TERYL: Welcome club members and parents! This is my first attempt at blogging so if it fails I will delete the page and pretend it didn't happen.
I am trying to figure out how to navigate Weebly without being able to cut and paste. This means I can't send old news to an archive page, among other annoying things, so some pages can become very long over time. I do want to keep a record of our activities during the year; this blog will create archives so hopefully that will help.
Also, I can't copy from emails to the website or vice versa. Arrghh! I will try this blog page to see if it helps disseminate info more expeditiously; I know it is hard to see if any updates have been added to the other pages so hopefully I can let you know in the blog when I have edited pages. Creating links to specific paragraphs is another feature missing from Weebly so you will still have to scroll around, sorry! I suppose if all those features were available I'd never be able to figure it out, so baby steps!
You can leave comments and suggestions on this page. I do have editorial privileges when it comes to comments but be advised they are limited to removing them. Hopefully that will not become necessary; just keep in mind that this is a public forum for the club and continue to send private emails for personal discussions. Even though this page is passworded the information on it is not completely private so please remember the 4-H rules and do not use last names or personal info like phone numbers, birthdates or addresses.
For you tech-savvy people, you can suscribe to the RSS Feed, whatever that means. Let me know if I have to do something to enable that :-) I still have some research to do...
Please email club-related news that you would like to see on the Members Page, for example things like Kaymie's and Matthew's pictures being in the 4-H newsletter, graduating from a dog training class, volunteering, etc. I am thinking of starting a Members in Action page eventually, not sure yet whether this would be passworded or open to public viewing. For now i will only post to the passworded page.
I would like to start posting photos from dog shows and events so send your photos and descriptions to the club email address so I can start organizing some new pages. You will be able to access those pages from the Dog Shows and Events tab.
If you have other ideas for this website let me know by email but please be patient with me as I learn!
