To add new content (stories or pictures):

At the top of the page is a link that says “Add a Story”. Click on it.

This will take you to a page where you may type in a title (required), add a photo, and write your story.

To add a photo, click on “Choose File”, then navigate to the photo you would like to add. Click “Upload”

To add a story, just type the story in the box below the word Story.

When you are finished, scroll down the page. It will help if you can fill in some of the other information boxes – Where was this? When was this? Who is in this story? Then scroll all the way to the bottom and click “Save”.

To comment on a story or picture, scroll to the bottom of the page. There will be a box to enter a title if you want one, and a second box to enter your comments. When you are finished, click "Save".

I think it will help children and grandchildren later on if we tag our stories with full names. However, in the stories themselves, it will probably be easier to use the nicknames we call each other. I think I will list a glossary of sorts so we can keep it all straight. Let me know what needs to be added!
