So a wolf walks into a bar with a shiny new blog... and doesn't know what to do with it. Does he bite it? Hide it? Show it off to the world? In the end, he's come up with ten different conclusions, none of which make any more sense than the other (kind of like a philosophy discussion), so, in an attempt to exit intellectual limbo, he simply sets it on one side of the bar, orders a drink, and updates it whenever he feels like broadcasting his innermost thoughts to the world, in the manner of laundry hung out in the sunlit yard to dry. Because isn't that what blogging is about, really? You just take care not to show too much dirty underwear. :)

Anyway, yeah. Shiny new blog. You're welcome to polish it if you like. Make it shinier. Just take care not to break it or I'll run you out with this ten-foot furry pole. *waves*

Welcome to Dreamwidth. I'm sure you'll think of things to say soon. You've been eloquent enough on FurRag so far. ;D

I recommend caution about that. Some folks do block comments from non-friends or anonymous, others screen them and only allow them to show after approval. I found it most effective to start out slowly, by commenting on people that I know. This seems often to lead to other people subscribing to your own journal, at which point you can make the process mutual and comment on their stuff as well.

Certainly I think that barging in on too many people that we don't know is likely to lead to accusations of "trolling" or worse. ;D

What to do with a new blog? You write in it. Pour out your soul for the world to see. Well, within reason, anyway.

Remember that you can use it as a private journal when you wish, by changing the privacy setting for any individual post. But the power of the blog is the exchange of ideas and opinions, and the meeting of minds. Don't let it become just a box into which you whisper your complaints, as some do. Instead it should be a forum for dreams and developments.
