This blog -- it is a changin'

So if you look around, you'll see some changes to this here blog.

I'm trying to boost my readership, so I've joined FeedBurner, Technorati, etc.

I'll still be doing my same old thing... I just hope to have more people reading. So tell your friends and neighbors. Sign up for my feed, sign up for my blog via e-mail, click various widgets. Have a blast.

And, if you don't mind, leave a comment from time to time. I love comments. Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy to know people are out there. And reading. Why just today, I've had folks from Asia and the United Kingdom, and even here at home read my blog. I love that.

If I wanted to review any of your posts and I was already a payperpost user how would I do it. I like your blog too!:)

Yay! Thanks for the comments!

I will put that button on all of my posts from here forward. I COULD go back and put it on all of my blogs since the beginning, I suppose, but...

You would also need to sign up at payperpost.com in order to review my blog. I'm just seeing how it goes. I like having readers, and thought that sounded fun. I hope people don't find it too intrusive...

After reading the blurb on its home page, I still don't get where the money comes from for payperpost.com. Please explain.

When you review a post of mine, the money you're paid comes from the folks who run payperpost.com.

When you write a review, etc., for one of the advertisers, the advertiser pays you.

At minimum, people are now talking about payperpost.com on my blog. Word-of-mouth does work. :)

Thanks for commenting on my blog! I like comments too (even though I'm brand new to blogging!) :-)

I am diggin' your blog. I would love to have more readers too. I started blogging on November 10th and it has been S L O W. Have you found feedreader and technorati have helped???

Queen Mommy,

Thanks for the comment. I love hearing that people "dig" my blog. Please come back! I looked at your blog, and I think you're doing pretty well!

I've found a big key is to blog, blog, blog, read, read, read, and comment, comment, comment.

Participating in Blog365 (which I think you're doing) will help quite a lot, I think. I subscribe to the MegaFeed, and skim articles and comment when inspired. Most of the time, that reader looks at my blog, even if just for a moment.

I am REALLY not an expert, but this is what I'm learning.

Oh, definitely sign up for FeedBurner. It tells you lots of neat stuff, if nothing else. Technorati hasn't helped a ton yet, but that's o.k. I see you have SiteMeter, which ROCKS!

Thanks again for stopping by. I hope to see you again. :)

I like your blog, too! Isn't blogging fun!?!

OMG you wrote BACK!! I am so lame, I know I can't help it. Medication, ya know. Anyway, thank you so much for the tips (and the comment!). I'll be back, merely every day!

Yay, a new regular reader. Thanks so much!
