We created this ability after receiving numerous requests from groups who want to start a multi-voice blog.</p> <p> Some typical examples of a group blog:</p> <ul><li> Architecture studio school blog</li> <li> Firm or company blog</li> <li> Competition team blog</li> <li> Shared interest blog</li> <li> Location-specific regional blog</li> <li> Club or organization blog</li> </ul><p> If you already have a blog you can add another author to your blog using the administrative tools in the "Authored by" section in the right column:</p> <p> <img alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/2n/2nsgb7lo5vbp0fip.jpg" title=""></p> <p> Click "Add a new blogger" to add an existing Archinect member to your blog.

We added this feature as a quick and easy way to give a distinctive look to a blog, reflecting the style, or theme of the blog's content.</p> <p> Creating a nice background, however, is not as easy as it may seem, so we're putting together a few tips to help you create the perfect background, or environment, for your blog.</p> <ul><li> The background image you upload will tile, so consider how the image will look when it repeats horizontally and vertically.</li> <li> Consider that computers each have different resolutions... so what may look good on your screen, may not look the same on screens with smaller or larger resolutions.
