@carinemily Hi Carin, You are my first friend on Ello. I'm going to ever so slowly try to use this as I love Ello philosophy and what they stand for, but only time will tell if it catches on. For now I'm using it to Document our kids lives. Later I will set my account to be more private but it's public for now. You can "BOLD" and "italic" or "both". you can insert a "link" also. They need to do a lot more work but I have to applaud them for trying. If you go to the Feature List at the top of the page you can see what is "Coming Soon" to Ello.
