This post combines our series of tutorials for people new to blogs. Because blogs look like a normal website, but work in some counter intuitive ways, it can be a bit confusing for newbies. Hopefully these Tips will help get you up to speed.
We’ve moved the actual posts, but put the links here to have them in place. You will find this same information by clicking on the Blog Help tab at the top of our site.
- Part I Navigation In this first lesson we introduce the basics. How to differentiate between the various views seen in the blog and how to move back and forth.
- Part II Links, Landing and Leaving In this second lesson we describe how to find the right link to a post or the blog, so that you can share it with others. Also how to get around a new blog when you ‘land’ there from an external link.
- Part III Comments, Searching & Tags In this third lesson we describe how to read and leave comments, plus find old and new (to you) posts with the Category, Tags and Search tools.
- Part IV RSS Feeds In this fourth lesson we introduce RSS Feeds, and show you how to set one up with a subscription to our blog updates. You can also use these to get updates from many of your other favorite websites.
OK….this is still way more than my mind wants to try to figure out (and how can I do spell check here?)……I will just poke around and see where it gets me!
