    Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.
    Is it difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick.
    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure
    where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the
    screen in Opera. I’m not sure if this is a formatting
    issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but
    I thought I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
    Hope you get the issue solved soon. Thanks

    Yes, know matter how much you know or think you know about blogging, most of us are only just scratching the surface. That’s where great sites like Smart Blogger come into play. Read, absorb, and ask questions. Wash, rinse, and repeat.
    I will share this with my author’s group in our next get together, and on social media. Thank you again for the clear skies and direction!

    Your article provided relatable and logical steps to raise the sails and catch the winds instead of paddling my little heart out heading into them and making little progress.
    Loved this post about blogging. I thought I dove into blogging and social media to market my book, but turns out I barely tiptoed in! It’s not a pond, it’s an ocean ruled by the tides, trends and I need to pay attention, learn to navigate it.

    Regarding your last comment: Yeah, as Heather Sanders helpfully relayed (hi, Heather!), this article was written by me. Sadly, too many people out there in the interweb have no qualms about stealing the work of others. Shame.
    I definitely recommend doing so. Every time someone leaves you a comment, it’s an opportunity. An opportunity to make a connection. An opportunity to earn a lifelong fan. I definitely recommend you take advantage of it.

    Great question. This is a “do as I say, not as I do” kind of thing. If someone takes the time to leave me a good, sincere comment; it definitely warrants a good, sincere response. Sadly, at least lately, I sometimes lack the time to respond to comments the way I should. But,
    Lastly, I’m confused. Is this by you or by someone named Anne? I just searched for your blog on WordPress, and came across this. Or, maybe you’re a unit? (I’m breaking your rule of sharing a link!) [removed link]

     If readers share sincere sentiments or ask a question I will usually reply, but often I will simply “like” a comment. What is your approach?
    Thanks Kevin! This was helpful for me as a blogger because honestly I hadn’t considered the return value in commenting on other blogs. I’m hoping you would share your thoughts on how important it is to reply to comments on your blog.

    Calling me a son of a gun is certainly the most interesting greeting I’ve received in a while!
    Thanks! I’d love to write more content like this here at Smart Blogger if Jon, Glen, Marsha, and company will have me.
