At top right, below your username, click My Blog, and post something!

Ok, I've made a post. Where is it?

Your post will appear below the blue posts, nearer the bottom of the front page. The blue posts are known as the "blue stickies". Your post may be promoted to sticky-dom by Lindsay Perigo if he feels it is worthy. Bribes entertained, but hardly ever accepted. Eye

How do I post a link?

Use the anchor tag.

If this is your link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivism.

Then just enclose it in the anchor tags and use the href attribute:

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Objectivism">Objectivism</a>

Your link will show up like this:

Objectivism

What's the best way to quote something?

Use the blockquote tag.

This is what a block quote looks like:

Nunc ac lacus est, ut rutrum velit. Donec vehicula consectetur libero vitae dictum. Vestibulum non diam a sem elementum semper sit amet a elit. Nulla dictum enim eget purus tempus ullamcorper. Aenean fringilla euismod tortor vitae consequat. Phasellus accumsan, libero non molestie gravida, massa erat facilisis lectus, vitae lacinia tortor sem a nibh. Duis iaculis tortor felis. Aenean ac rhoncus turpis? Praesent ut libero sed nunc pretium porta. Etiam nibh sem, sagittis facilisis sodales a, laoreet vel diam.

Simple enclose your text in the blockquote tags.

<blockquote>Your text goes here</blockquote>

Note the / in the closing tag.

What's the easiest way to get back to the front page?
