#crimechat March 22: Tech Talk!

Drawing of hands on a keyboard#crimechat March 22: Tech Talk! I will be collecting questions about the tech side of blogging between 10-1pm EST. All these questions will be answered by my tech man and webmaster par excellence: Jacques Soudan.

If you use Twitter: tweet me your blogging related question and add the hashtag #crimechat. I will collect all those questions and email them to Jacques. The questions and his answers will be posted here on DCC in a separate post. The recap will be the usual short summary with the verbatim thread only.

Topics to discuss with Jacques can range from your motivation to start a blog and to keep it up to self-hosting versus using a platform such as Blogger or WordPress. You can also think about the maintenance you must do related to broken URLs, underused tags and categories, widgets and plugins, how to make a backup, the best SEO plugins, and more.

If you do not use Twitter or cannot be online March 22 between 10-1pm EST: leave your question in the comment box below this post. I will collect those and include them in the email to Jacques with the questions from #crimechat.

Why a tech talk during #crimechat?

I get a lot of questions about blogging that I cannot answer. I also see a lot of questions on Twitter related to building a website, problems with back-ups, worries about traffic/readers, the costs of a blog, Google rankings, placing ads on your blog or not, etc. I thought it might be helpful to let Jacques answer some of those questions since he has been in the business for a while.

So … tune in March 22 between 10-1pm EST on Twitter and use hashtag #crimechat or, leave your questions right now in the comment box below.

Happy blogging, V
