    Yes, good tips – and I’d like to add an 11th that I think could be a really significant in 2010.

    * Join http://www.blogengage.com/
    * Add the Vote button to your site
    * Submit all your blog posts there
    * Post about your RSS Feed ( among other things )

    Why? Because BlogEngage.com is (I’m sure) about to become extremely popular … and deservedly so ( it’s a fantastic site)

    Cheers

    Will
