new to blogging

  1. Not real sure how to start. I am not looking for a million followers, honestly I am not that interesting lol but I am looking to follow others who like me have odd tastes and sense of humor so how does one search for such things? I get "tagging" but when I search tags I get famous bloggers with many fans and posts, how do I find the more obscure?

    The blog I need help with is highlycaffeinatedkat.wordpress.com.

  3. So am I! Looking for a place to vent what I really feel!

  4. Looking for advice on life matters is hard bt nt impossible...what are the rules to life in general?

    Here are your options:
    The Tags search page is in the Reader area of the Dashboard.
    http://wordpress.com/tags/

    The WordPress.com search engine indexes post, pages, and comments content (body text). Unless entered as text in those contents, blog name, post titles, and post/comment author names are not indexed. http://en.support.wordpress.com/wordpresscom-search/

    For Topics (Tags page) searches see http://en.support.wordpress.com/topics/ This is the syntax http://en/wordpress.com/tags/canada
    See here http://wordpress.com/#!/read/topics/

    For Google searches use this format and replace "keyword" with whatever word you wish:
    keyword site:wordpress.com/

    Example search string
    Queen Victoria site:wordpress.com
    results > http://tinyurl.com/csaobsx

    Similar site search is mainly based on user annotations or tags on websites. For a given url, the search engine will find websites that have the closest tag match. Therefore, the accuracy of the search result heavily depends on the accuracy of the tags. We consider the tags on a website to be more accurate when the site is tagged by more users. You can help by tagging websites in our search engine.
