Neat blog for bloggers

I have been a little out of it the last couple days (just had a colonoscopy, everything's fine), so have no fun quilting photos. But I was looking up how to put a signature at the end of my post like some of you have -- very snazzy! -- and found Tips for Bloggers. Vin, who has a great signature at the end of his posts, runs the blog and explains how to do all those things you want to do on your blog but don't know how. (Well, *I* don't know how!) He covers adding Paypal buttons, social bookmarks, signatures, multiple photos, and much more. And he responds to questions people send.

Still haven't put up my own sure-to-be-cool signature, but I will ...

I did change my comment settings. Spam arrived thick and fast when I first had a blog, so I quit allowing anonymous comments and started requiring people to type in those crazy letters. But I've noticed many people don't have those restrictions anymore. I wonder whether google's awesome spam filters help prevent problems these days? Anyhow, I changed my settings a few days ago and so far, so good.

(Apologies to my non-blogging friends and family who read this post, but I'll be back to quilt photos soon.)

The beauty about Wordpress is you can moderate a person's first comment. After that they can comment with no probs. Wordpress also has something called Askimet which picks up all comments with more than 2 links, i.e the very very nasty ones!

Despite that, I miss Blogger sometimes, especially when Wordpress decides to throw a wobbly like today :(

Thanks for visiting my blog. And for the tips on fixing up my blog. I've been going along with only hazy ideas of what I'm doing.

Good for you for having a colonoscopy (my mom had colon cancer)! Glad everything is okay.

Thanks for the link ~ I'll have to check it out!

Take care.

Hey Cheri -

Thanks for the tips. I'll check it out. I feel accomplished if I get a photo on my blog!

Always learning, right? :-)

Thanks for the link. Here's another similar site, with a slightly gentler name but actually somewhat more technical: Tips for New Bloggers
