    Default Giving the Blog thing a go.

    I finally have my Blog sorted to a point where I'm happy to start making it known ... I think.

    I've spent the morning customizing the template I chose (one day I'll probably do a lot more with it) and creating a header (that's it below) that's in line with our web design business as well including one of my own photos.

    So far it's 1 page with 4 posts ... newest at the top (better for search engine (SEO) ) ... and I really don't know how often I'll post to it yet. For now just planning to post about once a week I think?

    As I say on the blog, this is directed more towards learners in digital photography than people who have more experience.

    I'm totally new at this so if you go have a look, feel free to give me your thoughts

    I took a quick look and I have to say I really like it! I like the way that you break down the shot and deal with it in a sytematic and easy to understand way.

    My only difficulty is that I can't figure out how to register in order to leave comments.

    I haven't even looked at that ... guess there are settings I need to set? I'll check it out right away.

    Cool. I've also set it so everyone's first comment has to be approved ... after that you should be able to comment and it will auto approve.
    This helps weed out the spam wanks I've had several over the past week already!

    Did you leave a comment Bambi? There doesn't appear to be any pending.

    In that case you are NOT approved

    I'm sitting here trying to figure out why a comment wasn't showing up
