Blogging about trees? Let Treeblogging.com be your megaphone!
For this experiment to succeed, we will be relying on others to submit links using our online form. Please get in the habit of doing this every time you post about trees, or even if you just run across something cool on the web. This is the most important thing you can do support the site and help build community aroud tree-blogging. Beyond that, we appreciate links back to improve the site’s visibility in web searches. This benefits everyone, since we exist to drive traffic to your blog posts and webpages. (I hope to have new badges and buttons soon, for those who want to advertise us in their sidebars. If you have mad design skillz and think you can come up with a new logo, please get in touch!)
We would also like to add a few more people to the team. Familiarity with the back-end of a WordPress site (or a willingness to learn it) is a must, because basically what you’d be doing is helping to evaluate and post submissions. You’d also then be able to post tree-related links as you find them without going through the submission process. Email me at bontasaurus[at]yahoo[dot]com if you’re interested in getting involved at that level.
But really, to reiterate: what we most need at this point is for everyone who’s ever hosted or participated in the Festival of the Trees to make it a habit to share any and all new tree-related content here. We might not post quite everything, but I expect we won’t reject much, and it never hurts to submit. We have more than 700 followers on Twitter now, close to 200 email subscribers,* and I’m sure we’ll amass a comparable number of fans on Facebook. Please let us help bring readers to your site, and together, let’s build a bigger, stronger, worldwide network of people who care about trees!
