Example of how a guest article will look on this blog

Title of Article Goes Here

Author Name

Recently someone asked me if I could put an article of theirs on my site. I had never considered it, but I can't see any reason why I can't. So after poking around under the hood and looking here and there, I figured out how to make it work within iBlog without having to hand code an entire page. I still have to hand code the article block, but that is a lot easier. This allows all other features of my blog like Permalink, Comments and the RSS feed to keep working.

So, this is how I see it looking. It still compliments the overall look of the website. I can include any standard HTML code, but I would prefer if you stuck to links. The font is Palatino instead of Times New Roman Italic like in my normal quotes.

I'm not really an editor, but I am more than willing to publish almost anything within reason. It can't be too inflammatory and it should have some sort of logic. Even though I am a Pagan, this isn't my Pagan blog, I focus more on freedom and politics here. Other than that, I will publish anything, even if I disagree with it.

Maybe especially if I disagree with it.

For legal reasons, any graphics would need to reside in my server space, and I wouldn't be able to include any programming scripts. Obviously the article needs to be original and follow all copyright and fair use laws.
