I've only recently started improving my blog, and have been all over the place, trying to figure out how to make it work. In my surfing travels, I conveniently came across a number of blogs addressing issues that were very relevant to me.
Roland at Writing In the Crosshairs has an entertaining post on how to grow your followers list
So You Want Followers? Will Rogers fans will love this post.
Elana Johnson has an informative post on Leaving Your Mark Behind. (I've been poaching religiously, Elana. You'd be so proud of me!)
Michael Hyatt has an enlightening article on 10 Ways to Create a Better "About Page" for Your Blog. I never thought about my 'about page'!
Are there any other relevant posts amateurs like myself should look into?
