Default New member & confused

Hi, I don't know if this is the way its done, but its the way I'm doing it. I'm confused about how to post. I figured out how to "reply", but didn't want to introduce myself under someone else's intro. In any case, today is a day of learning for me as I started a blog and joined here. This is the first time I have been in a forum in years and it has changed to some degree. I have also never posted anything but a reply to someone else. Anyway, I am posting this and am wondering if my post will get moved, or even if I will be able to find it again. Let the test run begin.....

Welcome to SCS! You're already doing better than I did when I first joined. I was so nervous about doing something wrong, but you've jumped in with both feet and have done well. You will love the community here. Looking forward to seeing your work!

Thank you all for the warm welcome. I'm not sure if I am to reply to each individual that responded to me or if this is an ok way to say "Thank You". I went to all your blogs and thoroughly enjoyed reading and looking at your wonderful art work. Hopefully I will have my blog up and running by the end of the week. I have a lot of learning via trial & error to do and am still in "test run" mode. Thank you again for the warm welcome

Hi and Welcome from Alberta, Canada! I look forward to seeing your blog! Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about the site.

Also, let me know if you need any help with your blog, I know beginning one can be quite overwhelming, and I'm kind of a computer geek at heart

OK, I see I'm the only one that has my URL address showing. How does one do the "My Blog" thing with the address hidden under it? By the time I get all of this figured out my hair is going to be totally gray.

Thank you Sabrina and Diane. The second link worked, looks simple enough. Just one more step than what I did where I posted my link. I will do my link this afternoon when I have more time. Thank you again Ladies

Thank you everyone who has helped me. I still need to put my picture up and post to the gallery, but that will come a little later when I have a picture and something to upload. Like the baby birds out side my window, I think I'm about ready to fly. Now off to my room to make some cards. Thanks again everyone.

Joyce, I was hoping that one of the helpful people on this thread was going to answer that, as I have been here a short while and am now wondering the same thing.

Welcome.

Joyce and everyone,

I used the link that pinkberry supplied earlier, and I found how to post the picture on this page: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...rofilepicture/

I will get a pic posted. Thanks. And I will figure out that signature a bit later

Thanks for the link jardin434. I checked it out and it looks easy enough. I have uploaded a card to my gallery, and it was pretty easy.. Now I need to find a pix.

I uploaded a picture to my profile, so this is a test post to see if it shows up in the column with my name. The picture was taken in my yard, by my daughter with her cell phone.

Ok, how do you get the profile pix over there in the column on the left that has my name and my join date in it? Back to the drawing board

Hi Joyce - there are two upload fields - one for your profile pic, and one for your avatar.

The avatar field is what shows up when you post like this, so if you upload there, you will see it!

The profile is what people see when they click to view your profile.

Thank you so much Lydia, I really appreciate your quick response. I will work on my Avatar today.
I love your blog, just can't figure out how to be a "follower" on it. And I just figured out how to leave my name on a comment when I find a comment line. I am enjoying this blogging, but still so much to learn.

I blocked a blogger on my blog. Did I do wrong? From info gathered, he didn't appear to be interested in card making/scrapbooking but in freeing Tibet. I don't understand, but it scares me. I removed my specific personal info. oh oh I just realized, he's going to get that info.

I decided to go check out my mysterious blogger. I looked at some of the sites he follows and then unblocked him. I'm still a bit wary, but.. I can't panic everytime a mysterious person visits my blog. This person visits some very interesting blogs.

I wouldn't be scared. Most people are harmless. Even the spammers. I wouldn't worry about it unless he leaves a spammy comment. When you block someone, sometimes their privileges get suspended, so you should only do that if you're sure they're really bad

Thank you, makes me feel a little better. I did unblock right after I posted.

I seem to get answers when I come here, so I'mm baaaack.
I notice that most of the blogs require some sort of ID to leave a comment, some require you copy some letters and some require the owner to check the comment before it posts. How does one do any or all of the above?
Of course I will continue looking for the answer myself, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

I cannot speak to all of your examples, but whenever a blog requires us to copy some letters, simply keyboard those same letters into the empty text box provided. This is simply a form of "spam" protection for the blog. It has "nothing" to do with you, the poster.

I'm back with a question. I see a "watermark" on the pictures you ladies post. I don't know what to call it other than "watermark". It is your name, etc over the picture. How do I put that on mine?
