This is my reblog selection of this SNOWY Winter day! I have kept a trail over the years of all the blogging tips and tools I have used. That way, when someone asks how to do this or that, I can easily route the Budding Blogger to my website. This has great screenshots and looks easy to follow. I'm forwarding it to Evernote, too, so it is on my Projects list!
