So who is setting up a blogger blog? Blogger is super easy - it literally only takes a few minutes, and they hold you by the hand for each step. It's very much set up for people with no coding knowledge.

Hi Jilly,

Yup it's me. I finally posted a first "article" last night. It took me awhile. Would you be able to answer a couple/few questions for me?
1. I'm trying to figure out what "gadgets" are.
2. Can I use affiliate links like Bella Online or do they need to be Adsense, can I do both?
3. Can I do lists - like great career books to read?

Thanks Jilly!!!

Any assistance would truly be greatly appreciated!!!
thanks!!!

Dianne - give us the link! Want to seeeeeee.

1. I don't remember what gadgets are but my guess is they are the blogger equivalent of applications (apps) or widgets. Wordpress uses widgets.

Let's say they are like widgets...in which case you can choose what to put in your sidebar, like a weather app, a calendar, your categories, Recent Posts, Top Commentators...etc.

Does this sound like what you are looking at? I can give more guesses if this isn't close.

2. When i had a blogger blog i am pretty sure I used affiliate links and adsense. Stick in an affil link and see if it goes through. Let me know if it doesn't work and I can dig into this more for you.

3. When you say lists, do you mean is there an app/form for lists like on Amazon? Or are you asking if that is appropriate for a blog post? if the latter, YES, it's a great idea for a post. Lots of bloggers make lists. I make lists on my blogs. People love lists! if the former, then see the answer to the Widgets question. I bet there is an app for that. laugh

Blogger has recently added lots of new features. The gadgets are a list to choose from like adding favorite links, adsense, coding, like Amazon ads and other things.

Blogger also had an Amazon tool right in it where you can type in a keyword and products come up to insert right into your post.

I have both blogger and Wordpress.org. Wordpress.com can't be monetized, I don't think.

If you don't care about owning your own domain, I do prefer Blogger - it's super easy and you can have adsense, as BB said.


I second this. I have a wordpress.com blog, and there are a lot of things I can't do that can be done on blogger/blogspot. I've decided to stay there for now, as eventually I would like to go to my own domain, and once I do that, I've heard wordpress.org is the best, and porting from wordpress.com is the easiest transition...

Ok, Well, I go by Di. LOL! As for adsense and blogging and amazon. I've very new to all the add ons and ways to make money etc... I will be reaching out to each of you when I start exploring that. I'll look into it all this weekend and try and familiarize myself with it

I have a book on amazon that is released Sept 18, 2010 but there is still so much about amazon.com that I don't know...

My blog doesn't have blogger in it. I'm on wordpress. It's www.transformation247.wordpress.com

I have my own website also
www.royaltreasurespublishing.com

I'm still learning and all of these website etc.. are pretty new to me. But I'm growing and expanding.

The student is eager to learn...

I prefer blogger if I'm not hosting the site. That being said, It really doesn't get much better than wordpress hosted. Of course, that's not free. Just my opinion!
