Far be it from me to claim to be an expert blogger. I know I'm not. But I've noticed a couple of things which seem to be widely missed, so I thought that I'd publish a (very) occasional series of quick tips in the hope that this might help one or two of my readers.
First up: displaying blogs on your Blogger profile.
You can choose which blogs are displayed on your profile. Many users (and ex-users) of Blogspot/Blogger seem to miss this tiny piece of customisation. If you move to a new blog address, if you leave Blogspot for (say) Wordpress, or if you're part of a private blog, you can tell your profile not to display links to these old, disused, or private blogs.
- Go to your Blogspot dashboard.
- Click on the 'Edit Profile' link beneath your photo.
- Around the fourth line, there's an option called 'Show my blogs', with a linkSelect blogs to display. Click it.
- Remove ticks next to any blogs which shouldn't be displayed publicly (e.g. blogs you don't use any more, or which are invitation-only).
In other news, I'm due to be featured on tomorrow's Meet'n'Greet Monday over at Midday Escapades. If you're not already familiar with Lynn's blog, you should definitely go and visit her, she's lovely.
