Further Set-Up for Blogging. April 11th, 2012
I’ve seen a lot of the features that we just added to the blogs on other blogs around the internet, but I’ve never used them myself: specifically putting links in the sidebar to other sources, or putting an RSS feed for a curated set of links up as well. It seems like these are two really great tools for connecting with other blogs and users all over the world and interwebs–when you link to someone else’s blog or resource, not only are your readers sent to their site, but also maybe (by the Commutative Property of The Internet) some of that traffic will find itself reading your blog as well.
The set-up itself was relatively easy. The WordPress user interface is very easy to use–dragging and dropping, checking boxes, etc. There is nothing really mystifying or difficult about it–again, great for making blogging accessible to people who maybe aren’t already entrenched in the world of computer programming or html and other languages.
