A little reminder about blogging

As we hit the half way point I just wanted to give you a little reminder about blogging. For us to be able to keep track of your progress on the programme we need you to blog about each and every thing. You can write individual posts for each thing, or one post on all the things from one week - it's up to you.

The best way to help us, especially if you're writing one post covering multiple things, is to label, or tag, your posts. To do this enter your tags into the Labels box that at the bottom of every new post e.g. thing 1, thing 2 etc.

If you want to go one step further you can also add the labels to the sidebar of your blog (like we have done here). To do this follow the steps below:

  • From your blog's dashboard choose the 'Design' tab
  • Click the 'Add a gadget' link in the sidebar
  • In the basics list you will find 'Labels'. Add this and then choose how you want your labels to sort and display in your blog's sidebar.
  • Finally, and most importantly click 'Save'
  • Back on the Design tab you will also need to click 'Save'
  • Check your blog to see that your labels are displayed as you wanted.
