Wow a great post on blogs. With these 26 points, you know everything that is useful to be a great blogger. I'll keep it in the mind during 2013.

The technical side of blogging can be very demanding, so the plugins really help. In addition to great content and SEO, I think you need an outreach/networking program.

How to clear your Facebook search history

How to clear your Facebook search history


Can you lose your Facebook Page because you didn't follow the rules? Facebook would never shut down a Page because they ran a contest and did something like... oh, I don't know, maybe offer to donate a dollar to charity for every Like their Page gets... right?

I'm constantly seeing people saying they've never heard of a Page being shut down for violating a rule and that Facebook doesn't enforce most of them anyway. Well, here are two examples of some popular Pages that were shut down by Facebook for some seemingly innocent contest rule violations. Think it's okay to do it just because you see the big dogs doing it? Think again.

It's always great practice to also  to go back and review what you've posted and commented on just in case. This is a must-do.

Yes Dawn, and I think it's not only a must-do but also an educational matter.
