How this weblog works
When you come to the front page you’ll see the latest entries, the most recent at the top. Scroll down for previous entries.
On the right hand side there’s a calendar. When any date is blue, that means there was an entry on that day. Click on the date and the page will display that day's items.
Underneath each entry are two words - "permalink" and "comments".
• "Permalink" means "permanent link", and is useful if you want to bookmark a particular entry or send it by email to someone else.
• "Comments" means just that. Click on it, and you can add your comments to that particular entry.
Clicking on an entry's headline takes you to that item's own page, where it is printed in full with all the comments on it. If you want to go back to the main index page, you can click either the words "Open Secrets" at the top of the page, or on the word "MAIN" which you'll find on a beige bar. On that bar you might also see the words "PREVIOUS" and "NEXT" - these take you directly to other entries in chronological order.
We are aiming to publish as many comments as possible, though unfortunately we can't guarantee to publish every one. Comments will only be published after we've had a chance to read them first.
