How to use Blogger


Blogger was the first blogging software I used.

Creating a Blogger account

The first job is to create a google (or gmail account). If you already have a gmail account all you need to do is sign in, otherwise you'll have to follow the new account procedures.

Then you work through the process of setting up your blog.

This is the website address to use.

Notice that there's a section that invites you to go on a tour of blogging. When you are ready click on the arrow that says "Create your blog now"

The first step is simply to either create a new account or log into your gmail/google account. Then you are presented with this page. Enter your title, the address (note that this can be totally different to what your title is), the word verification and click on continue.

You'll then be asked to choose which template you'd like to use. If you don't choose any, then your blog will appear with the default one. These can be changed at any time. Once you've made your choice, click on "Continue."

The next screen will tell you that you've successfully created your blog. Click on "Start Posting" in order to make your first post.

Enter a title for your post and then click into the main body area and write your first post. When you've finished click on "Publish."

Congratulations! You've just made your first blog post.

Once you've done that, feel free to explore around the different things you can do in Blogger.
