I tried again to start a new blog, and am having multiple problems. My newest problem is that TP will not accept me on my sight domain, telling me that my domain (walterman9999) is taken. I wish to publish my travels on this site; but it is to complicated for me to do so. Please somebody assist me so I do not have to publish on another travel site.

You already have a blog at the walterman9999 subdomain, so you can't start a new one with that same subdomain.

You currently have four blogs, three of which have one post ("blog entry"), and walterman9999 which has two posts.

That makes me think there might be an issue with terminology. That is, what you call a "blog" might be what we call a "blog entry" / "blog post"? On travellerspoint, a "blog" is a dedicated website, where you can write about a single subject, or many different subjects, as you desire. Some people like to run multiple blogs, one for each subject that they write about, but the site was basically set up with the idea that everyone would run a single blog, and write everything on there.

So maybe, what you want to do, is to just start a new "blog entry" / new "blog post" on your existing blog, and you don't know how to get there / how to do that?

Probably the easiest way is to go to your blog, and then in the top right (in the black bar) click on "Add a new entry" (or if you aren't logged in yet, click on "Login", not on "Start a travel blog", and then after logging in, click on "Add a new entry").
When you're on the forum, click on "YOUR BLOGS" at the top of the page, and then on "New Entry" next to the blog with the name "Spoorweg Museum, Utrecht, Nederland". (As you also have a blog post with that title, you might also want to change you blog title to something like "Walter's travels"; you can do that by clicking on "Settings" on that YOUR BLOGS page.

Walter just did that in order to start this thread. :) He's asking how to start a new blog (entry?), not how to start a new forum thread.

OK, thank you. So I'd understand it wrong, sorry.

Thanks, I did my new blog on Gent Village. I do not know how to add my photos to support the new blog.

I highly recommend reading this article I wrote a while back because it explains how to format your entries, add photos, etc.

Hope it helps.
