I'm relatively new to blogging...since January. I'm hoping to learn about having a signature- I'm assuming that means more than just signing my name- ha ha.
Also, what is a backlink? Why is this such a big deal? And how do I hook myself up with one for my blog on blogger?
A backlink is when someone puts a link to your blog on their blog or website (it links back to you - backlink). If you are getting some good comments from another blogger, why not email them and offer a 'you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours' and you both can put each others' blog button w/ link on each other's blogs.
You can also do guest posting, which will usually give you credit for authoring the article in the form of a link back to your website.
