I would like to submit a letter regarding my thoughts on Montana's special election. Oftentimes in politics there si no follow up once something is concluded and I think that there are some valuable lessons to be learned from Rob Quist's failed campaign for Congress. I live in Montana and thought that I might be able to spark a discussion among some of the readership here.

    Hi Chris,
    This is a very large blog, and you have reached the Help Desk. The Help Desk is where technical questions are addressed, and your question will only be seen by a handful of technically inclined users and some staff.

    In order to reach the broader Daily Kos readership, you need to register as a user. Do that, and you can post as many stories (also called Diaries) to the blog as you wish.

    Go to the main page and you will find registration is quite easy.

    Before you begin writing, I suggest you read the Rules of the Road for this site.

    You may wish to comment and participate in the community discussions before posting a diary. That will give you a feel for the site, its regular users, and community norms. A word of caution. Don't select a username with numbers in it. That is a spammer trick, and you may be snagged by the spam filter. Select a username carefully, because once you have it, you are stuck with it. Also, don't put links in your first few comments. Another spammer trick, and again, the spam filter may get you for that.

    You may wish to take a look at this set of resources: http://helpdesk.dailykos.com/kb/writing-a-diary/tutorial-reading-an...

    For that matter, the Knowledge Base associated with Help Desk here has a number of topics that you might find relevant.

    Browse around the place. Come back to the Help Desk if you run into problems or have questions. We look forward to seeing you around.
