comment What is this glowing light effect called and how do I achieve it?
This question is not about photography. Graphic Design may accept this, but please read about what is on-topic at their help centre.

Do you have a link for Scott Kelby's blog (and maybe a specific article)? Please also include a summary of the advice given.

comment How can I clean the smell of cigarette smoke from my camera body?
What you provided may not have been a hyperlink but it is still a link. It provides a method to find out the information, rather than directly providing the information.

Can you please elaborate on how to use the light meter, where it is located, what it looks like etc.

comment How do I convert lens focal length (mm) to x-times optical zoom?
I think you may have interpreted the question incorrectly. The OP is asking about some commonly used notations (namely focal length and times zoom) and not any other optical properties of zooming.

comment How do I transfer completed photos from LR to an external hard drive?
Did you use the export function? If you did, were you using the 'original' setting in file settings?

comment Is an EF 50mm f/1.4 the same as 50mm with an EF-S lens on a Canon 550D?
What is misleading about the answers above? The majority specify that the lenses must be on the same body, which is specified in the question.

comment What are the alternatives to Smoothie, Merlin and Glidecam for point and shoot cameras?
Do you have an association with this company? If so, this needs to be declared.

comment Why do different smartphones with the same megapixel camera resolutions have different quality of image?
Your last statement: "Nothing with a lens/sensor combination that small is going to produce anything decent anyway" is, in my opinion, completely false. Example: the more modern iPhones (and I tend to avoid Apple products) can produce some excellent pictures in some less than optimal situations.

comment What are the advantages and disadvantage of licensing photographs exclusively?
What is your aim? Do you want to eventually turn pro? Are you looking to make as much money as possible?

comment What kind of lenses will work with my new Nikon DSLR?
This doesn't really tell us anything. Can you please interpret this data for us. Also, there are many more lenses that are available that can work with a D3200.

Can you elaborate on the process for making the photos more as the OP expected.

comment Why is it called “macrofocus” and not “microfocus”?
Remember that we also use the term Megaphone to refer to a device for amplifying sound

comment What are the disadvantages of super-zoom cameras compared to binoculars?
This answer is based on the premise that 50mm is what the eye sees, which is only a convenient number, also based on many assumptions. The eye is far more complex than any camera, and so we cannot relate a focal length to 'what the eye sees' and how the images are displayed affects the magnification of the image and so it is not possible to assign a zoom factor to the images. For binoculars, however, it is possible, since the eye is viewing the image projected by its lenses directly.

comment Suggestion needed for buying a DSLR
Try having a look at the questions tagged beginner and see if there are any answers that help you. If not, ask another question, specifying exactly what type(s) of photography you would like to do, your budget and maybe some examples of what you like.

comment What exactly is “base ISO” and how do I find what is base ISO on my camera?
It is entirely possible. There have, in fact, been some posts that are longer than your entire blog post. However, we are not asking for a full explanation, just a basic summary of the important points. And the question only asks about base ISO, so you only need a paragraph, which I could almost fit in a comment.

Please do not simply answer with a link. Please summarise the content of the linked page in your answer.
