Introduction to Blogging

Why we blog and how we do it.


What is blogging l.jpg
What is Blogging?

A frequent, chronological publication of personal

thoughts and Web links.

A blog is often a mixture of what is happening in a

person's life and what is happening on the Web, a

kind of hybrid diary/guide site, although there are as

many unique types of blogs as there are people.

Blogs are alternatively called web logs or weblogs .

However, "blog" seems less likely to cause confusion,

as "web log" can also mean a server's log files.

Why blog l.jpg
Why blog?

We blog for many different reasons,

including:

  • Personal journals: recording events in our own lives

  • Political and social commentary: sharing personal opinions on global issues

  • Building Community: reaching out to others who share our views, interests or careers

How do we blog l.jpg
How do we blog?

We create a create a blog using

blogger.com, name it and begin posting.

The following slides will guide you in

setting up your blog.


Slide5 l.jpg

If you want to start a Blogger blog for

free there are some very simple steps.

Step one is going to www.blogger.com.

From there it is all pretty simple so I

will just walk you through the screens

with the aid of the following screen

captures.


Slide6 l.jpg

When you arrive at blogger, you see

that there are three steps: 1.) create an

account, 2.) name your blog, and 3.)

choose a template. It’s that simple and

easy. Your blog address will end up in

the http://yourchosenblog.blogspot.com

format.


Slide8 l.jpg

An account will only require a working

email, a unique user name, and a

unique blog address. In this instance, I

used anticsgirl as my user name and

chose to put my real name, Marcia, in

the display name, but this is up to you.

Then click continue.


Slide10 l.jpg

Next, you need to choose the title of your

blog. I chose Dubious Dispatches as my title.

I also chose the blog address of anticsgirl

which results in the URL to my blog-in-the

making to be:

http://anticsgirl.blogspot.com.

In order to make sure that you are in fact a

human blogger, (rather than an automated

system which is phishing) you will need to

verify the wacky words in green. When

you’re finished, pass over the advanced

setup, and click continue.


Slide12 l.jpg

Next, you need to choose an initial

look-and-feel, called the template. I

chose the Minima template by selecting

its corresponding radio button. Then

click continue.


Slide14 l.jpg

Then Blogger tells you what its progress is

and should reward you with a start posting

arrow.


Slide16 l.jpg

The first thing you will see it a rich text

editor, also known as a WYSIWYG editor.

This should emulate your experience with

Word, Wordperfect, and your webmail

experience.

The rich text editor allows you to blog and

link and italicize with abandon — without

knowing any HTML (although if you look

closely you will see that there is an Edit

HTML choice). When you finish with your

post (and feel free to play around a lot) you

can click Publish Post.



Slide19 l.jpg

And when you are done, you can click

on the View Blog button and…

And that is it. You have just created a blog and published your first blog post.
