Hi there,

I use WordPress

http://wordpress.org/about/requirements/

It's free, and has minimal system requirements. Depends on who your host is, quite a few out there already have it installed (or at least the tools you need for it.)

I think you can also include a Blogger or similar blog on your website, but I haven't experimented with that (so the browser would still be pointing at tolkienbooks.net, but the blog content would be coming from blogger.com)

Hope this helps...

Hey Beren,

I don't know if I just haven't paid close attention or not, but I like the fadeshow on your homepage TolkienLibrary.com.

It seemed a wee bit fast to me (I like reading the snippets without having to roll over with the mouse) but it's still really nice. Have to hire you to spruce up TCG a bit.

I turned on the Tolkien Online tab in the Main Menu - it is a full page RSS section, gathering news headlines, etc. Have a blog, website, or other source you want me to track in there?

Unfortunately my HTML to RSS hack for Tolkienbooks.net does not date-stamp Deagol's updates correctly, so they end up at the bottom of the list.

Very nice, my (rather hacky) reader seems to like it much better now. It looks like it displays just fine on TCG.

Do people find this module useful? I like seeing what Deagol and Beren are doing, and could add more pages to the list if it seems worthwhile.

Hey Guys,

my intent was to encourage new visitors to speak up a bit, so the February contest is one entry per person (nothing against Beren, who would otherwise have about a 50% chance of winning the buttons.) Please don't stop posting though!

Sounds like the buttons are popular enough to be a repeat mathom for a future drawing (or swapping, or as thank yous to those who support the site a lot.) I have extras...
