real quick....

in a Post, not comment
i have managed to make it through two hurdles with TYPEPAD.
DO now have windthread over there and also managed to
figure out how to add the REPLY function!!!!!!!!
so...working on it and if i actually get somewhere good
with it all, i can be a resource for anyone else who wants
to switch. For SURE i know that if i can fumble my way
through, anybody can.....
will keep us all posted.....

Persistence always pays off. Looks like typepad here you come.

I am sure there will be some way to manipulate/load your photos that you will find very soon.

And how did you move this over? Did you move the whole blog over there?
I am interested in trying it.
thanks for your courage and exploration

Jan..i RARELY get a headache...
well...but i don't cry, i just
get so intensly determined. my
great fear is that i will "break"
something that won't be fixable.
i wish you oh oh so well with your
problem....

nance...nope. not free, but
the basic is $8 something a month.
and for me, being able to actually
follow through on an exchange
would be worth it. also, i am
thinking back to when Arlee switched, remember her talking about why it's a good thing to
pay
something about things more prone
to becoming totally lost on free
servers???
anyway, i think just about every
month, one of the times i'm at the
laundromat, i succumb to getting
a green chili cheese burger combo
at the Lottaburger next door. if
i gave that up it would about do it

kaite...well...i am trying to
write each successful step down
so if i manage it, i might end up
being helpful?
Big thing at the moment is that
photo thing.
we'll see.
Funny how happy we get when someone
says: "well done"
i got all happy with self.

Jacky...you just keep holding that
confidence for me.
reason i am in kind of a hurry
is that the Alzheimer's person i
work with is returning about 3
weeks earlier than originally
planned from her holiday with
family in the NW. things will
pick up steam then....
also, the Boro class begins the
19th...would be nice to have
it settled one way or the other
for that..........

OH NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i just
noticed on Jude's sidebar when
i clicked myself that the TypePad
Windthread is
ALREADY THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN ON WHAAAA!
OH NO!!!!!!!!!
to your question, no, i just
started clicking, signed up for
the free 2 week trial.
there IS something there that i
saw about how to move a complete
blog over from blogspot though.
i think i won't do that. just
pretend this is the beginning?
which, of course, it always is...
oh...don't know.
have to go ask Jude about what to
do about her sidebar........
xoxo...

Grace, do you have a photo program on your computer? I down load my photos regularly into my photo program (in my case iphoto or photoshop elements for ones that I really want to edit, but I think any photo program would do). I export any photos I think I want to use for the blog to a file on my desktop (I create a new one each month so it doesn't get too large). Then when I want to post, I click the button for add photo, and then select the file I stored the photos in and then select the photo I want.

Hope that made sense and that it's helpful. I use the same rational for the cost of Typepad, I gave up once a week coffee and cookie. Just do that once a month now. I'm actually saving money...!
