A1) In many ways they are the same, and often times people like the Blog Roll List better than the Link List.

A5) I combined several email topics all about HTML in this one answer. Yes I am going cover basic HTML that applies to applications for Google Blogs, one of these will be how to add animations. I know a lot of people all ready know how to do many of the Google Tips I have covered, but when I started this Blog and the Google Tips, I did say, I will take this step by step as though you are setting up a new Blog, which many people are. It is estimated that a new Google Blog is created every minute and a New Follower is added every second. Even if you have had a Google Blog for a while, you might want to read the Google Tips anyway. Google changes how their Blogs function. There have all ready been several generations of Google Blogs and Google has another one in the works. Also NEW features are being added all the time by Google so it would behoove everyone to review their Blog layout for optimum performance.

Q6) You put a lot of emphasis on 'Followers' why is that?

Email Inquiries (1)
