The Anatomy Of A Blog

the anatomy of a blog
A blog tend to have very distinct elements that follow a typical order, unlikes websites, which can be unpredictable with regards to content and structure. That means, a blog contains posts, which might or might not allow for comments, and these posts are displayed with the most recent post at the beginning of the index page. Additionally, blog templates are often put together so that the display contains a sidebar column into which the blog author can put lists of links, affiliations, and other information pertinent to the author or his blog.

The general structural elements of a blogs

All blogs have a title that is displayed prominently at the top of the blog main page as well as subsequent blog archive pages. The next is the posting date, followed by the title of the individual post along with the content of the post. The footer area of the post, where the posting time is usually displayed, the post author's name is important when posting to a group blog because readers will want to know exactly which member of the group blog posted this particular bit of content.

General structure of a blog

The blog comments provide an outlet for users to weigh in on posts you've written, to offer alternative perspectives on situations, or to tell anecdotes that might offer guidance in some situations.

The final element  is the sidebar. Blog templates, especially the stock Blogger templates, almost always have a side column built into them, for the placement of author information, blogrolls, popular post, recent post and other links of interest to the author.

Creating a New Blog with Blogger

Before you can create blog with blogger, the first step you must have a google account, go to google account signup. Because now google enforces one account for all google services, the account can be used for both the blogger, gmail, and others.

  1. Enter a first and last name. In Blogger, you can blog under this name, or another display name (this choice will appear later in the signup process)
  2. Enter username
    Username is the same as your email address for extension . Gmail.com. You can enter as complete username as “johneboy.gmail.com” or just the front “johneboy”
  3. Enter/Retype Your Password
    Think up a password that is at least eight characters long, and type it in the Enter a Password field. Although you're not protecting sensitive financial information, it's still a good idea to choose a good password. For instance, try to include punctuation or special characters such as an exclamation point or a pound sign, as well as numbers and a mix of uppercase and lowercase letters. You should be able to remember your password but it shouldn't be a common dictionary word, your birthday, phone number, or any other phrase that would be easy to guess. After typing the password in the Enter a Password field, retype it in the Retype Password field. Don’t use a password from another site, or something too obvious like your pet’s name.
