Blog Post Guidelines
The purpose of this Consultants’ Network blog is to bring notice to articles and ideas of new technology, changinging technology, local Silicon Valley engineering related news, etc. Please ensure the topics posted are relevant to engineers, product development, new technical breakthroughs, etc. The posting of new articles are limited to the current and past CNSV board members and select others specifically approved by the board. Your post can be your own from scratch, an article you found elsewhere on the Web, or a mix. If you have an opinion of an article you are posting from elsewhere, please state your opinion at the top and include your signature immediately after that paragraph.
(If this is your first blog post on this site, it will require moderation. Thereafter, your posts will be published immediately.)
You have a choice of two means for formatting your post: “Visual” (e.g., WYSIWYG) or “Text” (used for entering text and manual html.) These are selectable as tabs in the upper-right of the main Editor on the New Blog Post page. Once you start in one mode, you should not really switch to the other mode. That scenario is not handled well by WordPress.
You are strongly encouraged to add at least one photo, diagrams, etc., using the “Add Media” button located above the main editor window. When uploading a file to the Media Library, after upload is complete, you must resize the photo to 600 to 700 pixels wide. The proportional height will be set automatically.
If you are posting an external artical that spans more than two pages/screenfuls, it is strongly suggested to add a “Read more…” html link and include the original article page URI/URL in that link. You can use the “link” button in the Format menu at the top of the main editor window to do this easily, and set the link text to “Read more…”.
If you are posting an article from elsewhere, be sure to give credit to both the original author(s) and publication/website and original date at the very bottom of your post, and include a link.
