The following are tips, tricks, and general helpful links around the WordPress neighborhood that I picked up in The Blogging 101 Commons. These helped me, maybe they’ll help you too. I couldn’t catch everything, so add your own links or helpful tips in the comments section and I’ll update the page regularly.
If you have the chance to sign up for Blogging 101 or ‘Blogging Bootcamp’ don’t hesitate. You’ll meet some awesome bloggers all looking to improve and help one another. Plus access to the WordPress crew is priceless, especially when the assignments start coming fast and furious.
