How to post a blog

If you are viewing this you are headed in the right direction. On the right hand column click the link to become a "follower" of this blog. If you have already created your account at www.blogspot.com, you will now need to sign in before you can post your comments or a new blog. Click the Sign In button at the upper right corner and enter your email address and the password you created. You will be taken to a page that says Dashboard. You will see the title Bethel Blog. Under that are several options including New Post, which is a blue tab. Click that, and you will go to a page that has a long skinny box for your title and a bigger box to type your comment or blog into. (If you wrote your blog post in another program you can copy it and paste it into the box.) When you are done placing your post in the box, you can click on preview (little blue box under the box you just typed in) to see what it will look like. If you like it, click the orange Publish Post button and it will be published on the page. You can use the toolbox at the top of the blog box to change font and color and you can also add links. Nothing too hard once you play with it a little. (NOTE:To read older posts, click on the Archive area on the right hand side.)

Hope that helps!
