    Default Starting a blog...

    Hi! I would like to start a blog, but I can't seem to figure out how. Forgive me if this has been asked already, but could someone walk me though the process? If there is an existing thread about this, just post a link as I searched but did not find exactly what I was looking for. TIA!

    I think all you have to do is click 'blogs' in the menu on the top, then there will be a menu on the left to start making posts and for your blog control panel so you can customize your settings for privacy and such. I honestly don't remember if that was all there was to it or not (I'm multi-tasking at the moment and can't really concentrate lol) but I am pretty sure that's all there is to it.

    When I do that, this page comes up, and when I hit save it brings me right back to this same page. Did I just not plug something in one of these boxes that I am supposed to?

    On that screen there should be an option in the menu on the left for "your blog", then you can start your blog posts from there. The "post to your blog" link should also be on the main blogs page.

    OK! That worked! Thanks for the help! I know I must seem like a real live NINNY not being able to figure that out, but well, what can you do! Anyway, Thanks for the help Feisty Redhead!

    Glad to have helped, Mary! I'm sure there were others wondering too but didn't want to ask. And trust me, if I told you about some of the things I've had trouble figuring out, you'd be able to laugh for at least a week over my 'Jessica Simpson"-esque moments! lol
