Getting Started






With Blogger


This is a step by step to sign up/sign in and create your own blog. (Remember the pictures are just screen shots and you must be on the actual Blogger website - your screen should look like the pictures below)

For those that DO NOT have a Google Account you need to click on 'Get started'.
If you HAVE a Goole Account then sign in.

For those creating a Goolge Account just fill in the form on your screen - it will look like this

CLICK ON CREATE YOUR BLOG NOW
Now we should all be signed in and at the same page!

When choosing a name for your blog things you need to consider
  • Keep it simple
  • Keep it schoolwide (as in "schoolroom1@" or "room1school")
  • I have seen some schools have "1school2011" but I personally wouldn't want to be 'losing' my blog every year and then changing my address. (check out the blogroll over option to ensure children retain their valuable 'work')

I will now create a blog step by step with you and go through the editing options etc.
After this workshop I will also provide a 'step by step' pdf guide that you can share with collegues.
