How Do I Add Users To My Blog?

Log in to your blog as the Site Admin, then in your Dashboard, on the left side, see a drop down that says “Users”.  Click “Add New.”
You have to enter the user’s eppn. This is their username (short id) combined with @brown.edu. For instance, Josiah Carberry’s would be ‘jcarberry@brown.edu’ Then enter the user’s email address. For instance, ‘Josiah_Carberry@brown.edu’ Then choose a role for that user.  Which role should you pick?
