Register As a Follower, Create a Moniker and Don' t Be an Anonymous Reader

To all our readers:

In the spirit of debate, it behooves you to register as a follower and choose a moniker to identify yourself when you comment on our blogsite. TSB ensures you that if you register none of our readers nor TSB have access to your personal information, nor is your true identity divulged. The directions are simple:

1. To create an account click on the white "Follow Box" above the followers, on the right side of the blog page.

2. A screen will be displayed with a heading that says: "Follow the Spine Blogger" You will have the option to create an account with Google, Twitter, or Yahoo, and it doesn't have to be a Google account. Though, it is easiesr to register using your provide of choice, i.e., Google, Twitter or Yahoo.

3. Upon creating an account, you will be given the opportunity to create a moniker and select or download a personal photo is you choose.

4. You will also be asked if you would like to be a "public or private" follower, we would like for our readers to be public followers, yet, we respect those that choose to follow privately while wallowing in netherland.

5. Upon uploading a photo, click "Follow this Blog." You have now become a "Follower" with a moniker, making it easier to have dialogue with one another rather than everyone being Mr. or Mrs. Anonymous...

Once again, our objective is to allow other readers to address their opinion in response to your comments in regards to specific blogs. Thanks, Keep Reading and Let Your Voice Be Heard!


  1. MM what's the diff between a public and pvt follower?

  2. MM,

    What is the difference if we all use "Moniker"s versus "Anonymous".

  3. To Anonymous (#2, posted 7:25am):
    There could be two different posts by two different people, both named "Anonymous" making it hard to differentiate between them or addressing one versus the other (Anonymous #1, posted 9:11am).

  4. Thanks Spine Guy: You want a job reporting when we go to a legitimate website?

  5. To Spine Guy (#4 Post 9:59AM)

    Thanks SpineGuy. Makes perfect sense.

  6. @MM:
    "You want a job reporting...?"
    Food stipend included?

    @SSG(post 1:09PM):

  7. Thanks MM. While I appreciate that being able to associate different postings to one person makes everything much more conversational, and I'd love to see it happen, I despise creating accounts, logging in, etc. Is there no way to simply be able to create a moniker when we post the message? Maybe there is and I'm missing it. If so, please clarify.

    Would another option be to suggest to your readers that if you don't want to follow and prefer to use "anonymous", just please choose a moniker and begin your message with "Moniker says..." That would accomplish the objective as well, right?

    Great blog and keep up the great work!

  8. Sounds good to me! It's your party and you can cry if you want to, and do it anyway you like.
