==What is BluWiki?==
+
BluWiki is a site dedicated to helping you ''say something'' online.  It uses [[wiki]] software to make it as easy as possible for anyone to put content on our site.  This means Grandma can upload her cat photos, Dad can create an online book of recipes, and Mom can collaborate with co-workers.  Yeah, it's cool - but don't take our word for it; '''[http://www.bluwiki.org/start.php create your own page]''' and give BluWiki a spin.  Oh, and it's completely '''free'''.

===The BluWiki Vision===
+
[[Image:Weather-few-clouds.png|left]]
+
'''Bringing web publishing to the people.''' Imagine a world where ''everyone'' can publish online. Without censorship, popups, or banner ads.  And you don't even have to know html!  That's right, just good old-fashioned text publishing.  Help us accomplish this vision, make BluWiki your home on the web.
+
 
+
===Other sites on BluWiki===
+
To see how others are using BluWiki as their website, you can try [[Special:Popularpages|the most popular pages]] / [[Special:Randompage|a random page]] / [http://www.bluwiki.org/index.php?title=Special%3AAllpages&namespace=0 or all pages].

==Using BluWiki==
+
'''[http://www.bluwiki.org/start.php Click here]''' to create a new page on BluWiki.  You can immediately start editing your new page, no username or password required.  Before you create a page, we recommend you get used to how a wiki works in our [[Sandbox]].
+
 
+
===New to Wikis?===
+
A Wiki is a website that generally allows, and even encourages, all of its visitors to contribute by editing the site.  Wikis are therefore designed to make it as easy as possible to add content online - often users only need to click the "edit" button and start typing. 
+
 
+
BluWiki uses this wiki technology, but to a different end than most wikis.  The site's purpose is to enable users to publish their own content online, not to contribute to a common body of knowledge.
+
 
+
There are several Wiki variants online.  The BluWiki website uses the most popular, [[MediaWiki]] variant.  Editing MediaWiki pages are easy, you can use both Wiki Markup and (in most cases) HTML.  See our [[Help:Contents|help section]] for more information.
+
 
+
==Who runs BluWiki?==
+
[[Image:Group.png|right]]
+
[[Sam Odio]] started BluWiki (that's me!).  Right now I do most of the site's  maintenance & development - although more and more users are helping out.  In particular, I'd like to thank [[User:Nathan|Nathan]], [[User:Bear|Bear]], [[User:Nerdvana|Duncan Dewar]], and [[User:Chotchki|Chotchki]].
+
 
+
The site is kept free mostly because of the support of my company.  The site has also received about $125 in contributions from a few [[BluWiki:Site_support#Past_Sponsors|sponsors]].
