I have had the good fortune of being re-blogged a few times (but who’s counting?)
“Reblog bait” is a real tactic that works as designed, though largely ineffectual. You could make it onto Tumblr Radar, you could appear in hundreds of new dashboard pages, but ultimately you’ll net scant-few new followers. (It will, however, help your PageRank a great deal so maybe I shouldn’t underestimate it so much…)
Once again, we should remind ourselves of the undeniable truth that “Content is King”. Write something worth reading, and you’ll find your readership growing.
Sounds so simple, doesn’t it?
