First things first... What's a blog?

From Wikipedia:

A weblog, which is usually shortened to blog, is a type of website where entries are made (such as in a journal or diary), displayed in a reverse chronological order.

Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. Most blogs are primarily textual although many focus on photograph (photoblog), videos (vlog), or audio (podcasting).

The word blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Now that you know what a blog is... Did you know about one of TCC's other sections - Community Blogs?

As you can see, we have several members who have been blogging for some time! Some members have used their blog to chronicle their collection updates while others have simply chosen to blog about everyday life. Either way, they provide great examples of what this section of the site can provide.

So, are you ready to become a TCC Blogger? If so, simply go to My Controls (link at top) and then use the options in the Community Blog section of the left-hand-side menu to create and maintain your blog.

Or, maybe you'd prefer to simply read what other members are blogging about? That's fine. I'm sure they'd be glad to hear your thoughts on their entries, so feel free to add comments to their blogs.

Cool! cool.gif

Now, here's the next tip... When you add a new entry, it's a Draft entry by default which means that only you can see it. In order to make it visible to all of us, you need to click the "Entry Options" button and then the "Publish" button. wink.gif

The admin panel says that your blog has no entries at this point - draft or published.

I just wish blog entries/post got create as a "Post" - I like blogs!
ffman
If possible, I'd like it where it would be possible to view all new blog updates altogether, and not just per member. For example, a link like the one for viewing new posts - only where it shows the latest blog updates. I am making any sense at all with this? laugh.gif
