Here are some slightly more explicit directions for how to post on the top end of the blog.
First you need a blogger account. These are free, you can sign up for one by going to http://www.blogger.com and clicking the links for signing up. After you sign up you want to join the http://www.shimercollege.blogspot.com blog. To do this send an email to me email@example.com or bill firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you a membership invitation. Numerous invites were sent out, but they may have gotten lost or ended up in bulk mail folders. If you did not get an invitation and want one let one or the other know.
Follow the directions in your invitation to join the blog. Once you have joined you can login again at blogger.com to be taken to the blogger dashboard. From the dashboard click the link that says Future of Shimer College where you will see the title in the upper left corner, and directly beneath a tab that says POST. Click on this tab and you should see a large open text field where you can past text (usually better to write in a word processor first) under the title field. This looks like a screen you might see when composing an email. Add a subject, paste your text and you are ready to publish.
Click the giant orange button under the text field that says Publish Post and you should be ready to go.
If you have any further problems please feel free to contact Bill or myself and we will do our best to help you through it.
