Blog Name: The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon

Blog URL: http://bossypally.wordpress.com/

Blog Focus: Mostly paladin-oriented, with a touch of general wow/guild adventures.

Character Name: Rykga (paladin), Eloise (mage), Ophelie (baby paladin)

Character Server: Moonrunner (US), Eredar (US) for Ophy

Other Information: I'm REALLY shy. I had made my blog with the intend of keeping it in the shadows forever, but after following other people's blogs for so long, I've been getting the urge to take it to the next level. I am rather nervous about posting here, but word on the street is that you guys don't bite...too much.

On wordpress.com a blogroll is simply a separate page or set of links that you can set up. If you look at my blog as an example, the section titled Blogroll on the right is simply a link category. If you want to create a separate page for your blogroll, just go to pages in the WP dashboard and make a new one (pages on my blog are the "useful guides" "about me" etc.).

Got it! Thank you! Getting past the wordpress interface is my challenge. There are just too many buttons!

I had always wondered how people made separate pages on their blog. Now that you mention it though, the "pages" button is rather obvious. I wonder why I never noticed it before. I bet you that by the time I have this whole wordpress thing figured out, they'll change their interface.

One suggestion: A lot of bloggers out there use the WP theme you're using, so it might help you stand out if you picked one that at least let you use a custom header. Custom headers are pro. :)

I have considered a good header and even tried designing one....and thats when I almost threw my laptop out the window. But now that I've decided to stop hiding my blog, I'll try to convince a graphically talented guildie to give me a hand. I'm not too ashamed of resorting to MS Paint for editing the screenshots in my posts, but if I was to have a header, I'd like something of slightly better quality. (This thread is making me realize more and more how lacking in computer knowledge I am! I have so much learning to do!)

If you like my header (note I have NO graphic design experience, but I did make the header for my blog), I would consider making a similar one for you if you provide me a good quality screenshot or image.

Thank you for the offer :) I managed to count to ten slowly and find some free imaging softwear...My banner is nowhere as nice as yours, but for a first try I think it's presentable. It was actually kind of fun! Now I'm even debating getting some private hosting so I can learn to play with the CCS since all the standard WP ones are really boring. Whatever did I get myself into?

Thanks again for all your help, I really appreciate it.

New banner looks great! (Although the Paladin in the picture looks like she's naked, o.O)

Also, if you want a better tool for banner-design, you can download a 30-day free trial of Adobe Indesign CS4. It's more complicated to use but ultimately you can do much more with it.
