How to blog

So here you are, a blogger!  Now what?  To create a blog entry you need to be logged in. On the right there is a link that says "Already a member?  Sign in.  Click and follow instructions.

Once signed in you'll see your email address at the top and "New post" right next to it.  If you click it you'll see a window just like this one: (click the image for a bigger view)
In fact this is the window of me making this post entry.  You'll be able to preview the page, save it future use, or publish it using one of the buttons at the bottom.

You can also import pictures as I've done in this little tutorial by clicking the little icon in the bar above this text that looks like a picture frame next to Link.  

Experiment with the various formatting choices in the bar at the top.  If you let your cursor linger on an icon it will tell you what it does. For example:

Just follow the directions which are pretty self explanatory.

Once you publish the post you can edit or remove it should you change your mind. Hope this helps and have fun.

Oh, here's a neighbor's back yard.  I was on my way to my boat (which is fine) when I snapped this. No one knows who owns the boat!  Still, we love living here.
