How the blog works
It might be worth explaining a little about how this weblog works. When you come to the blog front page, which you will always be able to access at digi-tales.org.uk/blog you will see all the latest entries, with the most recent at the top of the page. Scroll down the page for previous entries.
On the right hand side of the page, you’ll see a calendar. When any date on that calendar is highlighted, that means there was one or more entry published on that day. Click on the date and the page will display that day’s items.
At the bottom of each entry is a link called “comments”. Click on it, and you will be able to add your comments to that particular entry. Clicking on an entry’s headline takes you to that item’s own page, where it is printed in full with all the comments which have been published. From there, if you want to go back to the main index page, you can click the words “Back to blog” at the top of the page. You might also see the titles of other entries – these simply take you directly to those entries in chronological order.
A word about comments
The main thing which makes blogs different is that it is a conversation between the author and the audience. So the success of the blog will depend on you letting us know what you think about what we have written. Try to keep your comments short and relevant to the blog entry you are commenting on. As you might expect, we won’t publish comments which are abusive or offensive.
One other thing…
I also want to say a word about RSS. You might have seen a little orange rectangle with these letters, but you might not know what it’s about. Put simply, if a site provides an RSS link, it means you can see its entries in a much quicker way than coming to the website. You can, for instance, see an automatically updated list of headlines in your “bookmarks” folder, if you use an internet browser such as Firefox. Or you might use a specific program to browse lots of sites quickly.
