Gotta Start Somewhere...

Jumping into the pool of blogging, mostly to post Everyday Matters challenges, make comments on art materials I'm trying, and get whatever help I can on sketches and drawings, watercolors and oil paintings I'm attempting to paint. General ramblings and musings about this effort to make art that matters. I've been looking at the blogs linked to Everyday Matters, and there's a dedicated bunch of folks trying diligently to make art a part of their daily lives, taking the creative challenge. I want to play too. Setting up a blog wasn't nearly as hard as I imagined. I think the trick will be (being honest about my lack of techie knowledge) making links, and figuring out how to finesse the blog, once it's up and working.

Hey Nel it worked.

It works fine.

Nel, you might want to change the settings on your blog so that people can post who don't have blogger accounts. I have one, but I rarely use it. Some people won't bother signing up for one just so they can post.

Also, be sure to turn on the verification code thingie so you don't get comment spam.

it works, and now you will be hooked! I started with one blog, now i have three! all for different purposes...If you go to your dashboard and click on your blog, you will see useful tabs, like: template (where you can edit your links...it's not super user-friendly, but don't hesitate to ask for help!) and Settings..where you can set up who can comment on your blog..
maybe you know that already?!
good luck and happy blogging and drawing!

Nel, this is the first time I have visited your blog after seeing your message on the EDM message board. Reading this, your first post, really struck a chord with me - a few chords actually. The same concerns from another none techie. I've just looked through your work and am stunned by the quality. Really beautiful art on your blog. Your EDM challenges are wonderful. I will definatley be returning.
