How to enjoy project50

Hi there.

I was talking to someone the other day and realised that she only saw the daily post and had no idea how to get the most out of project50. So this post is for those who aren’t seasoned bloggers or avid blog readers.

When you open up project50 (or receive an email notification that I’ve posted, if you’re a subscriber…you’re not? Why not? 😉 ) it will open up at the “home page”, ie: the latest entry. This being the 142nd post, it would be a shame if, as a new reader, that’s all you get to see. After all, not every post is going to be interesting and/or relevant to you. There are permanently visible “pages” which are tabbed along the top which are easily accessible (in fact, this post will eventually be made into a page as a permanent resource for new readers).

The good news is that you can read or re-read any of the posts at any time, or browse through the blog by using the alphabetically arranged category and tag “clouds” on the righthand side. To explain: at the end of every post, there is a list of categories and tags. So, for example, this post will be categorised as a blog and an article and tagged as “taking part”. So if you read a post that you particularly enjoy, browse the clouds on the right and click through on the “taking part” tag and you will be taken to a list of posts that have also been tagged and categorised in that way.

For example, if you enjoyed the recent “Letter to my father” and would like to see more of these personal posts, you could click “letters” in the category cloud and a list of letters would appear, including “Letter to my daughters”. If you’d like to see more Interviews, click that link and so on.

If, however, you click the “letters” tag at the end of the article, you’ll be taken to other blogs that have used that tag. (Be prepared to lose hours if you do this, though!) Alternatively, you can click any day on the calendar on the righthand side and be taken through to that day’s post.

If you feel moved to comment on any of the articles (please do – I love to hear your views and thoughts, plus your comments add to the posts and help the connections we’re making between us all) it’s easy – just click on “comment” and type away.

Simple when you know how, isn’t it? If you never want to miss a post, click the “subscribe” button and you’ll get an email each time I post with a link. (Don’t worry, your email address is safe with me – you know that, right? Now you’ve got to know me?) Or if you prefer, follow project50 on Twitter. If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.

must dash...

Following on from my SOS earlier in the week – THANK YOU for all the lovely offers of help and advice. There will be some changes coming to project50 as a result that I hope to annouce on Sunday. Meanwhile, I hope to see you tomorrow for the Saturday Interview.
