  • You will be asked to give your blog a title and a web address.

  • In the title, you can give the blog a descriptive, but short name. Your blog name should indicate its purpose and semester.
    • For example, you can call it, My Reflective Journals - Semester 2, 2014.
  • In the Address, use a name that is easy to remember. It also has to be unique.
  • Once you have created the blog, you can set many different options including the template and side bar.
  • Many of the settings can be left as default. However, you should look over them to be familiar with the privacy settings.
  • Please note - the proxy server at the college may prevent you from creating a blog. You may have to repeat this process at home.


Post by Email

You can create a post for your blog via email from your smart phone or tablet if you so desire. You can also insert an image or two via email as well.


  • Click on SETTINGS and then click on Mobile and Email

  • You can create an email address to which you can send your posts from your phone.
    • Add a word in the email box. It should be something easy to remember.
    • Then, add the email address to your phone contacts. Call the new contact, Blogger.
    • Test it by taking a photo with your phone and then emailing it to the blog.
    • The subject of the email will be the title of the post. Any words you type into the message box will appear in the body of the post.
