Publishing a Blog

1. Ensure you have a Gmail account. These accounts are free and will give you access to lots of cool Google tools! From google.com, click on Gmail and sign-up for a new account

2. Once you have a Google/Gmail account, go to blogger.com and sign-in with your Google/Gmail account. Once you are signed-in, you will be ready to create your blog!

This is the name that will appear to your peers when you leave comments on the class blog and their blogs! Don’t forget to accept the terms of service. 4.

(Blogger will automatically save your posts, but you can also choose to “publish post”, which means that it will be officially public domain!) 9. At this point, you can either create your first post, create a test post, or do not post at all. For future postings, you will go to blogger.com, sign-in, and then you should be taken to what Blogger calls your “dashboard”. It is here where you will see all of the blogs you have created. It is also from here where you can go back and edit or “manage” your past postings, or create a new post for your blog. 10. If you choose the New Post option, you will be taken to the interface that you saw in step 7. If you choose to manage your osts, you can edit them, view them, or even delete them!
