For Bloggers

  • Tips For Book Blogging On Free WordPress (Clo @ Cuppa Clo) Not only does Clo offer good tips for bloggers using the free, she links to a number of other useful posts, including some to help you decide if free or self-hosted WordPress is better for you.
  • Guide: Formatting Posts Using Templates, Classic + Reusable Blocks [on WordPress] is one of those useful links I referred to. (Nine Tale Vixen) The tips in this post apply whether you use free or self-hosted WordPress.
  • A Tutorial on HTML for Book Bloggers is another really useful post I found through Cuppa Clo’s post.(Jei @ A Novel Idea)
  • This blog is on self-hosted WordPress, in part so I can use the Ultimate Book Blogger plugin from NozeGraze. But if self-hosting on another platform isn’t in your budget, or you don’t want the hassle of self-hosting, is a good choice.

Movies & Shows
