Not to read one here (although they're lovely), but to write one. As in, this is a piece of the social networking puzzle and I am unable to find where to do this, if this capability exists at all. For someone out there who is feeling her way, and trying to figure out whether this kind of social organization would be a good thing, being able to blog, or at least have a sandbox in order to run a test drive, would be extremely helpful.
And, if it is indeed available, then there is no obviousness about how to go about doing this. I'm not seeing it in the profile or preferences screens, or the blogs or ideas tabs, or in the footer links.
So, um, how d'ya work this thang?
I am not entirely clear what it is you are asking.. I can see two possible questions in your post.
1) You are looking to get a feel for how Lithium handles their implementation of blogging software, but you can't see the software from the blog writers perspective.
If you are looking to get a better understanding of lithium's various features and functionality I would recommend following this link: http://lithium.com/company/demo/ This should give you the opportunity to explorer all the features that the product has to offer.. Or...
2) You are new to blogging, and want to experiment with running a blog of your own, to get a better understanding of the entire concept.
I would recomend trying out blogging by signing up to one of the many free personal blogging sites. Google has one, which should give you a good idea of what it is all about. check it out here: https://www.blogger.com/start
I hope this helps!
