Some tips on using my blog


VISIT MY BLOG. The most questions I get asked are, How do I see people’s comments? Where are the Pages for Recipes or Properties? This is very easy to find, you need to actually click through to my blog to see this. Many of you who are subscribed will get my blog posts by email, but it is best just to click through to my blog to read the post and comments people leave and it also helps me track page views, cause if you read the post in your email, that will not count as a page visit. I have just over 1300 subscribers at the moment and around 6000-8000 page views a day.

SUBSCRIBE. To subscribe to my blog there is a box on the right hand column, just enter your email address and click the subscribe button, you will then get an email to confirm you have signed up just verify this and you will receive updates to your inbox. I do not use or pass on your email address to anyone, I might send out an email to you all once or twice a year myself, with any offers, or new information sheets etc.

COMMENTS. If you are subscribed you will get the blog post to your email, but please click through to my blog as this helps with page visit numbers and gives me an idea how many people look at my blog each day. Also by clicking through to my site you will see the comments below the post what people have left, and you can also leave your own comments, these can have lots of useful information in them as well, so please leave comments, as I read them all.

CAR HIRE. I always get asked about car hire, I have a search engine for this, and this will give you the best price, keep in mind Madeira is very hilly, so if there are 4 people sharing a car, go for one with at least a 1.3 engine. You can find the Link Here
