Start Blogging with Blogger - Managing Your Blog
(Page 4 of 4 )
Your Dashboard gives you lots of management options if you want to re-label, delete, modify or create posts for your pages. Here, you’ll see a list of all your posts (listed by title). On the left-hand side, all your labels will help you see exactly how many posts you have with each topic you’ve created for your blog. It’s that easy to see the name of each post and to see which ones have been published live to your blog. When Draft appears next to the date, you’ll know these posts are currently unpublished.
Need to make changes, add or remove labels or write a new post? This is where you’ll do it all. Select the Posting tab at the top to view your posts. You’ll also have access to your comments through the Posting section, which helps you allow or disallow commenting or even edit and delete comments which have already been created by your visitors.
The Settings tab allows you to change the title and description of your blog at any time. This not only helps readers learn more about your blog, but the description also serves as your META information for the search engines. You can also choose “yes” or “no” from drop-down menus that make your site viewable to others and visible to the search engines. The Layout option helps you organize the look of your blog and add new gadgets that add a lot more depth and options for your readers.
Through the Monetize tab, you can choose options that help you take advantage of Google AdSense. Since Google owns Blogger, once you have a Blogger account you also have an account with Google. This makes it incredibly easy to take advantage of Google options and extras, like AdSense, which can create revenue for you and add more depth to your blog.
Blogger is popular because it’s user-friendly and extremely easy to use. If you use any of Google’s services, and have an account with Google, there’s no reason you shouldn’t start using your free Blogger blog right away.
