I have another post that has some ideas about how community-driven publishing platforms can create context for people, but in the meantime, there’s this one.
A year ago, maybe more, I read a guide from Distilled that logically and creatively helps you to think through ways you can earn links.
I don’t recall exactly how I found this out, but I learned that the writer of the guide was a 17 year old intern at Distilled.
That was Ed Fry.
Now, Ed’s managing Inbound.org. And in the short time Ed’s owned the job of creating a positive experience there, it’s definitely more enjoyable to be a part of. I would guess that in the past month the amount of comments and other actions people are taking on the site have jumped by 25%. Probably more.
It’s a positive story. Respect for that.
