Welcome to the Eastern Moors blog site. In recent months this has been updated so that wardens, volunteers and supporters can now write blogs, submit photographs and comment on Eastern Moors topics. Please click on an appropriate tab above to get involved. If you are unsure how to post a picture, article or comment then please look at the Users Guide or email us.

Blog users guide

Thank you for helping develop our blog.
There are 3 ways in which you can contribute to this site.

Firstly you could add a comment to most of our topics.  To do this you need to click on the appropriate tag underneath the header picture.  For example you could click 'sightings'.
Once in this area you need to click on comments (or no comments, if you are the first responder) and then add your text regarding what you have seen.
Finally go down to 'comment as' and scroll down to name.  Add your name or pseudonym or go down to the box marked 'anonymous'. Click the appropriate box and you are finished.
Remember it is not possible to include photos in Comments.

Secondly you could write a full blog.  This is for people who wish to provide a more extensive article about a specific topic.  In this case you need to be designated as an author. To do this you need to email '', to request author status and specify the topic you wish to write about.  Eastern Moors will then add you as an author and you are then free to write a full blog, including photos if required.  Once your blog is complete please click the labels button on the right and click the appropriate label for the subject on which you have written.  This will ensure that all blogs go into the right sections.  It is possible to add photographs and other media to your blog.  Once you are an author you can add other posts without authority (unless you have been removed!)

Thirdly we would welcome your photographs.  We currently have an active site on Flickr which can be accessed from our home page.  Please do not be put off by the high quality of the photographs on this site.  Several top photographers in the area have contributed to our site but this does not mean that it is reserved for them. We welcome all photos which have a story to tell.  If you already have a Flickr account then all you need to do is go to the Eastern Moors Group site and click on the link '+ join group', you can then add photographs to it.  If you currently do not use Flickr, it is very easy to open a free account and place your own pictures on it.  Once they are there then you can join the group as mentioned above.  You will also be able to add your photographs to a wide range of other sites both local and national.  Please contact us if you need any help.
