Thing 3-A New Blog is Hatched!

I have to admit, I have blogged before and already have an account with Google Blogger. I do not have a professional blog but I really like this medium for journal writing and would like to promote it in the district. I can type faster than I can write and I like the ease of editing that the computer allows. I took way too much time trying to decide on a clever title and editing the photo in my header. I thought that I might try to decipher the Html of the template but it really does "look rather Greek to me"; as Scarlet O'Hara would say "Tomorrow is another day!" But for now, I want to get this blog at least started because I will be out-of-town until the 16th of June.

I have also created an avatar and use it for my Facebook page; however I changed her clothes and background for this blog. I think that avatars are a fun way to express oneself!

We found a fix for the Yahoo Avatars this morning. We think there's something wrong with the html code.
Here are the steps to fix:
1. Go to your avatar on the Yahoo page. Click export like before.
2. Right click on the avatar and choose "save as" or the like.
3. Save the picture to a folder with a name you will remember.
4. Go back to your blog and choose "customize".
5. Click on your avatar gadget (it's an html gadget) and click "remove" when it asks if you are sure, say "yes". You are sure.
6. Click “add gadget” and choose the picture gadget. May sure “from your computer” is selected and click “browse”.
7. Find where you saved your avatar, select it, and click “open”.
8. Click “save”.
9. Click “save” again, just in case.
10. Click view blog. Your avatar should show up.
If you are still having trouble, let me know!

I love the way you use your last name as a personality characteristic!

I'm a school librarian, too, always hoping to share and steal (excuse me, borrow) from others.
