How to Know When to Stop Blogging

Blogging isn’t for everyone, and everyone doesn’t need to blog. There are times when you should stop blogging, and there are times to take a rest from blogging.

Searching for Blogs and Blogging Resources on DMOZ-Google Open Directory

While I wasn’t looking, it appears DMOZ, the “largest human-edited directory on the web” is now in the hands of Google. Still, it’s a fascinating place to explore and search for all kinds of information and resources in a directory catalog form rather than just searching. Like a phone book, your search begins by categorized […]

Applaud Those Who Warn You: Your Blog’s Content Is Being Stolen

I’ve seen a huge jump in the number of bloggers stunned that they, little blogs on the blogosphere map, are having their content stolen and abused through their feeds.

Brag on Bloggers: Pam Blackstone, teacher, writer and photographer

I’m a fan of Pam Blackstone and her blog Random Bytes just celebrated “100 Posts and Counting”.

When I started blogging, […]

I’ve written a lot about comments, how to handle them, respond to them, and some guidelines for posting comments. One aspect of comments rarely covered indepth is the issue of editing your comments. Not “your” comments left on other blogs, but the comments you receive on your blog. As a general rule, you can judge […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Splogs – The Dark Side of Blogging

Blogging is wonderful. It is free spirited babbling of all types, shapes, and sizes. Unfortunately, like all positive and wonderful things, there are a negative, nasty side to blogs: Splogs. Unfortunately, because they are part of the dark side of blogging, I’ve written about them over the past year. In “Reporting Spam Blogs: Splogs”, I […]

Blogging Challenge: Write WordPress Tips

I was digging around Technorati looking for something to blog about and I put in “WordPress Tips”, a fairly innocuous tag that I was hoping would generate a bunch of interesting tidbits for me to bring to your attention to help you with WordPress. Well, thank goodness for David Esrati of Blogosopher. Without him, all […]

How Do You Know If a Blog Has Integrity?

CRE8PC on Usability and Holistic SEO writes in “Blog Usability for the Considerate Blogger”: How do you know if a blog has integrity? The blog that has reposted your posts, in full, whenever you write one is a copycat. Granted, they say that being copied is a form of acknowledgment that you’re doing something right. […]

When The Blog Breaks: Site Monitoring

A few months ago, it seemed like every two or three hours, my main site, Taking Your Camera on the Road, would go down.
