The Awesome, Helpful, Knowledgable eHow Community

After I published the first post on this blog last Wednesday I sent messages to my 300 or so eHow friends announcing the birth of yet another eHow blog, this blog. I've come across many blogs about eHow and I appreciate the perspectives of different writers and try to absorb some valuable tid-bits of knowledge from each and every one I read.  Since there are quite a few eHow blogs already, I really didn't expect the enthusiasm I received from my announcement and request for support on this blog. Within a few minutes of hitting the send button I had my first response from Edieness, then as the day went on I received 10 more comments and follows from other eHow friends.  On Thursday and Friday, several more arrived.  Anthony Zerrer was kind enough to link my blog to his eHow Field Guide which, by the way, is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the inner workings of eHow and how to make the most out of the site.

As I acquire new eHow friends I'll be introducing them to this blog and asking them to be a part of it too. By offering them a link to their profile in exchange for comments and follows I'm optimistic that the positive responses will continue. Had I not offered anything in return when I made my request for comments on this blog.....I bet I would have gotten a good amount of sincere and enthusiastic responses anyway by those eager to help out a fellow ehow pal. Most people I've met on eHow are very supportive of each other and are happy to answer newbies questions or reciprocate with comments and recommendations. The success of both the site and the individual writers, hinge on the team effort we all put forth in promoting our articles and strengthening the community. Thanks to everyone who so kindly responded to my request and contributed to the kick-off of this blog! Looking forward to meeting here again and of course at   


  1. Thanks so much. I just joined eHow last week & have been crankin' out articles, reciprocating reads, being bombarded by info about alternative sites, etc, etc so a little overwhelmed... but ALL GOOD! I'm really appreciate the eHow community (generous & enthusiastic as you describe), with people like yourself. The information you're providing is well-written and of value, and it is what I'm looking for. Looking forward to integrating it! It just might take me a little while.

  2. Thanks for the mention. I added amazon affilates to my blog as another way to make money on my blog. It's free to do and easy enough... just a thought for you. Blog looks pretty good. Keep it up.

  3. Hi Kathy,
    I'm sad I was left off the list...I'm sure it was just overlooked. I'm NewMama on ehow. I made a previous comment with lots of information about my ehow status, don't know if it posted properly or what!

    I am soooo are on the list now! Thanks for pointing out my oversight. My laptop was treating me badly the day I was trying to add a bunch of people and I guess you became a victim of my technical difficulties. It seems to be overheating and just shuts off at random times, usually when I'm trying to do something really add eHOw profiles to my blog. :(
    Please forgive me and thanks again for letting me know.

  5. Love your new blog, and I hope you'll give me a mention on it. I've been on ehow for two years this month, and have put out about 160+ articles. Thanks!
