Lesson # 20 – Follow, Following and Being Followed
In the last lesson I shared what is probably a worst case scenario when it comes to learning some aspect of WP. If you have been following the blogs of others, you would have known one way to alert readers how to follow yours. Also, it may have occurred to you, as it belatedly occurred to me, to type follow in the Support-Search box. That would lead you to most aspects of following the blogs of others and allowing them to follow yours. Had I thought of “follow”, I would have saved a lot of time.
If you don’t already have a tab opened for your blog, do so now and get to the Support-Search-Follow section just mentioned. There you will find a list of links that will help you in all aspects of following, including tie ins to Facebook and Twitter.
And you can learn EVEN MORE about following options if you look to the right of the list of topics under Follow and find Topics–Following. That’s likely too much more for now, but the Email Notifications may interest you, as it explains why you might you want to use two different emails for responses from WordPress.
Once you are clear about how to allow readers to follow your blog – get updates of your new posts – and how to follow the blogs of others, you may want to know how to expand your following. We’ll look at that in the next and final Lesson.
