|Now that you have your first post to your BloggerTM weblog, it is time to work on the surrounding areas on your blog webpage. Letís start with your profile. On your weblog page, there is a View My Complete Profile link in the upper right corner. This link will take your readers to your profile page. In this tutorial, we will set up the information that you wish to appear on this page. Go to the Dashboard and click on Edit Profile to open the Edit User Profile page. There you will find eight sections. |
Next, you have the option to display the real name and email address that you gave when you created your Blogger account. Place a checkmark in these boxes. If you have more than one blog, you might want some or all of them to be listed in your profile. Click on the Select blogs to display link to see a list of all the blogs you have created under this account. Choose the blogs from your list that you wish to be listed on your profile. Audio Clip URL input box works much the same way as the Photo URL.
When this information is displayed, each item in these lists become links. For example, if you listed football as one of your interests, this will become a link on your profile page that will lead to a list of other bloggers who also listed football as an interest. This is a quick way for people with the same interests as yours to find your blog.
When youíre finished with the form, click the SAVE PROFILE button. When the page reloads, you will see a message saying that your settings have been saved. Click on the View Updated Profile link to verify that all went well.
