Getting to know you.....
I finally figured out how to put "Comments" up on my home page. You can see the tiny comment tab below each of my posts -- and on each book page you will find a comment box. I have also added an email connection so you can get any news/new comments etc from my blog sent to you via email. You will need to have a Twitter, Yahoo, or Google account to become a subscriber or "Follower" of my website/blog.
You do NOT need to have a Google email - just an account. This also allows you to go onto Google maps. It's worth joining Google just for that.
Last week I went on google world maps and was able to "stand" right in front of Jim's great-grandparents' old Georgian House in Edinburgh AND take a virtual picture to keep. I've also been to the villages my family came from in England - right on the main road in front of the buildings. It's amazing! I also use it to go on any of my city streets to locate a new restaurant. You can do this - go to the street, and find the restaurant and the cross roads nearest and parking (!) before you leave your home. Works great for business offices, too. :-)

Oh, I have to play with the Google World Maps feature... just think: we can get photos of the homes "our authors" lived in, without plane tickets!
I use Google earth all the time. It's great!
Karyn, I agree. That would be amazing. Mmm. Who to start with?
Sara Jeannette Duncan. My goodness, there's a question? (Oh, are my obsessions showing again!? Dang...)
