Whether you want to jump right in and start writing, or want to just try it out, here's how to get you up and running quickly.

Sign in to your new site. Once you are signed in a new menu will appear titled "My Blog".

blog menuWriting to your blog:

Go to My Blog >> Write New Post

Select the category you want the new post to appear in. We've created a starting category for you. Enter the blog title, and write to your heart's content. You can format your text using the text editor toolbar which looks similar to any word processing software toolbar. If you're not sure what an icon does, hover your mouse over it and a popup will tell you what it does.
Note of caution: If you are taking a long time to write, you might want to go up to the top every so often and click save as draft.

save draftAdd Photo

To add a photo to your blog, locate the image icon in the text editor toolbar and click browse to locate the photograph you want to add. If you want the image to wrap around your text, click align left or right. You can also add a caption now if you like. Save and your photo is now included in your post.

Below the text box there are other options, but none are required to get started. Once you are finished writing, scroll to the top of the page and click on the [Publish Now] button.

 

That's really all that's required to start blogging, however there are some more tips to help you administrate your blog.

Creative Developer , Web Designer and All Around Geek


April has such a passion for technical innovation and graphic design, we swear she'd be designing web pages even if she didn't get paid. Back in the mid-80s, she convinced us to switch our entire production department to personal computers when the Macintosh was just a gleam in Steve Job's eye. An award-winning journalist who ventured into the self-publishing field, she was enlisted by several print and publishing groups to train graphic designers on the value of the personal computer. She was present for what became known as the desktop publishing revolution. Always eager to learn, she traded her technical knowledge with the talents of graphic designers and became a sought-after graphic designer. Still not satisfied, April caught the wave of web design launching websites back when a telephone line was required to get on the internet. Since then, she's been keeping us on the fast-track to internet technologies. Her guiding theme: "If a customer needs it, I can figure out how to do it, and how to make it easily accessible for the client."
