    So im new, thats why im at this forum. Im the ass everyone can’t stand because i ask questions, but hasnt everyone been at this stage before? But i feel i have somethign to give to the blogging world and was wondering if anyone can take me under their wing for a little bit until i get myself situated with all this blogging stuff. Things from rss feeds and bookmarking and getting myself out there, i really dont know how to do. Im not one of those computer illiterate people who doesnt know how shit works, i just dont know how the advanced part of blogging works. So if there is anyone willing to lend a helping hand for the good of the blogging world, please let me know. My site is theopinion.wordpress.com

    Ok, so i’ve been searching through your resources, and i cant find a way to make an rss feed for my site. Also, I cant find a way to advertise my blog. You seem well established timethief, think you can lead me in the right direction?

    There’s a link in the sticky FAQ to an article about promotong your blog.

    And you already have an RSS feed to your blog:

    If you add in teh Meta widget, you’ll see the link.

    Hope this helps,

    The link labeled ‘Entries RSS’ is your RSS feed. Your visitors subscribe with that link.
