What I learned from my SITS day!
See my previous post (It’s my ) to understand what this relates to: day, Yay!
10. Being a featured blogger makes your email, twitter, and page count go nuts. In a good way.
9. It’s really hard to go back and visit lovely people who come and leave comments on your blog when they only leave their email address and not a blog link.
8. WordPress makes it very difficult to email people a response to their comment, whereas in Blogger, you just have to click “reply.”
7. It would be really helpful for us international bloggers if our lovely hostesses would provide a day and time with a time zone attached. I asked what time the post went live, and was only told “midnight.” I guessed at midnight EST, and I was wrong (my post went up earlier than the SITS post!). I figured that when they said the 6th of January, they meant the one on the other side of the dateline, so thankfully I wasn’t a day ahead of myself!!
6. I should include more Te Reo Maori on my blog. (Great feedback, ladies!)
5. I should include more pictures of New Zealand on my blog. (Again, great feedback, ladies!)
4. I should include more information about what I actually do at Playcentre. (Feedback, again!)
3. It takes a really long time to go back and answer each comment and visit all the lovely visitors. Well worth it though. I don’t know where some of these lovely ladies were hiding but I immediately followed them!!
2. Even though there might be 10,000 bloggers registered at SITS, they don’t all come for a visit. Considering #10 and #3, I think that might be a good thing.
1. If you make a major mistake in your Featured Blogger blog post (no, I’m not gonna tell you where) either all your visitors (minus a favourite bloggy friend who is a frequent visitor) will politely not mention it, or won’t even notice. Thank goodness. (*muah* Jenn!!)
Thank you, one and all, for visiting me on my SITS day!! I enjoyed my day and I am very slowly making my way around to visit each and every one of you. At least, those of you who left me a link to which I could get!
