TO BECOME A NETWURKS.WORDPRESS USER
At the top of the left hand column , click on <Log in>
This will take you to a WordPress.com page. Below the box that has Username, Password and Login, click on <Get a free WordPress account>
Fill in Username. You can make one word of your name (eg sharonpeoples), so we know who we are communicating with. If you choose to use a special, blog name (eg ‘artscaper’ – Michael Adams), make sure you fill out your actual name on the lines provided.
Fill in Password, Confirm, Email boxes, tick the Legal flotsam, and click (you can go back later and do things like adding a ‘gravatar’ photo of yourself, if you like).
Then it should state that it will send an email to your email address (it happened almost instantly at the workshop). When the email comes to your account, just click on the address they provide. There, log in with your Username and Password.
This will actually allow you to do no more than comment on posts, because, initially, you are automatically signed up as a ‘Contributor ‘. Once they note that you have signed up, an Administrator (Sharon or Michael) will change your status to ‘Author’ – and you can start posting.
– add thoughts to posts of pictures and pictures to posts of thoughts
– assign categories to posts
– insert important links into posts
In the right-hand column there is a Search box, a list of Categories and a ‘Category Cloud‘.
On the left-hand side, there are Link lists – ‘nets institutions’ (the three ‘Nets’ Project universities), ‘blog roll’ (with other netwurkers’ sites) and ‘blog links’ (to sites linked in the posts).
Perhaps you already have your own blog or web-site or you know the web address of any site that users can go to get an idea of you, your work and interests. Please let us know so we can provide a link to it in the blog roll.
