Blogging Tips

If you are new to blogging this will be a place where you can find great information about how to get started. I am always available to answer any questions you may have as well. I am still working on getting things set up around here. More to come! :)

As I grow my blog and help others I will be adding more of the resources I have used. If you have a tip leave a comment letting me know. If it is relevant and useful I will post it here.

I wanted to share a few tutorials that I have found helpful thus far. If you have something to add, leave a comment below.

  2. Kristy, you are a lifesaver!!! I just love all of your work and I think you are a hero for sharing! I am following you on TPT, love your products, have bought some and have more wishlisted! I'm really struggling starting my blog and figuring out how to collaboratively pin, etc. I have hundreds of TPT projects to be working on, but have spent all of the last two months trying to figure out the tech learning curve part of the endeavor. I'm not getting any time to work on projects! BUT I think there's hope now that I've found your blog!!!!!! I'll add more to my "Thank you! You are Amazing!" mantra later :)... But for now, here's a question: You mention on the left "Did You Know" that you change out your blog backgrounds. I've been wondering how to add one's own blog background. My blog doesn't look anything like what I want it to or envision. I'm so excited to have found help! Thanks! Laura @ lettersfromthereadingroom@blogspot.com

  5. Yikes! Just wanted any other clueless people like me to have a tip: Once I got rid of navbar I totally had no idea how to get to layout and other design features! Quite likely there are other ways, but one thing that finally worked was: Save the Design Dashboard to your Start Page (Windows 8) or Favorites. Then you can always access it from there. :)

    1. Oh! Good point. When you are logged into your google account there is an "apps" icon on the top right. Looks like a bunch of little squares. Click that and then scroll down until you see Blogger. Or you can just go to blogger.com and log in. :)

  6. I answered my question about how to add your own backgrounds to your blog: http://www.ehow.com/how_8544731_upload-background-blogger.html
    It worked!
    Sorry, though, how to enable a hyperlink is still on my to-do list!
    Happy blogging!
