Fiver's Honeycomb Blog System!

What are Blogs?: ShowHide
Dear users of Fiver's Honeycomb: I don't know how many of you are aware of this, but you can create a fully-functional blog within the boundaries of the forum itself. This is a neat and handy little tool to have, because you can customize its privacy settings as well as to moderate the comments that are posted on your entries (something that can be very handy if you are planning to post stuff on the sentimental and/or personal side of things). The blog system also allows you to use the same codes that you'd encounter on a normal forum post, but it has some advantages of its very own (like the use of categories and tags) to make the experience different from your usual posting affairs. 

Now, since the blog system doesn't have a news-feed, people won't actually receive immediate updates on your posting... but here's where the forum comes in handy! You see... the idea behind this very post wasn't only to get you to know the feature, but also to create some sort of directory in which we could organize all the different blogs as well as to share updates on them. In other words: have you posted something in yours? Come and tell us! Need advice customizing it? You are in the right place! Will you conquer the world, Claws? How dare you doubting!


How do I use them?: ShowHide
Ok, ok... enough chatter. This is how you create your very own, personal blog:

First off, go to Preferences (at the top of the board) and click on update profile. You will be presented with a screen that looks like this:



Now, click in where it says My Blog and go to next screen, that should look an awful lot like this:



Here you can choose a name as well as to add a description to your journal (and write a bit about yourself... if you feel like it). See all the privacy options at the button? Choose whichever suits your needs better, but don't worry... you can edit all of this at any time.

Once you are satisfied with your blog, click on save changes and it will be created! Easy, isn't it?

Your blog is almost ready now! But wait... where do I choose to have categories? Well, that's easy (although, probably the only step on this that's not as intuitive as it could be). To accomplish that goal, you simply need to click on change blog settings and scroll to the bottom of the thing, where you will find this:



Now that you are all set, click on post a new blog entry and let the brainstorm begin!

I suppose I haven't explored the blog feature at all (nor has anyone else, it seems). I could give it a try, once I figure out what I'm supposed to put in it :p The problem, though, is that I feel since updates to the blog aren't as public as forum posts, not very many people will actually take the time to read it. I know that's the purpose of this topic, but advertising your blog here also seems a bit unusual to me. We'll see how it goes.

Actually, there were a few blogs on here even before this very post went up (and Crackers created one after I have posted this) but I see your point.

Well, I don't know if this will actually help you stir your decision, but I'm looking a few of these blogs VERY closely, waiting for updates. If you actually go ahead and post something, I'll gladly read it. I'm always reading blogs anyway :)

Hey, if you could add my blog to the directory that would be greatly appreciated. :)

Haha, I'm actually reading the entry at the moment (because Darkling was quicker on the draw than I when it came to editing the first post xD).

Hehe, I have another entry up. xD This is going to rapidly turn into just a notification thread, methinks.

Ok, started my blog. Couldn't think of anything to write for the moment... For now, you can just link it in the OP

Really sorry for the double post, but I updated my blog with a one-shot I wrote yesterday.
