Getting Your Blog Noticed
If you'd like to get your blog noticed by reporters, there might be a few things you could do increase your chances. First and foremost, the media wants to know that your blog is verifiable, not just a smattering of opinions (while this is good, verification of your statements will always be important). Whenever possible, add links to your blog to other stories or statistics that relate to what you're saying. You can add as many links as you want, and depending on the story, it might behoove you to find a lot of on-line references. Another good use for your blog might be for the posting of press releases and announcements. Remember, the more activity the better, if you are having a lot of news make sure and add it to your blog. It shows activity in your blog and in your promotional efforts!
