First of all..no, that isn't me.
Now, in the blogging world, I'm not an old-timer (referring to my time in blog-land)...but I have been blogging here at Lakeshore for over a year. So, anyway, I don't know if I am "qualified" to tell you what to do, but that's never stopped me before lol.
You may have this appearance at this point:
BUT, I really think you will benefit from this information.
Some bloggy tips for all bloggers:
1. Always link back if you are part of a linky party. It's just plain RUDE if you don't. And why would you want to be rude? You may think...oh, they'll never notice meeee. But they do. Many link parties look at all of the links that have signed up for the week and you really MUST do as your told and link up appropriately. Some of you don't know how, right? You just type in your link and then you don't know how to link back in your post? Well, all you do is type the name of the blog you are linking to for example:
At the Picket Fence
and then you take your mouse and hightlight those words...
and then you look up in the bar of offerings/choices and click on Link...you can't miss it, it's in blue and it's underlined.
Then a little window will pop up. You can then enter the http:// of the site you are linking back to and hit enter. That's it, you're done. It will look so much better and you will feel better too. It's the right thing to do.
2. Would you please remove the word authentication off your comments? You will have more comments for each post if you will do this. It's not a must but would make me soooo happy.
3. Don't be stingy with the Follow buttons. What's it gonna hurt you to Follow someone with Google Friend Connect? huh? If someone Follows you...do the kind thing and Follow them back for heaven's sake. And if someone is teetering on a 99...you really MUST push them over to 100 or 200 or 300 for that matter. It's simple science..lol. And it's just plain nice. If they don't have a link back within their information when you click the tiny little square on your blog, you can simply go to your Google box and type in the name of their blog and well, you can find it easily.
4. Don't leave ugly comments. Keep your ugly thoughts to yourself.
Don't get all fussy with me.
Turn that frown upside down...
There. That's better.
Ok...that's it for now.
Don't be hatin'. Share the blog loooove.
Lighten up. It's all good in blogland.
Lots of lovely ladies.
