Trying to figure things out...looking for some help

Hi - I am new. My page says I joined in 2010, but I have no memory of it (oops!), so I am just now doing my profile, submitting my blog, etc. I have a few questions. I hope someone can help me - I didn't see any other place to find answers. The "tour" was not a lot help... :-(Will my blog automatically show up on my profile when it is accepted?How does active membership benefit my blog?What is the best way to get started here - finding groups, friends, etc.?Most importantly, how do I set up the social media section? (that second part that asks for feed, etc.)...more
Darn it, that Tour link needs to come down. It's old and outdated. I'll work on that next week. ...more

Error Message After Creating a Post

Hi,I created a post about an hour ago. After saving, however, I saw that some extra 1's were to the right of each numbered item within my article. I clicked on "edit" to try to remove them (they are not in my original word document. they appeared after I clicked "save" on BlogHer). I tried unsuccessfully several times to edit them out, I even cut and paste the document again into the BlogHer form. Then I got error messages saying that my post is denied because I submitted the same document multiple times. I dont think that's what I did at all. I was editing my document....more

Buying your own domain

I recently tried to buy my own domain through blogger (I know), which registered my blog name through e-nom. I have never been able to access it, always getting the message that someone else owned my domain even though I received a receipt for my purchase. After an e-mail to both and a help center ticket with no response I've sent another e-mail hoping they will refund my money, but it doesn't look likely as per their all domain sales are final line....more

How can I take better photos for my blog?

Would appreciate some advice - I try to use an iphone to take good photos for my blog articles (when a product photo is not suitable.)  Many of the iphone shots I try to use look awful!  It's not that they aren't focused, it's just that they are boring or look amateurish.  For example, I recently tried to get a good photo of a 'turkey hot shot' dish for my last article, and it didn't look appealing at all.  I sually then end up going to istock for good photos.  Any suggestions for taking really appealing shots?  Thanks....more
