The 7 types of highly effective bloggers
Assuming you define "highly-effective" as "traffic-generating," anyway. Mister Snitch explains:
Not every blogger practicing these distinct styles gets as much traffic as they might like. However, each style has the potential to drive traffic. Other styles of blogging, such as the let's-discuss-what-I-ate-for-lunch style, aren't suited for driving traffic, unless of course you're talking about what Madonna had for lunch. As a rule, navel-gazing gains an audience of one.
Incidentally, Swanson's new Chicken Strips dinner is new only to the extent that it contains fewer strips than its predecessor.
The seven types (see the linked page for full descriptions):
Some blogs, of course, are hybrids: they have characteristics of more than one type, or of types not under consideration here. I see rather a lot of overlap between #3 and #7, for instance, as does Snitch.
(Disclosure: Mister Snitch sent the #7 paragraph to me for review before posting, mostly for statistics verification.)Posted at 4:30 PM to Blogorrhea
