    Sandi, are you still swimming around in the murky depths or have you come up for are yet? Good Luck Missus.

      (GASP!) Still swimming around in the muky depths…this is going to take quite a while to get it all how I want it, it’s gonna keep changing!!

        I know just what you mean. I make little changes each day as I learn more. It is tricky finding each other as some change their names, so I put up a blog to gather us together again and folk have been putting their new site addresses on it and reunite.

    helloooo, well done! Now all we need to do is learn how to use the bloomin’ thing! If you suss out how to add friends/followers let me know xxx

      Can I ask that all of you keep your eyes on my how -to blog where I’ll get round to all of this. Use the subscribe button up there on the WordPress Navibar to subscribe to a friends blog home page. If you create a new blog either on here or on Blogger, write down your new URL Address and favourite (in your browser) the Dashboard as well, so that you can go straight to it if need be. (all tips from an absent minded Gran who has to remember tons of usernames, passwords etc. )

    Don’t forget, when you find a friend click on the ‘subscribe’ at the top of the page to add them to you. And/or use the notify buttons at the bottom of the comments box for updates or follow up via email.
    You done did well seeing as all your blogs are transfered and you are getting there with the widgets and menus. I am tackling ‘pages’ now.

      I will be tackling pages as soon as I get the Dashboard stuff out of the way in the next few posts. Can’t cover that just in one as the Dashboard is so full of stuff on here.
      Mind you curiosity, Its one of the best there is in my opinion. Stats, comments, latest posts, everything but the kitchen sink is available from your Dashboard, but that does make it complicated to get to grips with for newbies.

    I found WordPress videos this morning, they explain how to manage your stuff. I just wrote a blog saying how to find them.

      So does this mean you won’t need my how-to’s anymore? I will have to take a look at your blog, didn’t know there were any videos!

    Sandi, unfortunately your username cannot be changed once it has been initiated but the annoying ‘Comments For Moderation’ is simplistic in itself, once a comment has been approved from someone, then all the further comments from that user are automatically added so how wicked is that? Have a great day now and I hope this snippet of info helped you out? Androgoth

    Hi Sandi, just picked this up from plive spaces ticker tape thingy, I’ll say welcome and I’m sure you’ll e OK with Anne and Technogran’s help I’ll pop back again to see how you’re getting on, I think I’ll be staying with Blogspot/Good luck

      Arlene whereabouts are you on Blogger? That is my problem really half of my Spaces friends came here and half have gone over to Blogger! I’m split in two! LOL

      • October 5, 2010 11:00 pm

        Ha! Good question, Arlene! I registered for a Blogger space, did a couple of things to it…now I have no idea where it is or how to get back to it. Doh!!

  10. October 5, 2010 11:15 pm

    Hi Sandi you can catch me on blogger if you should type it —-it’s TALE not TAIL but cliking on it should get you there, do it quietly as I’m off to bed in a mo.

    Between checking my updates through email and reading them on here I think some are getting a bit mixed up or are a bit out of synch. or is it because it’s past my bedtime?

    Hey, look at you! I just opened Google Reader to do my daily blog surfing and there’s 6 posts from the Madwoman!

    • October 7, 2010 6:57 am

      Wow Rocket Man! She must be getting the ropes! I will be tackling making a page today in the new Live Writer no less! So do take a look at http:;// won’t you? It’s easier to do a page in the new writer (especially if you already use it.) Then we’ll be adding our newly published page to a Menu tabs at the top of our blog so that your readers can access it. We’ll also be adding other tabs to our Menu and you can add URL’s so that your visitors can zoom off to any other blogs you have such as a photo blog or even your blogger blog if you want! Or you could make a list for them to go to containing all of your ex spacers friends blogs. Lot’s of choices there for you all!
