So you now have a blog up on the net. Great. I am happy to be the first to make a comment here.
I am using the Yahoo address I rarely use because there are people out there who pick up mail addresses fm blogs and use them for spamming and so on. Good luck, all you need to do is pick one observation per day, a news story, an idea, something you heard or saw on the net or whatever. Short but constant is best, and after a while you can also get ads on your blog, if you want them, they can be annoying but Google lets you place Santa Barbara-specific ads based on key words and so on. Cheers.
