You need to be a member of CMC Copic Challenge Group (or other alcohol markers) to add comments!

Patricia, my automatically updated itself and there are some new procedures, way to add things, update posts, etc.  It was a little strange at first and I fumbled around trying to find stuff at first but now after quite a few new posts on my blog I don't mind it at all.  It seemed a bit user unfriendly at first but now I am used to it and I really dont mind either way.

I do prefer the new way of being able to access most things, esp the scheduling of posts without having to scroll down - that's a plus

Comment by Patricia St Martin on April 21, 2012 at 1:16pm
