ON BLOGGING ~ Looking For A Mission...

Every other week here I try to share some type of blogging related knowledge that I have come across in my wanderings. I call them Blog Tips but they are really only as helpful to you if they are something you need or want to know.

So this week I would like to ask - what do you want to know? I don't sit here with all this blogging expertise or anything. I poke around on the blogosphere when I want to know how to do something. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I strike out. But I have fun trying to figure it out. Who would like to send me on a mission to learn something for them and then report back here how to accomplish it in easier to understand Bumble-speak?

I would love to learn what you want to know and add that lesson or tip to our Blogging Tips page here for future reference by other interested bloggers. Do share in a comment below or e-mail me if you are too shy to shout it out.

**And on a separate note - for those of you social bloggers, this month's Bumble Town Chat is taking place tonight (FRIDAY 03/18) at 8:30PM ET right HERE. Myself and the rest of the bloggers from our new group book blog, Quirky Girls Read, will be hanging out until 10PM to introduce ourselves, talk about favorite quirky reads and anything else that comes to mind. Stop in at any point for as long or brief as you like. And if you can't make it but would like to be reminded about future chats let me know and I'll add you to the e-mail list.**

I'm on a mission to figure things out for myself. In the past, as you well know, I reached out to other bloggers usually for tech help. I really lost interest in blogging, so in an effort to motivate myself back into it, I changed the look of my blog. I deleted certain things and added a few. Since I'm slow in learning tech stuff, it's taking me a while, but I'm slowly doing it. That being said however, you are first on my list of "HELP ME PLEASE" people.

I'm not even going to tell you what I need help with because you have tried to help me in the past and I've just sat here like a lump. It seems I have to "messing around with the blog" time, so it is just going to have to be the way it is. Reading and writing reviews and commenting is all I can handle I think.

As far as tonight, I will try to make it. We have family in town and this is their last night, so I may not make it. Your chats are fun!

I'm with Kaye!
I WISH I could be at the chat tonight, I LOVED the last one and this one looks like it will be AWESOME. ALas, I still have no computer at home :( Have a great chat anyway!

Dang! I missed another chat! I had the grandkids here for the night, so it's impossible to even hear myself think, much less spend time on the computer cyber-chatting.

Perhaps you could address how to rid myself of those pesky large spaces that happen when I put the pics left or right with text beside the picture. Everything's fine if I keep the pictures centered with text above and below, but really gets messed up when I try it the other way. Especially if I try to move things around after the original upload.

I sure had fun on the chat this week! I like having a subject rather than just chatting. Can't wait for the book discussion next month!

Anything you share is probably sopmething I don't know. I don't even know how to make a button. Not that I need one, but still. And even if you told me I wouldn't have the time to do it. I'm giving up sleep to hop around tonight as it is ;)
