Blog goddesses, tell me the secrets of your world.

I have questions and they need answers. I merrily continue blogging because I can't be bothered with technical details but I am curious about a few things. Such as:

1. I don't really understand that pingy thing although I seem to get a good bit of traffic from it. Anybody?

2. How do the twitter links work with regard to blogging? I don't see any traffic from "Twitter" even though I share my link on my Twitter account. Surely somebody is biting every now and again.

3. What's an RSS feed and how does one relate to me?

4. Is monetizing profitable enough to justify the distractions (from an aesthetic point of view)?

5. How might someone, for example, in Singapore or Iran, stumble upon my blog?

6. Does everyone know this stuff or are we all as clueless as me?

These questions and more...


  1. I'm not technical at all but I've been blogging 4 years now so I'll tell you what I know:

    1. No idea about the pringy thing, sorry!

    2. I'm sure people are visiting you from Twitter; maybe you're not looking in the right place. Keep plugging your blog on there, it works for me!

    3. Briefly (because I don't really know, lol) an RSS feed is your website's identity to use when people subscribe to your blog, apart from that I have no idea!!

    4. People all over the world stumble upon your blog by typing in certain words to Google (or other browser), for example, for your blog they might have typed in Blog secrets (words in your title) or perhaps some of the words you have in your sidebar under the 'Labels' heading. My blog name is Crystal Jigsaw and someone typed in "Jigsaw sex" to find mine! Slightly worrying I suppose, lol.

    6. Unless you're technical or have been bloging a while, I doubt many people will know the ins and out of blogging technicalities.

    Good luck and enjoy the experience.
    By the way, I found you via Hop Along Friday.

  2. Sorry, missed out the monetizing question there! I don't blog to earn money so I have no idea. But a lot of people do sponsored posts and reviews of products and I think it's useful if you want to earn a few $ on the side.

  3. I agree with everything CJ said, however, I picked one sponsor b/c I get paid for everything I sell through my website. Worked out well for me. They are products I use and love so I don't feel like I am just writing a positive post b/c they gave me some products!

    Following from the hop, hope you will stop by and follow alone as well.

  4. I had to give my guys this dinner 3 times before they ate it. But now they love it! Thanks again for stopping by!

  5. Hi! I am visiting from the hop! I am your newest follower and would love it if you would follow me back! My most recent blog post explains how in case my blogger follow button is down! thanks so much!
