I Love Blog It MORE!!!
I have to laugh because I "should have" read this thread a long time ago! It would have undoubtedly have saved a bit of time and aggravation. But "it's all good" because following my curiosity ...(I wonder what would happen if I did this? I wonder what happens is I ignore than warning message
)... has raised the bar for the rest of the site.
All in all I have had a LOT of FUN playing around with the things I can do with my blog. Originally I started it one Sunday afternoon when I was bored and couldn't think of some new content to produce (It's all about the content!) I swear it only took about twenty minutes to get it up and running. Not that I am any kind of a wiz, but more to the fact it was intuitively designed for people like me who don't have time to read the destructions.
I remember Ken talking a long time ago about the vision he had for using the BlogIt and it has taken some time to understand what he was trying to impart. After that Sunday afternoon, I did not do anything with the blog until months later that page started showing up in search results.
That got my attention!
I went back to it fresh and asked myself, How can I improve this, how can I optimize it, how do I get graphics here - you get the point. A few months later and it made to the top of the page results for organic gardening blogs. That got a lot of attention and a lot of links that have raised the overall ranking of the entire website. Building links takes a lot of time but the blog has generated hundreds of thousands of links that I did not build or submit for.
(Note; This is an overlooked fact... or maybe I missed the thread) - But there are a LOT of SBI'ers whole dominate industry/niche blogs because Ken has taught them how to put together content for the pleasure of the spiders)
P.S. Ali, I love what you have done with your L&F, it encourages me because I am going to get there sooner or later!
