Allowing other people to publish on your WordPress Blog

The last post talked about granting people the rights to write on your blog when you are writing on the Blogger platform. However, if you are using a hosted WordPress installation, then the previous post did not apply. In this post, I will explain how to grant rights if you are running a blog that is based on WordPress.
I write a blog on Photo tips called 5phototips.com. I have been considering for some time as to whether to allow more people to contribute to this blog, since a lot of people have tips based on their photography experience.
So what do I need to do ? I log into the Wp-admin for this WordPress blog, and then click on the Users link. Here you can add Users and then set their role to be either that of Author or Contributor.
What is the difference between the roles of Author or Contributor ? From the Codex, http://codex.wordpress.org/, you find:
Author – Somebody who can publish and manage their own posts
Contributor – Somebody who can write and manage their posts but not publish posts
The difference being whether the person can publish their posts or not.
