Communication among bryologists using BRYONET could be boosted by using the IAB blog. Until now, the first stage using the blog has been to post rescued items which were sent first to the email list.
However, the blog not only provides an archival system for future reference. The blog can help by making BRYONET traffic more automatic and easy to follow up by FIRST POSTING TEXT AND IMAGES to the blog and just sending the links to the email list. Janice will appreciate this feature which would make her work load lighter!
Use the IAB blog to compose and edit your announcement as a web page ......
Blogger.com provides an online editor to compose text and images. You need to register with the blog administrator to login. Send your email to receive a link to activate your own user id & password.
Once you've logged into Blogger.com you'll see your Dashboard. Click the blue 'New Post' button to create a new post. Start by giving your post a title, then enter the text and images. If you have previously edited a Word file, copy and paste it into the blog. Once you're satisfied with your text and images, click the "Publish" button. This will publish your new post. Click on the "View blog" link to see your post. Fonts, text and image composition, all your character encoding is compatible in multiple web browsers and languajes.
Now you can share your announcement to BRYONET.
.....and email just the link to BRYONET. It is easy!
You can send your link post by the email feature provided within the IAB blog. Look for the email icon at the end of the post. An email form will open when clicking on the icon. Use you regular email to send the link to Bryonet. This is how I just sent you this invitation!
