geeky think #18 – blogging…how to start

I realized that I never actually posted exactly how to get started blogging.

Step by step on how to blog:
  • Log into 
  • Sign up.
  • Write down or save your URL, so that you can bookmark it later for ease of use.
  • Chose your template
  • Click on the settings tab and go through each tab, deciding on what your want to do.
  • (If you go away, and come back later, you might need to “sign in” type in your blogger URL in the upper right corner)
  • Click on make “new entry”.
  • Start typing away.  I have found that cut and paste from a word doc is frustrating (too hard to explain – but try it and see, if you dare).
  • When you finish, click “post” or “save draft” if you aren’t done. 
  • To return to a draft, click on the “posting” tab, then “edit post”.  Then click on the word “edit” by your desired post.  It will return you to the composition, finish it, then click “post”

It is good practice to always create your tags.  Pick out words that you would think that someone would use in a search to find your entry.

To edit an already posted entry – under the post, you will see a pencil icon.  Click on that and it will return you to the composition section.

When you are logged in, you will see editing tools that others cannot see.  These are things that you can mess with as far as adding other elements.  (ex. If you had a flickr site, we could have a slideshow of selected images.  See geeky things )
