Bear with me….

30 Sep

We actually had a comment posted down below and I had it set up to approve each post prior to posting….I turned THAT off, so now everone’s comment should post straight away. Now I’m trying to figure out how to show postings right under the comment, instead of clicking to see the posts….this stuff is hard for techno phobs like me!

Just a reminder

You can follow the blog by clicking on “follow” at the top of the screen and WordPress will alert you when there is a new post. I think.

By the way, yesterday we had 49 visits to the blog and so far today, 26! I think that is pretty good. Now if someone would just comment on something…..
