Tending to your WordPress blog

There are four things you should do to your blog because if you DON’T, it looks as if you are not smart about blogging. These are quite basic, and the first three can be changed or edited in Settings (see instructions).

First and foremost, change your TIME ZONE to New York (so that the time stamp is correct on your posts):

Second, give your blog an intelligent TAGLINE (instead of “Just another WordPress.com weblog”):

Third, upload a distinctive PHOTO so people can identify your comments (it does not need to be your face):

Fourth, write something on your ABOUT page (see instructions) so it doesn’t say this:

Also, take some time to personalize your blog’s sidebar WIDGETS (see instructions). For example, if your blog theme has a calendar on the side, you can remove it (why do you need that anyway?). You can add your own blogroll, or links to your own Twitter or Facebook pages.
