How to use the Blog

What on earth is a blog? Part 2

Using the Blog & Gallery- what does it all mean…?

Most of you will know far more than us. We are very new to blogging ourselves so hesitate to start parading even as semi-experts; however our enjoyment of the Parwich blog and now our own  means that our confidence is growing and we are beginning to understand some of the terminology.

However, we are new enough still to be painfully aware of what can totally mystify a newcomer so here follows some short explanations of the words you may meet while trying to make your way through our blog (please correct us gently if we’re wrong) . Lesson three will be more about actually using the blog.

Pages: You are on the Home Page. On the right at the top of the page you will see all the other pages including the Photo Gallery  listed in green with little icons beside – click on any that interest you.

Posts: In blog terminology, articles are called Posts. New posts appear at the top on the left. As soon as a newer one appears, the original one moves down. It then moves to the top of the list of five Recent Posts  on the right.  When another five have come after it,  it ‘disappears’ and can be accessed by clicking the appropriate  Category heading.

Categories: Down the right hand side are listed the topics you might want to follow. All the articles (‘posts’) should be categorised under the appropriate heading, so one doesn’t have to go wading through scores of subjects of no personal  interest at the time.

Tags do much the same thing with a different set of headings. Tags  enable one to pursue a theme regardless of which category all the articles are officially listed under.

Browse: This lists all the tag titles, the more  ‘popular’  the bigger the writing.

Archives: Everything posted each month is listed under that month.
