Several weeks ago, I wrote a post, Wooden Leaves and Tenth Blogiversary, about how things have changed in the blogging world, my blogging world specifically, and how I'm trying to grapple with these changes and trying to accept them. I questioned whether it was worthwhile continuing to blog and whether or not blogs are slowly dying.
The response to this post was incredible and overwhelming. The love, empathy and advice came pouring forth from so many of you. And in the Comments, I heard from several other bloggers that they had learned from some of this advice and planned on incorporating these ideas into their own blogs.
Since I have received such a vast amount of information and advice from so many of you, I thought I would share with others the bounty of these thoughts so it was not only I who benefited. Many of these ideas require some technical savvy, so I am still trying to work my way through those. Others are common sense, and you may already know some of this.
Below I have compiled all the helpful tips I received. Have fun and run with whichever of these seems to fit your blogging situation.
