Simple Blogging : 27.

OK so yeah I got extremely behind! Now, I’m just shooting for 29 because 29 out of 31 is OK, not perfect, but OK with me. Feature some of your favorite posts. I used to do yearly highlights when I was doing blog365, and it was a fun way to feature some of the posts

Simple Blogging: day 26.

I’m going to get right to the topic: Consider starting a forum and/or community. Disqus, can take care of this for you, but you can also use Reddit, for this, or even a free form host. This is something I’ve thought of doing if I ever decide to start a niche blog. There used to

OK, this next one is going to be one of those things where I list reasons for something. Email newsletters verses email digests. Reasons for both.

Simple Blogging: day 24.

I had my first appointment with my new primary doctor today! This is interesting because since I was a teenager, I’ve seen the same primary doctor. He left this year to do hospital and urgent care work, and of course that put me needing a new GP. They told me I was going to have

This is because when you migrate your blog to a different service, references to these files will be broken. If you have

Simple Blogging: day 20.

I voted today! I voted third party all the way down the ballot, (at least where I could.) This is a first for me, I’ve never done this before! Now, let’s get to the topic. Use related posts. This is another thing I need to get to doing. The thing is, there aren’t many related

Simple Blogging: day 18.

OK I’m just going to get right to the topic. Don’t rely on the stats your host gives you. Well, you shouldn’t completely rely on them anyway. Especially if there isn’t a way to ignore your own views, and Blogger doesn’t have this. I’m sure half the views it’s giving me are my own. Since

Simple Blogging: day 17

Blah, I’m 4 days behind. How did I let myself get 4 days behind? Usually I don’t do this to myself, as I have a certain theory about challenges. Oh hey, maybe I’ll use that to take on the topic of challenges in general! Blog challenges are lots of fun! It’s especially fun getting to
