A Bit Of Better Blogging

When I started blogging, and it's still not really very long ago, my blog looked like this:



But since then I found out more about what I think looks good and I've found new ways of doing things. I just love to learn something new; and because my most clicked on link ever was this one about bloggers block I'm guessing that you do too. So I've gathered up some of my favourite links and tips on blogging and I'm posting them today for  (I hope) your blogging pleasure:
and a few other useful bits:


So, that's it for now. I'm going to keep on collecting and, if you like, I'll do another roundup of favourites soon. Let me know if you see anything great!

Wow, these all look amazing and interesting and helpful - thank you :-) I have no useful links, sorry.... I just make it up as I go along! Does it show?! ;-)

Going to need to go make a cuppa and have a read through these I reckon :) Thanks Sian and for making me go 'ooooh, meeee!' at seeing my name in your post! :P

Thanks for the list Sian! My first click was for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo link, but too many spoilers for the movie - so I'll go back to it later.
My favorite change you've made is your picture - I love the current one.
Working on my blog is on my list of things to do (but since it's below all my art projects, I haven't gotten to it yet). I really need to tag/organize my posts and update my blogs I love list.

Oh, fantastic! I've just been through my blogger's block (winter - bleurgh) but I'll keep these in mind for those blank moments. And, of course, winter comes around, doesn't it? :)

I think my blogger's block is reading everybody else's blog and having no time to do anything. These look like wonderful links, to be read while the family watches TV, definitely starting with martawrites. It's amazing where not being able to click your fingers leads.

JO SOWERBY said...

wow u have found some amazing things sian. if i add anything else to my blog following list i'll never catch up!!!!! glad the small one liked the comment about the dolls. i thought they were fab and i'm the children who receive them in haiti will treasure them forever. i saw a little girl on the news the other day who is over here having medical treatment for a severe skull and bone infection, maybe she could make another one for her?

What a wonderful list! I've bookmarked it so I can browse. I've been meaning to pick up a copy of Artful Blogging for a while. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of Blogging Bliss.

Laura Y said...

Oh! These are great links. I think I used two of these to start the remodel on my blog too. I go back an forth between clean and modern like your blog and crammed full of scrappy things. Dualing personalities I guess!
