Still working on the 'technicalities' of blogging

Hi. The last blog I did - without the help of my daughter who knows a lot more about blogging than I do - seems to be somewhere in limbo. If getting this short blog up and running works, then I feel I might have learned something, and be on my way to serious blogging and making contacts. So here's hoping. (Unfortunately my 'blog teacher' - my daughter Tonya - has gone back to Sweden.)

Finding my way.

As a beginner in blogging I'm having quite a lot of trouble. First, instead of a new entry into my 'Ambassador's notes' blog, I seemed to create a completely new named blog. But that's disappeared, thank goodness. But the entry I just wrote has also disappeared, as I must have done the wrong thing. Well, better luck next time! When things start going better I will start looking into other blogs with possible link ups, and get my blogging more known about.

Much yet to learn about blogging

Well, it's good to have a link to my web site on this blog, but as yet I don't feel that confident in 'spreading the word' and finding out how many person's might be interested in my 'Syai' project. (Plus that I've had a bad cold to get over just recently.) When I began my web site, one of the main purposes I had in mind was to see how much interest might be engendered in the manuscript I have written about the Syai on their planet Tuurioe, with the prospect that this might lead to suggestions on how best to submit it for publication. I am also writing what is more like a 'romance' or adventure novel which would probably be classed as a fantasy novel, about events that took place in Syai history seventeen centuries ago, when their society was more like the society of the early modern period (or late medieval) on our planet. Anyway, this might give the reader here a better idea of the intentions behind this blog. However, I am not shy about commenting on what's going on in our world today, but usually I will be doing this against a background of how it appears to me that this world's civilization will have to change in a 'Syai' direction, if it is to survive the next 100 to 500 years.
