We're not going to walk you through the steps of setting up your Blogger.com account and creating the blog because Google does a wonderful job of doing that. However, we are going to give you a few pointers to help to integrate your blog with your website.
When we setup our blogger.com account, we didn't want the Internet address to be at the blogger.com domain name because we want our visitors to know the DomainNameSanity.com domain name. Blogger makes that very simple. Therefore the first thing we did was to go to "design" and then "settings" and set the "Publishing Blog Address" as "blog.domainnamesanity.com". If you're a DomainNameSanity.com client, we'd be happy to setup that redirect for you. Blogger will give you two CNAME records that need to be setup. Just send those to us. Once it's setup, you'll create a link on your website to the blog page.
The next important item is to link back to your website from your Blog. We wanted a horizontal navigation that was below the page "header" (which is the most common navigation method). Blogger has a series of Gadgets that you can add to your blog. One of them is called "Link List". You will "Configure Link List" as follows:
This entire process took us about 2 hours to setup including getting the colors the way we wanted it and researching all of the steps above. Hopefully, these steps will help you get the job done quicker. We'd appreciate your feedback on this article, your Liking us on Facebook and giving us ideas for future articles.Thank you.
