Sorry to add more to the above information – I didn’t want to create two blogs with the same user name (i.e. add a blog to the monthlies blog)as it was important that each blog show the username as separate entities where it says ‘posted by’ in the posts.
And it’s me again! I have solved the problem … wasn’t logging out of one blog before trying to get into the other. Also I have deleted the shortcuts on my desktop – whichever one I clicked brought up the same blog. Phew – minor heart attack avoided and now I can get to work!
