For those of you who are looking to start a blog, here are some of the pages that I found.
* Melanie Nelson's How Do I Start a Blog? on www.bloggingbasics101.com
This page has lots of links to other posts on Melanie's Blogging Basics 101 blog and external websites. These were also extremely helpful as beginning briefings to the blogging world. This page links to:
* www.copyscape.com This site serves as a search engine to find any content scraped from your blog. Melanie also permalink-ed to her blog post What to Do When Someone Steals Your Blog Post.
* Google Analytics is a Google product that keeps track of you stats. It's format was a little small and not too Meghan-friendly! However, I think I will still use it though, because I find it so cool to see all the traffic patterns etc.
This post will be added to as I continue to find other helpful resources.
Until then- M
