Profile Pics & Linking to Tea BlogsWednesday, April 21st, 2010
Promote your tea blog!
At RateTea.net, we do not want to replace tea blogs or get people to stop writing longer reviews--quite to the contrary, we want to encourage bloggers to write more about tea, and to help people locate bloggers who write about tea. We have thus added a new feature allowing users to link their ratings to more detailed reviews on an external blog.
Blogs are organized so that newer material is more prominent. RateTea.net is organized in a different way, cross-indexing teas by brand, style, and region. Linking to your blog from reviews on RateTea.net can be a way to help people discover older posts on your blog that they might not otherwise find.
Don't have a tea blog?
Do you have a blog or website that is not primarily about tea? You can still feel free to write a tea review whenever you like, and link to it from your RateTea.net reviews.
Tea Bloggers on Twitter:
If you use twitter, you may find our twitter list of tea bloggers
useful, whether you're a blogger yourself or just want to watch or join in on the conversation. If you do have a tea blog and you're not on the list, make sure to @-message us
so that we can add you to this list.
Also, if you notice from the screenshot on the right, we have added profile pictures. You can upload a picture or you can select an image from a list. We hope this will help make our site more personal and help people to quickly identify individual reviewers.
