Hey, All You Blogger
Ready for some tips on how to
create a better blog?
Don't jump ship just because no one has commented on your
blog. People are really busy and even if your blog has been read a
hundred times, you may not have one comment. Did you hear
that everyone? When you've read a blog, the only way
someone gets feedback and knows you have been there is when you
leave a kindly note. It REALLY makes a big
difference. Also, since we have a huge public
image and the potential to teach about our craft and science,
please lets put our best foot forward. We would like all members to
spend all that free time you have reworking your blogs to
I applaud and encourage everyone to post as many blogs all
over the internet in as many venues as possible. I also recognize
that you want to publicize your writings and bring people to those
sites who might be interested in reading, learning and
sharing. We can do this and also give-back to HWC. How might
we do this in a reciprocal manner? Easy.
- Create your Forum discussion or blog on HWC and be
generous with gifting substantial
- Write a nice summary of the work.
- Repost a previously written article on HWC if you are the
author and provide the link to the location of your original
- Write up a list of provocative questions as a follow-up
to the article so we can have a discussion on
- Add additional or supportive information to the HWC
article to add variety.
- Create and add a video or slide show with a personal
perspective on the issue and add that to the written
- Create a list of links to other similar topics on HWC and
credit the HWC members who will be so appreciative that you
- If you can think of other ways to spruce up your HWC
forum discussions and blogs, please let us know.
About Event Postings
If you have an event planned that others might want
to attend, please post on HWC by clicking EVENTS TAB. If this is
a for-profit event, like a homeopathy course, then this requires an
advertising fee to help support this network. Events that are just
1-3 days for congresses and special events etc are free to post.
Free events lasting 1-3 days are also free to post. Remember, we
cannot post on-going events that last for months because it kicks
all other events off the calendar.
What are Leaderboards?
Have you clicked the new tab called Leaderboards that show top ranked members and
superb content on HWC.
- Popular discussions rate high marks on
- For those with a competitive spirit, "hint-hint" you can
check your rank and establish a reputation in one or more areas on
- The true benefit of visualizing who visits and
participates often happens when we strengthen friendships and keep
the conversations going.
Ning calculates the Top Members via an algorithm that
combines both quantity and quality. Ask yourself, “How much do I
contribute and how valuable are my contributions?”
Leaderboards are distributed across multiple features —
photos, videos, blog posts, and events. By
default, members and content get ranked based on the previous
week's activity. Get in the spirit and congratulate those who have
risen to the top and start mashing that keyboard if you want your
name in the 'Leaders' position. It's anyone's game.
SWEET. You have
the ability to adjust your settings.
The very first thing every HWC member should do is fill
out the updated profile questions by adding your phone number
(which is hidden) in case we want to contact you. You may insert a
skype listing. Please enter your town, city, state, and country
with a comma and space after each. This will make it possible to
learn our demographic distribution.
Wouldn't it be nice to receive a call from another
HWC member asking how you are doing and if you had any questions or
concerns about HWC membership? Since we live in one big community,
we would like everyone to be active, visit once a month or so,
check out the forums, photos, videos and events, If you are not
receiving the newsletter or messages, we would like to help fix
Volunteers would call other members just to say, "hello"
and check out that everyone is feeling fine, notify about something
special or give a holiday greeting.
Section: If you would like to follow a particular
discussion on the network and get an email when people post a
comment, try to click the RSS Feed Button or the ENVELOPE. We're
continually adding new tutorials to make it easy to navigate the

Typing Titles in Blogs &
Help maintain standardization of titles to
streamline the appearance of the website. Please do not use ALL
CAPITAL LETTERS. Did you know that graphic designers have
determined that capitals are hard to read? So, people can actually
recognize the words more easily when you use the Title Case, which
is the first letter of each word capitalized and the rest of each
word in lower case.

editor with more bells and whistles. Please continue to use the

formatting simple. Click the 'bullet' to make a list.
