Evening Live Blog — A Place for All to Come Together and Discuss the Day’s Events!
The days and weeks ahead are going to be a nightmare. Trump is going to try to destroy so much of the hard work the Obama Administration accomplished. We can not be passive, we must stand up and Resist. Resist the Repeal of the Affordable Care Act, Resist the De-funding of Plan Parenthood, Resist everything they want to tear apart… RESIST!
“Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined.Be hopeful. Be empowered. Lead by example with hope; never fear.”
— Michelle Obama
“When you’re knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can’t or shouldn’t go on”
— Hillary Clinton
We are — Stronger Together!
All are welcome!
Welcome new meese! In the time honored tradition of “rearranging history on the Internet”, we have backed up to last night for an evening live blog as the inaugural Village post at the Motley Moose.
First order of business will be getting everyone signed up and logged in. You can post comments using a name and email address but until you are logged in you can’t Fierce (like) comments and posts … and you can’t write! :(
Here are the folks who commented on 1/31 and up to about 6am on 2/1. You have been added to the user list.

If you are on this list and still not able to log in, let me know and we will get the Moose to reset your password.
A bunch of new people wandered in throughout the day on 2/1 and early this morning (2/2). They will be gathered up and added later this morning and a complete list will appear here shortly.
Washed ashore on 2/1 and 2/2, not added yet:
I am all caught up! Let me know if I missed anyone.
To log into a WordPress blog, you must have cookies enabled. You can get here by clicking My Moose from the menu. If you are already logged in, it takes you to your dashboard; if you are not logged in, you will see this:
The first time you log in, you must use the password the Moose gave you. After that, you can change your password in your Dashboard. See this FAQ: How to Log In.
Speaking of menus, here is where the Village posts will be linked so that they are easy to find.
There will be more information added about how to post and link.
UPDATE: As promised, posting information.
The easiest way to create a new post is to clone it. If you work from the “It Takes A Village: TEMPLATE” post, you will have all of the set information to make sure it ends up in the correct category for your peeps to find it.
First, from your Dashboard, choose All Posts. You will see a list that shows the current posts. Click on Drafts to see only the Drafts.
If you click Clone, a new Draft will show up in the list cloned from that draft. Click Edit to edit the new post and modify it.
If you have a post that is NOT set up as a template but which you want to use a lot of the links or images from, you can clone it from inside the post. Click Edit and then choose “Copy to a new draft”. A new draft will be created and you will automatically be placed in it.
This image also shows some of the other parts of a post: adding Media (images), Previewing and Publishing.
I hope this is enough to get started!
