Grandma Sal Posted: Sun, Nov 21 2010 7:16 PM

I first logged in here two days ago.  Yesterday I watched a couple videos.  Today I had a little more time to explore.  I figured out how to change my profile picture, and I posted a reply to someone's post.  I have looked through a couple of the blog posts, but I do not see any way to create a blog post.  I have seen posts where people have created a personal signature... and I have seen posts with a tally of "Points".  How can I make a signature, and how do you accumulate points?

This looks like a really great place and I'm excited to find out all there is to learn here.

Grandma Sal,

 

Welcome to QCA-- you will love it here-  I am fairly new myself and didn't know what points meant either so I did a search on "points" and QCA had an explanation of them.  Do you see the "SEARCH" BOX  use that and just type in points and it will give you a page you can scroll down to an explanation of them.  Everyone is very helpful and kind!

Welcome Sallie!  It's good to hear you're finding your way around.  I think I read that the blogs are going away in favor of the galleries.   Did others of you see that, too, or am I mistaken?

Cute profile pic!  What's your kitty's name?

I think it was just the Show and Tell blog that was being replace with the gallery.  The other blogs I think will remain in place.

I pretty much figured out if I don't see what I'm looking for, I need to do a search.  I don't know what is happening with the blog thing, but on my search on creating a blog I found out that I already had one based on the blog reference I added to my profile.  I have had a blog for a long time, so it looks like it isn't directly a part of this site, but rather a link to wherever a blog happens to be published.

I have a few kitties... the one in the profile is named Boston.  It was supposed to be referring to Boston Blackie an old time movie character... then we found out that Boston was a she... but we kept Boston's name anyhow.  We had a momma kitty decide to have her kittens in our garage 3 1/2 years ago.  Up till then we only had a dog.  The momma took off but we decided to keep all the kitties.

Grandma Sal,

I welcomed you on another thread but I'll say hello and welcome again. It's good to have yo with us and nice to see you're getting the hang of navigating the site.

we all have blogs here on QCA (created with membership). Starting from your home page click on "My Blog". On the right side of the page close to the top there are shortcuts "Home", "Contact", "Write a new post", and "Control Panel". The Control Panel is where you configure your blog.
