+I want to learn how to use a text editor in addition to the web interface. I am stuck on pushing changes back to where they're supposed to go.
+
+I have done:
+
+    git clone Zoidwicky.git Zoidwicky.src
+
+and then, after editing sidebar.mdwn in that new Zoidwicky.src directory
+
+    git commit sidebar.mdwn
+
+Now I believe I must use git push to move that change to I am not sure where.
+
+I learn best by example. Would somone be good enough to post an example of what that 'git pugh" command might look like?
+
+Here are some samples of what I have tried:
+
+    $ git push sidebar.mdwn Zoidwicky.git
+    fatal: Invalid gitfile format: sidebar.mdwn
+
+    $ git push sidebar.mdwn /home/zoid/Zoidwicky.git/
+    fatal: remote part of refspec is not a valid name in   /home/zoidberg/Zoidwicky.git
