Hi!

Welcome to MBCAKC's new website. I'm Julie, the "administrator" of this website, which basically means that I created it and will do my best to keep it functioning. We've been talking at our monthly meetings about creating a new website so I (in my usual, pushy way of doing things) went ahead and set this one up. We're still trying to work out some bugs and get things to look the way we want them to look, and we look forward to hearing from you about how we can meet your needs.

This website is what is called a "weblog" or "blog," and it is powered by a software called "blogger," which is free, and which you can use to set up your own (free) weblog, by clicking on the button to the left that says "powered by blogger." It's free because the creators of "blogger" (a company called "Pyra") sell advertising on our space. See the little "banner" ad at the top of this webpage? Well, that's why this website is free.

We can't do a lot of graphics here. We can't do a lot of formatting. We can't post photos. (Well, we could probably do all those things in theory, but I'm just not smart enough. If any of you guys reading this are web designers who are willing to write us some free code, please get in touch with me and we'll talk.) What we can do is post text, and lots of it. The beauty of "blogger" software is that it makes it very easy to update text on a web page.

For now, only Bruce and I will have the ability to update and post to this website, while we work the various bugs out, then we'll see how it evolves.
