Blogging Tips MeMe


Sometime back couple of my blogging friends, Grace and Mark tagged me for a Blogging Tip meme. This one really sounded different than others since it was started by a big mind 🙂 This meme will provide an extensive list of blogging tips provided by bloggers.

Here goes the meme.

-Start Copy-
It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.) Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers. Try to make your tip general.After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!Just think– if 10 people start this, the 10 people pass it onto another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

Vinod Ponmanadiyil has tagged me over my tech blog TechCorner for “My Favorite Unpopular Posts” Meme. Matthew over at eJabs initiated this meme and it was intended to reveal few favorite posts that didn’t gain popularity.

Here is a list of post that didn’t have much popularity. But I have to agree I didn’t have much posts in my blog too 🙂

I’m tagging below people for the MeMe.
