How does Coventry Community 19 work?

Courtesy of CCC
There are 18 wards in Coventry: Bablake, Binley and Willenhall, Cheylesmore, Earlsdon, Foleshill, Henley, Holbrook, Longford, Lower Stoke, Radford, Sherbourne, St Michael's Upper Stoke, Wainbody, Westwood, Whoberley, Woodlands and Wyken.

Just pick where you live and decide what you want to say about it. So, if you live in Cheylesmore and have some photos, the odd video or want to tell community there is an event coming up, then jus email and ask to be added to the approved set of authors of Coventry Community 19.

If there are already some community websites in your area let us know and we can link to them. Here at cc19, we are going to start everyone off with a post about each area and what we know. Coventry City Council have produced a page on each ward.

After the people who live in these areas, we have the people who try their best to help. These include Police, Fire, Medical, Council, Leisure and Businesses. For many busy people on the move in Coventry, starting a blog like this one requires a lot of time to set it and run. But now, it doesn't have to as you will receive a login and screen to post what you feel like.

For those concerned about content that is unsuitable, then that's how Wikipedia works. When someone posts a page, someone else receives an email saying it's there. If inappropriate, it get deletes and the author is no more.

Next up, is what the edit screen looks like... remember to email and be one of the 100.

From Blogger Login to my First Post...

In this post, we show you how to login to, few a few settings screen and get to work writing and posting here at Coventry Community 19.

In this sideshow, you can see some screen shots and how each one progresses to the finished post. By a post, we mean a set of words, photos or videos that are posted to Blogger and read over the web later on.

What do the buttons at the top do? Well, from left to right, we have the first five as formatting text, then making a link (to other web pages), the next eight to see how the text is displayed, then insert a photo, video and a button to remove any messy text that looks bad.

That's it, there is not really that much more to it. We will add in some Picasa Photo Albums and a YouTube Channel soon.
