  1. Great webinar! I started a blog (MyGeorgiaRoots.blogspot.com) this year after hearing a series of podcasts by Lisa Louise Cooke. Then I watched your first "Blogging for Beginners Webinar", and now this one, and picked up more new tips. Many thanks for your time and effort in sharing your knowledge of blogs and blogging. Looking forward to the next one!

  2. DearMYRTLE, Thank you so much for the wonderful presentations yesterday. Yep watched them both! Sure gave me the push to start my own Blog too. Thank you! (http://mcmanigle.blogspot.com) Not sure how it will work out, but was fun. I too look forward to your next presentation!
