Marcus is ahead of me again, but I blame being out of town for that. Fortunately step number 11 on the list is super easy.
Step #11

Use trackbacks

To use trackbacks you have to actually go read other blogs, and that’s what makes the whole thing work. If you’re using wordpress like I am sending a trackback is simple as pie because there’s a field for it below the post area. Just enter the url you want to send the trackback to and it will take care of the rest. Ta-da. As you can see Marcus has posted a demonstration of what the trackbacks on a post look like using the original lifehack article that these blogging steps come from. Yup, you’ll see one from me! Maybe two even. I love trackbacks!
