This is my first month blogging. I've read blogs all over the web, but until I attempted to write one I had no idea how big the blogosphere actually was. Since I started, I have been researching exactly how to go about this. I've visited numerous communities and found all types of blogs and I am feeling quite small in this vast alternate universe. It is so confusing.
I want to introduce myself and my blog and extend an invitation for critique and discussion on my initial writing for Blogher. I write a blog on joy at http://pursuitofajoyfullife.wordpress.com/. Thanks for welcoming me into your community! I love it already!...more
I recently tried to buy my own domain through blogger (I know), which registered my blog name through e-nom. I have never been able to access it, always getting the message that someone else owned my domain even though I received a receipt for my purchase. After an e-mail to both and a help center ticket with no response I've sent another e-mail hoping they will refund my money, but it doesn't look likely as per their all domain sales are final line....more
Hi everyone. I have been blogging on my personal blog for about 2 years and have written on and off for a local business for a bit over a year. I have recently become their regular blogger (yay!) and am finding I really need a couple of tools to keep myself efficient and keep up with the schedule.
I have been using Evernote to draft blog entries, keep ideas in one place, and keep a back-up of entries in case there is a technical problem....more

Hello everyone! I'm new here and a little lost in BlogHer, definitely have to take some time to find my way around better. I'm a fairly new blogger. An entire blog critique would be awesome, but I'm hoping to fix my known shortcomings first. For example: my photography (though vastly improved in a few months) needs a lot of work. I've read a lot on the subject and watched lots of helpful videos, but my problem is that, while I can tell the photos aren't that great, I can't tell what exactly is wrong with them in order to fix it. ...more

I feel like I have...Blogger's Depression. That one where you feel like there's no hope for the blog and it won't have a good readers base. All those thoughts have been running through my mind. So, my question is: how do you keep things alive between you and your blog?
Peace and Fangs,Alisha

Has anyone had a book published? Did you do self-publishing? If so, which company did you use? How was your experience? I'm considering having a children's book self-published but have heard it might ruin the crediblity of the book because I had to do it myself. Anyone know anything? Thanks
