Thanks Chantel!


She pointed something out with my Blogger FYI instructions that might be boggling some of you as well.

She told me that her New Post screen doesn't look the same as mine! And I was like, "I know why!" and it only took me about 5 minutes of clicking on every possible link on the Dashboard to find what I was looking for! Yay!

Essentially, the "problem" is such. Awhile back, Blogger added a bunch of features and we all started calling it the *new Blogger. At the time, when you logged in, it might have prompted you to switch, or asked you if you wanted to switch. After awhile, it stopped prompting you and hid the update within the Settings tab.

I recommend you make the switch. The new post editor is much easier to use than that silly old one!

Step One: Log into your Blog account, and click on the Settings tab/link on your Dashboard.

******************


Step Two: Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and you'll find this...

You want to change the top part from "Old Editor" to "Updated Editor". Click on the little circle beside "Updated Editor" so it moves the blue dot from "Old" to "New"...I put this part into my instructions because DJ would ask where to click if I was explaining this to her...so...

******************

Step Three: Click "Save Settings"

Shazzam!

And now you can continue on with notladylike's Blogger FYI.
