Creating buzz with how to guides

SMS Text

Writing how to guides is a great way to educate people as well as a great way to build links. Last week Chanpory Rith from [LifeClever](http://www.lifeclever.com/) wrote a unique how to guide on [dressing like a Mac](http://www.lifeclever.com/2006/09/07/how-to-dress-like-a-mac/) which drew a lot of buzz.

So how much buzz did it draw?
* It got on the [digg](http://digg.com/apple/How_to_dress_like_a_Mac) homepage.
* Over [94 bloggers](http://www.technorati.com/search/www.lifeclever.com%2F2006%2F09%2F07%2Fhow-to-dress-like-a-mac%2F) wrote about it and linked to it.
* It got on [del.icio.us](http://del.icio.us).
* And it got on [Techmeme](http://www.techmeme.com/060908/h0500).
