    Can I set up my blog so that anyone could be an author--anyone could register themselves as an author? Or, is that totally a manual process and only the Users can self-register? Thanks.

    You can set it up where anyone can register, but they will start off as Level 1 until you promote them or unless you select the option to allow newly registered members to publish articles.

    In your General Options there should be this:

    Membership:
    Anyone can register
    Users must be registered and logged in to comment

    Just put a check mark in the box next to "Anyone can register".

    Under Writing Options you'll see this:

    Newly registered members:
    Cannot write articles
    May submit drafts for review
    May publish articles

    Check "May publish articles".
