Registering an account and setting up a blog (if you want one)
There are two basic kinds of users on thirty // thirty: Subscribers, who just want to read poems by poets who’ve allowed them access, and poets, who each have their own blog where they publish their 30/30 drafts.
1. Select a username. Try to pick something your fellow poets will recognize, unless you’re intent on being anonymous. If you’re registering to post, and not just read, your username will become your blog url. In the example image, “johnpauldavis” will end up with a blog at thirty thirty.org/johnpauldavis
2. Enter your email. You’ll receive all correspondence from the site at this email.
3. If you want to be a Subscriber only, then when you register, you check the “Just A Username Please” option. If you want to post poems on your own blog, leave the “Gimmie a site!’ option check.
If the system accepts your username and email, you’ll see a message like the one below:
If you’re not registering a blog, you’re done!
If you’re registering a blog, now you need to choose the official site name for your blog. Again, it’ll be helpful for you to choose something that will help poets know if they want to follow your 30/30. Do this, click “Signup.”
If signup is successful you should see something like the below screenshot:
