Choosing a community

Communities are divisions within Hometown that help our members find others with similar interests. Hometown homepages and public blogs are assigned to communities to make them easier for members to find. It's a good idea to browse through the available communities to see where your blog belongs. Once you've chosen a community, assign your blog to it as follows:

  1. Press and hold the mouse over the down arrow next to the Community area.
  2. While holding the mouse button down, go through the list until you find the community you're looking for.
  3. Release the mouse.
  4. Click Next.

You've now created the basics for a public or private simple blog.

Note: You can't assign a private blog to a community.
