Creating Workflows for Windows Sharepoint Services and MOSS2007 - a Step by Step Tutorial by Serge Luca.
Serge's article is well-written and well-illustrated. It looks like three of twenty articles have been published so far, but clearly his complete article will be an authoritative guide worth bookmarking for future reference.

I'm a frequent user of Zap Reader—the popular, and free, web based speed reading program. There were already plugins for several blogs (WordPress, Blogger, and TypePad), but nothing for SharePoint blogs. I thought it would be nice to add a button to each blog post that allowed readers to quickly load the text into Zap Reader so they could speed read it.
The DIVs for the blog posts don't have unique names.
I couldn't add new FORM tags on the page.
You will find the code for the "Zap Read This" Button for SharePoint Blogs on the Zap Reader Tools page. The code is well documented to explain why I did some things the way I did. To use it, simply copy the code and paste it into a Content Editor web part on both the default.aspx and Lists/Posts/Post.aspx pages of your SharePoint Blog. You may want to customize the placement or look of the button, but this was written to give you just the basic functionality.
Let me know in the comments what you think!

Unfortunately, there isn't a quick and easy way to do this just from within a web browser. Our faithful friend, SharePoint Designer 2007 will give us the tools we need to change this, however.
First, click on one of the categories to go to the page that displays the posts for that category. The page should be at /Lists/Categories/Category.aspx. Now open this page for editing in SharePoint Designer 2007.
Once the page is open, change to code view. Then look for a section of code that looks like the following screenshot:
(Note: this screenshot was taken with Word Wrap enabled.)
You are looking for the section that is highlighted in the above screenshot.
You will see several other RowLimit sections with other numbers in them. You want to make sure you have this one.
Change the number "10" to however many blog posts you want to display on a page.
Once you've made your change, save the page and view it.
If you want to display more posts on the home page of your blog, you can do this same thing by editing default.aspx.
Note: In all code examples below, replace the square brackets around the SCRIPT tags with angle brackets. If I included the angle brackets, the browser tried to execute the code. :o(

The team I work with at SharePoint Solutions is the best in the industry. These folks are hard-working people who care not only about success on a professional level, but also keep perspective on the importance of family and solid values. The SharePoint Solutions team has trained literally thousands of students on the intricacies of SharePoint, helped hundred of organizations implement SharePoint environments, and delivered a wide variety of valuable software add-ons for the SharePoint platform. The owners and members of SharePoint Solutions sincerely care about their customers and colleagues.
My wife Bekkey has been incredibly supportive and tolerant of me over the years. There have been far too many evenings during which I paid only half as much attention to her as I should have, because I was doing some kind of research or work on the computer.
It is because I am lucky enough to work with this great team, and because I have been blessed with such wonderful people in my life that I’ve been presented with the WSS MVP award.
It takes a village, and the village I live in is the best. Thanks everyone!
