Once you have joined the Redland's Creative Alliance you can post blogs on the Members Blog pages.
If you are not logged in you will have to login with your email and the password you have set up. If you are not a member please go to the 'JOIN' page.
1. Once logged in choose the page you wish to post on.
Use the small menu line at the top left of the page to have a look at other options - go back to 'Members - All Blogs' to see the choices.
The blog area you are in will always be shown top left - like the one below the Visual Artist's Blog.
Underneath the main picture and heading on this page is a red button with 'Create new post' on it. Click this.
2. When you arrive at an empty blog page it looks like the below -
3. Give your blog a title
Simply type what you want to say. Make your heading clear and to the point - not to much text!
4. Then type the rest of the information
To change emphasis, make bullet, align or indent select the words you have typed in. See the illustration below.
Then click on the particular preference you have for your text.
When you import multiple photos make sure the previous ones are not selected (they are selected when they have a pink line around them) otherwise the next import will replace it.
5. Saving your blog
Click the 'Publish' button to make your event public, to 'Cancel' click that one.
The vertical row of 3 dots next to the 'Publish' button means you can 'Save as a Draft', but not publish on the site yet. This is then a draft which you can alter at a later time and then publish to make it public on the date you want to. See below.
When you come back to your draft and edit you can save, discard and Publish by clicking that button. Also in the draft mode, you will see at the base of the post the words 'unpublished changes', see the horizontal row of 3 dots to the right and with the choices seen below.
When you are finished with your draft click on the 3 vertical row of dots to save changes and publish. See below.
Please note - when you have posted, it will take a few minutes to save on the
site's server. So may not appear straight away if you have a quite few large pictures.
Try to keep your photo quantity down to 6 each time to save viewers on loading time.
