I admire your tenacity. Congratulations on owning your own site now.
As far as spelling, grammar etc., just have someone edit for you and all will be fine.
Be careful of Copyright infringements though...especially with newspaper/magazine articles etc....and photos.
A good way to keep newspapers happy is to only use the first paragraph or two of an article and them guide the reader to the link in order to read the entire article...and give lots of credit to the author/reporter and the publication.
Also, if you add your own comments to an excerpt from an article, make sure you clearly separate the author's words from your own.......use different fonts etc. I find it looks cleaner when I italicize (sp?) anything that I'm quoting from an article.
Good Luck Tom and keep up the good work
