    Yes. It is me *again*. An endless well of questions.
    Email Hosting. What exactly is this? I currently have my email hosted through MSN. I would want folks to be able to email me from my blog. It APPEARS that my email is in conjuction with my gravatar. The link is selected and it takes them to my Gravatar page, where they can email me. Is there a better way???? I DO want customers to be able to email me with questions. I have seen the email form on other’s sites. Can I do this? What is better?

    The blog I need help with is secondnaturegardenservices.wordpress.com.

    WordPress.com does not provide email hosting for domains. See here > http://en.support.wordpress.com/domains/add-email/

    Yes there is a better way on a blog use a secure contact form. http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact-form/ Posting an email address anywhere online means spam harvesting bots cannot suck up and then return to their programmers who will sell it to multiple spammers.

    RATS! I made mistake above so here we go again:

    Using an contact form, rather than posting an email address anywhere online means spam harvesting bots cannot suck it up and then return to their programmers, who will sell it to multiple spammers.

    ….thanks…and, I could place it on its own Page so readers can find it, right? Or, can I create a link from the About page, which is my static page?
    Also, in visiting my site under construction, I notice that the Blog Page of my site says that the Blog cannot be found or something like that. Why is this?

    re email hosting…I will not fill my mind with what it is, as I cannot utilize it now. Maybe later. Too much else to think about!!!!!

    You deleted the default “Hello World” Post – make a new Post and the error will go away
