I have a question...

So, I'm trying to get a blog going with the Smith family that would work like the Watson one. It's slow to take off, but I'm still hopeful. My question is this: how do I add people who can post to the blog? In the beginning I was able to add people, but now I can't find where to do that. Suggestions?

Thanks!

Up on the right choose customize, then on the left choose settings, and then permissions. Then you can choose "add authors."

Then you can make it really easy. I think it helped our blog get going that I set up something that e-mailed to tell people when there was a new post. They way I did that was kind of complicated, and there is an easier way now. (I think!)

You can set up an account with feedblitz.com. Once you've set up an account, put your curser over the tab "solutions" and then go 2/3 of the way down and choose "bloggers." Then go all the way to the bottom and choose the highlighted text that says "Add widgets to your site." This will take you back to your blog page and will put a new gadget on your page. I just put one on mine (top right) if you want to see what I'm talking about.... Ask if you have more questions and I'll try to see if I have more answers!

Maybe I'll add this to this blog, although it has to work differently if there's password protection....

A big thank you to you! I'm not very blogger savvy. You saved me much time and frustration!

You're definitely my new blog resource. :)

I started a Pace family blog. I thought they would be so happy since they are all super computer savey. I mean, a couple have computer based businesses, etc etc. . .but NOOOOOOOOO. They did not get the joy of being able to know what each other are thinking every day like we do. Poo.
