AHA! I see said the blind Lynn…

I can read my subscribed blogs just by going to my account and asking to read them.  Duh!  Then, it posts the most current by the day.  GoogleReader has a neat play feature, but I was inundated with tons and tons and tons of information. Too much of a good thing.  I will go back and forth for awhile and see which is really the best way to filter my information.

  1. Hi Lynn,
    I see you have started early! I am trying to get into the groove of things. This is my first time doing a blog and to be honest, I am lost. I have been navigating to learn the environment of my blog pages. How do you add categories? How do I add the links on my blog for week one assignment? Thanks for any help you can give.

    • Kimberly,

      I am definitely not an expert. What I have figured out so far…

      You can add categories and links through your Dashboard. The Dashboard is apparently the engine of the blog site. You can decide what widgets to add, the categories to select and also what links to add. You can also subscribe to other blogs and read them through your blog reader, rather than google reader. I think I like google reader better only because it has the player, which I like. Also, when I use the reader through my blog it throws me directly into the blog I’m reading about. Then, I have to navigate backwards.

      Anyway, I hope this is a little helpful. I’ve been using trial and error for the last few days. Now I have to get focused on that discussion post. Oops. Information overdrive.

      • Hi Girls,

        I played around with the “categories” widget in WordPress on Saturday. It took me a bit to figure it out, too. I think what you need to do is add the widget to your page. When you create a new blog post, on the right side of the page you will see the categories area and an option at the bottom to “add new category.” After you write your post, you can click a category button(s) to categorize what you’ve written and add categories as necessary. Blog readers can then select the categories of blogs on your site they are interested in reading.

        I’m not used to the widgets thing yet. Like any new program I suspect it will take some messing around with it to figure it out.

        Nice blog, Lynn.
