    Can I make it so anyone can add a post to my blog and then I approve it?

    The blog I need help with is failedagain.wordpress.com.

    Technically yes, but that’s not really a blog: it’s a wiki, which you can google.

    You just make a new ID with a new email, set it as a Contributor and put the username and password in the sidebar. A word of warning; you will be INUNDATED with spam if you do this.

    Please don’t do that.

    Here’s what you should do: ask people to post things in comments or send them via a contact form.

    If you have regular contributors, you can add them as a Contributor or Author so they can post directly.

    You could use the PS2 theme where comments show up on the front page.

    Announce “Open Moderated Thread” or whatever and then set comments to moderated so you have to approve them first.
