My name is Lynn, I am a self taught on the personal computer.

I was first exposed to computing in the mid 1970's during my tour of duty with the United States Navy.  The computer was intended to reduce the paper load we experienced- what a laugh!

My goal now is to teach my self blogging as a way to assimulate myself into the technical aspects of the computer and its newer functions.

I am at present trying to figure how to  use RSS and PODCAST to transmit live and delayed video to a web site. 
If there is anyone out there whom would like to mentor me, with blogging and in my new venture of web video, please feel free!

My physical location is Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA home of 320 days of Sunny Sky each Year!!!

De Colores and Happy New Year!!

Welcome to Geekzone... It is an interesting journey finding this information. There are plenty of resources on-line, most of those you can find through Google, but you will learn a lot if you read some of the blogs you like, to find what people do that catches your attention, etc. With time you will develop your own style.

As for RSS, you have to start by "consuming" them. Use RSS readers for a while and you will see their capabilities and you will figure out how to use RSS to reach your audience. The one I am using at the moment is FeedDemon.

RSS is not something you have to create yourself. Most blogging packages offer the option to generate RSS feeds automatically, and you have just to turn it on.

You need to get a "direction", a theme for your blog. You can blog about your day to day, if it's interesting (some people do even if not), but if you are an expert in one topic you can focus on that. Visitors will come with time.
