  1. Nick, NIce blog. As a long time blogger with close to 20K followers, you’re going to want:

    1. Provide links to the blog you list on the right, so your readers can click through.
    2. In the blogging business you’re going to want to use the “creative commons” copyright and allow your readers to freely copy and reuse your materials with – or possibly without – attribution. Otherwise you’re setting yourself up in the position of legal enforcer” rather than “thought leader” with important things to say.


    • Thanks Glen. Still learning how to set the page up. I used the copyright notice that came from WordPress but I assume this is not the one. I’ll check out your site–do you have it up there?


      • Yep works good. See you in San Antonio?

    • I just included the CC badge on the page in lieu of the standard cc notice by WordPress. When I go to my site externally I get links for the blogs listed on the right. Can you not click on them? If not, there must be a setting that I’m missing.


  2. Good luck with your blog, Nick. I see that we have similar tastes in music, as well as our professional thoughts. One suggestion: provide an RSS feed icon so that folks can subscribe using their favorite reader. If you’re not using the Jetpack plugin for WordPress, I recommend you check it out. It will let you add a lot of features to your site, for free.


    • Thank you for the practical advice. I will check out the plugin. I’m still a neophyte using WordPress so suggestions and critiques are always welcome.
