The Internet address for this public blog is forum.bigfamilynews.com. This is not a typo. Blogger does not use "www" in its blog URLs. We announced the change via Twitter on September 18 and 19, 2011, @BigFamilyNews. Relatives who Sign-up (register) can Sign-in at the top right corner of this page to post blogs (descriptions here); relatives use our online forms to register here.
Once you Sign-up, you can Sign-in to our web site(s) at the bottom of the page at www.bigfamilynews.com. We're creating sub domains as another way of separating public and restricted content; this tool also helps us consolidate family web sites to just a few domain names (read more).
By October 17, 2011, we expect to finish moving the private family blogs. For updates, please watch this blog or @BigFamilyNews.
Anyone can view public content on our Google Sites. For good measure, we moderate blog comments and use word verification to deter spam. Here's our Comments Policy (download here).
