If communcation about communication is coined METAcommunication and memory about memory is metamemory than blogging about blogging would be metablogging, right!? So this is what this post is all about: A blog about blogging. Click the link below for some very helping 411 about blogging on WordPress.com
I can’t tell you how many times I click on someone’s WordPress profile on Gravatar. In fact, I do this ALOT because I like to visit or click on everyone’s blogs who “likes” or comments on one of our posts here at QL. I can’t say I do it 100% of the time but I probably clear 90% of them on a week to week basis pretty consistently. I see likes and comments as modern-day, fan mail, and I really appreciate those who take the time to give us a virtual thumbs up or a pat on our collective blogging backs.
Our WordPress.com profiles are powered by Gravatar and come with the option of creating online identities with a picture, bio info, links and emails. I can’t tell you how many WP profiles I click on every week that don’t have their respective blogs, websites, or affiliated projects linked! If you are serious about people reading your work or finding the cool stuff that you are affiliated with you should definitely take the time to link those URL’s to your profile. Failing to do so cheats those projects out of easy traffic and people finding your stuff.
If you have a WP profile and you have blogs or websites that you’re working on that you’d like people to find and read more about, take the time to link those URL’s on Gravatar. It’s easy, it’s smart, and it’s free.
Metablog done. I’m not even going to charge you for the free advice.
