If you are planning on participating in this campaign or really in any blogfest, there are just a few points to consider before signing up:
- Write meaningful posts. It's like when you're planning to have guests over at your house. Not your best friends, but new people you've never met before. You clean up and bring out your best dishes, don't you? Same thing on your blog. New people are going to be stopping by at all hours of the day and night. Make sure you've got your best posts up, no filler fluff or off-topic randomness (unless that's who you are all the time). Broken record alert - you are building relationships. Let your visitors know what they're getting into, what they can expect from you so they'll want to return.
- Give back. Don't just wait for people to come to you. Go visit them, leave a comment, say hi. No one wants to be the only one putting out in a relationship so make sure you do your fair share.
