First, welcome to all the new contributors. Second, some quick instructions. You can update your profile or post by scrolling down to the Blogger logo on the right, just below the archive list. Click on the logo and that will take you to the main Blogger page. Log into Blogger with the username and password that you set up when you responded to the invitation. That will take you to the Dashboard. You will see a link to edit your profile. Realize that whatever you fill in on your profile will be available to the world. If you click on mine, you can see some of what you can fill in.

To contribute, just click on the name of this blog and the next screen will have links to edit, create, etc. Remember to publish when you are done typing. If you just close the window, whatever you typed will go bye-bye. You will also be able to go back and edit or even delete your own posts (but not what other people post). You can comment on any post just by clicking on the "n comments" ("n" will be some number; right now all but one are "0") at the bottom of any post, then "Post a Comment". You can either log on and your comment will be identified as posted by you or you can post anonymously.

That will get you started, but there is a lot more available; feel free to poke around or ask me. If you create your own blog (anyone with an account can do that for free), let me know and I will link to it.

Enjoy! This idea works better if someone other than me is doing the talking, so don't be afraid to post and comment on other people's posts. You can comment on your own posts if you like, but other people are likely to think that you are weird.

Back to work. Thanks to all who have accepted the invitations so far.
