First Post








Hi everybody! I thought I would put up my first post. I'm also trying to figure out how all of this works. I'm planning on doing an update/response to the Happy Birthday post. I have been having a lot of fun reading the blog and laughing at all the funny stuff! Tomorrow I'm going to be singing the National anthem with my group at the Minnesota Twins baseball game. It should be a lot of fun, we did this last year too. I'm going to see if I can add a video.

Can anyone explain how to write something, add a picture, and write something else? Every time I add a picture it goes to the top. Thanks!

Nice profile pic!
First off, pictures are a pain in the butt. I have just adjusted to it and now add all the pics I need on the post and then fill in the words in between. You are doing it right, it just seems like you are doing it wrong because it sucks.
Have you figured out how to move the pics into the order you want them?
That procedure also sucks.

Chef said...

No, I haven't got that far yet. Sorry to hear it sucks! Could you let me know how to do it?

You click a picture and drag it at least to where the next picture starts and it will place it one picture down. It's nearly impossible to drag a picture up, so you have to drag pictures down until the one you want on top is on top (because you've moved all the other pictures down). If you've added all the pictures first, it isn't too bad to add the words in between, but sometimes it makes the words underlined and that is a pain in the butt. To remedy that, I type an extra line down and then erase that extra line if needed. Blogger should really revamp that whole system. The whole world has to be complaining about it (unless there is some secret I don't know about). If there is, no one in our family has figured it out. If you have peeps, you better cough it up!

Thanks Em, I appreciate the info. I'll give that a try when I do my next one.

By the way, I'm glad you've had fun cruising the blog Ben, it has definitely had it's moments. I thought you might like to read the post that started the whole thing. It's here: http://emily-lifeinaglasshouse.blogspot.com/2008/09/bloggy-blog-blog.html
I don't think Dan or Jeanine have seen this either and it is where the idea was born and also the brainstorming of names for this blog. Certainly worth a look.

Fun to see you posting, Ben! Thanks for the note about reading of the origins of this, Em. Lots of fun....

I had a ton of trouble trying to get text above the top picture, too, and got the crazy underlining and all that other stuff Em mentioned. And I really don't know how it finally worked right... Glad to have the tip, too.

I'm back! Nice to be home and see this nice post from you, Ben! You even figured out how to add video. I haven't tackled that one yet. I finally figured out that to move a picture, you have to click on it, them move the cursor to outside the picture to drag it to where you want. You can't do it while it's on the picture. Make sense?
It took me a while, now it's not so bad.

p.s. I like your Swedish Chef picture! Your National Anthem at the game was great, too!

Good to hear from you Ben and glad you are well. I think it is so cool that you are in the singing group. I hope I get to hear you sometime. Take care!
