Serious blogging and network building

I am sitting in a room with more than a baker’s dozen other bloggers who are serious about getting traffic to their sites.

Me included.

Of course the key to getting traffic to a blog post or a key phrase that is important to the blogger and the focus or theme of a blog is to find other people who think enough of that phrase and the site to link to it at their site.

These are backlinks or trackbacks by another name.

Following are the sites and key phrases of the people I am hanging out with.

Me, I blog for money. By that I mean I do this for a living.

Rik asks the question why blog in the first place?

Tom doesn’t blog for money but he stands by to give advice about hard money in California.
