New Column ~ How To: Practical Help For Writers, Bloggers & You!

People have been asking for help with a problem, a program, or just what does some term mean. So I decided to add a column dedicated just to giving solutions, cool programs or tips I've learn.

I'd love everyone to participate, so if you have a favorite program or help tip, please use my contact me link above and let me know.

These step-by-step directions on Networking your blog comes from Alanna Moses.

Thanks so much Alanna for your help in solving this problem of getting my blog on both my Facebook sites.
