As I am attempting to set up my blog I just can’t seem to figure out how to post a photo!! I successfully added an image for my header but despite reading the getting started info, I don’t see where the Upload option appears on the write a post page. Could you give me any insight?? Thank you so much. I enjoy your blog very much- I hope I can get mine figured out.
