Surely someone knows why my new MySpace page wont update? I insert codes into "About Me" and it will tell me 'profile updated' but then nothing has changed.

I have tried mygen.co.uk and that wont work either.

Hey everyone!
I just started blogging last month... does anyone have any tips for my blog? things I can improve on? I don't know how to create templates and I dont like any of the templates on blogspot so I've left the background pretty simple!
Anyways any criticism is good, i will take it all constructively and would love to hear how I can improve my blog

Thanks!!

I personally really like the design of my blog. I'm pretty good at HTML and love web design so I found it a lot of fun.

For anyone wanting to have their first dabble in html and css look up HTML for kids on google. It may seem strange but the intructions are clear and simple. When I first started I was all self taught from this website http://www.lissaexplains.com/

I found out it is because I have the new 2.0 profile...how can you convert back to 1.0 version? Somebody, anybody...

totally agree with above. wordpress is great, loads of option to customise and the community forum is really helpful if your having problems with code.
its a little more complicated to set up and install but there are loads of tutorials online to help.

can anyone suggest a way to add music to your blog ?

there are so many out there

i've seen ones with a playlist and they start playing right away when you enter the page, but they can sometimes be slow to load. is there also a way to have separate songs on your blog.. like you might want to post a new song right in the post, which don't load automatically. and you can just play it on the blog instead of downloading.
