I'm brand new to blog and TypePad...Hope I'm doing fine . It's been a quiet day ....my last leisure Saturday before lessons start on Monday. And it's going to be hectic then ! I do hope I'm going to make time daily to drop a line in here ...Anyway, I'm not sure how it works and I'd greatly appreciate tips and advice from advanced users . I'm having an evening out tonight with my husband and some friends. Fine dining and then probably a bar or cafe....tragic day to start a weblog , isn't it ???
That was my first blog ever! New to TypePad and new to the blogsphere. I didn't post a photo because I didn't know how! TypePad was one year old then - just a baby! And I was looking for a safe place to blog from. My friend Jeff had suggested me trying TypePad. Well, first I took the 30-day free trial and was so excited! Then I registered and signed up for a relatively low cost - $89 yearly but I could have all the great tools offered exclusively by the baby TypePad in 2004.
But like all babies, TypePad grew up fast! Despite the fact that I joined Yahoo!360 one year later, I didn't have the heart to give up on.... toddler TypePad. As I have recently said on a recent post on My Blogging Experience, TypePad was something like my online hiding-place. As for the great TypePad team, they'd go out of their way to help within 24 hours!
While celebrating my 500th post on TypePad, please let me thnak from the bottom of my heart TypePad and Six Apart for this wonderful blogging experience, which is I think unique in the blogsphere and is great value for money.. But I would also like to thank the cool staff from Help Tickets who really did their very best to solve my problems.... within 24 hours!
Thanks a million !
...and please forgive me if I've forgotten someone....
I would also like to thank from the bottom of my heart Ginevra and everything she does to make this blogging experience even greater!
Last but not least, thanks all those of you who visit and /or comment. It's greatly appreciated.
The Coolest TypePad Feature (ah right! TypePad is 6 years old now!!!)
The auto-saved post! Did your computer freeze all of a sudden while typing a post? Did your computer crush? Did you need to leave your post box and search something..on google let's say? Believe me you haven't lost your post ...it's been autosaved while you were wandering online! Once back, you choose create a post and then you are asked whether you would like to recover your auto-saved post! As we say in French : Chapeau TypePad! The 6-year-old kid has turned into a brand new Harry Potter! Thank you TypePad and Six Apart for this unique online experience! Efcharisto!
