I should have waited a little longer to notify everyone of the new blog. Because now I have to let them know that I have changed the title. More than 1 artist friend suggested to me that I use my name in the blog title rather than "katmagic" and I know that is good advice. So, the address will now be: mixedmessagebykathleenmattox.blogspot.com
Slowly but surely, I'm understanding the process. I can say nothing but good things about blogger.com in terms of ease of use, reliability, and attractiveness. It is a good program for a beginning blogger to start out with!
