I know that with all the different rafflecopters and contests, I have started to follow a lot of fun people. But I need to take this one step farther and change the setting on my blog to show which blogs I've just added.
Once I've changed that setting, their new posts will show up on my blog so I can go and check them out!
Would you like to know how to do this? I know I have forgotten to do this and I suspect that some of you have too.
So here are the steps that I follow to do this. . . (if you have a better way, I'd love to hear about it!)
Go to your main screen in Blogger. Click on the words LAY OUT on the left hand side.
Find the words MY BLOG LIST and click on that.
Click the words MOST RECENTLY UPDATED.
Click ADD TO LIST.
Be sure the circle is filled in that says BLOGS I'M FOLLOWING.
Now in this spot you have some choices. Think about what you want to show on your blog. Do you want all the blogs to show that you follow or do you just want your favorites?
If you want to have ALL of them show up, click the words ALL. If you want NONE of them to show up, go ahead and click NONE. (but then YOU will never be able to see the new things that others are posting!)
If you want to hand pick the ones that you want to show up, you can individually check each box beside the name of the blogs you want to show up.
Now you are almost done.
Click the word ADD.
And then finally, click SAVE!
That's it! Now you have a new and updated list of blogs that you like to follow or that you have just signed up to follow.
That's pretty easy isn't it? Now each time you open your blog, you will see all of your new friends each time they post a message. How fun is that?
And just for fun and to make this post a little less technical and a little more homey. .. this is my daughter and I when we visited South Haven, Michigan this week. South Haven is on Lake Michigan and is oh so breath takingly beautiful!
So is my daughter (I'm not biased or anything!)
She lives in Houston and teaches in Pasadena.
I had to take her back
to the airport last night. (boo hoo!)
However, on Sunday we are driving with her husband back to Houston for some extra time with them.
So I'm not really that sad . .. yet!
Thanks for stopping by!
