Re: some recent comments
1/"More pictures would be great, but put them in comments, not the front page."
-- I don't think this is possible.I think photos have to be posted by facilitators and have to go as a main topic (but I might be wrong: will explore some day). I post photos to www.flickr.com first, then to the blog. Others might like to try, see if it works for you.
2/ "A new comment alert would be ideal."
-- again, I don't think this is possible, but do explore the "blogger.com" site, you may find a way and can then tell everyone else
3/ There are bound to be ways of making this site better/more useful-- or even perhaps a better blog provider: if you have ideas/solutuions, post them please
