Ok, I have a blog - Now What?

While I'm not a newbie with websites, I am a newbie with writing blogs.

So far I have:

1 - A Name for my blog.  I love my Deep South!  (See below - one of Savannah, Georgia's many beautiful squares.)

I wanted a title that would allow me to meander with a lot of different topics.
The thought of my "South Country Sides" makes me smile.  I can write about a lot of different things with this title.



2 - A much better Look to my blog.  Thank you, Ginger, for "prettying up" the header and the hand holding you've done for me already.  If I can have half as much fun with my blog as you have with your www.literallyinspired.com blog, I'll be satisfied.




3 - Topics - I have a long list of topics I'm interested in and hope that you will be also.

4 - Pictures - Now What?  I came to a screeching halt with this thought.

What can I use without infringing on copyright laws?  Pictures make a big difference in a blog and I'll need to use some that I haven't taken personally.

Thank you, Google!  I searched for help on what was legal, allowed, etc.  I found this wonderful website with great information and how-to steps to accomplish just what I want to do...legally.



So - here's my blogging tip for the day.  Check out the website above and type on.  The world's full of wonderful people with interesting things to share and I'm jumping right in with them.

Happy Blogging!

I am sure every new blogger has that same question. "Now what do I do?" I know I did. I am proud of you and I can't wait to read your next post!

How fun! Looking forward to your posts! And, thanks for the link, I always get so nervous to post pictures now... See, I'm already learning :)

Thank you Ginger from www.literallyinspired.com and Carmella from http://creativecarmella.blogspot.com/ I was really surprised how easy the photo tools were - especially the "imagecodr" part. I love reading your posts!
