I have to say that as pleased as I am -- and that is very pleased indeed -- that you have FINALLY got comments -- WOO-HOO!! -- I didn't really like the TypePad interface that much. I am much happier with ModBlog. Maybe it's just that to which one accustoms oneself, eh? ModBlog has fewer bells and whistles but fewer interventional error messages as well. Of course, ModBlog also neglects user support, hence the lack of error messages or indeed any messages at all, preferring to build community through desperate users reaching out to each other for clues, as near as I can tell. But unless I develop some very orderly CMS-ordered blogging practice, I think I'm gonna stay away from TypePad for now. Apparently, I truly am a low-fi person. Sniff. :)


Once you get the hang of TypePad, you be pleased with the amount of flexibility you have, and the amazing response to support questions.

You may also want to check out the Unofficial TypePad User Group at http://blog.liquidvolt.com/typepad/index.php. There a lot of help to be had there, as well as some good people.

There are more than a few ways to get images in the sidebars. Part depends on what level of TypePad service you have. Check out the "Knowledge Base" at TypePad.com or the posts at the User Group Forum.

Good Luck,
