  1. Wow…that’s the hardest thing isn’t it? Getting people to pick your little blog out of the millions that are out there?

    Jim…thanks for verifying this “still scared of computers” person to go ahead, and dive it! Wish me luck.

    • Yes it is, which is why I suggest that for many people, starting with their social network is the easiest way to begin to build a following.

      That is what makes the updated publicize feature so great.. You set it up once, then every time you post, your network hears aboutit. From there you have the opportunity to begin to build a following, and from there a base to draw others in.

  2. Thanks for this post Jim, I did the same thing and posted PRESS THIS feature as well. To me it’s a way of sharing the joys of bloggers and blogging.

    • Well, I feel I must point out that I am just reblogging someone else’s content. I take no credit for the content (or the feature enhancements described in it).

      But I do think the feature enhancement makes promoting your blog easier, and it is important to be promoting your work (in appropriate venues).
