Blogging Toolkit of Whoismadhur



Blogging Toolkit is a set of tools that a blogger uses to create , manage and optimize his website . Basically the tools used by a blogger to run his blog . I have been tagged by Sizlopedia to reveal my Blogging toolkit and so here i go .

Blogging Platform

When i first started blogging a year ago , i created my first blog at blogspot but shifted to WordPress within a week as i found it much better than blogger . I dont think anyone will disagree with me on this one .

Blogging Client

I have used Windows Live Writer in the past but after the launch of WP 2.1 i use the rich text editor of WordPress as it has been enhanced greatly from the previous version.

Statistics Software

I use Google Analytics along with awstats to measure my site stats

Blog Promotion

I have employed a few SEO plugins in my blog which i think are doing there job.

Blog Feeds

Although i learned the concept of feeds a bit late , i am using Feedburner for it and it sure rocks .

Browser

It will raise a few eyebrows but my choice is IE7 . I have been using IE ever since i started surfing so i dont feel like changing it .

Blog Graphics

Though i am not much of a graphics person but i am starting to learn a bit of Adobe Photoshop now as i feel it is essential for every blogger .

So that wraps it up . And now its my turn to tag somebody and i tag Eches , Ashish and John  to share there Toolkit with us .

    Some tips for SEOing the WP site:
    * instead of going for the Permalink structure as /2007/04/10/, its better to use /20070410/. This way, we reduced the nesting by 2 levels.
    * Sitemap plugin is a must.
    * Related Posts – It is another must. Most of the time, we never really crosslink our old posts, and the related posts can save us some trouble.

    IE certainly hasn’t got my fancy and probably never will. Guess I am another guy on the FF bandwagon
