These posts need to be in a blog and shared with those who are interested in this person.

Create a blog, Flora and William

Hi Margaret. Thanks for your comment. Obviously I'm not as hi-tech as you as I don't know how to do this blog thing. Will have to find out how to do it.
Added by Flora on 09 December 2008
We disagree, we are very much enjoying reading them here Flora. We believe the site is for the people of Cromarty, is it not? Keep them coming.

Margaret - William was born and brought up in Cromarty, so I'm sure there are many people who would be interested to know where and how he is getting on in OZ. As these postings are attached to his picture I can't see where there's a problem.
Added by Hazel Pendle (nee Maclean) on 10 December 2008
There is no problem!

I simply made my suggestion because the postings on this topic already naturally lend themselves to a blog.

A blog would achieve the same purpose, which is to provide information on someone and update it.

A blog can have pictures and it is also interactive in that people can leave comments, ask questions, etc.

I think a blog would give added value to the topic.

That's all I was thinking!

oh boy I hope I haven't upset anyone with this blog thing my computer skills are not up to much but are enough to get me by Nice to see my son has a fan club too ....

Hi Flora
I can see where Margaret is coming from a blog would be better for you, the family and Tipper's many fans. If people started putting, as good and interesting as it is, things like this on the site. I personally would think this could take away from the (CROMARTY IMAGE LIBARY)

The Tipper Fan Club has many members in many differant countries. We are all female and would like our latest update please?

Tipper will be, or should be, creating a blog to satisfy your drooling.

Then you'll not be drooling on the Cromarty Archive website

He's different, doncha know!
Added by Margaret Tong on 17 December 2008
I get the feeling that some people are not wanting to hear how a local lad is doing for himself since graduating which I think is a great pity. Locals or otherwise should be proud of what William has done, I know I am, and that he is promoting the name of Cromarty on the other side of the world.
Added by Flora on 18 December 2008
This thread is now closed. Whilst we are certainly keen to show Croms here along with their achievements, and Flora is quite rightly proud, Margaret and others are also right in saying that using this site as an ongoing diary isn't what it was set up for. Social networking sites are much better for that sort of thing.
