But before I do that I want to clarify my intentions, terms and conditions. Instead of including these on every post, I'm going to note them all now. That way I can link to this post instead.
|The old bat lays out some guidelines for blogging tips posts|
- My intention is to help my fellow book bloggers make their sites more sharable and in some cases, more SEO friendly. I am not in any way trying to "steal" business from the professionals. If anything I plan to send business their way.
- With that in mind, I want to clarify that I do not make any kind of living, much less one in webdesign, SEO or journalism. When possible, I will link to the experts for clarification of my advice.
- I apologize in advance for any slight I give because I can not remember or find the bookmark for the exact source of my information.
- I AM an expert in researching and testing. Any advice I give will be about changes I have already researched, instituted and tested on my blogs.
- These articles will NOT contain any affiliate links. Any website, service or product I link to will be ones I have tested, like and use. Not because they are paying me.
- These articles are aimed primarily at Blogger/Blogspot users. I don't use Wordpress. I prefer Blogger because it allows me complete control over my template so I can advance my knowledge of CSS3 and HTML5 at my own pace.
- For all of your Wordpress needs I highly suggest Ashley at Noze Graze. She really knows her stuff!
- No worries though. There will be something for everybody. Some suggestions will be general and apply to all platforms.
- If and when I include any snippets of code, use at your own risk. Sometimes I will change or add to a snippet of code I obtained from somewhere else. I'll always link to the original before I show you my changes.
- ALWAYS backup your template before using anyone's code. I can't stress this enough. I use an Awesome Inc. template as my base, though I've modified it well past any resemblance to the original, but all codes do not work on all blogger templates.
- As a rule, my widgets, codes, and changes apply only to the PC versions of my blogs. I use a separate template for mobile and let Blogger handle that version of my blogs. A few suggestions may be aimed at being mobile friendly but they won't involve any coding.
- Questions are welcome. If you see any element of my blogs that you'd like to use on your own, just ask. If possible I'll include the instructions or source links to the instructions in my next post.
