So I'm not an expert blogger by any means, but I just came across a little something that I thought I'd share with everyone. It has to do with the follow button that you hit when you join someone's blog. Now you might not realize it, but if you click on those little icons showing your profile, your blog doesn't automatically get put on your page. This is bad!! If you've been posting comments to someone's page and they don't know who you are, then how will they connect with you? Sure they could send you an email (there is a little send a message thing that pops up), but how many people will actually take the time to write an email. asking who this stranger is posting on their blog? Hmmm? I probably wouldn't. But I would visit my follower's blogs without question. And they obviously want me to follow theirs.
So, to remedy this, when you join someone's blog, open the little options tab (make sure you're signed in) and click on site settings. This will bring up a page where you can add links (such as your blog or website) under your name. Now when anyone clicks on your picture, your profile will come up with a link to your blog. You can also sign in on blogs that you're already following and change your settings. I highly recommend to do this as part of that networking thing they talk about.
And, yeah, this post was kind of bleh, but stay tuned cuz come friday or saturday I will be done revising and then there will be a big celebration!! Til then...
