Want to write for the Hedon Blog?
WordPress.com which powers the Hedon Blog, is a powerful publishing tool that allows several people to write and edit Blog articles at the same time.It is also very easy to use – if you can use Word then you will be able to use WordPress!
The Hedon Blog originally aimed to be a GROUP BLOG with local Hedon people and others posting articles and comments about the things that interest them about the town. That aim has never changed!
If you are from the town and reading this and would like to become an occasional correspondent, a regular author and/or help manage the blog ‘behind the scenes’ then please drop off an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have never ‘blogged’ before, then by becoming a Contributor to The Hedon Blog you can find out about this interesting and fascinating hobby first hand – and WordPress will give you the opportunity to set up your own blog!
There are three major roles that ‘would be’ bloggers can play – which one you take up would be determined by how much time you have to regularly write and submit material:
An editor can publish, edit, and delete posts/pages, moderate comments, manage categories, manage tags, manage links and upload files (images, video, audio, polls).
An author can edit, publish and delete their posts only and they can upload files.
A contributor can edit their posts but cannot publish. Once a contributor’s post is approved by an administrator and published, however, it may no longer be edited by the contributor.
If enough people are interested, then we can look at setting up a morning or afternoon meeting to sign people up, get you blogging and find out a little more about news-gathering for the Blog!
