Alert! A blog tip from Edublogs

Today I have had a neat surprise and was reminded of a very important blogging tip, which of course I need to share!

Earlier this afternoon, I was busily scrolling through my tweetdeck when I came across a tweet from Kim Cofino saying:

I found the link to the list of nominees, and proceeded to check them out. I love lists like this, as I always find some fabulous new people/blogs to follow.

Imagine my surprise to find that some very kind people had nominated Tip of the Iceberg for an award! I nearly fell off my chair!

I sent off a tweet to say:

@Edublogs (a.k.a Sue Waters) tweeted back right away, and let me in on who nominated me. I can’t thank Sylvia & Darcie enough for the gesture! You guys totally made my day!

Sue also made a super suggestion that I should set up an alert for Tip of the Iceberg, so that if anyone blogs about it, I get notified via Google Reader. I took Sue’s advice, and set up some alerts, so I won’t miss out on exciting stuff like this again!

Here’s the link Sue kindly passed on, which will give you all you need to know to set up alerts for your own blog.

Happy Blogging!

  1. Glad my tip about setting up alerts was helpful.

    I use both Google Blog Search and IceRocket because unfortunately Google Blog Search (and Google Alerts) aren’t as good as they once were indexing all the blogs.


  2. You’re very welcome on the nomination!

    This is a great tip–I would have come over sooner, but didn’t see my name until today! Guess I need to put this alert thing to use too!


  3. Those Google Alerts are so helpful! I signed up for all sorts of combinations of my name and my blog just to make sure I am informed whenever anything comes up. Congratulations on the nomination too! It’s such an honor, isn’t it?
