AnyONE have a how-to-blog guide?

I would really like to commit to writing this blog because I think I could do a pretty decent job. But I am having a hard time, because I don't know how to do this. Blogs are big news right now but good luck finding a webiste that tells you how to do it. I don't know how to make a list of lnks on my sidebar. I don't know how to post mp3's, which is something I want to do very bad. I can't even figure out how to get people to read it. If somehow you came upon this randomly I could use any help or advice on this stuff at all.

Until I figure this stuff out, I probably won't post too much. But I am going to do this because I can do a good job.

Suck it, dolphin!

I read Little Altars Everywhere in high school, and I begrudgingly liked it. Kind of a lot actually. I thought that it had heart and although I was expecting that aspect of the book to be cheesy it came arcoss quite honest, I thought. So when the time came around to read another book for that class, naturally I decided I would read the sequel The Divine Secrets of tha Ya Ya Sisterhood.
My friend Kyle was in this class with me at the time. I forget the title of the class, but it was something like Modern Literature. I can't remember for the life of me. This is the class in which my friend Kyle found his love for Kurt Vonnegut which will last his entire life, I'm sure. But anyways, we were going to Kyle's apartment one day when we should have been in class and we noticed on e of neighbors had been evicted and when the movers or whoever threw all their shit out left, we had our chance to have whatever we wanted. And of course, we were not above this. This was like fucking Christmas to us. We certainly grabbed our share of unusable crap, and amongst the garbage was, lo and behold, The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, on Audio Cassette no less! Hey, good news, I don't even have to read the book. I can just listen to it! So listen to it I did, one night as I cleaned my room. This was the first time I was bothering with homework and not actually reading the book. My experience was so-so. I felt that because I was doing other things at the time I couldn't pay close enough attention to the story. And I think my teacher knew that I didn't pay close attention by the way my book report went. Good thing Ms. Bird was so lenient. And I loved her for it.

Anyways I got the name for my blog frome here. And I provided a related story. That might be the way this blog goes. I hope you read it and enjoy it.
