Text for Answering the Comment and Blog Post Widget Issue

Check to make sure the comments are turned on in all three places:
1. On the post options below the post editing window in the post editor
2. On the layout page, if you click on the edit link on the post box (the big one in the middle)
3. On the comments page in your blog settings.

If you have turned all on and cleared your cache and cookies and reloaded the page and they still don't show up, then you might have corrupt blog post widget and Bonnie has a fix for that on her blog.

Testing Email Formatting

I writing this to see if the formatting I put here like Bold, Underline, Italics, and color come through on my blog directly from the email or not.

And they all did...including the lame font that my Yahoo account defaults to.

Annoying Readers

The best thing to do is ignore them...delete their comments if you are set up to accept comments from anyone and then just ignore them until they go away like most nits will after a time.....

Meta Tag Example

This is the generic version of the meta tags I have in my blogs for reference.

Put these tags just below the opening tag of the head section and take out the space between the < and meta and the / and >

<br />< meta content='text Google gave me when I submitted blog' name='verify-v1'/ > <br />< meta content='INDEX, FOLLOW' name='robots'/ > <br />< meta content='Yourname' name='author'/ > <br />< meta content='text words separated by commas' name='keywords'/ > <br />< meta content='text for title that some readers will also pick up' name='title'/ ><br />< meta content='text description but some use keywords here as well' name='description'/ >

Testing Time and Date Visibility

Testing out whether I can remove the date from the top and bottom of a post by unclicking the date section in my blog post settings on the layout page.

Yes you can but it deletes them off all the posts, can't do it just for individual ones...

My Instructions for Getting Traffic

First you need to make sure you have comments allowed in your blog settings. Allowing comments and making comments on other blogs is the first step in getting your url out there and finding other bloggers that have similar interests to you.

Second, you need to list your blog with the big search engines...go to google and/or Yahoo and any other one you want to use and do a search for the terms "submit url". You will get directions from them on how to do that for their services and that is the first step to getting traffic. The search engines will not crawl your site for ages otherwise, and even with the submission it takes some time.

Then, you need to start putting links to other sites/blogs on your site and hope that they reciprocate because the more you are linked the better your traffic will become and the better your page ranking with the search engines will become. You can become a member of blogging communities (there are many out there) as well and that will help you ge…

My Instructions for Language Settings Issue Updated 4/14/11

Okay, a few things. First, you need to go into your browser settings and make sure that English is chosen as your preferred language. It helps if you are using English that it is the only one listed and that it is the US version even if you aren't in the US. It seems to stick the best.

Okay, if you are logged into blogger and on your blog's main page, you can click on the little blogger icon on the left top corner and it will take you to your dashboard. When you are on your dashboard, you should see your blog names below and your profile picture and name to the right.

After doing that, you need to go to each blog's settings area and set the language there as well. Underneath the title to your blog, there should be a blue "new post" button. The third link to the right from that is the one for the blogs settings, click on that. Formatting is the third link over from the left underneath the settings tab (which should be where you are if you came from the dashboard). …

FAQ: Creating a New About Me Element Updated April 2011

Make a post just like you would any other post on your blog, but use it as place to put your profile info. You can put links (using the hyperlink funtion) in there, any text you want to include and a picture as well. You can even put links to your other blogs if you wish. Then publish it, give it a date back in the past if you don't want to show up on your main front page. Note the URL of this particular post.

Now go to your page layout/design page (assuming you are using the new templates and not the old classic version). Go to your actual About Me box (the one there by default), and click on the remove page element. It will remove it from this blog only, not any of your others (you can do this at the end if you want to test it out first to make sure you are happy with the results). Then click on Add a Page Element to your sidebar. Pick the HTML/Javascript one. Put in the title space, ABOUT ME or MY PROFILE.

In the text area, put in this <a href="url of post that contains p…
