Part of being a newbie is having a TON of questions (and, honestly, oldies have a lot of the same questions). I've answered a bunch of these questions last year through my Tips & Tricks series and I've compiled most of them here for you to browse through.
And, because January is all about signing up for challenges, I'm turning this into a mini challenge!
Don't worry, there aren't any big rules or requirements (I'm all about fudging challenge rules anyway). There aren't any levels or prizes. It's all very low key.
All you have to do is:
- Pick one thing (or more!) from the list below and DO IT
- Come back to this post and leave a comment telling us what you did
- Leave a link to your post/blog so we can all check out your results and give you lots and lots of praise!
