A Guided Tour of Writers Harbor.Org (2)
go to the HOME PAGE. You get there by loading www.writersharbor.org into your address bar.
Minimize the page.
Open a second browser. Open “A Guided Tour of Writers Harbor.Org “.
Now you can jump backwards and forwards, from the guide to the actual page, and back again.
Look to the left, where it says: BROWSE WORKS
The only Option underneath that is: PUBLIC WORKS
If you click on that, you get to see ALL the works on the site that are viewable to the public, in order of date posted. (In chronological order of date posted.)
If you become a member, and sign in, you will also see:
POST YOUR WORK
Some of this is more experimental software. But the idea is that if you join a Family of Writers, then your work is only viewable by those Family members, not by the general public. Each Family, I’m reckoning, will want to set its own rules. That’s fine by me. If people want to allow open access, then so be it. If people want to require members to apply first, be approved, and then allowed in, then that’s also fine by me.
(I’ll deal with POST YOUR WORK later)
Look to the left, where it says: MOST ACTIVE WRITERS
The numbers in brackets indicate the number of works posted. Let’s pick on Alister Flik (54).
Click on Alister Flik. A new page opens. In big black letters, it says: PUBLIC PROFILE.
And there’s photo of her after eating too much hot curry. Look to the left. You will see:
• View All Works
• Unsubscribe (if you are a member)
• Send Message (if you are a member)
You can play around with those actions. Let’s hit VIEW ALL WORKS.
A listing opens up with all her works. (VIEW WRITER’S WORKS)
Notice you can click on the column headers. Example: click on “HITS “. Now it arranges the hits in a descending order of highest first.
Read, digest, Enjoy!
