Setting up the blog was harder than I thought. Working with friends helped immensely by making the roadblocks manageable and even fun to get through. I was confused with the email addresses, I had a yahoo account but had to set up a google account and then it asked for my yahoo account. I still don't understand why it did all of that but it works now and I am happy :).
Setting up and creating my avatar was fun! The only trouble we had was downloading it into our blog, we had to call for help and found that we needed to download as a picture instead of an html java script.
