Is your blog content king or peon?

As an example let’s use a totally outrageously famous blog.  If we copy and paste this post into a Word document we will see that it only has 823 words and eight images. Now what is the measure of content than just the text? If we use words as the measure and every picture is worth a thousand words the word content now is up to 8,823.

Here is how even in this post I added more content than what I’ve written. Click this link: another link to a totally outrageously famous blog. Now my content subsumes, takes over, all of this blog post. There are 400 words, 1 image, and 18 links. It is all mine! The real cool thing about this is that the content still belongs to the original author. I didn’t diminish anything. I only increased the entire world’s content.

Right now there is only one problem with using this link content as my own. It is that I should have some way to link back to my content. The simplest way is to add some link in the comments section. Don’t forget that when you comment that you actually add content. What? Yes comments is content. Not only is it a measure of how popular/unpopular your blog is, but it adds content to your blog.

If you wish to your content to become king instead of a peon, add content. Use multimedia to add content, not just text. Add links to other blog posts. Comment on blog posts.
