Are You Being A More Effective Blogger By Tracking Comments?

Are You Being A More Effective Blogger By Tracking Comments?

When I leave comments on other blogger’s posts I like to be notified on any new comments that are posted.  Maybe it is just me?  But comments by other readers and response(s) by the blogger help my learning. Being notified of follow up comments means I can choose to continue the conversation by returning to the post to add further comments — this makes me a more effective blogger.  Needless to say, after 18 months of tracking comments, I’m ‘quite’…

Interlinking! Is it YOUR idea of fun?

Interlinking! Is it YOUR idea of fun?

Natasa describes interlinking archived posts as “a blogger’s day in hell!”  Strong words but I can’t think of ANY blogging task that horrifies me more than working through old posts to add links to new posts. It’s incredibly time consuming!  And if your main reason for linking posts is to get readers viewing more pages of your blog I’m not convinced of its benefit unless you have a high traffic blog where readers often visit older posts. BUT…if you want…

Dealing With Naughty Ning Neglect!

I’m BAD! Don’t adequately facilitate Nings I’ve created and don’t participate enough in Nings I’ve joined. Do they make shirts for people like me? UPDATE: Thanks to borborigmus (Vyt) we now have a shirt which he has given me permission to use. We can’t inflict me on more Nings just to complete Day 3: Search for and Join a Forum for the 31 Days to Building a Better Blog Project. Don’t get me wrong I’ve connected with people through Ning…

How Twitter is Being Used By Companies

How Twitter is Being Used By Companies

I’ve been researching how different companies use their twitter accounts to help me make decisions on how to effectively manage Edublogs Twitter account.  Ultimately how a company uses a twitter account is dependent on what they are trying to achieve by using the account. As an experienced twitter user I’ve never felt comfortable interacting with company twitter accounts.  Probably me but I prefer connecting with individuals.  So I’ve decided to share where I’m at to help others considering using twitter…

7 Things You REALLY Don’t Need To Know About Me

7 Things You REALLY Don’t Need To Know About Me

Been tagged by both Jarrod Robinson and Liz B. Davis for the meme 7 Things You Don’t Need To Know About Me so here goes: The reason why I majored in Botany, Biochemistry and Microbiology at University and NOT Zoology is I don’t like the idea of killing animals or looking at bloods and guts. Still consider it ironic that I’ve spent the past 21 years of my work life cutting up sick fish (DON”T tell anyone but the killing,…

Life is One Big Top Ten (2008)

As a blogger does it really make any sense to write a post a few days before Christmas? Probably not! But just want to blog and besides I owed Paul C a post for Life is One Big Top Ten (2008). He deserves it after dealing with extreme sibling rivalry between my two blogs 🙂 Life is One Big Top Ten (2008) rule is you get to choose their own topic. Top Posts End of the year means it’s a…
