3. Give it a twist
4. Ride on the coattails of a popular trend
5. Optimize your posts for specific keywords

Don’t forget Reddit, StumbleUpon and Digg and the more recent Pinterest. If you give each post the maximum exposure, you can focus on writing better stories and still get a lot of page views.
