Guide to posting to Your View, place for opinion

Your View logo

Here is a guide to using Your View, the place for opinion at YourArlington.com and the site's only blog.

To add your opinions -- usually a column and longer than a simple comment, you must be a registered user. To become one, click here >>

After the publisher has approved your registration, log in with your username and password at the log-in button. Find it on the drop-down menu under Home on the site's main navigation bar, across the top.

Once logged in, go to Your View, in the top navigation bar. Click on Your View to reach the dashboard. Or click the first drop-down option called Write a blog. The dashboard allows you to many things. At the Write a blog drop-down, you may, well, write a blog entry.

If you choose the dashboard, then look for the little pencil in the top navigation bar. Click it to bring up an editing window. Choosing Write a blog brings up the same window.

In either case,

1.) Write a headline where it asks for a blog title.

2.) Write or copy and paste text in the large window below all of the editing symbols. Use PLAIN TEXT, not MS Word.

3.) Option above that window allow you to add an image as well as embed videos and links.

4.) Options below the window allow adding tags and trackbacks.

5.) Hit the Apply button, at upper right, to save as you go.

6.) Hit the Publish now button, to send it to the publisher.

7.) Once sent, the publisher will be notified about your post. If it is deemed approriate, it will be published.

8.) You can see all published items in Your View at the Archives and Categories drop-down links under Your View at the top navigation bar of the main page.

Note: Your opinion will be the top item under Your View. It will also be the top item in the Your View box on the right of the site's front page.
