Oh man, as a brand new blogger, I'm the LAST person you want to ask for advice. ;) I really appreciate being able to get some new ideas for how to be better at this and it's nice to learn from the work of others rather than stumble along and make mistakes that could have been avoided. Thanks so much for sharing this!

I found a couple of tips and wanted to pass them on, the post will help you with your Followers button. Sometimes just finding an answer can help, so that's my contribution. This is a terrific theme linkup, Christina.

Thank you for hosting this link party! I have already learned a lot and I've only looked at a couple of the links so far.

This is a great idea and thank you for hosting. I have ups and downs on keeping up with blogging. I love to do it, just trying to be organized and using good time management. I start blog hoping and the time just flies, opps!! But I have found if I am working on more than one project, I like to create several posts and schedule them to post on different days. Well that is my little tip but I know there is a lot more to learn from this party!!
Take care

This is a great idea for a party. I know I will learn by reading the lined up posts.

I found your "name" tip to be helpful. Never thought about this before. I am going to look at my blog to see how easy it is or isn't to determine who I am.

I need to learn how to leave a "title" for the post I linked. I see all it says is "Susan."

Last February I read almost 100 blog posts and found 7 things that determined how long I stayed at a person's blog.

Christina at I Gotta Create! said...

We're getting some GREAT tips! Thank you everyone! I'm learning and trying new things :) There is only one correction I found in trying out the very last point in Tip #5 link. To open that new window Michelle speaks of, between those pointy brackets <>I had to type this: a href="http://your specific link text here.html" target="_blank"

I feel a little silly. I was blogging late and didn't read very well. Please feel free to remove my 40 by 40 post-those are my personal resolutions. I did link some posts about blogging tips.

OK - Now I've posted something that is actually about improving your blog! Thanks for the great blog help party!

One tip that I can offer is. . I do notice that blogger blogs more readily appear in google searches. Even if you already have a website or blog, I would make another similar blog in blogger. Who wouldn't want to be under Google's radar?
