We Want Your Weblog Tool Reviews and How-Tos!

SchmutzieHello! I took a short semi-vacation over this last week in order to concentrate more fully on certain projects, and I missed this place entirely too much. In fact, I had my fingers hovering over the keys here on Wednesday of last week, ready to dive in for a couple of hours, but I conjured up some self-discipline and stepped away from the laptop.

But now I'm back! And I have opportunity to offer you!

Aside from articles here at the Canadian Weblog Awards about site-specific business, interviews with nominees, and upcoming pieces about how to build a better weblog, I want you to share your knowledge about the blogging tools you use to create your weblogs.

Do you use Blogger, WordPress, Squarespace, or self-host your weblog? Where do you host your images? What photography tips do you have for the images you use in your weblog entries? What do you use to help you with the design elements of your weblog? What features do you like and which could use some changes? How do you use said tools in the service of your blogging?

Send all reviews and how-tos as an e-mail attachment to schmutzie [at] gmail [dot] com. All articles are subject to review and minimal grammatical/visual editing. If you are unsure of your idea or have any other questions, feel free to shoot me an e-mail so we can put our heads together.

These are our tools of the trade, so let's help each other get the most out of them. If you would like to write a 250 to 15000-word article about a weblog-related tool at the Canadian Weblog Awards, we would welcome your review and/or how-to. Have at it!


PS. The Canadian Weblog Awards has a new button!
