Which is why I created this feature! Newbie bloggers, like myself, can learn with me. And experienced bloggers can laugh at all my mistakes!
This will just be a catch up post. (I will have several of these to do).
3 things I have learned
1. It takes a lot of time to get a good review out of your head and into a post. My first attempts are not exemplary. (See my first review here.) I *think* I am better now. (See latest review post here) In a later post I will go over each of these reviews more thoroughly. Which means I'll say how, um, jumbled my first attempts. and what I did to start making better put together reviews.
2. Well, for the first month I was obsesseed with getting GFC followers and learning from other blogger's posts, and then (BAM) I learned google reader was going down. Just picture me freaking out at the computer. Then I found Bloglovin *phew*. I think it is almost better than google reader. The layout is super cool. And you can import all your google reader subscriptions. (Take that, google!)
3. Making you blog pretty and navigatable (Not a word, I know) is PRETTY DARN HARD! I will absolutely make a post on all the tweaks I had to do. (When I said I wanted to blog, no one mentioned HTML, by the way!) And I had to learn all the blogger terms.
Sorry this post is all over the place. (Kinda like my first book reviews). All the other posts will just keep to one subject (hopefully) after this!
And once I am all caught up, I'll just make one post a week about the past seven day's misadventures!

How were your first reviews? How did you deal with blog layout or GFC going down?
