  1. 1. Dashboard Theme Post Page Comments Sidebar Widget Plugins RSS
  2. 2.  Dashboard – This is the back-end area of your blog where you make changes and edits. This area is not seen by the public and only accessible to blog administrators, editors, or contributors.  Theme - Usually one of the first things bloggers do is pick out a theme. This is the template or look of the blog which helps give it a personal touch.  Post - Posts are the basic entry in blogs. Usually in reverse chronological order.  Page - Pages are similar to posts, but are best for “static” content which you want to always be accessible and doesn’t change to often.  Comments – Users can reply to what you write, leave links or comments, and create a general discussion. You can turn on and off comments on individual posts and pages in your blog’s dashboard.
  3. 3.  Sidebar - The location and even existence of sidebars depend on your theme. Some themes even have 3 or more sidebars. You can add and rearrange widgets in your sidebars in your blog’s dashboard.  Widget - These are the blocks that make up sidebars. Popular widgets include the ability to subscribe to a blog, user statistics, and suggested links.  Plugins – Plugins are extended features that you can turn on and off on your blog. Popular plugins include form creation, facebook and twitter connections, and calendars.  RSS - RSS stands for “Really Simple Syndication” which is a way for people to use RSS Readers to subscribe to and follow your blog. For all Edublogs, the rss feed is found by going to yourblog.edublogs.org/feed.
