To commemorate this blog's one-month birthday, albeit a couple of days late, I thought I'd take the time to go through a few things. I know that many of you, like me, are totally new to blogging, and I'd like to make sure everyone knows how this works.
For starters, I'm not the only one making these posts. Most of you know this, but a couple of people have been confused, so I'll explain this first. Anybody listed to the right under "Contributors" is able to make a post in this location. You can tell who wrote it because, at the end of the post, it says who posted it and when.
If you want to be able to put up original posts for other people to comment on -- and I hope you do, because that's kind of the point -- just let me know and I'll set you up with a password. I'd really like for there to be at least one post per day on RtN, but I just don't always have time (or something to say), so feel free to help me. You can post about whatever you want; let's just try to stay away from politics.
Of course, anyone with a computer can comment on posts. If you're a registered contributor, your comment posts immediately. If you're not, your comment comes to me for moderation. It goes online when I approve it.
Some things to keep in mind if you want to post:
- Type comments any way you want, but if you're creating all new posts, let's use capital letters at the beginnings of sentences.
- Take a look at the buttons above the text box where you type your posts. There are a number of buttons up there that are useful: adding photos, making words turn into links like this, etc. Let me know if you need help with any of this stuff.
- If you make a post and then notice that something looks weird or you want to correct something, just log back in and click the little 'Edit Posts' link. Very easy to do.
- If you have any questions, just ask me.
