    @whatdoiluv, your blog look's fine and the content look's great.

    What you have not done is add tag's to your post's and put them into categorie's, your combinded max should be about 9 - 10, this is what the search engine's will be looking for, and is your blog url listed with the search engine's. have a look at my blog to see what i mean about tag's.

    btw, no need to post your blog url it's in your name, so we just click it.

  3. Ahhhh; I see.
    Thank you for the great advise... I will check that out.
    In the mean time; I'm reading your blog.
    ...how do I know if the url is listed with the search engine?
    Thanks again.

    It looks good! You should also update your blogroll - it's still set with the ones WordPress starts it with (or you can just delete the blogroll, if you don't want it).

  5. Thank you!
    I wish I knew how... I think I have a lot of reading to do.
