If you run a website or a blog, you probably use at least some images to increase the user’s experience. While images are important for SEO, they can eat up a lot of space and drag your load times down if you are not careful. If you are using Photoshop to edit you pics, you are in luck, because it is really easy to optimize images with Photoshop.
Naturally, there are going to be exceptions to the rules, but there seem to be some very big mistruths floating around about blogging. It boggles the mind to see all the “overnight successful bloggers” out there that are assuring you that if you just follow their plan, you will have overnight success, too. You may be left feeling like you must not have what it takes to make it as a blogger. Well, obviously if everyone else is seeing such overnight success, then you must be doing something wrong….right? No! You have just fallen into the trap of blogging truths and downright lies!
One of the first steps that you should take as a blogger is to create a blog comment policy. The importance of this became apparent to me early on when I saw some of the horrible comments that some bloggers and freelance writers have heaped upon them.
