Ravelry - HELP

Well I have been spending time while in the shop looking at Ravelry I am learning very slowly, I might add, I think I need Lucy to help me, or anyone who knows, eg what does blog posts from member projects mean and how do I get my blog posts on there.
When it say projects queued, stashed, fav,.....when I see a pattern that I like how do I get that up on my projects...or whatever,

Does anybody understand what I mean,
I think I am a lost cause.
