful from a blogger standpoint and from a more personal one in that I am currently developing my own set of tools for blogging and this helps me see what others find helpful.

Thanks for the information and keep up the good work!!!

Thank you. I've heard of some of these before, but maybe someone can answer something for me... What the heck is delicious? I get that you can bookmark stuff, but how do others see what you've bookmarked?

Great article. I know I do a couple of those things with my blog, but there are many things on the list I should be adding to help generate new readers.

Jennifer del.icio.us is a social bookmarking site where people can share sites and pages they've bookmarked or found useful with other people. It's not a site I really visit, but the idea is that if someone likes one or more of your pages and they bookmark it at del.icio.us then it puts your page in front of a lot of other people who might never have seen it as well as coming with recommendation just for having been bookmarked there.

http://del.icio.us/

By the way isn't their domain a great creative use of a domain in general. The domain alone has generated so much marketing though I'm sure there are many who can never figure out where the word gets divided by the (.)s

Thanks
