Adding image

If you have an image hosted somewhere online, it is SO easy to add it to your blog - if only you know the URL for its location. For example, i've got an image of a mindmap at a local page, at this location: http://home19.inet.tele.dk/susnyrop/mindmap.gif

well to make it appear right here in my blog; I create a new posting from the template HTML editor where I type a code string containing the image URL type < src="..."> (leave out the spaces in the code string)--- et voila!

How to start using Blogger

Blogger is simple to use!

Register at www.blogger.com , find a powerful name for your blog - and start it!

Create one or more posts and have a preview to see what it looks like. The easiest way is using the Compose template, but if you already know some HMTL, you can write in Edit HTML format.

You don't even have to know in details what you wish to publish, because you can let your post stay private, and edit it later before you submit it.

What do Webheads do?

Webheads in Action is a robust online community of language educators and course developers sharing a passion for online communication and learning together. etc etc blah blah

Location: Farum, Denmark - linking to maps online

I've done some research to find the best way to represent my local environment to create our hyperlinked Webheads map. Tomorrow I will make a more serious attempt to share these links, so the page can be ready for our Sunday Webheads session. At least I did make a new posting - all I have is to open and edit it :-)

Mapping our environment - a collaborative blogging project

In an online community, people are connected from all over the world. As we do not meet face to face, we con help making a better image of each other by sharing some local information about geography: where we live, what the landscape or city looks like, how you can get to where we live, etc.

On the WWW, you will find today many useful resources to help locating our online presence. In the online community English for Webheads, participants join from all over the world. Some days ago Vance Stevens suggested a project trying to create a pool of informations about our surroundings. At the same time, this will be another reason for learning how to create your personal homepage, such as this blog.

I'll post this as a consent to contribute to this project, and in the meantime, I will go to the search engine Google and find some useful links that can show you where I live; in Farum, Denmark, Europe.
