Lesson 2 –The Layout of Your Blog

I am completing a five day course on setting up a simple blog.  I will begin on May 4, 2015 – May 8, 2015 and the broadcast will be on Blog Talk Radio which you can access by dialing 347-989-0356 at 5:00 pm Central standard time/4:00 pm Eastern Time.  I will also post each episode to my two blogs daily after the show on and  Question daily can be posted on either blog via comments and I will answer as quickly as possible.  If you feel that one-on- one training is better for you then you can order Blogging Lessons from via PayPal.  I will need a solid 2 hours but will work with your schedule.  I am on Facebook at
Lesson 2 –The Layout of Your Blog

1.     Now that you have a blog with a title, web address, and template, we want to work on your layout.  Log into your blog using your Gmail account and select the nine squares next to your name and go to more and click on Blogger. 

2.     Once you have signed in.  Look on the left side and you should see my blogs and select your blog.  You will see layout which you will click.  Here is a screen shot. 

3.     The layout will be based on your template.  You can change your template if you would like at anytime by clicking on template.  I changed mine several times based on my layout and gadgets that I liked.

4.     Now you can be creative with the layout.  Once we click the layout link, we will click the add a gadget link that’s on the right side of the page.  There are several options to choose from but these are the ones that I recommend:

A.   +1 button so visitors can recommend your site content
B.    Google + Followers
C.    Translate
D.   Pages
E.    Google Adsense
F.    Html/Javascritp you can add content but we discuss this more later
G.   Link list which shows the blogs and website you like
H.   Blog list I list all my blogs here

                The list goes on and on so choose some and have fun.  Tomorrow for Lesson 3 we will discuss earning with your blog.  I will add this information to my two blogs on and  As always you can leave your questions as a comment on either blog and I will answer them quickly.
