ON BLOGGING ~ Best Of Blogging Links...

Today marks the final day of Armchair BEA, the online event for book lovers who could not attend the Book Expo America conference happening this week in NYC. The Book Blogger Convention occurs today as well so the event coordinators have asked that we blog about blogging today. How convenient since Fridays always feature blogging topics here at The Bumbles Blog! I thought that today, since we may have some new visitors stopping by, I would feature a Best of Blogging list highlighting some of our more popular and hopefully helpful posts:


  • What The Hell Is HTML? - An intro. to the basics of HTML

  • Hitting The Links - How to create a link in text

  • Photo Shop - Image compression and resizing tips

  • Analyze This - Using Google Analytics (Part 1 of 4)

  • Conquering Your Feed Reader - Managing your dashboard/reader

  • Get Creative - How to use Creative Commons

  • When Short Is Truly Sweet - Keyboard shortcuts


  • How To Kick Writers Block To The Curb - Brainstorming technique for writing

  • My Blogging Bible - Using a blogging journal

  • Combatting Blogger Procrastination - The function of scheduling

  • When It's Okay To Be A Tease - The impact of post titles

  • Group Hug - Group blogging


  • Reader Dumping - Marking "All Read"

  • A Major Award - Blog awards

  • Pet Rocks - Personal blogging pet peeves

  • LOL - Text speak

  • What's Wrong With A Following? - Promoting follower figures

  • It's Not You, It's...Well Actually, It's You - Deciding to dump a blog

  • May I Have Your Attention Please - Are lengthy posts a deterrent

  • Leave The Hammertoe Out Of It - Too much information

  • I hope you find something to enjoy from the sampling above. Stop by right here every Friday for a Blog Tips or alternating BlogAnon confessional. And if you have a post about blogging to share, please include a link in your comment!

    If nothing else Molly, I just bumped up your stats for amount of time spent on your site. I spent the last hour or so going back and reading a lot of those posts again. It was a good refresher.

    By far you are the best blogger out there with our best interests in mind!

    You always have such good info... and now it's all here in one place, thanks... I think I really need some help right now. Have been hitting a weird place in my blog lately.
    Wish I could have been in NY this week.

    Thanks for putting together all of these links to great posts... some of which I've read, and some of which are new to me.

    One in particular, on dumping blogs, really hit home because I am considering dumping a long-time blog friend because her recent posts are all too self-serving (help me make money, follow me, etc.) She has one, sometimes two, posts a week that are still of interest to me, and even those are becoming "monetized." So, I may have to put her in "read only" mode, or dump her altogether. Your posts is helping me with the guilt! Thanks.
