TexWisGirl made suggestions that make sense for all bloggers, and gave tips regarding things some people may not be aware of. She discussed the frustrating "Word Verification", including how to turn it off. She made suggestions as to alternatives, if one fears Spam or Anonymous comments.
Other things she suggested included adding your email address to your profile, so people can contact you regarding questions or comments. TexWisGirl also discussed blogger concerns such as ways to follow others and keep track of their blogs.
She reminded us of the purpose of memes, and the importance of the way we present our blog. Finding "kindred spirits" who share and like what we do is a special part of blogging.
I suggest reading her post. I believe she speaks for many of us, as bloggers. She said it all, and quite well. Please visit TexWisGirl and read her blog post about blogging. Then read the rest of her blog and enjoy her beautiful photography.
