Blogging - the technical ins and outs of how to do it well?

Seeing as I am a complete technical novice in relation to this blogging mallarkey I reckon it's going to take me sometime to get a blog as technically good as some of the good ones I've encountered in my very short blogging life (Twenty Major et al - you guys know who you are!) Simple things like how I get proper titles (as per the template) on my posts have thus far confounded me (answers on a postcard pleeease!!) which is frustrating to say the least.

Still don't know about photos, catagorising etc. and to be fair I need to read the advice on Blogger but know this will take time. Not doing too bad at this stage, I think, to have managed to get a blog up and even to have begun inserting links but am completely lost in relation to connections, plugins, wordpress etc but I will get there.

If anyone has some amazingly simple tips send them my way - always open to learning and cogging!

I'm by no means an expert (far from it in fact), but photo wise, I think Flickr.com is a good means of doing photos in your blog. It has a feature that allows you to host the pic on Flickr and send a post to your Blog directly. All you do is set up an account, enter the various details etc upload your pics, et voila!

I have been messing about with it over the last few days and it seems OK. However i'm sure there are 101 other ways of doing the same thing!

Hi Kev,

Thanks for that, I've just begun messing with Flickr myself. I think it is the way to go judging by some of the more technically brilliant blogs that I have logged onto recently, they all seem to use good old Flickr.

Nice to see someone has at last found my blog!

The more I play with it, the more I like Flickr, I may even stump up for a Pro account if I get really carried away!
