Every once in a while I like to bring everyone up to speed here at the ol’ blog. Blogging is a community thing and every day there are new people movin’ in & getting involved. So for some of you this may be review, for some it’s all brand new.
Did you know that you can automatically stay up to date with all the latest and greatest from betterthanblank? You can, and trust me it makes you way more productive as a blogger and reader. You can subscribe to the blog, which will get you all the posts (like you’re reading now), and you can subscribe to the comments so you never miss the conversations that happen here. Looks like right now we’ve got 130 subscribers to the blog, and 1 to the comments – yay! The links to subscribe are right over there <— to the left, just click on them and add ’em to your reader of choice. And if this doesn’t make any sense to you, check out this easy to understand video.
Putting links to other blogs on your blog is a cool way of building community and meeting new bloggers. When I first started blogging one thing I spent a lot of time doing was clicking on links at the blogs of people I already found interesting, and guess what? I found tons more interesting blogs just by doing that. So every once in a while I update my links (I have a rotating sidebar of links that rotates through over 150 blogs & sites that I like). Want to be added to that? No problem! Just leave a comment with your blog or site and I’d love to add you – and just ask that you return the favor.
