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.
Hey there SE Michigan Kossacks (and others within reasonable driving distance of Ypsilanti MI)!
If you're interested in taking part in the prep for and support of NN14, to be held in Detroit from July 17-20 this year, this is a good chance to get started. Please join us this coming Thursday, January 9th, at the Sidetrack Bar & Grill in Ypsilanti starting at 7:00 PM.
Three NN staff (Raven Brooks, Nolan Treadway, and Mary Nickles) will be in Michigan next week to do some scouting and networking. As part of their visit, they're setting aside a little time to meet with the NN14 Host Committee, comprised of people in the general area with an interest in promoting the success of the convention.
YOU can be part of that group. RSVP in the comment thread below, or send me a Kosmail. Feel free to ask me questions, and if I can't answer them myself I'll see about finding someone who can.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
