Users must register at this site and you must have a valid email address to do so. You can comment right away but there is a three day waiting period to post diaries. One of the features of the new blog is that anyone can register and write your own articles, as diaries, to the blog. Use this, for example, to tell us what is happening in your part of the state.
Another nice feature is the "scoop" comments. This means you can respond to someone's comment directly and your comment will appear under the first one instead of down the comment list. This enables much easier following of discussion threads. You can also insert pictures and links in your comments and diaries (using html code). Come on over and join us as we test drive the new place.
