Twins Daily Wants To Promote Your Blog

Attached Image: nerd.jpg Twins Daily's mission is to bring attention to Twins bloggers and independent baseball writers, whether they are writing here or not. Why? Because we've been there - hollering into the void.

We actively encourage Twins baseball writers to use Twins Daily to recruit more readers to their sites. Here are a couple of ways:

Put a link to your posts in our forum

All kinds of links to media stories and blogs are added to our Minnesota Twins forums. These threads get several hundred and sometimes thousands of reads. So put a link to your latest post, along with a good (or controversial) quote from the story in our forum to let our readers know about it. For instance....

a. "Over on Buteriffic.com, I've written a story that discusses......"
b. Add a quote you're proud of from the story
c. Add the link
d. Finish with another note about the story that gives people a little more info or another reason to click over. Or just "I'm really interested in what the Twins Daily community things about my analysis/opinion, etc....."

Double-post In Your Twins Daily Blog

When you register for Twins Daily.com, you automatically get your own blog. Some independent bloggers will "double-post" stories, which means take a story on their site that they like and then copy it and paste it onto the blog on our site, along with lots of links back to their blog or other stories.

The blogs on TwinsDaily get some traffic - but if it's good, we'll promote it to our front page where it will get hundreds to thousands of reads. Just a couple of aspects to keep in mind....

a. We'll only promote a full story to the front page. So you can't write a half story and then link back to your own for the whole story and expect it to be promoted. We just don't feel that is fair to our readers.

b. Feel free to include links back to your site like "Originally published on Buteriffic.com" or whatever. Another tactic is to link to additional related content like "For more on XXX, check out my story last week on Buteriffic.com." We may move these links around in the story when we promote and edit it because we don't want them cluttering up the preview on the front page, but we'll try and keep them if they don't distract from the content too much.

The bottom line - we want you to get as much attention as you can, but you need to be the proactive one. That's where we always fell down in the past - too often we would link to someone but forget to check in with them because we got too busy with our own blogs.

But if you try to stay in front of us, we'll try to keep letting people know about you. Indeed, it is why we started Twins Daily.
