Anybody who feels capable of writing quality material and would like to have their own blog on here, please comment to that effect.

what's the difference between a blog and forum posting?

Basically it's your personal area, though you can optionally allow people to comment on your blog postings.

If we can get a few good quality blogs running, I'd like to link to them from the front page and possibly the top menu.

Blogs are Blogs
Posts are Posts

There is a growing number of folks posting "blogs" that are not Blogs.
Like people who invest in a SIPP without knowing what a SIPP actually is.

A Blog is a personal "Web Log" of events.

Just thought I'd mention that.

To avoid me having to manually authorise Blog requests, in the short term, all registered users may create a Blog. However, please additionally request "Blogger" status as already described and copied here:


Go to My Account then Apply for role tab. Note, your application has to be approved (the facility won't normally be withheld.) Chase me up (or one of the other Site Editors) if you don't get it improved inside of a day.

Once approved, your Blog will appear on the menu in the left side-bar.


As a matter, I will be moving Diver's important posts in to his Blog view so as to simplify finding the posts. The same can be done for anybody else.


Anybody else wanting a "blog"
