New Blog

New Blog? Old Blog?

Hi Angels. I have updated the blog to run on the new blogger system. Ah but it looks the same you might say. This is true, the style that Anna designed for us and our template are all the same. However, posting should be faster and pics easier to upload.

We also have a new email address essential for running blogger which I will try to moniter as best I can, so anyone who wants to register as a member who has not given their details to any other Angel, could you send me an email? I will also work on trying to get links up to all of our blogs, websites and pages.
I Need to talk to Anna about that because blogger has templates that are easy to manage but she has a customised version she designed for us.

This does mean that signing in to make a posting has changed ever so slightly so now you need to sign in to

The New Blogger
Name: angelknitslondon@gmail.com
Password: Not changed, same as before (only a few members have this and this will not change at the moment)

However, if you don't know the password to contribute don;t let that stop you! You can email me at either
erssiemajor@yahoo.co.uk OR angelknitslondon@gmail.com
If you wish to contribute to the blog, send your Word Doc of what you wish to say and JPEGs as attachments in an email and I will copy and post up as fast as I can.

We can chat on gmail as well, so perhaps we can have live discussions!
