Hey Bloggers!

This is a follow up to what I had talked about before regarding sharing your posts on social media and making sure that they looked nice when you did that. +Kristi Hines put together a really nice post outlining a few other tricks I didn't mention:

This question comes from +Melissa Quigley and was originally asked on Facebook:

Question about emails. I'm wondering how you limit the amount of context your readers see in the emails so that they have to click through to your blog to read the rest? Does anyone know how to do that? I'm just using the feed burner through google. Thanks!

In FeedBurner, you want to go to manage your feed, then click on 'Optimize' in the top tabs. Then in the sidebar, click on 'Summary Burner' and select the length you want to show (number of characters) then click 'Activate'

Hey Bloggers!

I know many of you feel like you don't know much about Google+ and how to use it effectively, so I wanted to share this video that +Mom It Forward put together!

They are also doing a part two of this, and you can sign up for it here:

Alright, we have our first question coming from +Kristen Duke  the lovely photographer at http://www.kristendukephotography.com/

Her questions is:
Is there a google plus plugin you recommend for our sites? It seems right now most plugins share a small picture.

Now, there is a little trick you can use for social media sites to make sure that the picture that shows up is a great one. Sites like Facebook and Google+ will just pull any image they can find when you post a link to a page, or you can use what is called "Open Graph" tags to tell it specifically which image to use.

So, here is the trick I like to use. Any social plugin that you want to use should be fine. But, I also like to use a plugin similar to:
http://wordpress.org/plugins/open-graph-protocol-in-posts-and-pages/

What that does is for each post, you can specify what you want the title, picture, and description to be when someone shares your content on social media.

I'll do some research and try and find a couple WordPress plugins that make this easy besides just the one up above. I hope that helps!

Feel free to add any follow up questions in the comments below!

Ok, just so I can get an idea of what sort of things we should be talking about here, why don't you go ahead and give me an idea of some of the issues you as bloggers run into on a regular basis. I'll try and focus content around those things.

Just wanted to start this off with some basic SEO information for everyone. Whenever I have someone ask me about learning SEO, I always refer them to this one. It is by far the best guide for someone that is wanting to learn the basics of how SEO works.
