Blogging Basics


I've been interested in the Blogging Basics website, particularly the podcasts with Shannon from Rocks in my Dryer, whom I admire very much for a number of reasons.

If you have blogging questions - whether technical or etiquette - it's an interesting read/listen. You'll have to scroll down to find all the podcasts - there are 3 now, but I thought they were worth listening to.

I've had questions for a long time about whether lurking is rude, linkbacks in the comment section, and deleting comments, and they answered those and more.

One thing I do agree with - - if you put your email on your blogger account, it sure does make it easier to respond individually to comments.


And now, I have a crockpot meal to go and prepare.

I'll go and give it a lookie and a listen. I checked them out after I first started blogging, but I haven't been back there for awhile.

Thanks.

Melissa said...

Thanks for the heads up! I'm always looking for great new ways to make my blog better :)

I like blogging basics.
I have not listen to the podcasts because, well, I'm busy.
Their Q/A goes form extremely simple to more complex stuff and I love it that "there are no dumb questions".

It always bugs me when people comment and ask a question and their email is "no reply". I came over from LDS Blogging Women by the way. Nice to meet you! (Yvonne and Melissa can vouch for me!)

Corrine said...

coolness, but I thought you wrote the book on blog etiquette?

Heather said...

What? There is ettiquette for blogging? Can't you just write up some Cliff's notes for me? Please????

Etiquette? Yikes. I'm probably breaking all of the rules.

Forever I've meant to create a website on basic HTML for blogging. How to make a link that isn't a mile long. How to size a picture. How to make a bullet list. Alas, I haven't had time to do this.

I'm happy to see someone is doing a pretty good job of teaching those concepts! Thank you for sharing!

Lippy said...

You know, that was a great tip (about the email address - never thought of it!)

I did wanna be first to comment, though, 'cause you cracked me up with that yesterday!

Tami Vincent said...

Happy super Tuesday! I have alot to learn, Im glad I have a place to go and learn what the Etiquette is.

Nancy Face said...

I'm too much of a lazy bum to listen, but I appreciate you for sharing it! You're awesome! :)

Bah. I refuse to listen. I don't want to know what rules I'm breaking. It's BLOGGING. There shouldn't be rules.

I know there are, but I just - don't wanna know. Life is complicated enough.

Thanks for the tip. I often think that I have no clue what I'm doing out here in blogging land. I'll check it out and hope that I'm not breaking to many rules.
