Help me out here everyone...I have a list of things I would like to know, but I am sure there are lots of things that I don't even know that I need to know! At the risk of sounding really stupid, here are a few at the top of my list.
Trackbacks. I know it is a link from one blog to another, but how do I do it? Do I click on the trackback link for the blog I am posting on or one that I am quoting from? I think it is the latter, but I have no clue how they work! Do I copy and paste it or is it automatic?
RSS feeds. I use Google reader for my feeds, and to add a blog feed, I go to Google reader and type in the URL of the blog. What happens if I click on the RSS feed logo on the blog I want to subscribe to? Does it come into Google reader, my email or somewhere else?
How do I know who or how many are subscribed to my blog?(not AR, but my other blog) I have heard that feedburner will tell you, but what do I have to do to get it to do that?
What happens if I click on all the little logos at the bottom of the blog posts? What does it mean to "Digg" someone? I know it is a way of saying that you like that post, but again, why should I care?
Technorati has "authority ratings" for blogs and mine is up to a 9 (from a big 0 not long ago) but what is good and what is not? How do they determine the ranking? And why should I care?
Sometimes I feel like I am taking a trigonometry class but I haven't had algebra yet. It seems like I know the basic arithmetic, and I am gradually figuring out the newer terms, but I missed out on the important knowledge in the middle that would make the things I am learning now more understandable.
I felt this way when I switched schools and the school I came from had not yet taught us the metric system. The new one I went to had already learned it and assumed I knew it. Metric measurements are a failing of mine still.
What other questions should I be asking? What would you like to know?
