Thank you for the positive feedback! I'm glad you subscribed. I've found that building traffic has been the biggest challenge. I'm using facebook, but not Twitter. I don't Tweet : ) I guess that will have to come soon.
Right now I'm using a Canon Rebel Digital SLR camera. It's working fine, but I am looking to purchase a new lens that allows for closer pics and better detail. David Lebovitz has a great blog and he provides information on his camera equipment. I think I will be looking to follow his advice on my next lens purchase. Here's a link to his camera info:
Thanks so much! I'm just using a template that wordpress provides. It's called Under the Influence. It was fairly easy to set-up. Most of the questions I had I found answers for on the wordpress support site. Also they are very quick getting back to you if you email a question to support. Your off to a good start. You should build some tabs at the top so you can start creating categories of info for your site. I made an outline on paper of what I wanted my site to include and then built it using the outline as a guide. It worked for me. Having a plan also helped me to choose a template that made sense to what I wanted 4plates2table to look like too. Hope this helps and thanks for taking a look at my site.
One last thing - I think subscribers get confused that when they click subscribe on the blog - they have to then go into their email to confirm the email from wordpress. Just thought I'd mention it. Not sure if anyone else is seeing a similar problem... though I would hope people would understand what to do when they open the email.
