I love blogs as a marketing tool. And they're free! No, I don't have much to say, pretty much gave up on writing anything of value. I now use my blogs mostly to show my art/photography to whomever stumbles onto it but just as important, to feed the search engines. I know I have alot more blogs than this but not sure what their url is anymore. lol -W
Thank you, Angela! That is an RSS Feed. If you use a feed reader, you can copy the url in the address bar and add it to your feed reader. I use a feed reader on my Yahoo email account and they are a great way to subscribe to a blog without having to clutter up your email inbox.

My latest blog post:
Establishing a presence on the Web
...A website is one of the main ways to establish a presence on the web, regardless if it's your own site, or a second or third party web site. In fact, if you even publish a paper in pdf or word format that goes on the web, your name will be out there. Take that one step further, comments you make on a news story for example, online - your name will be picked up and be out there in cyber space for someone to find.
Francis, what I have done is even though I have followers on Wordpress, I also have an email list and Twitter and FB followers. The think to do is use the FAA email list tool and refer those email blasts to your FAA blog. That is unless someone else reading this has more experience with the FAA tools???? I'll be working on this over the next couple weeks.
My blog is called "The Figure In Light". I started it a few years ago as part of the painting-a-day movement, but now I am using it to post my larger figurative work. I'm questioning whether I still need it, as I post more often now on my Facebook page. Any thoughts on blogs vs. Facebook pages?
I used to have the right-click disabled function, but now for some reason it doesn't work anymore and my photos are clickable. :(
I have looked online to find a way around this, and have followed the directions, but I am not able to disable the right click anymore. Can someone else on Blogspot/Blogger help me with this?
Not sure about the blog platform you are on, but Wordpress uses a plug in for right-click disable. Though, they also discourage it's use and are in favor of Creative Commons use. My Wordpress theme is only one of a hand full that has the right-click disable built in. Otherwise, I know Crevado.com has it build in, as well as Flickr. Hope this helps?
