The Bumbling Blog Builder - No more!

Blog hosts, registries, domains, OH MY!

There once was a woman who decided to build a nice little blog that she could call her own. She'd become an avid follower of other blogs, all charming and witty or wise, and thought, "How wonderful it would be to have my own blog, where I could impart my wit and wisdom, maybe giveaway a blender or two!" She began her endeavor with gusto but quickly learned she was in way over her head.

I truly (naively) expected to find a step sheet via a search engine, but I became frustrated in the the mass of hits that were returned. As you can see, I did get as far as choosing the blog software I wanted to use and snagging what I think is a great name (ok--it was actually a devine revelation after days of torturous brainstorming). But I had many more questions than answers and resumed my searching. Finally, I stumbled upon a blogger named Metropolitan Mama (who doesn't know me from Adam). She offers a fabulous e-book that looks to be just what I need!

So, here we are. My first post on my freshly-made blog! Please drop in from time to time to check on its progress! I really do anticipate being able to impart SOME form of wisdom, wit, or charm!

Did you have any favorite resources that helped you build your blog? Please leave a comment telling me about them...
