I found this article on WordPress.com about how you can get your blog to appear in the Freshly Pressed blogroll. There are a number of tips here that apply to everything Kate was talking about in J14. I think everyone should read it, because it could even apply to those of us writing blogs for J11 as well.
Among the things it discusses:
- Writing unique and appropriate content
- Effectively using tags
- Writing good headlines/post titles
I think this information could be useful for the Union online editor as well.
