Comments about Blogger tips and Tricks left by appreciative and grateful bloggers

Reason for this post: Answering questions in forums by leaving a link/s to relevant post/s is a controvesial topic. Some don't like it and sometimes they express their displeasure and I have to respond (I normally have the answers ready in my sites, often quite detailed and sometimes step-by-step, plus screenshots where warranted. This is difficult or impossible to do directly in the forum, so I leave link/s to RELEVANT post/s. This post is one of the way I try to respond to criticisms to show that bloggers do benefit from links.

Here are some of the many blessings I get from this blog:
Kay's Blue Racine. There is a link to this blog with the long anchor text "Blogger Tricks....this guy rocks at answering questions, although he's a bit technical for me. But if you have a question this is where you will find the answer! lifesaver! thanks" (It is somewhere down the right sidebar)

From a post: The profile directory of Bloggers: Blogger Tips and Tricks. (I have often been frustrated with the official Blogger help pages, but I have found a lot of useful information from Blogger Tips and Tricks. I hope you will pay it a visit.)

I just want to thank you, Peter,for posting a lot of useful tips for new bloggers like me. I'll be back here a lot more to get help from you. I just want to show my appreciation for what you are doing. I even subscribe to your site, and made a link to your site in one of my posts from my site: Blogging Tips for Newbies Again, Thank you.
The post above described this blog as follows:

Thanks so much! This was great. I've been trying to figure out how to get a pic in my header for a while

I tried to research how to embed video (and just click on an image to play it) and all I could find was a bunch of technically tangled info.

But now you've made it so simple, with just a cut and paste of a few lines of code. I could care less about the 'google video' problem and will just upload all mine now to youtube.

Thanks much!

Your help was more that exactly what I needed and it helped me solve my initial problem.

This post just saved me from a heartache this morning. I opened my blog and was shocked to find out that my side bar with all the beautiful elements it contained has gone to the bottom of my posts. It was terrifying. I thought that my template has gotten corrupted, and six months labour is about to be lost. I remembered your blog because I bookmarked it in my browser. I'm glad this post solved my problem which was caused by an UNCLICKABLE link. Thanks for sharing.

thank you, thank you, thanks you...I tried all the other "how-to's" on putting expandable posts on my blog, and none worked...I always got error messages when trying to save the template changes.

The ads don't bother me one bit. You're doing a great service to bloggers, and there's nothing wrong with making a little profit from your efforts

Congratulations for the wonderful blog you have up there.

Hi Peter! Your blog is excellent and I found very good information. Keep up the good work.

thanks very much for the tip! It helped!

Thanks for help me, congrats..

I have no idea what I would do without your blog. I can cook but have no idea about anything relating to html code or the like. So I used your instructions and was able to create the link. Thank you!!! You are a lifesaver for all my odd questions!

Thanks for all the wonderful advice, Peter! I really appreciate, how much time you spend for us figuring out all the best ways to blog.

You are a star for spending time on this! Thank you so much for helping!

Thank you for posting. I was looking for something like this. It makes things a lot easier and fun.

We just started using blogger and have found your websites so unbelievably helpful!

Wow, Peter. Tons of useful info here, as always.

Hey thanks peter I really do think you have one of the most informative blogs out there please keep up the great work.


  1. Hi Peter, I am sorry to see that some folk have complained about the ads on your very useful site. Personally I have no issues with the ads. After all you provide so much valuable information at absolutely no cost to those who visit. The least you should be able to do is try and generate a little cash for all the time you give so willingly to help others.

  2. Hi,

    Sorry can't address you by name or nickname as I can't get it from **** said, but I greatly appreciate what you said. Just wish other visitors and especially bloggers who had been helped have the same opinion.

    To tell you the truth, the amount of time and effort I put into this is not commensurate with what I earn from the ads, but it helps. But what encourages me is when grateful bloggers link to me with statements like

  4. Hi Sally,

    Nothing suprises me. I have enjoyed the good free services of Yahoo, especially the email and the great Yahoo group, plus the great spam filter, all for free. What did Yahoo get in return. There are Yahoo bashers out there, because Yahoo have to put a few advertisement to continue to run it as a free service. If Yahoo is a paid service, I would probably run away elsewhere. I don't mind those ads., but looks like there are people who just cannot stand it. If it is banner ads or pop-ups, I can understand, but those Google text link ads are relevant stuff. I myself have to be careful because I often see ads that I myself is interested in, but I cannot click on it. Google came up with a great idea as it is not unlikely that through those relevant ads, we sometimes get things that we need.

    My main worry is the Kontera ContentLink. They are relatively new so may have some bugs to iron out, but they have great potentials once they have everything worked out well, especially if they can get relavancy improved.

  6. I don't have a problem with links being left in forums. In fact, when someone makes an insightful comment, I usually look to see if they've left a link to more information. I also try to find out more about other things they've written on that particularly site and elsewhere because it usually helps.
