In a Nutshell
Unlike other blogs, anyone can post in eHarmony Blog. We’re more of a open discussion forum. To add a topic, you simply have to click this link to register and then submit a post. If you have OpenID, the registration process takes 2 seconds.
For more details, read further. Welcome to the eHarmony Blog community. We look forward to hearing your view.
Got eHarmony adventures?
eHarmony Blog is the first and only web log for eHarmony, and it’s no-holds-barred unofficial! We’ve been described as, “Seriously, this site is detailed (yay) as well as opinionated (double yay). Every service should be so lucky to have a blog like this about them.1”
Our editorial policy is simple: “We are unaffiliated with any dating site. Be wary of articles from authors who are!”
On 1 May 2007, eHarmony Blog opened its doors for correspondents. If you have a topic to share with or ask to eHB readers, and you understand our editorial policy, we welcome you aboard.
Anyone can start a topic
eHarmony Blog offers three kinds of correspondent accounts:
- Contributors. Contributors can create posts but Editors must approve them for publication. Everyone who comes in becomes a contributor, instantly. Yay!
- Authors. Authors can create and publish posts and edit their own posts. We’ll grant this role to people after we get to know them better.
- Editors. Editors can create and publish posts, edit their own posts, publish other people’s posts, moderate visitor comments, and access eHB’s Google Analytics reports. We’ll grant this to Authors who promise to be good boys and girls.
All your contributions remain your property and all rights to copy and distribute it is yours. Of course, eHB editors are empowered to edit your contributions for clarity and when it is absolutely necessary.
What can I write about?
Any question or any issue you have about eHarmony, or dating or relationships. Share with us your last phone call, your last date, or your engagement story with an eHarmony match — with civility of course.
Might I get in trouble with this?
Although no part of eHarmony Blog hardware and software is in US jurisdiction, having a pseudonym and changing the details that are identifiable to you is a good idea.
OpenID, what is that?
Today, 15 May 2008, eHarmony Blog forgoes the traditional way of account registration (filling out a form, creating a username and a password, then confirming your email address) before you can add a topic. We’re making topic-posting instant.
OpenID allows Internet users to log on to many different websites using a single digital identity, eliminating the need for a different username and password for each site. With an OpenID, adding a topic takes seconds.
- Click “Add a topic »” found on top of any page
- Provide us an identity via OpenID (takes 1 to 10 seconds).
- Start writing!
I promise that once you get used to OpenID, you’ll lose interest filling out web registration forms.
Cool, so how do I get an OpenID?
Surprise! You may already have one. If you use any of the following services, you already have your own OpenID. Type the URL into the OpenID URL box, click “Log in” then follow your OpenID provider’s instructions.
