3.) Writing the Report.

A report consists of a few mandatory things; history, a little bit about the explore on the day and some photos. See Survival Guide for more info.

This is a excellent example of a first Report.

This would also be a good time to have a look at the Noteworthy Reports section to see some really amazing ones.
