  1. Give your blog entry a title in the Title field.
  2. You can include a picture by selecting the Insert / Edit Image icon.
  3. Select who can see your blog entry:
    • Only site administrators and I can see this entry: only instructors and teaching assistants will be able to see your blog entry.
    • All members of this site can see this entry: everyone associated with the course or project site will be able to see the entry, but no one else. 
    • This entry is publicly viewable: anyone can see your blog entry, if they have the web address (URL) for it. However, it is not easy for people to find a web address unless you tell them what it is!
  4. To publish the entry, select the Publish entry button.

Note: Depending on settings, teaching / administrative staff may be able to add entries to other people’s blogs.
