Whew! Finally...

Well, it took me a while, an amount of time that I'm sure is way longer than most, to get this blog up and running. BUT, I am now all set and ready to go! I really appreciate everyone's help and guidance as I beat my head against my keyboard in frustration!

Please update your records to reflect this as my new working blog. The previous website will be dismantled soon.

I will no longer be using the email address: lroe@onlinepublicist.net, and will now only work from onlinepublicist@gmail.com.

I will use this site as a way of communicating, in a more efficient way, with bloggers and online writers. I will post links to reviews for my projects, thoughts I may have, and follow-ups I am conducting. It will be going through several changes over the next couple of weeks as I muddle through all these new gadgets. :-)

I am so looking forward to utilizing this new outlet with all of you! Please feel free to comment with thoughts, questions, or suggestions of any kind!

Lisa,
I have heard that WordPress does not allow Java so you may miss out on some scripts for the sidebar. Things like Affiliation links.

Happy to be a part of your community! Biblio is right about wordpress; there are other domains that are hosted by a variety of web servers that allow for more freedom with the sidebar. I use a classic template with blogspot so I write my own code, but the new blogger is also really good. I will see if I can suggest domains for you as I am thinking of getting my own or at least getting a page for my husband's artwork.

Welcome to Blogger Lisa!

Congrats on the new blog Lisa! It looks great. I like the current projects widget in your sidebar.

You did great Lisa! If you add the "followers" widget on your sidebar you will be able to see who follows your blog :)

Looking Good! Don't worry, it gets easier and you'll become addicted to coding it yourself soon enough.

P.S. I still love Blogger best. Wordpress is overly complicated and harder to mnipulate the code. I buy my domain from Google. It's a few bucks more per year, but I like all my stuff to be in one neat place (blog, domain, email, etc...) and Google's not going anywhere :-)

Hi Lisa!!

It looks great. Congrats on getting up and running. It can take forever can't it? I so feel your pain on that! I am still trying to get my switch all the way up and running. Keep up the great work and keep in touch :)

Hey Lisa! Congratulations on the blog and welcome to the world of blogging! All the pain and sufferings of moving to this blog is worth it. I love the look!

You're on my RSS reader so I am definitely updated on your updates. Bring them on!

I was going to say: welcome to the blogging world, Lisa, but that sounds a bit funny because you have been around the blogging world for a while. So I guess I will wish you welcome to the club of bloggers!

Of course I added you to my feedreader.
