That's a good question considering this is the first post using the new FeedTacoma blog-o-rama-lama-ding-dong system. Yup, you can now setup your own blog anytime, anywhere here at FeedTacoma. Use it for whatever you want personal, political, professional, or otherwise. Here are some quick instructions on how to get started.
- If you don't already have a free FeedTacoma account, sign up.
- Sign in
- Click on the Account link in the upper right of the page
- Click Start an Entry
- Save your entry and make it public
- Now you can go back to your account area and click "Visit Your Blog"
There's plenty more to do cleaning things up and adding features. Consider this a beta. Please let me know what you think in the comments below and enjoy!

|This is cool.
So will blog posts appear down with forum posts, then? Or will they be part of the feed?

|jen: The commenting in the blogs will also show up in the forums. Let's people get involved in conversations from different angles.
This week I'll also be enabling any blog post with a "tacoma" tag to show up on the FT homepage. Don't worry, I'll be monitoring for abuse and such to keep FeedTacoma the great local resource it is.

|Possible bug, possible I'm an idiot. (Very possible.)
I edited my post in the forum view, and it doesn't seem to have edited it in the blog view. Also, it seems like when I tried to put in a "mailto" it broke all the formatting. (Which is why I was editing.)

|Ooo, yea, editing in the forum is no good. You can just use the link tool in the blog editor to insert the "mailto" code. I'll likely take the suggestion to auto-forward any blog comment posts directly to that blog entry rather than leave a person here in the forum.|
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
