Intro to Blogger
This tutorial (hopefully) comes as a handy guide for starting off on Blogger, a site that some on Wrealms use as a helpful aid to their writing. Whether you are using it to customize profiles for multiple characters, create a side page to tell more about an aspect of your character, or so on, this should aid you in getting started and making the most out of the customization they have there.
When you choose to 'get started' on blogger, the welcome page will look something similar to this. Note- you will need a gmail account to use this application, but with one gmail you will be able to make multiple 'pages' with different styles. Choose 'Blogger Profile' in order to continue.
Welcome to your shiny new Blogger account. Multiple blogs can be hosted on one email account, and with each blog, they can have a different theme and layout. If you are making character bios, for example, you could set up a blog for each character. Hit 'Create New Blog' to continue.
When you choose to create a new blog, it will prompt you with a window for setting up the basics. Give your blog a name, and how you wish the URL to appear. Choose a basic theme to start on- I tend to choose 'Travel', but feel free to explore the other options.
Now, you reach your dashboard. This is the behind the scenes view where blog posts can be edited and created. The red squiggled line represents where blog postings will be listed chronologically as they are created. Click on 'Layout' in order to add or remove some functions to clean up your blog's appearance.
As you scroll down, after the Nav bar and Header, the main page is depicted as well as other options such as 'About Me' and 'Blog Archive'. If you want to clean up your blog to only show as a single, clean column, this is where you can take those portions out to do so. Once again, this is my own preferences. Feel free to play with your settings independently.
If you click on the Advanced tab, the options for fonts, color, background colors, link colors, and so on are visible. Feel free to click through those and make adjustments that will suit the theme you are going for.
This will prompt you through the startup just like it had for your first blog.
