Well, to all of you out there attempting to work on the Learning 2.0 at PVLD, congratulations! You are on your way to advancing in skills of new technologies. You also have the chance to win some pretty nifty prizes.
I am attempting this for the second time, as I already have a family blog which I created on e-blogger.
What I found to be difficult, was using the new e-blogger. First of all, I did not know that it was called e-blogger. I just thought it was blogger.com, and I know from being around the library and seeing other people's blogs from PVLD, that this is the one: www.blogger.com. It is now under the operation of google, and I find the new site easier and quicker to use. But despite this ease of use, I noticed that it is a little difficult to create an account if you don't already have a google account. I had this problem with my family blog when I switched over to the new blogger at google. What I discovered is that I can and could, by going to a few links, just use another email address and create a google account with that address. I went to a link to create a google account with my email, was able to get an email from google, and click on a link which created my account. I still don't know how my account at google works or what I can do with it, but I know I have access to my blog.
Also, I chose to use a simple blog. Basically, I just chose a template and did not change anything about the settings. I feel that I could change this at some point if I want; but, right now, for the task of doing a trial run, I don't feel it's necessary.
Moving on to task #3.
