Blogging Tips: What's on your Google Profile?

When you Follow another blog, a majority of people use their Google profiles to do so. I was looking through my followers the other day and I noticed with a lot of them I have no idea who they are... I would click the little icon and be taken to a Google profile page with just a name and a picture, nothing more. Most of the blogs I visit, maybe I know your first name, but rarely do I know your last name. So with just a name I have no way of knowing what blog they have to follow them back, or to know who they are.

Can your blog be found from your Google Profile?

Check out my Google Profile and see what mine looks like. Here is a blogging tip from me:
Make sure you check out your own Google Profile and assuming you want others to find your blog, update it if needed! Add links to your blog, etc. so others can find you!
How to: If your already signed in to Google/Blogger,
when you click the link to my profile in the top right corner (see screen shot above) there is a link that says "My Profile" to view your own profile, then edit it.
To change what shows under the "Buzz" tab on your profile (I just figured this out, it took a bit of searching) click "My Account" in the top right corner - then under Personal Settings next to Dashboard click the link "View data stored with this account"
Scroll down, under the word Buzz click "connected sits" (opens a pop-up window)
Any blogs attached to your profile will be available to link to Buzz along with the option to enter your twitter username as well. Any questions, feel free to ask!

  2. I have written a similar post about the account links. I agree, sometimes it is very difficult to find the follower. I enjoyed reading a different outlook about the google buzz.
