I am trying to honor my commitment to post my stuff here for the time being, but I am wondering:  should I send a blast to my Open Salon Readers to tell them that I am posting here, or would that seem  unseemly.  

Also, can anyone tell me why the link to start a new post is all the way down at the bottom of the page with the comments instead of being at the top of the page?

Just wondering.

Alan - regarding your first question, I think it would be helpful to let people on Open know you are posting here.  As to your second question - I don't have a clue - I have wondered that myself.  Maybe when lorianne gets up from her nap, she'll be feeling better and be able to answer.

if you click the link in the left column under your picture titled 'most recent blogs' it will bring up your blog list with an "add" button on top.

the reason the add link is on the bottom of your blog list on your main page is that the main page design of blogs is geared to be more reader friendly than user.

I've kind of got the same question but I'm not doing that yet. I'll probably double-post for the simple reason that I have some issues with using one site excessively to recruit for another, so I won't provide the link to here. (Yeah, I know, coming from me that's a pretty comical thought, but I switched to e-mail whenever I had addresses during the last effort.)  It was one thing while the first site wasn't usable, then I was offering a solution to a problem that the other site was responsible for.

What I think will happen is that OS will have technical problems again. At that point, we've laid the groundwork for how to do this.

I am getting very confused about all of this, Kosh.  You rightly criticized me for my own confusion how to divide my posts between sagemerlin and alanmilner, and I am still confused about that.  I am however looking for a larger audience and that more or less dictates that I use my name rather than a pen name. That gets complicated because I have three different "real" names, one in English, one in Hebrew and a third one in Arabic.  When I introduce myself, I say Alan, when Satya introduces me she tells people that I am Sage.  Gets rather confusing.

I don't share Kosh's concerns about recruiting from OS -- OS and its interminable problems are the reason Lorianne founded Our Salon.  I did send PMs to a select list of my regular readers to let them know I would be exclusively over here this week.
