Let your Reputation Precede You

Over on John Robb's Weblog he lists what he believes to be the 7 ways to build reputation.
My Blog Promotion 101 post from last month has been publicly criticized by some fellow bloggers because it misses what they feel is the most important element of a successful blog: great and timely content. The point being that your Blog will become popular because your content will command a strong reputation. I cannot argue against this, however one needs to get the blog in front of eyeballs in order to start building that reputation. The Blog Promotion 101 was not intended to be the be all and end all of blog success, merely a means of gaining a head start. A strong reputation is of course the path to success, but there is no point in writing great content if no-one can find you.
