Improving Your Blogging With The 31 Day Project!

Improving Your Blogging With The 31 Day Project!

One of my Top personal blogging I want To-Do’s is to revisit the 31 Day Project by working through Steve Dembo’s 30 Days to Being A Better Blogger! Participating in The 31 Days to Build a Better Blog project by Darren Rowse (Problogger) in August 2007 was life changing for me.

Life is One Big Top Ten (2008)

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…

Been feeling frustrated because my personal blog, Mobile Technology in TAFE, and The Edublogger look similar. Felt each blog needed it’s own unique feel so readers could easily tell them apart. Then Anne Mirtschin commented that her third most ‘hit’ page/post is her ‘About page’. And my blogs? Second most ‘hit’ page/post on Mobile Technology in TAFE and thirtieth most ‘hit’ page/post on The Edublogger. Really loud noise in my head said “Mobile Technology in TAFE blog needs blog make…

Blogging, Chocolate Murray Cods And Let’s Not Forget Bubble Wrap!

Blogging, Chocolate Murray Cods And Let’s Not Forget Bubble Wrap!

Let’s be honest, I’m not sure about others, but I don’t expect gifts when I do presentations but it’s always nice to receive.

Writing blog posts from mobile devices

I absolutely love being given challenges. So was totally pleased when Alice Mercer sent me a message in twitter asking if I could tell her how to write blog posts to Edublogs using her mobile phone.

So simple go to posterous, set…

Comment Challenge: Day 5 – 10

Sorry still trying to catch up on the Comment Challenge! While I’ve written my reflections for the Challenge for Day 1 – 10 on the same day I’ve broken it into two posts to make it more readable.

I think this is a reflection of human…
