Replication of most recent e-mail, scroll down to see photo upload

Hi guys,

just want to see what it's like copying and pasting text from the e-mail I've just sent you.

Here we go - ignore the typos for the moment:


Hello there Dad and Phil,

Phil has created an excellent website.

It features two basic components:

(1) a website which displays information and details about the destinations, addresses, flights and contact numbers, etc., for the forthcoming trip to the United States.

To access the start page of the website, go to:

The key concept to remember here is that the site is 'static': i.e. you cannot interact to the information, which can only be changed by the Webmaster - in this case Phil.

(2) a blog.

Casual definition (Wikipedia):

"A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are written in chronological order and commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) and are part of a wider network of social media."
The key concept to remember here is that a blog is 'dynamic': i.e. you can interact with the information irrespective of the Webmaster, at least in the first instance. The Webmaster - in this case Phil - is like the senior editor of a print publication such as the Daily Telegraph, New York Times, Le Monde, etc.

So what information can you interact with?

Well, open up Phil's website at Select the menu item: PHIL COURTS BLOG (sic).

You'll see a number of entries (known as 'posts'). They typically feature a headline, copy text and even a photo (see, for example, the post: "Phil in Central Park, Manhattan")

If you want to comment on a post, simply type your text in the window provided, return to the site, click on the heading 'COMMENTS' beloe the particular post, give it a few seconds to update, and there you'll find your message. Remember, you must register as an official Google user to use this facility.

Phil refers to the above procedure as 'commenting'. This is a useful term, since it distinguishes between the above procedure and actually writing a post yourself. The latter procedure is called: 'posting'.

To post, you have to access a special part of the programme to obtain authorisation. To do this, copy and paste the following URL into your browser window:

A window appears with a taskbar above. It is a simple text editor which allows you to input text, upload photos and display these on the blog page itself.

Hope this helps. Have a go yourself, Dad!

Cheers to the two of you

(and as a final test I'm going to try and copy and paste this message into Phil's blog to see whether that works)

Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking about
making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Cheers
