and some are pretty simple and straightforward.
Being interviewed on blogs is a pretty good way to increase your visibility... it doesn't take up much time, you can do it from your own living room with your feet up, it's free and you don't really need any special knowledge. An interview will send people your way from the host blog, and in return you may be able to send some of your blog readers/Twitter followers/Facebook likers (strike through as appropriate) back to the host blog - a classic win-win situation if ever I saw one.
You don't need to wait to be asked. Look out for blogs which feature interviews and you'll almost certainly find a contact point on there as well as a bit of info about what they are looking for. So, email them!
Right now, there's an interview of mine over on the Crafty Pod blog - go on, pop over and have a look (see what I did there? It's only fair I send you over there for a look!). It's an interview with a difference - an image-only interview (although when you scroll over each image you will find a few words too). It's quite a clever format - we all love images, and they often tell a story, don't they? And the questions really made me think!
You may even want to join in yourself!
