Short for "web log," a blog is typically used as an online diary, except that is exposed to the whole world. QDL supports this kind of usage, and while in other areas of QDL (such as the forums and the articles) you have to abide by guidelines set up by the owner of the parent page, in the Blogs
, you're the owner, and you can do pretty much anything you want. The only rules are the overarching QDL Site Rules
. If you don't violate any of those, the Blogs
give you a chance to speak your mind, and to see what other people are thinking. As a general rule, if you don't like what you see in someone else's blog, don't complain to the administrators — just don't read that blog anymore!
The cool thing about blogs in QDL is that you're not limited to just posting sequential comments, optionally allowing people to reply. You can organize your blog with pages and sub-pages however you like.
If you have not already set up your blog page, go to QDL / My... / Settings / Profile, and check the box that says, "create page for me in blog folder."
