I may not have posted this week, but I have been busy getting things ready. I have started adding to two of the pages: Resources and Tutorials. These pages are by no means finished and are a work in progress.
In addition, I have been attempting to help the search engine spiders (I really don't have much of a clue what these are, but I read about them a lot!) find the blog and hence the lost cousin names. My search engine optimisation techniques are not advanced, but I do know that providing "backlinks" is essential - basically the more I can promote the blog on other sites, with a link to it, the more the great search engine gods love it. So, I have been busily adding the blog name and link on various site, like Hubpages, to get help it get a lift.
Finally, I have been looking into the best way to add a message board or forum to Blogger; My head is likely to explode with an information overload, but in the event I manage to put it all back together, I should have something in place before the end of September. It will, of course, be free to use.
I am relying on you all to put forward your own lost cousin names in order that we can get this cousin hunt underway!
