Since starting Ciao Amalfi two months ago, I have had such a pleasant experience meeting and interacting with the expat blogging community here in Italy. Everyone has been lovely and incredibly helpful in so many ways! I have left comments and sent emails full of questions, with topics ranging from tech problems to privacy issues, and I have always received cheerful responses and great advice. I want to say grazie mille to everyone for making me feel so welcome! It has inspired me to start a weekly feature called “Sunday Shout-out” where I can share with you some of the great blogs and websites I have been discovering. On the topic of help and advice, the first Sunday Shout-out goes to the fabulous Sara Rosso of the blog Ms. Adventures in Italy. Check out her new project called When I Have Time, where she offers “Tips, Info and How-To’s to Bridge the Gap between Meek and Geek.”
I have been reading there this week about copyright and Creative Commons and buying a domain, and her “Ask the Geek” section is great. Sara has a real talent for explaining potentially complicated or murky topics in a clear and concise manner. As a new blogger, this type of information is invaluable. A big shout-out to Sara for starting this great new website! Head on over with your technical questions you haven’t known who to ask before!
