I've been blogging for some time, but there's a lot I don't know. So, I appreciate it when someone explains how some feature or concept works.
The Mudville Gazette offers some pointers on blogging, including using Blogrolling to "ping" when you've updated your blog. Now, I'm sure that many more experienced bloggers know about this, but if I ever read it, I'd forgotten it. Apparently, without using a ping, those Blogrolls don't show the Update Message next to the link.
I can't wait until summer - I'm going to go into learning mode, and get up to speed on all the features of my favorite software and services. I know I'm going to learn how to do all the things I probably should already be doing, but just don't know are easily within reach.
