To clarify, I’m talking about this dog:
…not this one:
AND I’m talking about finally learning what RSS is and how to find mine.
I admit that when I was taking Blogging 101 earlier in this year, I aimed to learn only the basics, what I needed to jumpstart my existing blog and make it more appealing. But a lot of water has flowed under that bridge since then. More than once (okay, LOTS more than once) I was somewhere on some site in cyberspace that wanted my RSS address, so that my blog site could be linked to some other site. I made some attempts to figure out what the heck that was and where mine was, but it always eluded me. It seemed to be a big secret that only REAL computer people were allowed to know.
So fast forward to this morning, when I was updating my Amazon Author Page (amazon.com/author/dawnlajeunesse ) and I discovered that I could link that page to my blog…IF…I entered my blog RSS address. Ugh. In a rare moment of high motivation to create this link, I went hunting.
Turns out, there are lots of articles out there that tell you not only WHAT the RSS is, but how to find the address you need to create the link. I used one by A Weber Communications posted June 21, 2016. It was easy to follow, and I found my RSS address immediately. After months of frustration and lost opportunities.
But now I know. Hear my happy bark – ARF! ARF!
