  • Blog Ideas...Start yours TODAY

    I see members have begun to use the blog system. So I thought I would take some time to outline a few thoughts I had on how to utilize the BLOGS.

    First this your should do is create a catchy BLOG name. It will default to your screen name, but naming it something that revolves around what your blog is about will help other decide if they will visit or keep surfing. The idea is to attract members to visit so think it out before moving forward.

    I have created categories that your blog post can be associated with. This can be done from a drop down menu, when you are creating the blog entry. Users can them view these blogs by category. Not interested in TTM stuff, then skip them and check out a different category. If you have other categories you would like added, don't hesitate to make a request.

    The nice feature of the blogs is that on the lower right column you have a "blog" calender. If you make an entry that date will be clickable. Pretty neat if you just joined and want to back track on someone's blog.

    Also the custom pages are really nice to break down lists, be it for want lists or trade list. It's the best way to go since they will always be in the same place ( I choose to have them up top below my BLOG name). If you are posting your wantlist as the main blog entry it will quickly disappear once you make new entries. So to save yourself from having to post it over and over just make a custom page to store it and link to that page.

    I'm using my blog to chronicle my PSA goudey set, so instead of cluttering the board with new threads, those who wish to read about it can just subscribe to my blog http://www.thebenchtrading.com/blog.php?1-Champs96ws. This is something that all the TTM guys should venture into easy to do and with the calendar you can always go back and look at what you got on what day.

    That's it for now, share your ideas with the group.

      Quick question: I tried creating a blog post, but I couldn't figure out how to include an image in the post, rather than as an attachment. I see that you've figured it out. Can you please advise?

      The link to the image be it on photobucket or in your album here needs to be wrapped with [img] [/img]

      Hi Lou,

      Click on the trade manager tab. Open up the trade you completed. Scroll to the bottom and there is a box where you can mark it received.
