MyBlogLog and HTML

MyBlogLog certainly is a wealth of information, even if it does look like the entire purpose of most communities is to post a link and then find another community in which to do the same. But there is some interesting information buried amongst the "Click Me!" posts. For example, I discovered The Web Marketing Blog's post for Saturday, which has some good tips for beginning bloggers. I doubt that I would have run across that on my own.

In my meandering around over there, I also came up with geckoandfly with their blogger templates. I may have to check these out, as I'm not overly fond of the background on this one and I don't really know how to change it.

Of course, I could just learn more HTML. These days, it's getting to be an essential skill for anyone publishing on-line. It's easy to get intimidated by all of that jargon and secret-code-like symbols that make browsers display amazing things. But there really is a way to at least learn the basics. I'll post a tutorial or two along the way here, as well.

I also wanted to point out that I have two new articles at Associated Content. I'm trying a few different experiments over there, including my newest article with a very searchable subject - How YouTube Got Don Imus Fired. We'll see how the hits on this one go, as opposed to the other article published last night. If only they'd update page views more often I could post updates here!
