I've just discovered another cool Web 2.0 service, outside.in, that uses ZIP code tags for 'neighborhood' social bookmarking. If you enter in the zip code 59047 on their site, you'll see Livingston, MT and all of the Livingston Photo Society blog entries. Here, give it a try, I did all the 'work' for you. So, to contribute further, simply add the ZIP code for wherever it is that you are posting from as a Label in the 'Create Post' window in blogger and it'll link your posts to both your location and 59047...pretty cool.

1. visit blogger.com
2. log in to "old blogger" with your current user/pass info
3. it'll show you your dashboard with our blog, telling you it's been switched
4. it asks you if you want to upgrade your account
5. select this option and follow the steps...creating Google account
6. when you have confirmed the account, you'll now want to log in using "new blogger"
Hope that helps. If anyone has questions or would like to contribute info for those switching over, please do so. Thank you!

You will notice the number of contributors on the site has gone from 40+ to only 4. This is because you have to switch your account over before you show up. Also, in the post 'comments' pop-up, you will notice a slight change including text verification. This allows folks who aren't blog members to post comments, while the text verification keeps out bots that post spam comments to phishing sites and whatnot.
I'm also considering switching up the template a bit. This will probably take place over the next week or so. Please add comments to let me know if you like the direction we're going. I want this to be an inclusive process, one where you can have some input into the creation of things here on the blog.
Also, you will notice the URL is now LivingstonPhotoSociety.com. You can use the old address, but http://www.livingstonphotosociety.com is the default...hooray! It's been a long time 'in the making', but we're finally at our own home. To bad we didn't build our own 'house'...
Last, but not least, I apologize to Doolittle for 'trumping' his amazing photo post with this technical garble.
Thanks to all. Sign up for the new blogger and get your photo on...

I like my beard, I love my beard, I am my beard...
I've made the decision to switch to the new version of Blogger.com, which will take place Sunday evening. Signing up for a Google account will be required, but it's free and easy...just like the '60s. I'll update you more later, but we'll have some new features and better tracking abilities internally. I appreciate everyone who has been a part of the LivPhotSoc, those who have given feedback, those who've just come to view the site.

Blogger.com, which has been our host here for the past 1.5 years, has recently undergone some changes. I'm not sure how many of you know, but a new version of Blogger is out and my thoughts are that we should be upgrading. There are a few conditions, so to speak, but I think they will be in the interest of our blog and its members. One of these conditions is that all blog members must have a G-mail/Google account...
So, in the interest of feedback, I'd like to hear what members have to say. If you would like a more 'involved' answer as to what the changes will include, please visit the following: Update Tour
(Update: I noticed that this tour is pretty weak. The new blogger has additional changes not listed in the provided 5-frame tour. I'll post or link to those additional upgrades over the weekend.)
I'd appreciate comments or e-mails regarding the issue...as I might decide not to switch over just yet if it happens to be in your best interest. If I don't get any feedback, I will be updating the site on Jan. 12th.
I've been going back through my shots from Utah in October and wanted to share another pile. Maybe it'll make up for having not posted in 2 months...
