When I started my blog in April of 2009 I had lots of questions, but I knew that blogging would be one of the best ways to tell my story. I choose Blogger because I was already a Gmail girl (you don't have to have Gmail to use Blogger, but they are sister companies) and a lot of the blogs I was reading also used Blogger.
I emailed lots of questions to those Bloggers I respected, and follow the 4-H moto "Learn to Do By Doing." And really it wasn't that hard!
Now I am the one that gets asked lot of questions so here are a few resources I have come up with.
How to get started.
How to start your #agblog - Part 1
How to start your #agblog - Part 2
How to change your blog, and column widths - this can really improve the design of your blog
How to add pages to your blog
How to get responses to your blog comments
How to an image (favicon) to your url bar
Both of these resources can be used for any kind of blog.
I talk about the importance of using Google Analytics on your blog. Less, than 1 percent of all blog readers will comment on your blog. Google Analytics helps you track how many people are reading your blog, what posts are the most popular and how your readers are finding your blog ( ie. google searches, facebook, twitter, etc.) One of the comments I hear the most is no one is reading my blog! Google Analytics will show you that although people might not be commenting lots are reading.
Below is an awesome step-by-step resource I have passed onto many people
