Anyone can view pogblog's Main Page and read all the articles & fables. Just clik more>> at the end of the excerpt.
To COMMENT as of September 28, 2005, just write your Comment in the box and type the tumbled letters into the Comments Verification Box & clik post. This will post an anonymous Comment. Tho of course you can sign your name or handle if you wish in your Comment. (If you want an easy clikkable automatic contact link, then create a Reader Account. Nice but not necessary now) .. ..
pogblog.myblogsite.com .. please link us & give us to your friends ..
(If you already know what you're doing, skip this and go to Create Reader Account or Subscribe to pogblog on upper right of Main Page.)
To Create Reader Account
The simplest thing is to just email email@example.com and we'll set you up with a reader account. Tell us a nickname (e.g. cedral755; iotasiotas; shamanofdroll; chancelucky)you'd like and the year of your birth is helpful, tho not necessary. We'll get you as near what you want as availability will allow. You can always change stuff later.
If YOU want to do it yourself, here's the details:
Anyone can view pogblog's main page and read articles & fables etc, but to post comments, a reader must first Create Reader Account and/or Subscribe FREE.
If you're real beginner at this, you'd be best off to Copy the rest of this & Paste it into a Word Document so you can print it out & follow it step by step!
If you do not have an account, please create one now.
Clik on create one.
Fill in First Name
You must fill in a name here but it may be fake, though in a minute after you've clikked [Signup], you'll get the option of choosing what people can & cannot see. I use a fake name. (For example, Cement Cement for first & last name is ok, but you must make a note now or you’ll forget!!)
Fill in Last Name
You must fill in a name here but it may be (& should be) fake.
URL: is optional. IF you have a website or blog, you may enter your web or blog URL or unique address (pogblog's URL, for instance is http://pogblog.myblogsite.com/blog An URL is a formal unique Internet address.) If you don't have a website or blog, leave it blank.
Fill in Email
You must fill in a real email address that you can check, but it may be a free yahoo account you set up with fake names for web surfing — it doesn't have to be your main email account. You can create a yahoo!mail free account, for instance, that mirrors all the fake names you want to use here, but you would have to go set it up first so you know that yahoo will have the names available.
Leave the Timezone as US/Pacific, or where ever you are. If you are in Australia or France, fix it accordingly. When you comment, this will allow your comment to show what time you posted your comment.
You must clik the little [box] next to I agree to and understand the user agreement. Clikking it puts a little black arrow in it. Myself I never read the agreements which are pages of gobbledegook. You have to agree to them though or you can't proceed. You've probably only agreed that it's ok for aliens to experiment on your first-born child, so so what. Life's too short to read this kind of fine print.
You must clik the [Signup] box or it won't happen. Do check stuff before you clik Signup because that pretty much locks in some stuff.
After you clik Signup, a Blogware page will come up saying:
We have sent a confirmation email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please confirm your signup request by following the instructions included in the email.
Go to your email account
In your email Inbox, you'll see a message from email@example.com with a Subject line saying Signup Confirmation for www.blogware.com
Clik on that message to open it.
In the middle of the text, you'll see a blue line or link.
Clik the blue link.
In about 30 seconds, you will be whisked to your Blogware Control Panel/Address Book/ & My Profile page
It will say that Your account has been confirmed — you are now logged in.
This means you are logged in to the Blogware My Profile page for the last step.
(Decide whether it's OK for people to email you from pogblog. If yes, go down under Account Info & across from that in the Display Staus column, clik the little dropdown & change it from Friends Only to Public. (You can always decide to do this later. SAVE the Welcome to Blogware email you'll get in your email system because it has the link so you can go fuss with your Profile later if you want.)
Clik [Save Changes]
Do NOTHING more now except [LOGOUT] in upper righthand corner of that Blogware My Profile page. Do not put in a new password. You can add lots of stuff later if you want to get into it, but for now you can just log out.
Go back to pogblog.myblogsite.com & on the upper right area where it says Login, type your shiny new username & password (which will look like big black dots)and clik the [Login] box and then you can clik on Comment by any article and proceed!
Congratulations! Well done!
(Remember if you still have questions about how to do this, just email firstname.lastname@example.org. We want this to work for you!)
