2013 WRITE: BLOG: Tech info for collaborative blogging on Blogspot

Tech info for collaborative blogging 
on Blogger 
-

-
Getting started with Blogspot/Blogger
If you already have a Google account (gmail, for example, open it and search for Blogger). Otherwise, do a standard search for Blogger. You will have to create an account. You can use the same account for multiple Google services if you want to use just one password.
-
You may want to get Feedly at the same time -- a useful resource for content.
-
The following items are answers to questions you will probably have in setting up a blog.  For other actions you will probably not have questions.
-
Start: From Dashboard
Settings tab  -- Basic subtab
Select post editor: Use updated editor.  Has a few bugs, but important benefits
-
Link to other blogs
Design  --  Add and Arrange Page Elements  -Link List -- read instructions to configure
-
Alllow feeds (RSS):
Settings | Site Feed tab.  Allow Blog Feeds  -- Full
-
Facebook buttons, etc
go into your blog designer, select "design." Then, on "blog posts" select "edit." It will bring up a dialogue box that allows you to check "show share buttons."

Comments:  Best allow these with some restrictions.  If you get a lot of readers, you will probably need to block anonymous comments and require your approval, at least for older posts. 
-
Set time zone
Settings -- Formatting -- Time zone
This apparently sets the time zone for scheduled publications.  My Virtual Outworlding is set to Second Life time
