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!

Following the News

Sometimes breaking news and current events present wonderful blog fodder.  Not every blog lends itself well to using current events but when they do a fair amount of blog fodder can be gathered.  I have been following the news by blogging about the Casey Anthony trial.  This trial lasted 33 days resulting in a rather unpopular outcome for protesters.  It was and remains a big human interest story that lends itself nicely as blog fodder for my personal blog. 

The time to use current events as blog fodder is as they are happening.  That is when the interest will be the highest.  It is not good enough to just blog about the event either.  This is the time you add your own opinion and commentary on the implications of that particular current event.  Refrain from using any picture or image related to the event uless you have specific permission to do so.  The exception to this is if you were at the actual event and were able to take pictures yourself but even then you have to be careful especially with respect to images of people used without their permission.
