Yes it is! Here's the thread (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?p=122807&highlight=blog+ring#122807) that discusses it. You need to contact Fiber Girl.

I was just reading that other thread and thinking, I should do some work on my blog.. anyway, there was fibergirl saying blogger was a problem for her. There was I thinking "I've never had an issue with blogger" when BAM the thing went down and I got an "unexpected error."

I've been blogging on myspace but the problem there is that no one else blogs there! I feel a bit weird doing it there so I resurrected my very old blog on blogger.

Now I'm thinking I should just pay up a small amount of cash and use something else.

My problems with Blogger were more like it not doing what I wanted it to do. That and it seemed like there were frequent periods during which I couldn't load anyone's blog who used Blogger, it would just hang there. And, you know, you get what you pay for.

So I made the move to Moveable Type and pay a yearly fee for the server space and access to the software (so I don't have to buy the software itself). It's working out wonderfully, and if anyone is interested, I'd be happy to pass the info on.

I know a few people use Blogspirit. Is that one free? Mer uses it, maybe she'd be able to give you some info.

I first set up a blog on blogger and quickly changed to blogspirit because of the photo album pages. I haven't been blogging long, but I do like blogspirit much better than blogger. It is free but there are ala carte options for upgrading.

Wendie - I left a comment on KH Bloggers page...but I wanted to let you know that I've had trouble surfing the ring. When I hit next from the 39th blog on the list it moves to the 11th blog in the list - it doesn't finish out the list.

Thanks for putting all of this together - it is a great idea!

I haven't had any problems with blogger so far.

Thanks for the heads up Sara. I'll look into it when I get home tonight. We should have a little over 50 blogs in the ring.

I like the photo options on blogspirit, and it's pretty easy to use, but be prepared to learn to use it yourself! The "instructions" aren't that great (and poorly translated from French), but really it's pretty self-explainitory. It took me awhile to do those fancy things like buttons, but I figured it out eventually. ;)

I think I've figured it out, Sara - one of the blogs has an incorrect site id number. I'm going to email/pm this person and have her change it to the correct number. Unfortunately, I can't do that for her, so for now I will move her to the queue so she can fix it when she gets the chance. That should take care of the problem. Thanks for catching this! You might just get yourself the job of helping me check the ring for cracks ;)

I'm happy to help - or it could just prove that I spend way to much time on the computer. I'll be the next to get hooked on WoW or whatever!

oooh, plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay the WoWWWWWWW, doooooooo iiiiiiiiiiiittt.

(I just might enlist you, if you don't mind. For the blog ring that is. It would be a huge stress reliever while we're moving)

I'd be happy to help Wendie! I've moved enough in my life to know how stressful that is! I'm just glad the job situation worked out for you.
