This is part of the Blogging for Grasshoppers series
[I originally published this post on April 21. This was a post I’d been meaning to write for a long time, because I believe it can really help your blog, so I put a lot of effort into it.
And then, as luck would have it, that was the day of Amazon’s EC2 outage. Which didn’t mean that the blog went down, but Livefyre, the super-duper comment system I’ve been using, did. A lot of people who read the post weren’t able to comment that day. Aargh!
So I decided to republish it today. Maybe I’ll have better luck this time?]
