This week, your blog challenge is to become a teacher. Specifically, a teacher who teaches about blogging.
There is a lot more to blogging than rattling on about blog content, copyright theft, comment spam, and WordPress, though I know I tend to do a lot of that lately. So it’s up to you to tackle other aspects of blogging in this week’s blog challenge:
Teach us a blogging technique.
Teach us a how to, tip, or technique that you use to blog. Do you use special software or blogging programs? Do you use a particular text editor to write your blog posts?
How do you come up with your blog post ideas? How do you keep track of your ideas? How do you keep track of your blog?
Share with us how you designed your website or WordPress Theme. How you got the codes to work together with the database to pull the information into your Blog. About the customization you did.
Make screenshots, screencasts, video, and dig into the code of your blogging process and tell us how it is done.
Explain only one aspect, not dozens. Focus. Use specific command language: move mouse over link, click link, look at the right hand column, direction, command specific language. Step by step instructions, number them if you want. Keep it short, concise, and instructional.
