Learning Curve

It's going to take me a bit to learn the format here at Live Journal. So far I've figured out how to create my own journal, how to post a topic on the women exmormons site and how to respond to comments. I suspect there's a ton more to figure out. The comment field for posting an entry is pretty much like the one at Postmo or blogspot and allows photos to be inserted but not arranged next to the text field.

A lot of the options are listed in tiny little letters at the top top part of the Live Journal bar. That was confusing. Then if you don't click to post into the women exmormons page the post will dump into your own journal. That was a little frustrating at first.

It appears that the comments can have their own legs that can trail into little roots, sort of like on Democratic Underground where one comment can lead to seven layers of replies, all linked back to the original topic. That's pretty cool because it keeps them in context with each other and prevents those irritating silly full text quotes followed by a simple LOL like I see on Postmo.

I'm going to try to figure out how to link my blog to my photo image but otherwise the yellow smiley face is what you get. I don't plan to change that. That's me, most of the time unless I'm sad. Winter depresses me till I can get out in the garden but hopefully communicating with you folks will help me through the time between now and then.

Thanks again for inviting me to your group. I'm not very good at some of the games people play and if I can't head off a kerfuckle with a bit of humor I'll just bow out. Only rarely will I lob a flaming bag of dog poo back at someone and that's only after they've drawn first blood and been quite blatant in their attack. I don't play fair if that's the case and consider a backstabbing attack an invitation for a severed head. I've only ever had to use these evil powers a few times. Usually I find that ignoring someone that is a troublemaker starves them of the attention and they wither up and die or go away on their own to some place where they can poke and prod and get the desired attention.

Ok, enough of all that. Hope I can fit here with you ladies and learn how to play nice. If I do offend it's usually not intentional and a private message will go a long way to help me clear up any misunderstanding or percieved offense. I cuss and talk smack a bit, especially about the church leaders so if you're still loyal to the church you might want to ignore my rants.
