Blog is Great. But How to Let People Know About it?

Autor: Filip Vojtášek, Albertina icome Praha s.r.o., Czech Republic



Setting up a blog is a question of a couple of minutes, writing and inserting a post is easy without any knowledge of HTML. The crucial point is, though, how to attract potential readers and make them visit the blog regularly. The paper is based on one-year experience with publishing a very specialized blog on military history and is focused primarily on selecting a blogging system, statistics usage and its analysis and the blog promotion.
