CUSTOMIZE YOUR BLOG

Now that you have a blog, customize it. Some of you have already done this but for others, it’s time to take charge.

Come up with a Title. Having a name like “Student123’s Blog” reminds me of George Orwell’s novel 1984, or George Lucas’ THX1138 — where people were numbered. Your blog should be more personal.

Your blog account name and your blog title name do not have to be the same. Here’s how to change the blog title.

Open your dashboard. One the left, scroll down untiel you find SETTINGS and click on GENERAL. The screen there will enable you to rename your blog to something that, hopefully, headlines what you want to do. Also, add a tag line to provide a bit more information.

Be sure to click SAVE CHANGES at the bottom of the screen to save your new settings.

One final item will complete the customization — add an image. Find an image you like and have it ready, preferable in JPEG format, though others will work.

While you are still on the settings page, under the heading BLOG PICTURE, click browse and locate your image. Then click UPLOAD. Another page will open where you can crop or size rthe image to your liking. When complete, click SAVE or UPDATE.
