A couple of things I've learned:
***I have my email address linked to my blog. Because of this, when I comment on a blog, the author can reply to that comment when she receives notification in her email account. I get these occasionally and it's fun to see a witty remark, arugment or answer to what I wrote. It's easy to do if you don't have it set already. Click on My Account next to your Dashboard option on your home page. Add or edit your email address there.
***I've always been kind of on the fence about the "following" thing. Feeling like I had been pushed back into middle school in the midst of a popularity contest, I avoided seeking followers or even posting the option on my blog.
Then, I started following people. Not knowing the exact benefits at the time, I signed on and started adding away. And, now I get it.
Following a blog is a fantastic tool. The Reading List on your Dashboard provides simple updates and by scrolling through them, you can decide what is worth reading and what you can live without. Brilliant! A time saver.....no more clicking on your favorites to see who posted. I've found that it works with blogger.com, typepad.com and wordpress.com. Probably more!
So, get organized and become a follower. It doesn't mean we're going steady. And, there's no guarantee I'll pay for dinner. But, it will save you time and you'll thank me later!
Anything else? Teach me something!
