    I created a blog site one time (long time ago) and bit off more than I could chew at that time. I was going to interview Christian writers, have a book review link, etc. I did not know what I was doing and did not stay with it. Now...I think I'm ready to get back with the program and put my full internet attention in that direction. Hopefully I can win back some readers???? Thanks for these tips on how to set up a blog site. It has inspired me in an area I have already been thinking I need to get back to. (Hopefully you'll find me at "Sensing the Sacred" soon!) High 5 to you!
