How to Let People Know about This Blog

So, Marlborough Weavers!

When you are ready to let your friends and family know about this blog, (which should be now), you must them send a link, (also called "URL" or "web address",) in an email or letter so they can find us.

To send a link to the entire blog, with the newest post appearing at the top, copy/paste the following line and send:

To send a link to a particular post, click on the title of the post you want, until you see a line that has more words than the blog link above, at the top of your screen. For example, to send a link to the post titled "2009 Weaving Starts", you need to copy/paste and send:

Over time as we accumulate posts, you may want to search for a particular weaver, event, or topic. Look for quick access like these on the right hand side bar.

"Searching for posts relating to...?" gives quick access to a particular weaver, event, or topic, using Blogger's label function. For example, if you want to see posts pertaining to a particular weaver's work, click on the weaver's name. If you don't see a name or a topic, no relevant post has been posted yet.

By default, we have the monthly archives. Right now we don't have enough posts for this to make much sense, but if you click on an sideway arrow pointing to a particular year, you will see names of the month appear below the year. If you click on the sideway arrow pointing to a particular month, you will see a list of titles posted during that month. Click on the title you're after to see the post. If you click on a name of the month, everything posted during that month will come up on the main, left two-thirds of the screen. If any of these arrows point downwards, as they do now, it means the months and/or titles are already displayed.

At the very bottom of the right sidebar, there is a picture of an over-wound pirn with "Hints for Marlborough Weavers" just above it. The picture is a quick access button for all posts with the label, "about blogs"; click on the picture to see how it works.

If you still can't find what you're after, search by keyword by typing in the word in the space at the top left of the screen, and click on the "search blog" button to the right of that space.

Final resort: ask me.
