How to Use Our Blog
Let’s start at the beginning. If you are not familiar with blogs we need to define just what one is. The term “blog” is actually short for “weblog” which is an online journal that is regularly updated with entries called “posts.” These posts are the main reason the blog exists and consist of writings, discussions, links, pictures, graphics or other related content listed in reverse-chronological order. Blogs exist because of posts, and the comments, responses and replies generated by the posts.
New to using a Blog? There is an excellent, short, You Tube video from a company called CommonCraft that explains the basics of a blog quite well, “Blogs In Plain English”
To assist our visitors in getting maximum benefit from time spent on our Blog we wanted to take a few moments and explain how things are structured and what you can expect. First and foremost we want to encourage visitors to interact with our posts and the comments left by other visitors. Your comments, questions, and suggestions are key in making our blog more useful to everyone.
