I am in a pickle

I am new to AR and blogging in general.  Blogging is a new word to me ... never mind all these other "Greek" words I am learning!  The more I read, the more I realize how little I know.  It is just overwhelming :(

I guess my question is, after you learn a bunch of this stuff, can you go back and fixed your "messed up" newbie blogs? 

Does any one have a mental list of things that absolutely should be done with each and every blog?  Like tags, etc.

 

AS A SIDE NOTE:  I do know how to add clip art and links into my blogs.  I am working on an Apple laptop at my cousin's.  You can't even left click to copy and paste on this crazy thing .... or I'd put a link to one of my fancierblogs!  How do people use these??

I recently cleaned up the closing ad at the end of each of my blogs. I know some people hate the ads...but when blogs syndicate out into the internet via localism, a blog becomes a miniature website in my opinion.

Simple to do, go to your blogs, find one, click edit, do whatever and save. Same with the tags. Before you clean up your tags, go search for blogs on AR that mention long tail key words. Read them. Then make your changes.

All the best, Vickie

Jennifer, Welcome to ActiveRain first of all....and I confess that I have went back and edited a couple of my posts. The main thing is to just keep blogging.

PS you can also edit your comments too....like I am doing right now after I scrolled back up and saw your kitty! I just love kittys!

Hi Chuck!  As always, thanks for your insight.  And for the encouragement!

<>Vickie - I have long tail key words on my list of items I need to research.  thanks for the great advice!  What do you mean by the closing ad at the end of each blog?

Lori - Didn't know you could edit comments!  Yes, that picture of me is pretty accurate.  I am pretty laid back and love my cats!  Thanks so much!  JENNIFER

Jennifer - I am just learning, too.  I have gone back to relevant posts and 'fixed' them, especially to use tag keywords in the title, and bold or italicize them in the text - it does help with Google.  Good luck, if you need any help, just send me an email.
