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!

Behind the Scenes Work

As you know I am prepping my blogs to move from the sub-domain of blogspot.com to their own domains.  I decided to do this for a few reasons and once I made the decision I took it a bit further.  As a result there is what I would consider a fair amount of behind the scenes work involving coding and tweaking that my readers don't even see.  They may notice my blogs have slightly lower loading times and they may notice an element or two changed or missing but for the most part all these behind the scenes tweaking are just that, very much behind the scenes and not noticeable.  Here's a few things I've done across all six blogs:

  • added the rel="nofollow" tag where appropriate
  • removed the label cloud
  • added a grab this badge code
  • checked for dead and broken links
  • modified meta tags
  • fixed the share buttons (coding problem)
  • worked on adding missing alt tags on some photos (need a lot more work here!)
  • removed a few questionable links
  • did a bit of coding clean-up
