  1. I have a question, I pressed edit profile and changed my picture for my profile but it’s still the one it was before…when will it change or can I just not see it?

  2. There isn’t an automatic way of doing it here at The one on this blog is created and updated by hand. The main work is in getting caught up to your current posts, after that it isn’t too much work to just add each one as you do them.

  3. Hello Time~Thief, thank you for including my site in your post I also got your track back
    I will be updating my post with a insert of your site post so you will be getting a track back from me also. :)
