The Blogroll for Your Blog

Use google and technorati searches to find blogs that have similar subjects to your own and then examine the "blogrolls" of those blogs to find other regularly updated electronic publications, much as you would use the biblographies of scholarly books to find other scholarly books. Plan to start reading those 5-15 other blogs on your "blogroll" on a daily basis. Eventually you should add comments to those blogs periodically to engage the authors in dialogue and debate. The blogs on your blogroll should be clearly labeled on your blog page by week six. To find popular blogs in your subject area try Technorati and BlogScholar.
