Thread: Finally did it!

    Default Finally did it!

    Okay folks,

    I finally did it. I just published the first post of my new blog this
    afternoon.

    The blog is still in it's infancy and still has a lot of development
    to undergo. It is nowhere near as polished as Koko's blog, although I
    hope to get to that point soon.

    And the pictures are nowhere near as good as hers or as some of yours
    are here in rfc. But, it's a start.

    Eventually, I will have an illustration up there in my title, and will
    fill out a few more things and tweak some others.

    And there looks like there is a small section that I need to fix.
    Darn.

    This is just the birth.

    And because she was such an enthusiastic believer in me doing a blog,
    and even was interested in contributing to it as well, I am dedicating
    the blog to Christy. She was "standing" over me as I wrote the first
    post, and as I got the inspiration for it, I truly believe.

    I hope I can make her proud someday.

    Very nice blog, and a loving tribute to Kili. I'm glad you got it "up and
    running" at this time, and I'll keep checking back for more recipes. (Hint:
    I am diabetic and would love to see some low-carb recipes.)

    Oh dear. I am seeing all sorts of things that need to be worked on
    now. Like the size of the text, and the funny lines at the bottom.
    Couldn't see how it would finally turn out when I was working on it,
    as far as the funny lines and how the text size would look.

    Oh well..I will tweak it some more later today. And possibly have
    another post or two, of my New Year's goodies...

    The focus isn't really low carb, Mary, although there will probably be
    occasional things that fit the bill. I am still going to focus on my
    original intent to have it mostly to do with shopping, cooking and
    eating well on a budget.

    However, I did decide to give myself a bit more leeway in that
    regards, so I wouldn't feel guilty posting about "treats" or whatever
    I feel like at the time. Like NY's. I might make one of the crab
    dishes I see posted, and the crab will not be as cheap as I usually
    go.

    Plus, I truly am a nightowl.

    Thanks!

    Makes me wish I knew how to do that HTML stuff. I was trying to get
    the post published, and it kept on coming up with these "errors", of
    which I have absolutely no clue. I kept on trying to edit them..and I
    think it turned out just okay.

    But in general, it is very easy!!!

    I might become a real blogposting fool!!! LOL.

    Now I want all these contraptions...like the tripod thingie that Koko
    has, and this light setup for taking better pictures...and a plain
    backdrop. I have been reading about those on various blogs, and it
    seems to really help with the pictures.

    Christine, getting ready to go get some crab.

    Looks great to me.

    This was a loving tribute to Kili, that was very thoughtful of you. Nice
    pics, too.

    If you compose in Word and paste to Blogger, you get HTML error
    messages. Word embeds a buncha code into the text that carries
    forward when copied and pasted.

    I'm sure you'll pick a lot of that up as you go along.

    Crab sounds good. Wish I had some for the weekend, but I probably won't.
    I'll make do with fresh shrimp.

    Trust me, a blog is always being worked on. It will evolve into what
    you envisioned it to be, but by then your vision would have changed
    and off you go again. ;-)
    There is so much I want to do to mine also.

    By dedicating it to Christy you gave it a soul and life. Good on you.

    I found that if you write it in Notepad and then transfer, that code

    Yay! You might want to change to a larger font size or a more
    contrasty font... it's a little hard to read on that green background.
    But the content is great.

    No, I composed in the blogging software, except for the recipe from
    Kili. Maybe that was it. I will have to be careful, I guess.
