A Recipe for Stonesoup

I've finished the first draft of my dummies' guide to stonesoup. It's very basic and also quickly put together (disclaim, disclaim :-). It contains:

  1. About Stonesoup
  2. Posting Your First Entry
  3. Editing and Deleting Entries
  4. Adding Pictures to Your Blog
  5. Changing the Look of Your Blog
  6. Getting More Readers (or How to be a Traffic Ho)
  7. Changing Your Add/Edit Entry Form
  8. Adding Links to Your Homepage
  9. About Me, 100 Things, and Other Extra Pages
  10. Configuring It (or Comments, Trackbacks, & Other Bits)
  11. Backups and Exports

I tried to upload it last night, but it was 3 meg (too many screenshots) and the site barfed, so I took out nearly all the pictures. Here's the text-mostly version:

Edited to say that Carla's successfully prodded me to replace the Word version with a PDF, which will in theory keep its formatting better.

If you want the screenshot-ful version, email me.

If you have comments, questions, suggestions, or editing notes, comment here or email me.

just thought I'd mention that this is *really* helpful and has allowed me to do things with html that I had never done before. Thank you!
