Blogger Meetup #4

The We Love Saipan Network will host their fourth blogger meetup tomorrow night at 7 PM. The meeting place is Java Joes. The password is "fidelio."

We had a list of goals when we started the We Love Saipan Network, one of them was to rise in the rankings of a google search for the word, "Saipan." We Love Saipan and The Saipan Blog have been popping on and off the front page for about a month now. We're 20% of the way there.

Our first three meetings were very informal. We just sat around emailing each other while avoiding eye contact. This week we are going to have a project. We're going to add meta data to every blogger's blog! This will give your blog more "google juice." If we have time, we'll also sign every blogger up for Digg. We might even have a discussion about ALT tags.

Exciting, I know!

As always, the blogger meetup is open to anyone interested in writing, blogging, drinking coffee, or incessantly making fun of me. We meet on the last Wednesday of every month, so mark your calendars for the rest of the year.

Okay. Let me be the first to show my ignorance. What are "meta data," "Digg," and "ALT tags"?

What I want to learn how to do is add the Creative Commons license to my blog. (You can see an example at http://podbookreview.blogspot.com on the right about half-way down, where it says "POD Critic is a licensed work" and gives a link to the CC license). I've tried on my own, without success.

This may not be an NMI blogger goal, and wouldn't help get We Love Saipan on page 1 search responses, (so it's off-topic?) but it's what this one blogger wants to learn!

thanks.
