Blog How To's...

So, I've been getting a lot of questions on how to comment and how to follow this blog.. Here's some general information in case you are new to all of this:

Posting a Comment:

Posting a comment allows you to give the author (and the internet world) some feedback on a particular post. If you would like to post a comment there are a couple of ways to go about doing this. First of all, in order to post a comment on this blog (not all blogs), you need to have an account either on Google or Aim, etc. You will be asked to log into that account before your post will go through. You can start by clicking on the title of the post or at the end of the post, there will be a "__ comments" link. It will have a number showing the number of comments for that post. When you click on either of those links, it will take you to a new page. You'll need to scroll down to the end of the post and you will see a "Post a Comment" Box where you can type in your comment. You will then need to select your account from the pull down box labeled Comment as. (Initially it will say "Select a profile". Then you can either preview your comment or post the comment. I believe it may also ask you to verify some letters/numbers before it allows you to post. After you post it, it will be available for all the world to see!


Following the Blog:

If you would like to follow this blog (or any blog), look for the Followers section where you would find the blog menus. (Normally on one of the sides). If you are already signed in, you can just click on the "Follow" button or sign into your account. If your account doen't have a photo, you'll be given a gray box with no picture but your login name will appear if you move your mouse across the box. My friend Les told me how to insert a photo small enough to fit (mine kept giving me an error message that my picture was too large). She instructed me to open the photo in photoshop and change the ppi to 72 under the resolution box, then upload your photo to your login account. Sorry, I don't know how to do this in other programs. Thanks Les for the tip!


And Now For Some Blog Candy...

For those of you who are new to blogging, Blog Candy is a term used for giveaways. Being that we are celebrating the store's new blog, Michele has decided to give out some blog candy! What we really want to know is who is reading this blog? Is anyone out there? Not many posts, so we aren't sure, but we do get some feedback that people are looking. Post a comment on this post by 6pm on Sunday, March 15th and we will pull a random name from those that comment to win this blog candy giveaway! On your post tell us what you like about the blog (if anything) and what you want to see more of... more samples (of what?), tutorials, etc. The winner will be posted on the blog and will need to stop by the store to pick up their prize.

Here's what the store's giving away...


- Winnie the Pooh Stickers
-Winnie the Pooh Punch by All Night Media
- Liquid Pearls in Lemon Yellow
-Hibiscus Lazer Cuts by Island Scrapbooking

  1. So I am pretty new to blogging. I already had an account but haven't done much to it. Maybe now I will start.

    Anyway, I get Islandscrapbooking newsletter and have taken a great card class. I keep meaning to go in and get the ultra thick embossing powder and a paste that we used because I can't find it anywhere else in Hilo. I'll come in and check out the new stuff!

    Aloha,

  3. Thanks for putting this together, I always wondered what things were going on the shop but the web site had very little information. This site keeps me up to date.
