frustrating and amazing.
Part one: Frustrating
Look above here. Do you see a header? NO! I spent an hour last night following Brenda’s tutorial for adding a banner. I found the URL, I removed the HTML and replaced it with the URL, but when I previewed instead of seeing my beautiful image, I saw a box with the URL typed into it.
Now, I specifically bred my children to be smarter than I am so that I could become one of those adults who can’t do ‘stuff’. Then they could do ‘stuff’ for me. In this endeavour, however, they both proved to be useless! What good are complex maths equations and scientific knowledge when you can’t help your mum to improve her blog!?
Please if any of you are cleverer than I am, offer me your wisdom.
Part two: Amazing – you may need a tissue now
I wrote recently about my sister’s friend who lost her three year old daughter, Ava. My sister’s friend Sheye is a blogger. Her blog and photography touched many people and linked her with like-minded people around the world.
As a tribute to Ava my sister released pink balloons in a local park with a group of friends and family.
On the same day pink balloons were released all over the world by people who had never met Ava, but were deeply touched by her story. You can see photos of this amazing event here. What a beautiful network blogging creates.
