Hey! Thanks for visiting Blognasium, “A Community of Expression”.
This is a website intended to provide space to share experiences and record the thoughts, expressions, personal and public events with other members. It is also a repository that preserves and provides a history for those expressions. It can be both private and/or public.
Blognasium has become an on-line photo album in the “ShareSpace” tab for the Kautz family photos. Photography is one form of expression.
Many of these family photos are in a private area where membership to the Kautz family group is required for them to be seen. But other photos are posted in the public space. ShareSpace on Blognasium is a general community, for open posting or creating additional private groups. Presently, that isn’t happening, but it could very easily. Just join, jump in and create a new space.
I am Dan Kautz, the patriarch of my branch of the Kautz Clan. Small and somewhat twig-like, but nevertheless a stem that continues to grow.
I build web sites. Blognasium is my attempt to provide a safe, common community for sharing both public and private family stories, history or any other needs. My attempt to keep the branch connected.
It is an alternative to the exploitive data gathering of the most popular and what I consider, highly volitile FB experience.
I would love to see Blognasium used for other community and family sharing activities. Space is practically unlimited. There is also a community Blog space open for writers other than me. I like to write, but I know it’s not everyone’s desire…
There is some non-family visitor and member activity. There is plenty of room for more to come in from the cold. The intent is not an exclusive community. Private areas can be created, but there is plenty of open community available for personal expression comming from anyone.
Blognasium is a website where every member can have a place to say what they want. Well, publish what they want. I have published a dozen separate blogs about the things that interest me. Blognasium is where I open the door for anyone else to do the same. The infrastructure is here and free for just joining.
The ShareSpace is designed to share current personal activity with short posts and pictures. Once registered, Photo albums can be created for sharing. There is a place for Pages where articles can be published. Groups can have their private or public space as they desire. The Blog is where you might want to write a detailed story, more like an article with provision and encouragement for reader comments. Blogs usually are not private. Discussions are where two or more people can join in open public Q&A discussion, much looser than a blog but more organized than posting in the Community.
About the Registration
Registration is required to contribute. You enter some basic personal information. You have control over what is shown publicly for some of that information like age, gender, phone, and location. It’s display is up to you, after you are registered. The community is intended for us to get to know each other and not hide behind a “handle”. A “username” is welcome (I use RamblinDan) but it’s no secret identity.
I have resigned from the Facebook site. Ransomware tried to capture my computer while I was using Facebook. No advertising or tracking links are permitted here. No data is shared other than what you make public. I installed HTTPS security, so everything sent to and from this website is encrypted.
Blognasium is designed to be a safe community.
