Welcome to the EMiC community. Part of our mandate is to provide a social space where our members can share information, collaborate with one another, and publicize our research for the greater Canadian community. We’ve set up a blog space where you can post information about your research or make general announcements. We encourage everyone to participate on this blog, and we would love to hear what you’ve been up to in your research. Help us document the study of Canadian modernism by participating regularly on our blog.
This page will teach you how to post on the EMiC blog. These step-by-step instructions will guide you through the process of logging into our site and publishing your thoughts.
Step 1. Fill in your biographical information at editingmodernism.ca/welcome
Step 2. Log into the EMiC website

Step 3. The DASHBOARD
If you have entered your username and password correctly, you should see this screen. In WordPress, this is called the “Dashboard”:
This is the nerve center of WordPress. If you ever get lost, simply click “Dashboard” in the top navigation menu.
Step 4: Go to “Posts”
On the left-hand menu bar, you will see a label called “Posts.”
Step 5: Enter the title and text of your new post
Next, on the right-hand side you will see a “Categories” menu. Choose which categories best fit your blog post. Is your post about Research? News and Events? Etc. You’ll note that I choose to click “Tutorial” and “Technology” in this post since I am training you how to use WordPress.
Once you click publish, the site will take a few seconds to refresh. Congratulations! You have now created your first post. To see it, go to: http://editingmodernism.ca/community/
Our project is all about collaboration, and there is no better way to share your work than periodically posting on our blog.
