3 New Important Articles Ideas

Posted on 31. Dec, 2008 by .

TunnelEvery now and then you visit a new blog and catch an idea that you think is really good. The idea could be almost anything from a great footer to a really interesting article.

That is what happened to me. I came across three very cool articles that I thought are worth checking out. It is not actually the article itself but the idea behind it.

The Thank You Idea

The first interesting idea was created by Valeria Maltoni who created an article saying thank you to all the people that have helped her through the year. The idea itself is great and I think it is also important for blog owners to be grateful toward their readers because without them they probably would be nowhere.
Thank You Valeria ;)

Smashing Highlights

The next idea comes from Smashing Magazine. Its blog covers a lot of topics but mostly how-to’s, tutorials on font and graphics, and CSS. Several days ago they created an article called Smashing Highlights 2008. The article basically sums up all the main posts that were created throughout the year. The idea is great and gives readers that recently subscribed to the blog the opportunity to have a look at all the important articles that were created throughout 2008.

Blogging Goals

The last article is about Internet Goals for 2009. It was written by Daniel Scocco, the author of Daily Blog Tips. In the post he lists his goals for 2009 and also checks whether he reached the goals he had for 2008. Of course you have to set goals that are specific like “Reach 15,000 RSS subscribers.” “Increasing subscribers” would also be a goal but as that it would be a lot more ineffective because you probably will achieve that goal but you would also do it just by gaining one subscriber.

What do you think of the ideas? Have you already tried some of them?
