Posting a Diary Entry
Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as
is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.
When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.
If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.
ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.
One diary daily maximum.
Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries
that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.
There are now nearly 100 of us on this list. This is our 4th diary -- maybe we'll break the century mark today*. So, out of the shadows, ye tweeting Kossacks!
The goal: amplify our voices by making it very easy for kossacks with twitter accounts to follow each other on twitter, and to find each other's tweets by using the hashtag #kt2.
To have your twitter button added to the diary list below, simply leave a comment, with your twitter name preceded by @ in the header, and you will be added to the top of the New Additions list in the diary, right below the orange croissant. That makes it easy for anyone to return to the diary and click on newly added buttons in order to follow them.
And you'll be added to the cumulative alphabetical listings (front pagers are shown separately) that appear right below the New Additions, so you won't need to repost your twitter handle again. You can easily see who you're already following if you're logged into your twitter account on the same browser; current follows are grayed out.
It's really easy to follow any of us on the list -- just click on the button of anyone you'd like to follow.
Please also check out the other active twitter group here: DKos TWEETers, run by Angie in WA State, which provides tons of useful info about using and getting the most out of twitter.
