How to create a blog

In this site you will find an explanation by Vance Stevens, EFL teacher in South Arabia and creator of Webheads in Action, on how to create and set up a blog at blogger. If you prefer to watch a video, here is one that is quite simple. Here are more instructions in case you want to change your blog layout.

Come by my office next Tuesday or send me an email in case of doubts or if you need further guidance.
Best of luck.

How to write comments in this blog

1) Click in the word that says "comment" at the bottom of the post you want to write a comment about. A new window will open, like the one in the illustration on the left.

2) there will be three options: a) "Google/blogger" account, b) "Other" or, c) "Anonymous". I suggest you select the second alternative, write your name in the provided space and make the comment. If you select "anonymous", write your name at the end of the comment so we know who you are. Don´t forget to write the green characters that appear for "word verification" and click "publish your comment" before you close the window.
