The FIRST TheFactoryFiveForum.com Blog!

What's this blog thing all about, anyway?

Rate this Entry
My first blog entry.

What makes a blog different than a Thread? How many blogs can a person have? Would having a blog make a good build journal? Or are they better suited as an online diary? Can non-members see these blogs?

These are but a few questions to answer in this, the first thefactoryfiveforum.com blog.

Let's experiment...

    First comment...

    Well, the first thing I noticed is that I can't edit it after it's posted. maybe that's why there is an option to save draft, and not publish...

    Hmmm...

    EDIT: the second thing I notice is that I can edit my comment.

    Well, turns out you CAN edit the blog, including the blog title. When viewing the blog, Click on the "My Blog" link, and then the pencil next to the blog post. Once you enter advanced mode, you can change the title of the blog post! More experiments happening soon...

    Can I comment on this blog like a thread?

    It appears so!

    Randy, I have notifications turned on so I know when sombody posts a reply. Thanks for testing it for me!

    The great thing about a blog as opposed to a thread is that, for example, you have a build blog, all of the comments for a particular blog post are grouped together, away from the blog itself, so that the blog remains concise and doesn't wander off topic like threads do.

    These blogs will make great build journals!
