Making a post on your own blog and telling Purple Coo about it

When you are in your own blog, in the top right corner you will see your email address and next to it a link for Dashboard; click on Dashboard and it will take you to a page similar to the one below (which is only a part of that resulting Dashboard page):

This Dashboard shows you what blogs you have the rights to post on. (If you click on the picture it will take you to a larger size, where, hopefully, you can actually read what I've written.) If it doesn't, the first comment, in red, is, this will be the title of your own blog. The second comment is, this is where you click to post a new blog on your own blog page.

If you want to write a blog on your own blog page, click on the green + sign and New Post listed for your own blog page and you will be taken to where you can write a Post (for which read a new posting), which will appear to everyone else who visits your site as a blog, because it will be a posting you have made on your own site.

Then, having written and posted that, you can go to the coochat.blogspot site and announce, by making a comment on the single post on that site, that you've blogged.

Thank you Jackofall for taking the time to put up Camilla especially for me, what an absolute whiz you are. Have only been on this computer lark for about 18 months now, but have read your message, and have done a blog, and announced that I have blogged. Fingers crossed. Could you please keep CAMILLA up for me, just in case my head goes completely bonkers again, thank you.

Thought for a wild moment it was ME - I always do, I'm only Milla on here, because CAMILLA nabbed "our" name first! I am very imporessed by your clear instructions and that you can recreate those little boxes and then superimpose red detail on as well. Giddy with wonder. And I'll still get it wrong!

Thank you thank you thank you. I have been trying to find the page on which to post the 'I've blogged' message and couldn' find it. I thought I must be going mad - everyone said "It's on the right" but I'd look and there'd just be the ever-reorganizing list of names. I couldn't even find the tech help link to ask Janitor for aid. Anyway I clicked on you link and all was revealed! Merci.
