Are you feeling clueless about what a blog is and how to set one up to become part of the Island Weekly blogging project group? I’ve made a video for you.
Set up your blog here: www.posterous.com or here: www.blogger.com.
If you’d like to see what a Posterous blog looks like, have a look at mine: http://annehodgson.posterous.com. With Posterous, you don’t even have to set up your blog. Just post an email to email@example.com. The subject line (Betreffzeile) will be the title, and the text will be your post. After you have sent off your first email you will get an email from Posterus asking you to “claim the site”. Follow the link and give your blog a name. Posterous asks you to use your name, but instead you can use any name, so instead of “annehodgson” just give your blog an imaginary, imaginative name.
After your first post and claiming your blog, you always post to Posterous by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. That automatically posts to your own blog, and you get a confirmation email with the link. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!
“EFL” stands for “English as a foreign language”. I’d be especially pleased if people who are working on their English would join our group.
