Here’s some general site information… including a few simple policies and “how to” information.
This site is “free” all around… it’s hosted at no cost by WordPress and uses WordPress software. One of the reasons for that is that it’s a labor of love on the “self-appointed” author. It happens that I use WordPress for my other blogs about real estate and writing and teaching. Using familiar software makes it possible for me to maintain this site efficiently and quickly.
Visitors are allowed to submit comments to pages and posts. Comments reviewed as time permits and we reserve the right to edit and delete. Please keep things positive and appropriate! There are some technical safeguards against “spam” (posts promoting products, people, and unrelated sites). In general, “non-profit” community events in the area will be considered acceptable. The primary purpose of the site is to provide information about Valley Grange and serve as something of a community resource. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
Information posted is generally believed to be accurate, but Valley Grange nor I make no warranties. Personal information is not collected when you visit the site. The only data collected (by WordPress) pertains to the history of your visit in general. This information is used only to assist us with web site management. If you register or provide your email address, we do not share, sell, or provide your information to others.
The word “site” is something of a misnomer; this would more accurately be called a “blog” (short for web log). It can be seen that the fundamental structure is a log or journal of posts (most recent last) supplemented by pages that remain more static in nature.
Navigation around the site using much of the familar “click” you are probably used to. In the two side bars are some helpful menus.
Categories are a bit like an indexing system. If, for example, you click the category “Bookworms,” you will get a display of all posts and pages that have something to do with the Bookworm Program.
Pages are a bit more static and contain a higher level of information that typically doesn’t change much. Pages are also listed across the bar at the top of the page.
Blogroll is a list of links to other sites that may be of interest. (These links are also grouped by categories to help you find things.) Note that these sites are not managed by Valley Grange or I. Our general policy is to includes sites of organizations and resources in the Valley Grange area. If you know others that should be included, please let me know. And please encourage other sites to “link back” to Valley Grange.
Recent Comments are just that–recent comments! Clicking on the link will take you to the actual comment.
Archives allows you to review all of the posts for a given month. This is similar categories, but date based.
The Meta Section is purely administrative.
Thanks for your interest… and continued use of the site!
