Blog for Iowa’s Running Conversation! Current Hot Topic: Health Care
people have expressed an interest in being able to have a running
conversation on Blog for Iowa. It seems feasible now that we
actually have quite a few people who are interested in posting!
So, I’d like to re-introduce our “new” feature called Open Threads.
Blog for Iowa will keep an open thread up and running in a prominent
position – top, right sidebar of the blog. This way, people can
post in the open thread and a real back-and-forth discussion can take place.
How to Post a Comment on Blog for Iowa
Blog for Iowa now accepts anonymous comments in addition to those of readers who have first logged in to our BlogHarbor / blogware system.
If you do not wish to post anonymously, you need to first create a reader
account. Go to the Log In component on the left sidebar, and
click on Create Reader Account. Then, once you’ve confirmed your
email address, you need to Log In on the main page of BFIA (left sidebar). THEN
you’ll be able to post a comment.
usernames have to be one word – no spaces, all lower case. But you can
choose a nickname which will be displayed when you post a comment, and
the nickname can include spaces, like My Full Name.
not harvest your information after you create a reader account.
You are actually creating a reader account for the entire BlogHarbor
system, our host company, and we have no access to the list.
Blog for Iowa will moderate all comments.
This post will host the Running Conversation, so comment here.
Of course, you are still welcome to comment on other posts. You can use the same procedure mentioned above.
Please note: Try as we might, we could not “fix” the fact that new comments will appear at the bottom of the comments, older comments at the top.
So, speak up! We’d love to hear from you!
