NavBar and RSS

From what I've seen so far, the RSS feed is basically a web page that updates at a certian time interval. So, I've subscribed to Caitlin's blogspot RSS feed. I have a bookmark in my favorites for her RSS feed, and when I click on it, it takes me to a webpage that lists her blog (but is not actually her blog). I have the feed set up to update once a day with the option of updating more often. There might be more features, but I havent played with it enough yet.

The NavBar is the very top of the blog. It is not working for me. I can sign in, and update my blog, but it messes up and will only show in the very top 1/2 inch of the screen (which is the NavBar - where the blogger logo is). I have no idea why it does that and after looking on the blogger help pages, I think I'm going to ask the question to the support team. Has anyone elses had problems with the 1/2 inch blue logo thing at the top of your blog?

I also havent seen a better way to network with this blog. I'll keep trying it out and keep you guys updated!

Slowly learning a little more about how this blog works. There is no subscription like Xanga. You can subscribe to the RSS feed. Which I DLed the new Internet Explorer and the link is in my favorites. So it's basically like clicking on someone's xanga and seeing all their posts (or you can just save the link to their blog). I'm going to try these RSS feeds though. Updates automatically.

I like how when someone leaves me a comment, I get an email and it actually shows the comment.

That's about all I've tried with it so far!

Hopefully Faster

Ok, so I set up a blogspot blog (hopefully you already knew that) because Xanga was a pain to post on. It took forever to post. So I'm going to try this out. Not going to delete Xanga yet though and I probably wont. I've been posting on there more then I've been writing in my journal.
