  • Create A Great Blog Blogs are being used for many things: 1. Book review blogs are all the rage 2. Writing blogs can be helpful 3. Informational blogs 4. There are also personal diary blogs And many more that I can't even think of
  • Choose Your Blog Site
      There are a variety of sites that hosts blogs
    • Blogger (is free and what I use)
    • Wordpress (also free)
    • You can purchase your own domain name
    • Find others by doing a google search
  • Make It Your Own
      Since I use blogger, I will be using that as a reference.
    • You can use the free layouts at the site (I don't like these because they are boring and so many people use them that they aren't special)
    • Get free layouts from Pyzam or other sites
  • How To Add Layout
      If you got your layout from Pyzam or somewhere else, copy the html code
    • On blogger, go to Design and erase the html code that is there.
    • Paste the new code
    • Save it
  • Posting
      You need to know what your blog is about before posting. Unless your blog is about nothing like the Seinfeld show.
    • From Dashboard go to New Posts
    • Write what you want to write
    • Save
    • Check the post to make sure it's okay
  • Add Pages

    • Check my blog here:
  • Grab My Button
      Have you seen these cute little buttons on other blogs? Check my blog. I have a cute little cat on mine. You can copy the code beneath the button, go to your Add a Gadget on your design page, and copy the code into the html gadget box. Then you'll have one too.
  • Make Your Own Button
      To make a button for yourself, you need to use Gimp or Photoshop or something like it. The button should be 125 x 125. What do you use for a picture? I used my cat, but you can buy a cheap photo stock picture online. You will need to save it on Photobucket or somewhere like it.
      Then you need to copy this into the html gadget:
