I don't know if it's fair to ask here but there seemed to be so much information about avatars that I thought I'd give it a try.

Does anyone know how to massage a blog to get the best appearance. I'm actually pretty proud of my computer-illiterate self for getting photos on my blog but I'm not happy with where they situate themselves. Is there a way to boss them around and make them appear where I want them to be?

I use Blogger and a Mac. And thanks in advance for sharing your expertise! Wink

Rainey, Sam of 'Becks & Posh' set up a forum to "learn more about the technicalites of blogging" Many of the people there have "blogger" blogs.

Yes, you can be the boss of your blog.

Rainey - you are so clever. I couldn't get photos onto Blogspot so moved to Typepad because it was easier.

Barbara- I'm laughing, babe, because I think the word you're looking for is compulsive/obsessive. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Actually, I manage, often, not because I know what I'm doing but because I get a template, paste in something that "worked" somewhere and edit it to fit the situation I put it in.

Glad you found something that worked for you. In fact, are you and your husband the ones who have the blog with the panoramic landscape photos? They're awesome!!! I'd say that transcends the concept of "works"! Wink

That would be Greg's handiwork. I don't know the first thing about digital photography or uploading pics onto a website, but he is good at it. I write some of the descriptions and he does the rest.

A somewhat related thought -- while everyone is thinking about appearance, you might want to think about getting traffic too. One way to drive traffic to your own blog is to use "tagging" features that may be present in your blog software. I could go into detail here but instead I suggest that you look at this discussion:

http://www.technorati.com/help/tags.html

In short, tagging your blog with certain words helps search engines find them more easily, thereby connecting you with the person looking for your kind of information or opinion.
