Celebrate Blogging!

On September 28, 2004 I set up and launched my first business blog, Biz Tips Blog (no longer active). Eight years later, I have published thousands of posts on 10 blogs built on TypePad including Build a Better Blog (most were for specific purposes and are no longer active) , my primary blog here, using Wordpress, blogged for my previous company at a blog on Square Space, and recently launched a blog-site for a new project co-founded with Ellen Britt at The Future of Ink.  I've set up blogs for clients, taught blogging, written about blogging and now consult on how to effectively use a blog to build a business.

I can't think of a better tool for businesses to use to get known, get found and create a repository of valuable content that helps prospects make informed decisions about working with your company.

I'm celebrating 8 years of blogging and still going strong! And, I invite you to celebrate with me!

It's Brag About Your Blog Day and I would like you to help me create a massive list featuring your blogs! In 2004, hardly anyone was using a blog as a business tool. And now, if you don't have a blog, well, good luck attracting enough interested eyeballs to your site.

I want to celebrate you and you blog!

Here's the deal…I'm creating the Big Brag About Your Blog List on my latest favorite tool, List.ly

That means you can add the link to your blog and will be be forever on this list. Not only that, you can share this list, vote on your favorite blogs and even embed the list in a post on your own blog. How cool is that!

The more people who participate, the better for everyone.  The potential for more traffic from interested readers is the goal here…more visibility, more traffic, more leads, more readers…

Before I get to the list, I also have a special blogging celebration deal for you…

For three days, through September 30, you can save 35% ($20) on my popular webinar on demand, “From Blog to eBook: How to Create New Revenue Streams with Amazon’s Kindle Ebook Program”. Click here and use coupon code 8YEARS to get the program for only $37

Now for the Big Brag About Your Blog List…

Add Your Blog

Click on the pink tab that says "Add to List" to add a link to your blog. Make sure to include the http:// so the link is active. Then check the blog title, the description and add keyword tags if you wish. Then click the Add button. Easy.

    I would like to brag about my blog http://www.assistingauthors.com.
    I find the best content I can to help authors promote their books online. I am especially proud of my series on Pinterest. I not only wrote about how promote books using Pinterest but I made Pinterest boards as examples to illustrate the process. I also made boards for authors to upload their book covers and book trailers. I invite all authors here to email me at [email protected] for invitations to post on Pinterest to take advantage of this free publicity. They can find me on Pinterest at pinterest,com/janisfriesler.

    As a where-are-all-the-blog-posts-I-was-gonna-do blogger (I use the term with tongue in cheek), I love the inspiration you offer, Denise. You were the first blogging expert I knew. In fact, I think I still have a tape (yep, TAPE!) from a workshop you did with Joan Stewart…..100 years ago or so. Congrats on 8 years! Thanks for all you share.

  3. says

    Hi Denise

    Thanks a mill for being such a great contributor to the blog community. It’s refreshing to read valuable information that’s given away freely. All of us at IMG give you two thumbs up. Regards Julian

  4. says

    Hi I came here from twitter I am sort of tired and fed up with my blog and it’s performance and may quit trying to promote it. I usually get a few sales every month but it is a huge site with over 100 posts not all published yet. It has been my on-line site for years and I really need to get it on a better site manager so I can fully show a directory . I am thinking of putting the whole site on a Joomla site management system and using the drop down menu to give visitors a better way to use all the information. The site gets about 150 visits a day. It was deindexed from Google and still gets that traffic my site stats say about one in ten visits from google.

  5. says

    Hi Denise, thanks for giving me the opportunity to promote myself and this is such a great to promote my blog.

    Thanks – Follow me on Twitter @FerbHinlor

  6. says

    Denise I would like to say a big thank you from all of us for providing us with this opportunity as well as your insight and tips on blogging. We all could use help and it is nice know you are there.

    Blogging is a beautiful thing: I get to write and (I sure hope) I get to present perspectives on small business learned after 24 years and zillions of clients served (so there, McDonald’s!) Thanks much for this list, visibility and chance to discover others’ great ideas and resources!

  11. says

    such a great idea and so glad to be a part of your blog list! hope some folks get the chance to check out my great blog about NYC and fabulous giveaways too like broadway show tickets !! Have a great night!!

  12. says

    I am an ex executive who discover blogging by accident. I have never looked back. I write and illustrate stories about life and the lessons we learn. They have become wildly popular.

    I share super easy recipes and wines that we enjoy. It’s all about life and enjoying everyday in every way.

    What makes my story a bit different is I am dyslectic, which makes writing a much greater challenge for me then it is for most. Come visit my blog and let me know what you think.

    I am a passionate cancer awareness advocate. My parents are cancer survivors and unfortunately my best friend lost her fight last year to lung cancer. I love to use social media to educate friends and family about cancer awareness and how they can stay healthy and pass it along to their loved ones. I am a passionate cancer awareness advocate. Each year I am on the planning committee for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event within my county. Cancer affects everyone, no matter age, race or wealth! I am 39 year old (and holding) full-time employee in the business development world; wife, mother, and volunteer of our community that just decided what I want to be in when I grow up. I would like to be in Communications/Public Relations within the nonprofit realm so I am in college as a part-time PR student as well. Follow my journey as I take on the world one day at a time! I will blog about health, nutrition, cancer prevention, nonprofit issues, volunteering, politics and so much more! Hope to hear back from you. Take care!

    Good morning, Denise,
    I’ve been trying like crazy to add my blog to your list, but for some reason it doesn’t seem to be working. Can you tell me what I could be doing wrong? Thanks so much! And thanks for all you do!

  16. says

    What an awesome idea Denise! Thanks for sharing this opportunity with us, and I’m meeting so many new bloggers here. I added my small business marketing blog to the list.

    Congratulations on reaching such a milestone in blogging! Cheers to many more years of great content:-)

      Thanks for stopping by, Laura! Did you add your blog to the BIG list? If not, be sure to add it by scrolling to the top of this and clicking the pink tab that says “Add to List.”  blog on!

    Denise, congrats on your 8 years of blogging! Also, thanks for this opportunity, and for all that you’ve taught many of us over the years. God bless. -David

    Thanks so much Denise for this great idea! You are always thinking. ;^D
    I just installed a series of platform specific blogs on my site. Sharing marketing tips and strategies that businesses can use, and serving as a resource for any consultants working on a project. Would you mind if I list them all? This one’s about Facebook

  19. says

    This is a fabulous idea Denise and thank you for allowing us to be a part of this. I’ve been wanting to connect with new faces so you just helped me so I don’t have to look any further.

    Thank you so much.


  20. says

    Hi Denise,

    For some reason I thought my blog got posted yesterday but I guess not.

    Thank you for the opportunity to share my blog on this awesome list.

    Have a great day,


  21. says

    Denise, thanks once again for a super duper idea and chance to share…it took me a bit of time to understand that you had to put your blog under a tag – and as I have two blogs I posted both – one under Emotional Freedom Techniques and the other under coaching as it is about goal success – though in fact the use of EFT to achieve results overlaps in both blogs! Listl.y – great new tool for me to master! Am tweeting this very good idea of your!

  22. says

    Being new to the blogging world I loved checking out these great sites, reading, learning and then of course, adding my own (Get Organised). Thank you.

  23. says


    What’s this discrimination against non-facebook members and non-twitter members. I am in the process of establishing my business and am giving priority to my content-rich website and blog. I have not yet joined facebook or twitter, although I will do so in time.

    I am in Google+ and LinkedIn, so you can check me out there. I have actually included you in one of my Google+ Circles. Truthfully, I am not yet fully au fait with these platforms and consequently, I don’t think I’m using them effectively.

    My blog is http://chironthebusinessdoctor.com/profitsorperdition/ if you would like to add it to your list yourself.

    Before i go, may I offer my congratulations for your eight years of online success in a very difficult, constantly changing, seriously competitive business environment that included navigating around the adverse effects of the GFC.



    • says

      Hi Graham, thanks for stopping by. I don’t think List.ly is discriminating. Facebook and Twitter happened to be the top two social networks. Thanks for including your blog in the comments, I’ll add it to the list. Blog on!

  24. says

    Congrats on 8 years of blogging. And, thanks for this opportunity for all of us to share a little piece of ourselves. Much appreciated.
    Here’s to your continued success in your new adventure with Ellen ~Debra

  25. says

    Congratulations, Denise on 8 years of blogging. I joined the blogging world 3 years ago and absolutely love it. Favorite part is the conversations that happen. I love hearing what people are thinking about, what ideas get sparked, what others are inspired by. It’s all about creating community.

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity to be part of this fabulous list. I’m excited to learn more about all of these great blogs.

  26. says

    Denise, Congratulations on your 8th blogging anniversary, and best wishes for you continuing success. Thank you for the opportunity to post and view the blogs of your tribe.

    Someone mentioned a problem with uploading their image. I posted the image that list.ly supplied. When my blog info appeared, I clicked on edit and was allowed to upload the image of my choice. Hope this helps. – Ruthi

    Would love to include my blog to the list. What a wonderful idea! Unfortunately each time I enter the information and click “add to list” I’m not able to do so. Any suggestions?

    • says

      Hi Alison, not sure what to say. Did you connect with Facebook or Twitter? That’s required to add content to the list. If that doesn’t work, feel free to add your blog in the comments.

  29. says

    Congratulations, Denise, and thanks for offering another great participation activity for us bloggers! You prompted me to look up my blogiversary date… sometimes I remember it and sometimes I don’t. My sixth blogging anniversary will be October 9th! Better come up with a plan!

  30. says

    I just uploaded my blog site to Listly (I think) and first it comes up with an image that came out of nowhere (who is not either me or anything to do with my site), and… Nothing. Can’t search and find it either by name of blog or url.

    What’s up?

    • says

      Thank you, Bob. Blogging changed my business and my life so I love celebrating! Glad you’ve found some gems on the list. I always learn so much when I host Brag About Your Blog Day.  Blog on!

      Hi Karen, thanks for stopping by. You’ll get more visibility for your blog post is you add it to the list above. There’s a tab at the top of the list that says “Add to List”. Blog on!
