• Note to self: always a good idea to proofread for typos and misspellings.

  • Hey! What’s wrong with a gazillion exclamation points?!?!?!?!?! 🙂

    I love these tips and something to remember while I’m on the hunt for a decent WordPress Theme that allows me to implement all that stuff without having to know a buck of code.

    PS…love the graphic.

    • LOL! Thanks for the giggles, Ken. We all need more of those – especially when we’re on the hunt for a new blog theme. 🙂 If you’re anything like me, be prepared to spend weeks trying to find one you like!

  • Moxie- What a great word.

    And what a great way to explain what it takes to really make a blog and blog writer shine.

    • You said it, Sheila! And your blog’s got moxie galore! 🙂

  • Hi Melanie,

    I love this post! You certainly have a lot of moxie and it shows well through your blog. I’m glad to say that my blog also shows moxie according to your points above. Yeah! Never thought of it that way before.

    Unfortunately, making the rounds to lots of blogs on a regular basis, I’ve seen a lot of them that lack moxie. Hopefully they’ll read your post and decide to do a mini (or major) makeover.

    Best Wishes. 😉

    • You shine, Deb!

      Your blog is OOZING with moxie. 🙂

      But I hear ya. I’ve landed on some blogs recently (which prompted me to write this article) where I can’t even figure out who the heck the author is. Sheesh. And it sounds like you’ve landed there, too. Hoping you’ll pass this post around …

      … and Thanks!

  • Great tips in a friendly list. Perfect. I like the fact that your tips seem achieveable for anyone. Moxie? Give me more. 🙂

    • Want more moxie, Mary Ellen?! Have some fun and go grab as much as your heart desires. 🙂

      Thanks for visiting today and stop by any old time.

  • Thanks for sharing that post. I am going to look at my blog and see what I can improve on. I know my needs improving and this post was just what I need

    • That’s the spirit, Nicola!

      I like a gal with an open mind and a willingness to grab her toolbox and do some remodeling. 🙂

      Now get busy and grab your fair share of moxie!
