This site is an experiment in some ways. It can be used either as a blog – or as I’m trying to set it up – a more community oriented wiki-kind of site where many people can contribute and it’s not just me or one or two others. The more of us the better.
There are a few ways you can get started. The easiest is by commenting on any of the pages. This is OK – but sometimes the comment threads get lost.
Alternatively, and a little more involved (but not too much) is you can create a page for a particular topic. That way you can begin a discussion – and then you and others can add comments or even add subtopics (or pages that would follow from that page.)
The only catch with adding pages is that you have to be added to the site. Not too big a deal – just let me know you’d like to be added, send an email with your name – and I’ll add you on to the USER list. If I add you as editor you can begin to make pages of your own. All that I ask is that you look around and try to keep the site organized. Housekeeping is not my favorite thing to do!
Finally you can post to the blog. As it’s set up now, the blog pages show on the right-side menu. You can either click on a blog title, or if you join the site you can begin your own blog post/thread. To do that, once you join this blog, you go to manage, click on posts and write.
Also, whatever you do don’t forget to hit “publish” when ready.
I’m just figuring this out – so if anyone jumps on and has a better way of doing this please let me know – Emily (firstname.lastname@example.org)
