    Blog links should go in the blog directory and updates can be posted there, too. Let me know if there are any problems with the directory since the server move.

    Thank you.

    This is probably a dumb question but how do you start a blog. This is something I am interested in but I don't know how to get started.

    I'm in ~ I have 2 blogs. One is my cooking blog that I update at least 5 times a week. The other is my challenge blog, which is new and is really just a place for me to keep on top of all my personal challenges.

    Here's the link to get to my cooking blog blog through FV ~ A Recipe A Day ~ there's a link to my other blog there.

    ~Thanks Libby but that is a list of blogs hosted here at FV. I think we're looking for a directory of blogs outside of FV. I keep looking but every blog link leads me to the FV blogs.~

    ~Thank you, Nancy! Don't know why I haven't seen that forum before. It hasn't been very active this year, has it?
    There's a post from Sara at the top of the forum that explains a bit about what kinds of link can be posted. So if our blogs fit the criteria, we should post links over in the Community Links section.
    This thread can continue with descriptions of our blogs, our goals and any general blogging discussion.
    I'm not sure if we'll need to update here if we update a blog in the Community Link forum. Does it automatically update once your link is in place or should we manually post an update in that forum?
    I love finding new-to-me features on FV, especially after being here for three years! Now I just have to figure out how to use them. ~
