Thanks!






I'd like to say thanks to all those who came to listen to my song, "From The Soul Within" and watch the wonderful video. I would never have done this without Annelisa's encouragement and most of all her technical knowledge! She has wonderful pictures on her blog! Check them out! Annelisa also has another blog that hosts her an amazing story and video about shaving 2 1/2 feet of her hair for Cancer!

I was really thrilled to have both song and video up on You-Tube and it's had about 740 hits!

Thanks again all the way from my house to yours!

Something really strange has happened to Old Blogger tonight...all of a sudden I can't make links work, half the top bar in Create Mode is gone so I can't centre poems, and when you upload pictures, they just appear in gobbly-gook computer language where it used to show actual pictures! Is this Blogger trying to take away my old familiar features until I give in and change to the New Blogger? If I change, do I lose anything in the Draft Mode? Will it show all the previous blogs? And how do I even get a Google account, let alone sign in with one? Oh woe is me!

Annelisa's blog is www.wordsthatflow.blogspot.com (Sorry AL!)

Hi, so glad to hear you have had so many hits on YouTube. It's well deserved.
And what nice pictures you have posted.
I do know what link to click next ;D

Shifting to new blogger: I copied the whole html-code for my sidebar to a document.
Then changed, choosed a new lay-out, and published.
Discovered some missing links and features.
Then opened the template in one window, and the copied html-code.
Well, a litle struggle and work, and copy and paste: Voila.

What I see from your present blogdesign and sidebar, you should have no problem at all, maybe except for the sound - which I haven't had any experiences with so far.

PS. I'm really in love with your song.

I just switched to the 'new blogger'. I've put up one post, yesterday. Today, I can't access comments on my post and can't access about 1/2 of my fellow Blogger bloggers.

I have no html skills. I usually wait a few days and things sort out. If not, I put up a plea for help and my friends in the computer come to my aid.

As far as getting a Google account, I just clicked on the "so you want to switch to the new blogger" box that was offered when I went to sign on 2 days ago and it did the rest.

I'm of no help but of endless sympathy and empathy.

Oh, btw - thanks for your kind words! I almost forget them in my speed to sort out the blogger probs! :-) [can't have you threatening to leave the blogosphere, can we - you're an integral part of my 'virtual' social life! :-D ]

And, as I said before, it was my pleasure, MOI - it gave me the opportunity to try something I hadn't done before and I got to listen to your song over and over :-)

This is really MOI speaking anon so I don't have to log in 'cause it'll make me switch and I'm on the lousy-no-juice-computer until I can use my husband's good one after office hours!! I'm dodging dumb ole Blogger! How scathingly brilliant, eh?

Toraa: Thanks for your hints. Wish you were here to help me! I'll try it but with great apprehension! Not even sure what part I copy when you say html...the whole thing?

My song returns the Love!


Diana: So glad you are like me in matters of technology! Just hope I don't lose anything. I don't see why they have to force you off so quickly. I'm totally paranoid now since I haven't had a chance to read all the info on "Help".

Annelisa: Thanks for the offer..I'm sure I'll need it! And, you are most welcome to my song!

Sorry Steve, I was so busy outwitting Blogger that I signed off too soon!
HA! HA! Blogger will jump out at you from behind the bushes soon enough! Then you'll be asking for help too! Good luck with all of THAT!

I think Blogger freaks out every once in a while. Congrats on all your Youtube hits.

Are these pictures of your house in the beautiful snow?

I have found blogger to be giving me a lot of grief lately. I have had a great deal of difficulty leaving comments.

Besides, you shouldn't be thanking us, we should be thanking you for letting us bask in your presence.

Old Lady: I'm paranoid I'll lose some writing and all that's in draft. Thanks! yep, this is our house and yes, I'm still putting the white lights that are around the door and on the little trees and the blue lights on the big evergreens! Our house looks like it should be out in the country but we're on the main street. I love where we live and the house.

Richard: So you're on Beta or New Blogger? Still grief? I was hoping they'd have all the kinks out by now! If I disappear for awhile, you'll know what happened!
Bask in my presence? That is funny...kind of as if I were the sun! Well most of the time I have a sunny personality!

Thanks for saying such nice things and for liking the song/video.

I have both beta and old blogger accounts. I find the beta account works better - but then again, I use it very infrequently, so I do not have a good representative sample.

Such lovely winter photos.. and such a lovely song.

I don't use Blogger.com but your laments appear to concur with many others on Blogger recently.

Hi MoI! I love that voice. I am glad you are still playing it.

And thats your house all covered in snow. lucky you :) no deep snow here yet. or maybe lucky us.

about google account. you need a gmail account first. easy to sign up if you go to gmail.com.

and then when you log in to old blogger, you sometimes see the option of changing the blog to new blogger. or you can search convert to new blogger. also, when you log in, try to update your user info to include the gmail account.

hope this helps. i know, i kind of went back and forth and thena ll of a sudden, it was ll done in a flash and everything in tact. just dont 'delete' your old accounts or
blogs. once you choose to convert, it will be automatically done and within a couple of hours blogger will send youa message to your gmail account that it is done.

and fromt hen on, you log in with your gmail login and password. its convenient actually, becos once you log into your gmail, you can acces blooger automatically, so helps for ocmment moderation etc.


hope this helps and i dint actually make u more confused.

No worries! I don't think you will lose your drafts, but just copy and past them (use your right click on your mouse) into a Word document first if you are worried. I'll send you an invitation to gmail in a minute and... you will figure it out!! It's easier to use the new Blogger I think, but it does take a little while to make everything the way you want it again, so be patient with it. You should use www.flickr.com for your pictures, so that you don't have to rely on Blogger. But leave that for another day.

Richard: I just want 1 blog for everything...I'd get confused and I wouldn't know how to transfr posts over to a new one. I'm pretty hopeless at this stuff..I didn't even create my 1st blog, a friend did, but at least I did this one. If it gets really confusing, I'll get Annelisa, the girl who put the song and video on You-Tube, to do it for me...and then I'll owe her big time! If I didn't have help I'd probably scrap the whole blog thing since this stuff just bothers and stresses me me. I'd continue reading others' blogs though!

Coll: Thanks so much for coming to see and here this song! That's my house and back yard.

Laments are certainly what I've come to know and I haven't even switched yet! I may be "playing" "The Last Post" sooner than I thought!

Mystic: Thanks..yeah I guess Annelisa did that which is neat..she's a techy genious!

Yes, we've had a lot of snow and wil get more soon. It's really cold now!

Does gmail mean Google Account? What if I don't want another e-mail since I like the one I've got? Can you just create it for blogging and still use your other account for all other e-mail?

Every time I see the words "Old Blogger", I see it as "Old Bugger"! Hmmm..not far from the truth!

Bobealia: No worries?!! That'll be the day! Just e-mailed you some questions. At least I can kep reading others' posts and just keep this account open and just not post for a long time! This may have been The Last Post!

Just give in and make the switch. I think Old Blogger is just about ready to self-destruct!

Do you care if we share your song with Doris and Sean from Side by Side (the duo who did our house concert)? That's exactly the kind of music they sing. I would like more of the world to hear your beautiful song!

What a beautiful song and wonderful lyrics - it really touched my heart as I saw the pics running while listening: From wide scenery to the details of the nature. How gorgeously you have composed this!
Just been there (on YourTube) and there are 972 Views - your worth all of them!

Btw: Your winter, snowy pictures looks awfully good. As a Norwegian, I just love that kind of view too you known and having the in-laws over from the US, we happily was blessed with the same kind so that we could show them the Winter Wonder Land in the natural and best way.

wishing you a lovely end to your week:-)

Barbara: Yes, I think "Old Bugger" is dying a slow death! I'm biting the bullet and trying tomorrow.

You certainly may! I'm so honoured that you want to share my song with your "concert dinner party friends"!

Renny: Hey, thanks for saying such nice compliments! The video was all Annelisa's work, she has great pics on her blog...see Words That Flow on my sidebar. She did a great job and it was her first ever! I can't believe there's been 972 hits on You-Tube!

I'm glad you had your typical snow to show your in-laws your beautiful country! Tour on!

AL: Tomorrow's the day!

The song is playing now. I'm imagining you singing in the house and it's coming out the windows...not that you'd have the windows open in the winter! Is it your house?

When you can't post right it's as if your car is broken down and you can't get where you want to!

It is our house! I still have the wreath and lights on the bushes..it looks so cool glowing from under all that snow!

Blogger can be a nightmare, but I hope the changeover won't be!

Hallo,
I did make a comment to give you a clue what to do, but the comment box does not allow html-coding.

I have saved my comment with some directions in a document.

Send me an e-mail:

taaboe@yahoo.no

and I'll return the document
