Start Blogging with Blogger - Organize Your Blogger Posts With Feeds
(Page 3 of 4 )
Blogger uses labels to categorize your posts, so all your readers have to do is click on one of these words to find every post on a single topic. You can also use these labels to organize the look of the main page of your blog. Place feeds that will help users subscribe to your blog even as they help improve the look of your blog pages.
For instance, say your blog is about search engine optimization -- a popular topic on the Web. Your labels include the words Keywords, Links and Headlines. The labels section will show which words you use to categorize posts, but adding feeds will actually show the posts which are related to every single label.
Now…how do you do it?
To start adding feeds to your blog, select Layout from your Dashboard. Click the Add a Gadget link. A new pop-up will appear, offering a long list of possibilities for your blog. Select Feed. You’ll be taken to a screen with a blank text box. Simply enter the URL of each feed you’d like to add. To do this, go to your blog and click one of your labels -- in this case, Keywords. Copy the URL directly from your browser and place it in the box. Voila! Your feed has been created.
Want to beef up your blog? Blogger offers a lot more than just feeds. It’s time to explore many other gadgets.
Adding Blogger Gadgets
From the same Layout menu, you can add many more interesting elements to your blog. Again, select Gadgets and start exploring the possibilities. The menu will display options including a search button, polls, link lists, even AdSense ads that can help you earn income with your written words.
Use the search bar at the top of the Gadgets menu, or select options from the navigational menu on the left of pop-up, and start exploring your blog options. With gadgets, you can offer a little bit more to your readers.
