Mp96,

 

The reason why you don't have access to your blog is because you have not activated it by following the instructions that was sent to your email address. Please refer to the original email you were sent at the time of registration and follow the instructions.

 

If you cannot find the original email, please contact me.

 

I have also sent you an email on this matter and copied our webmaster to see if there is a way that I can automatically activate the blog or at least resend the activation request.

 

Thanks,

 

Bill

ITGuy,

 

I assume you posted this prior to sending me a private message. However, since we've been talking, I've collected and sent our webmaster Hans all of your information to troubleshoot the problem.

 

I trust we'll be able to get this issue resolved for you. In the meantime, sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.

 

Best wishes,

 

Bill

Can you tell us how to take good pictures of growth following hair transplants? Every time I try to take one it appears all washed out. Yet the ones on this website are all pretty good. What am I doing wrong?

AngleD,

 

The best place to document your progress is by creating a patient website. If you haven't created an account there, just click the link and fill out the fields. You can select your doctor, share your story, add pictures and video. You can even rate your doctor :-). You can then share the link on this forum by creating a new topic. You can follow the instructions for creating a website and posting a link to your website in your forum signature by clicking here.

 

Best wishes,

 

Bill
