Bea was been in touch again. I am still hoping that she will set up a blog and lead me into the light. Dante had his Bea, and so do I, in my own way. Dante never got any missives from his Beatrice. I'm lucky! Perhaps I should start a new category 'Beatrix'. Done! (See the categories on my right navigation bar!). So Bea wrote:
last time my email on hotmail didn't work. I don't know why. I suppose "Bill Gates and his gang" are at work again ... ha ha!
Yes, I know that I haven't got anything done AT ALL yet on my site, and I repeat, YET.
I'm going to work on it now ...
["Bill Gates and his gang" is a reference to a comment about Microsoft that I made towards the bottom of a post 'Bea to the rescue'.]
maybe it didn't work because, at Hotmail, if you don't use your email for a month, it gets semi-closed down, but does leave you the option of waking it up again (It used to be if you didn't use it for three months). Might that have been what happened?
I looked on your site again. I think that it probably doesn't have blogging software built in. If it did, I think that it would advertise this fact.
Can I make a suggestion about where to go to build a state-of-the-art
open source - meaning free! - blogging site for the panda bears? [Bea is setting up a site with her cousin to save the endangered pandas.] I would
suggest Word Press. Ultra cool cats - cool at
least in my world - use it. I don't know about cool pandas.
I should switch to it myself and intend to but, for the moment, I'm paying about $7 a month (I think it is) at Typepad . The functionality at Word Press would be pretty much the same - in fact probably better - but building a blog there would involve a bit more work and application of brain power. But for a brain box like you, that wouldn't be a problem, and open source, as I mentioned, is the way to go (Bill and his gang probably hate it. They may have nightmares about it.).
I'm waiting to get a bit more wind behind the sails of my blog before switching it into Word Press. For my $7 I get free support which has been helpful. In its place, Word Press would offer, I imagine, very active community help-one-another fora, where cool pandas just might hang out.
yes, I think you're right about my site. It hasn't got that blogging thing that I have on my MSN site (my MSN 'space', as they call it).
Thanks for giving me the site for cool pandas, or whatever.
I'm going to check it out.
