Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

The Ever Changing Blog Badge

The blog badge (button) is a 125 x 125 graphic used to advertise your blog.  Any blogger involved in a blog advertising network has one, either generic or custom made.  What I have noticed is some bloggers change their badges more oven than the majority of folks change their underwear.  What is with that?  You badge becomes part of your blog brand so while running a special temporary promo badge in addition to your normal badge may be a good idea especially if you are running a contest or have just done a major overhaul of your blog.  However, I feel that other than that the blog badge really shouldn't be changed significantly.  The reason for this is if you've participated in one blog advertising network then quit that one and move onto another one, members from the first one will still recognize your badge giving you a bit of traffic.  If the blog badge is kept the same or very close there is a better chance of getting traffic across the blogosphere as well because it is recognizable out of familiarity.
