A Quick Blurb

The thing is so versatile that you may do anything.

I say as a start that - FastBlogIt is the best, fastest & most versatile way for individuals to express themselves on the Internet!

I gave you the group "my favorite things" spelled exactly that way because it requires all lower case to name a group. The password is "FaVoRiTeS" which is exactly that spelled that way without spaces. You can do just about anything for a password.   The group defines the topic area, i.e. anyone who has the password can "police" the users in that area.  As long as you have the password, though, you can change your identity (authorship) as you want.  I have been playing with a lot of groups & a lot of identities & find that it is a bit of a pain to switch around. If you want to keep a nice journal or a regular log, I suggest operating from a group like, say mickey w/Mickey as an author & your own password. That will make it easy for you to have a base of discussion. You can participate in any group that is not private without a password by adding comments.  If it is passworded like "my favorite things" - then somebody needs to give that password to you.  Your new items are created in the group you are currently signed in to & appear in the common river (the living stream) unless you make them private.
For now you can create your own group or use one of the "open" groups like politics or recipes or the ads (or make your own banner add) group. If you want something to be private to the group you are in make sure you check the private box before you submit or add it.  Comments depend upon the privacy of the item for privacy.  If the item is private then the comments are private (except a little bug we are currently working out in the new feature called news). The tag feature is to mark something for your own later retrieval.  When the common stream of non-private items gets going by lots of users, it should go bye pretty fast - remember names (tags) you use. You can have as many as you want to type in. If you know somebody else who might want to play invite them to do so.  Anybody can write an item without even having to sign in, but eventually that may have to change because of spammers.  To see a list of groups type in .groups in the search tag box in the upper left-hand column.  Enjoy...

This was sanitized from an email I sent to a friend. I'm still looking for a good blurb to email to friends.
