    Blog mistakes that also make you look dumb – not doing the recommended spell check (#28) to catch the mistake in #2. Sorry.

    As a relatively new blogger, this information is really helpful. I am always looking to engage my audience. I post questions at the end of every post to (hopefully) initiate responses. I do not have enough of a following yet that people comment. What do you recommend to get people talking?

    Hi Heidi,

    It is a great compilation, thank you for that, I will include it in my beginners resource page for sure. However I would add a section about SEO. Designers often forgot about it and I believe that SEO is still an important factor. Proper permalink usage part of it, but there is much more than that. Everyone should have a theme/skin/platform which flawlessly allow filling of meta tags , , as part of the publication process.

    Great post! Blogging can be such a great tool if used effectively.

    Even if your blog is loaded with great writing and look amazing, it will all be for nothing if people can’t find it. Backlinking and using SEO rich keywords are sooo important.

    Nice blog here Heidi. Having a clean blog is not as easily achieved as we’d think. These are ideas that I will remember as I work on my own blog; thanks for the tips!

    This is a great topic. I talk about design sometimes on my personal blog as it relates to SEO. The way you present content can make a difference. Most people can employ simple tweaks like increasing white space or font size.

    The great thing about the internet is that their are so many resources for education. If you are on a budget check out the tutorials you can find. A little bit of CSS knowledge can help customize your blog without having to mess with the underlying structure.

    The CSS Zen Garden is a great resource.
