So the Challenge team can share your progress and read your comments on the ongoing challenge, you need to have a blog. For this year's challenge, you must have a blog created at Blogger.com. (a Google service)
Set up your own blog on Blogger.com and write your first post.
To add posts, edit or change the set-up of your blog go to http://www.blogger.com/
Please be sure to write down your login and password so you will be able to get back in.
To view your blog:
Your blog address is http://(xxxx).blogspot.com/
(xxxx)=the unique identifier you entered in Step 2.
Be sure to also write down your blog address. For example, this blog is http://oclwebthings09.blogspot.com/.
If you run into problems or would like more information about blogs and using Blogger here are some discovery resources you can use:

IMPORTANT NOTE: How you choose to identify yourself on your blog is your choice. You can blog under a screen name, anonymously, or as yourself. However, in order to qualify for the staff prize drawings, you will need to register by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org
To register your blog, you must send an email to email@example.com with your blog’s URL. We will then add your blog to our blogroll that you see on the sidebar of this blog so everyone can see what progress you are making. This is an easy step and absolutely essential if you'd like to win a prize. (Because we're little rascals, we're keeping the prize under wraps, for now!)
Once you have sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling the Challenge team your Gmail address and your blog address you have officially completed the first two things in the OCL Web Challenge 2009!
