How To Update Your Blog (How do I upgrade my blog)

March 7, 2010 Leave a comment


Unlike most of my other “How To” Videos, this one is not targeted for the beginner.  We’ll categorize this one as Intermediate/Beginner.  If you know what an FTP client is, and if you know how to gain FTP access to the web server that your blog sits on, then you won’t have any problem.

If all this makes you nervous, you might try a WordPress Automatic Upgrade Solution.

If you have a Blog – don’t sweat a thing, upgrades are taken care of for you.

The reality is, many folks have someone else set up and install their Blog.  But what happens when an update is necessary?  Watch this video on How To Update Your Blog.  If you have any questions, let me know and I’ll help you out.

But I did manage to catch most of his talk about how to kick butt on Twitter. And I was tweeting here and there. Soon, several of you following me on Twitter asked me to summarize some of his key points.

So here goes – 10 points that I picked out from the dozens Guy Kawasaki made in his talk:

The Tweetmeme button is the most powerful button the Internet today, if you run a blog or content site. It instantly shows that others have found value in an article or post. People see the number of tweets and think, “It must be good.” Second, the button makes it easy for people to retweet your article.
