Don’t worry! Blogging is easy – just follow the steps below:
1.) Pick a topic to write about! More on that here
2.) Go to your profile (you can only see it if you are logged in) from the side menu (web) or scroll to the bottom (mobile) or find it through the members page
3.) Under your profile picture click on “blog”
4.) You will see links to posts you have already written (if any)
5.) Click on “New Post”
6.) Type away! Make a title and feel free to use any of the formatting tools and pick a category if you want (or we can do that later)
7.) Don’t forget to Save!
8.) You don’t have to finish it all in one sitting – you can go back to it later from your profile
9.) Use add media if you want to add pictures to your post. Remember, we don’t want any pictures that identify you or your friends – and if you want to use media from the internet – make sure you only use copyright-friendly images! We’re happy to talk to you about that if you want. Also you can read here for more info or use compfight.com or advanced google images search and filter for usage friendly pictures like we do. Otherwise we’re happy to pick a picture for you!
11.) Then we will give you feedback about what you’ve written and let you know if we recommend any changes before we post it!
12.) You don’t have permission to publish – so don’t worry nothing will be posted live until we look through it – feel free to save multiple times until you are ready.
