Submitting Posts

After logging in, you can leave comments on a post, but to create a new post, you must first enter your administrative mode by clicking ‘Site Admin’ in the lower right corner of this page. Click ‘Writing Posts’ to access WordPress help.

You can create a new post by entering a title and a description of your subject. Assign your post to category by selecting one listed on the right. You can save your post as a draft if you need to hold it and come back later to finish it later. Your post will not be shown to everyone until you press the ‘publish’ key. Remember to ‘publish’ your post when you are finished.

This site is monitored by a ‘blogmaster’ who will review all posts and decide to leave it. Also, he may choose to change the category, but will take your assignment into consideration.
