I've successfully created my very first blog! I havent't been very creative regarding the "look" of my page, however. I'm finding it takes a lot of time to be artistic while experimenting with the many different templates, settings and layouts. Perhaps you've noticed, too that I didn't follow directions very well, since I preferred using a real picture of myself in place of Yahoo's "avatar" version. The directions are very thorough and I appreciate the many additional links that give good explaination of everthing related to the "23 things on a stick" course.
So along with possibly improving the look of my page (as time allows), I look forward to completion of the next 22 web tools. I know I'll be challenged, and perhaps even frustrated, but here's to getting started!
