so how/when will i get to blog/ask questions?
tiny-tim is correct. You can post questions right now, just start a thread in the appropriate forum section.

When the blog is used to ask questions, homework or otherwise, it gets deleted.

You should be able to since you are a Science Advisor. Is it not working for you?

It seems that it doesn't work for me. Or to be more precise, I cannot find where should I click to post a new blog entry.

If you are allowed to post to your blog, this should work:

Click on "My PF" at the upper left of any forum page.
Click on "Blog", at the bottom of the left-hand column.
Click on "Your Blog", 1st item in the Blog Control Panel group in the left column.
Click on "Post to your Blog", 2nd item in the Options group in the left column.

That should do it. Hmmm, it's My PF, yet it's Your Blog. Gads, these inconsistencies just drive the OCD in me nuts :biggrin:

My physics teacher usually just tells us the masses on the worksheet.

You can't just open up blogs to people who have at least a certain number of posts? Yeah it'll keep people from joining and starting up a blog right away but if they're going to be around long enough for a blog to make sense writing then they should build up a halfway decent post count anyway (doesn't need to be a huge number)
