Create your blog

You will be using Blogger to create your blog.  The main purpose of your blog is to be a learning journal for the AAT Study Skills unit, but you also might want to use it for your own personal use, either now or later.   It is yours for ever so think carefully about what you are going to call the blog, then go to and create it!

You can follow the instructions in this link which are from the Blogger Help Centre.  You can get to these instructions again at any time by scrolling down to the bottom of the main dashboard page.
Tip: When you are following instructions on screen it can be easier to have the instructions open on one side of your screen, and the document you are working on open on the other side.
To snap the current window to the left side of the desktop press the Windows logo key and the Left Arrow.  Then open another Internet Explorer and snap it to the right side by pressing the Windows logo key +Right Arrow.

This video also shows you how to set up a blog from scratch.  It is 15 minutes long so you may want to come back to it later to look at some of the extra features. 

At this stage don't worry too much about the layout of the blog - you can make any changes to personalise it later.
