I'd like to add a picture of myself into my sidebar. I saw this done in someone else's WP blog (she has the 2010 theme; I have the 2011). However, when I search the Support docs, all I see are instructions on how to insert an image INTO A POST. On my Dashboard, under "Widgets" there is a button that says "add an image to your sidebar". However, when I open it up, it asks for the URL (as though I'm linking to another site). All I want to do is upload a photo of myself from MY HARDDRIVE to the sidebar. Please, how do I do this?
Second, the "PressThis" button/widget. I read the directions several times. If I try the left-click/drag-drop method to my Favorites area, it won't drag/drop. If I right-click, it will not add to my Favorites. What am I doing wrong?
Third, from reading the Support docs, I understand that since my privacy setting allows every (including search engines) to see my posts, then my blog is automatically seen and/or included on major search engines. However, I was told that it's a good idea to post my URL with search engines; one source suggested TrafficFlowSEO.com where I can post with many search engines. Should I go ahead and do this or would it be redundant in light of the above?
Thanks very much for your help.
