commercial blog service

Why Blogging, Bloggers, and Blogs Improve your Online Business Presence at TypePad:

"A blog connects you with the people who matter

Blog to find a new job or to write about the one you have. Blog to broadcast news to the world or to share your individual passion. Use a blog to engage with your customers or to find new ones.

It’s easy to start and maintain

You don’t need an IT staff or a degree in computer science to start a TypePad blog. Designing your blog is point-and-click, and updating your blog is simpler than sending an email. You can be up and running in minutes. We take care of the hard stuff, so you can focus on your message.
TypePad is a great value

A blog is a powerful, cost-effective alternative to a website or email newsletter. Why spend thousands of dollars on design and hosting, only to have the site go stale? A TypePad blog is an easy way to have a great-looking, up-to-date, search-engine friendly presence on the web."

Accessing Blogger in Beta

Blogger Help : How can I use the new Blogger Layouts features?

How do I switch to Blogger in beta?

Thanks for your interest in all the new features we've got coming up! The Blogger in beta program is going to start out small, so only a low percentage of people who log in to Blogger will see the option to switch over. If you're one of them, you'll see a blue box in the sidebar of your dashboard highlighting the new Blogger in beta. Click the "learn more" link there and we'll walk you through the process of switching your account.

Part of this change involves converting your Blogger account into a Google Account (learn more about Google Accounts). If you already have a Google Account, log in with your Google Account email address and password when prompted. A confirmation message will appear to indicate success.

10 Basic Steps For Getting Your First Novel Published

How I Did It

1) Write and rewrite the first 3 chapters of your novel and polish them to perfection. Make them the absolute best you're capable of. It took me almost as long to write the first 3 chapters of Sisters and Lovers as it did to write the entire novel.

Google Blogger Beta

A very quiet discussion Google Blogger Beta | Google Groups:
Google Blogger Beta which was launched 14 August 2006 Blogger Buzz: Blogger in beta

or are we expected to comment on the Testing Blogger Beta beta blog?

blogger beta - Google Search
another point of entry blogger beta - Google Image Search

via blogger beta - Google Video search
en pasant
Banjo's World: Vlog No. 001 - Google Video WOW!!! that is astonishing

and back to blogger beta - Google Groups suggests the discussion is on the general blogger groups Google Groups: Blogger Help Group

I posted the following comment which awaits moderation:-

my blogger classic predates my google mail so it is tied to an aol.com email address and log on
http://www.blogger.com/my old profile/

I was invited to gmail as an existing blogger account ( I came in via the google tool bar BLOG THIS button after the beta google.com days when I switched from altavista searching http://www.altavista.com/
BTW I am not the professor Hugh Watkins, MD, PhD, Dept of Cardiovascular Medicine, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK OX28AF. E-mail hugh.watkins{at}cardiov.ox.ac.uk)

and my own adsense account uses another aol.com email for both classic and beta

I use my gmail acccount for blogger beta

In Firefox on the Mac the Blog This button links to my classic account even though I am blogging in blogger beta as well

using an Intel mac I have Parallels and so have classic blogger open in MS IE on Win XP
and the beta on Firefox on Mac OS 10.4.8

When I have populated the beta blogs a little more
I will update the side bars on all my blogs to completely cross links blogs and sites

so aa in any beta best to use a seperate account for testing

Experience gmailers will know how to open a second account anyway by invitiation to themselves at a fourth unconnected email address readable by POP mail (alongside imap at aol for example)

cat at sunset

On about 29 September 2006 I was hanging out of my kitchen window on the seventh floor of Merton House to look west in order to photograph the sunset

I realised I was being watched

I rushed to get my handicam and zoomed in

Post Office Tower in Birmingham and the radio mast is still further away about 20 miles

neighbours who never disturb me

Boaworth Drive looking towards Chelmsley Wood

this bus stop is still intact

an airliner on final approach to Birmingham airport
the starboard wingtip light is the green dot

when they land at BHX they pass out of my sight

Wingtip vortices - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
just as a spelling check

up date on sunday

Parallels is running but the virtual machine is off in the window on the upper screen
the desktop background a very blurred picture of a fence taken from a moving train in Holte, near Copenhagen Denmark

I like to start early
the £10 fiche reader for family history transcription is on the table to my right.

my own pictures as a desk top during start up - they are part of a failed upload blog about my flight from CPH to BHX

The Brazilian F1 is on ITV so this can only be a brief blog

I am designing a new desk to be built out of odds and ends,
and it will be placed in the other room nearer my TV.

About Me

angry and frustrated in Copenhagen or Birmingham


and so that was a storm in a teacup all about registration of MAC numbers on the Brumleby WAN ethernet system

once it was working it was brilliant 10mb /10 mb


and this is the third time I am going to try to knock out a draft novel in one month by joining in with National Novel Writing Month - home page

What started off in USA is now world wide - a freudian typo just made me say world wild. This time I am going to work autobiographically. In 2004 it was Viking Novel
see:- and in 2005 Iron Way - which turned into such a good idea that I froze it and and put off writing until I got more research done.

I started with google when it was a beta search engine, and began blogging before the advent of gmail AKA google mail, because the orange blog this button turned up on the google tool bar.
  • 08/10/2003 - 08/16/2003

  • look at my old profile to get the list of all my old blogs in the order in which I created them, top down with the oldest first.

    I think I will be maintaining three main blogs - this one as a daily diary and GENEALOGE for my family history and genealogy and I will reduce my three photo blogs of snap shots
    to one, which I will create on this new beta blogger in the next couple of days, in the hope that photo diary uploads will be easier with the new technology.

    This years draft "novel" will get posted on My Memories thirty days in Novemeber - will that be 30 chapters?

    I self censor all my blogs because I like to be available widely, and some words that I would use in street speech, trigger automatic cenmsorship.
    A Solihull library computer even refused to let me read an email because it was written in Danish.
