Thing 19 tells us to post a link to something that we have created and see what happens.
One thing suggested was to sign up to bit.ly to both shorten and track the link. I have seen bit.ly links all over the place, but had never really considered using them myself. Signing up for an account was super easy – I signed up through Twitter in (literally) seconds and then pasted my link text into the box and the top with the orange fish (why an orange fish I have no idea) and ta da – a pane opened on the right with my new link in it.
So here is my link. This link is to my dissertation on Ancient Greek runners, published on Kindle. And if you hurry and click-through in the next couple of days, it’s free!
My link aside, bit.ly looks like a very interesting tool – I hope some people click on my link so I can see what the stats look like!
