Get Involved In The Arty Blog Community

Since I am *not* the only person with keys to the blog, it would be extremely helpful if other members would post here. Thoughts, news items, anything at all related, however vaguely, to the Arts, handycrafts, politics, Howard Dean - ideally some sort of synthesis of two or more of these, but not necessarily. Also, if anybody has time on their hands and just wants to update us on their doings, that would be great too.

I simply can't maintain this blog alone. Besides, it's supposed to be a community. Please, friends, get involved in this community, or it will wither and die.

Posting Hints
To post a main blog entry, click the orenge "Blogger" button in the uppermost left corner of any of the blog's pages. This takes you to your "dashboard," a control pannel displaying (as hyperlinks) the titles of the blogs you own/participate in. Click the green plus sign marked "Create New Post. You'll be taken to the post entry page.

Please make use of the "Title" field near the top of the post entry page. Adding a title makes identifying the post easier for everyone.

If you want to include a pic in your post, look for the "Add Image" function on the post entry page. This will allow you to upload or enter a link to an image resource already on the web. You must know the exact URL (web address) of the image to link to it.

Proofread your post for grammatical errors, omitted words, and the llike. It's probably best to compose long posts in a word processor, where you have the benefit of spellcheck and grammarcheck. You can also use the spellcheck function on the post entry page.

The length of the post is *not* important. Your participation is what's important. A community is only as strong as its members. We're Deaniacs. We're strong; we can do anything!

Censoring the Stones?
http://today.reuters.com/news/newsArticle.aspx?type=musicNews&storyID=2006-02-07T205701Z_01_N069079_RTRIDST_0_MUSIC-MEDIA-SUPERBOWL-STONES-DC.XML&archived=False

I donno. You book the Stones, you deal with their material. *shrug*

Um, Catreona, I have NO IDEAR how to post a thread here.

How do I get TO the "post entry page" and what do I click on to begin creating a new thread post?

Catreona said...

Ooh, sorry, listener. Trust empty headed Cat to leave out the most important part!

There's a big orenge block in the uppermost left corner of the blog that says "Blogger." Click that. You'll be taken to your "dashboard," a control pannel type of thing. On that, you'll see the blogs you can post to, at the moment only this one though, between you and me, that's gonna change soon. More on that in a moment.

Click the green plus sign marked "Create New Post" next to the blog's title. You'll be taken to the post creation page, and you'll be in business.

Now, I've been working on The Halls of Eru, consulting the help system, I'm in the process of formatting it as an online book. We can use it, at least temporarily, to house our Iraq War Project. I'll need to go through the rigamarol of making it a colaborative blog and sending invites... But, not tonight. Soon, though. Then, you'll be able to post directly there too.

♥ THANK-YOU, CATREONA~! ♥

I'll try to make use of it soon.

I saw a quote about art today that
I really should have written down
and have been attempting to track down since.

Soon, I hope! :-)

Hi listener,

I hate it when that happens! I do it too, all the time. I see or hear something, and think I'll remember or easily find it again. Seldom works.

Catreona said...

BTW I'm having some problems with the blog formatting. I'd like to have *both* the "e-mail this item" feature *and* the "quick edit" feature. The one has a little mailing envelope and the other a little pencil. But, instead, there are two envelopes. Sorry about that. I'm on it, and hope to have the problem straightened out soon.

I hadn't realized, but Time Warner's in serious trouble.

Like, get over it and go forward. Sheesh!

Catreona said...

Let me know if this looks worth putting on our links list. Presumably it updates regularly.

I like it!

Dear Cat ~

None of us wants you stressing over the site.

Just give to it what you can and we'll be satisfied!

If folks want more than that,
they can chip in.

[BTW, I think I can obtain the Robert Lentz quote tomorrow. I'm pretty sure that at 50 a woman's estradiol begins to drop off, which would explain foggy-headedness and beong forgetful. Of course, MINE has been dropping off since I was about 21 years old. :lol: !!!]

Catreona said...

LOL listener. It's a funny thing, I've always been blessed with an excellent memory, or at least long term memory. But, I've been walking into rooms and forgetting what I came for since early twenties at least. I don't really think it's anything to worry about.

Catreona said...

OK, I've added Monsters and Critics to our link list.

Still don't understand the e-mail vs. quick edit thingy. It seems like, if the e-mail doohicky is activated, then the code that is purported to control the quick edit actually controls the e-mail. I don't understand. *sigh* I'll look it up on the help system at some point...

Catreona said...

For some reason, setting e-mail to no and quick edit to yes results in neither e-mail nor quick edit being shown. Whatever.
