So this morning I thought I'd visit my blog because I've not been paying it much attention recently.
The first thing I always do it take a look at the other blogs I'm following to see if they've got anything new going on. That was at about 9:30 this morning and it is now about noon. Where did the last three plus hours go? Well, lemme tell ya.
I started in one blog and followed some links to other blogs. I even posted replies to a couple because I was so impressed by what I was reading. Here is what has confused me:
Why don't all blogs have one-click ability to follow them like Bogspot does? Why do I want to sign up for an RSS feed versus an email notification versus a 'follow this blog' button? What is the point of Twitter? And what the heck is a Tweet? That one REALLY isn't penetrating my brain.
While I'm at it, is there such a thing as A Bloggers Etiquette? If someone I don't know appears on my list of followers am I supposed to thank them? Should I automatically become a follower of THEIRS (which takes us back to the earlier question about all blogs not having one-click following capabilities)?
HELP!! Is there a 'Blogging for Dummies' book? Or even an 'Emily Posts Guide to Blogging Etiquette'? I was afraid of blogging for such a long time because I feared it would be too complicated. So now here I am and I'm terrified about doing it ALL WRONG.
