Darren Rowse explains the concept of highlighting your best blog posts.
Simply search through your archives for key posts that would be relevant to first time readers and put them together as a post that ties them together. Then it’s a matter of linking to that page in key places on your blog. In a sense this is what I’ve done with a number of the links in my header boxes, especially the Top 20 Posts at ProBlogger links which is one of the most read posts on the blog and sends readers deeper into the site many times over.
