Tech Tuesday: New Blogger Features

If you use Blogger as your blogging platform, have you checked out some of the new features in your settings and layout tabs?

There is a new post editing option that has more features for editing your posts, such as uploading a batch of photos at one time, rather than one by one. Though I will say it takes some time to get used to, since images are stored in a "bank" and you can drag them anywhere in the post rather than having them appear just at the top. Under the Settings tab, click on "Basic settings" and then scroll down the page to "Global Settings". Select the "Updated Editor" option and save your settings. Now when you go to a new post, you'll have an updated screen.

Also, if you're interested in making money off of ads on your blog, check out the Monetize tab. I had looked at this probably a year ago, but recently checked it out again and saw that there are a lot more options, including signing up for the Amazon Associates program where you can install an Amazon widget (there are tons available) in your sidebar and make a commission off of it when people buy something via that link. I'm looking into adding this soon, especially since you can customize it to reflect topics that your blog already covers.

Just wanted to pass along these finds, and who knows, you might already be using them! I'm a bit late in discovering some of these new features. Happy Tuesday friends!

Great tip with the Updated Editor. I used to hate adding photos - can't wait to try the new one tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday.
