The Young Writers Society is now very proud to announce that users will now be able to create their own blog, if they so desire, through this forum. First of all, a blog is an online journal in which you can allow, or not allow, other people to not only view your journal but also leave comments on stuff that you have written. In addition to blogs being a journal, they are also used for everything ranging from political opinion columns to a way to showcase your writing. In short, a blog is whatever you want it to be. It is your personal webpage that you can easily update.

The blogs at YWS are not dumbed down or stripped of features in any way; they are fully functional. Some of the features include, though are not limited to:

- Calendar
- Shoutbox
- Trackback
- Three templates
- About Me section
- Picture uploading function
- MUCH, MUCH MORE

To create your own blog, merely go to the board navigation menu (viewable on the homepage and on the forum index) and click "Edit/Create My Blog." To view others blogs, listed in most recently updated order, just go to "All Blogs." Once your blog is created, you can view it by clicking "My Blog." There is also a link to your blog in your profile and on every post you make.

HAHAHA THAT'S AWESOME!!! Great job, Nate! I love you! Er.. maybe not. :P How about, "I'd hug you but I don't wanna get some monkey virus." That sounds good. :wink:

I can't get the blog to work! I am so mad! but I know it's because of my own computer, no doubt...because it said 'document contains no data.' But when we set up our home computer, it'll be working again.
when there's nowhere to go, it's time to grow up.

Every now and then, I get something like that too. Just try clicking until it works, or try clearing out the browser's cache.

Suh-weet, I have a blog. Another one.

Granted, I can customize it with HTML and still can't find where I'm supposed to put in an entry... I'm such a dork...

EDIT: Oh, I found it! Joy to me. I AM smart after all. =)
I'm not even angry... I'm being so sincere right now.

I don't really like blogs. But I'll probably use it once in a while to rant. But I don't like them. Hardly at all.
YWS gives me carpal tunnel.

A lot of you may have noticed that the time was always about three hours off whenever you made a new entry to your blog. I just fixed it so that all blog entries should from now on show the correct time that they were posted at.

BTW, I'm glad everyone likes this new addition! Everyone's blogs are looking really nice... makes mine look pathetic :)
