your website has the designer’s dates wrong too; Winslow’s last year was 1953, not 1954 Make this correction Please.

Wish I could help. No skills.
My BF is an engineer but hydrallics not computer.
Someone will step forward, May I suggest you offer free ad on your website in exchange for the service?

Surely more than one or two of these readers have computer or web design skills.

I thought you already had a guy updating the website sometime before. I guess you can always find volunteers at the university in columbus who would be more than interested in knowing glass and working on a live project.

Hi Phani
No website hasn't been updated in over 16 months -
volunteer could be female - we will welcome any / all volunteers.

Needless to say I can't help because when I look at host sites like typepad, they provide a template. You just upload pictures, add some text, and monitor comments. Why does the blog have to involve design when there are templates. You already have the design pretty much set up. Someone needs to be a clearninghouse of sorts but not a designer? We don't need anything fancy like a banner. Perhaps you need to clarify just what, exactly, you are looking for.

Can anyone at Blenko donate some time to help?

On an personal note: We appreciate all of your effort Hillary! You must be busy. It doesn't sound like you are getting out as much.
