The Blogging Tip Meme ...

I was tagged by Mariuca to do this blogging tips meme. Well, at least that's what I think it's called. I found it to be kinda cool cos you get to write a small little tip about blogging and judging by all the tips I see here (which are all excellent I assure you) I'll be hard pressed to come up with a decent one. But then I've always loved a challenge so let's see if I can figure one out worthy to be even called a tip. I wonder if a 2o cent tip would be sufficient ... LOL! (ok, ok, I get it, I won't give up my day job anytime soon!)

As with all meme's there are some simple rules to be followed, can't have everyone making it up as they go along right? So, here are the rules:

You are to copy the list, add your tip to t he bottom of the list and pass it on. Then put an asterisk to the tip you you like best. Easy isn't it?

And as with all meme's, I'm supposed to tag a few more bloggers to reveal a few tips (well, just one actually) from them. I've been threatened with bodily harm by some bloggers if I ever tag them (yes, that you Nessa and you too MP. LOL!) but then I'm a sucker for punishment. Besides us spacemen type are supposed to be strong brave and all that nonsense ... hehehe ... so, here's the usual suspects :)
