We’ve added a new tab and page about different ways that readers and bloggers can use the ARNOVA-CGAP blog. The contents are copied and pasted below, but you can always access the main page via this link or go to the blog’s home page and click on the tab “How to get involved”:
“How to get involved
Welcome new bloggers and readers! Here’s how you can help make this site work, and put it to work for you.
All of the content on this site is created by and for the ARNOVA-Community and Grassroots Association Section members, though of course it is public for anyone else to read.
Have a related thought or response to share on a post or announcement?
All of the items, reviews, announcements, etc., are open to comment. We hope that when you read the posts you will be moved to respond, relate, comment or query from time to time. Click on the
button under any item. Note that contributors will be asked for their names.
For example, if one of your favorite books or articles is listed, then tell the world how great it is. That works even if you wrote it. Your comments will appear later in the comments list on the item page. (Spam, offensive snarky comments and the like will be removed.)
Use the Reply link to respond to a comment or to get a conversation going.
But wait! There’s more.

7. What is that clump of words in different sizes on the left-hand side of the page? It’s a tag cloud, a field of recurring terms and key words that can be found throughout the site; topics like “movements” or “impact.” Click on one and retrieve the items where the terms occur. The size of the tag is associated with its frequency of use.”
