    This is a great list!  I love when things are made easy.  And this is easy.  This would be a great resource for a newbie to simply follow as a to-do list. 
    The best part of this is in addition to building backlinks, the work you do will drive traffic right away. If you follow this list and put thoughtful and useful content out there, people will click on your link to see what else you have to say.
