As more and more people discover TypePad, we're often asked for a list of best practices for getting a great blog up and running. And while our Knowledge Base has all the information you'd ever need about how to use TypePad, we were lacking a simple "ten step" guide for getting the most out of your TypePad blog. Until now, of course!
Introducing getstarted.typepad.com, our Ten Tips for Getting Started with TypePad. It starts with some simple advice on getting started in private, moves through customizing your design, setting feedback preferences, publicizing your blog, various ways to post to your blog, adding photos, video and audio, and tracking your success over time.
We'd love for everyone who's using TypePad today to take a read through, and let us know what we can improve. Are there things we can add to the guide to make it better? Are there things that you think a new user should know to get the most out of the product? You can comment on the site, of course - so feel free to leave ideas there.
