Beginning Your Blog

Hey jammers, I've been getting a lot of questions on how to begin a blog, and I think the subject deserves a post! You see, it's quite easy to start a blog, the hard part is making it look Animal Jam-ish and continuing blogging. To start you blog on blogger you first need to get a gmail account.
Next go to any blog (maybe log out first?) and click on "Create Blog" in the top right hand corner.
Fill out the info on that page, and be sure to name your blog what you want!
Now you get to design your blog, template designer is the most useful tool. Be sure to visit the Newspaper Archive mini blog for backgrounds and banner pictures.
Make sure you have a good amount of contrast between the font and the blog background so the font can be read, the same goes for the style of the font, it should be legible. As for screenshots, here is a link to the steps explained my AJHQ. I also know that for Macs command+shift+4 work as well. I hope this helps jammers, good luck bloggers!

Note: Thank you for the plushie ahoy10!

    I can tell you how to put pictures on your post, if that's what you mean.
    To put pictures, when writing a post, at the top, there's all these tools, click the one in between the "Link" and the one that looks like a movie clicker, or, whatever those things are called. It looks like a photo of some sort of landscape, click it, click choose file, and choose a picture from your computer!
    Hope this helped. :)

  19. I'm not positive about PCs, but I think there's a button on the top right corner of the keyboard that says something like "screen shot". I looked up a guide a while back for it, so I hope that helped some.

  20. snowy i just got banned for 1 day cuz i went to some1ns den and they said it was a specail room and he reported me like 50 times! :( how would i know?i might neever ever play aj again now!~aurorakismet9

  21. oooh no! don't get ME talking. i will end up blabbing FOREVER! animals~ swan (nonmember), hawk (member), blowfish, snake, kitten, monerator lizard, wolverine, DRAGON (yes! yes! yes!!!), and wild horses!
    Lands~ now this ties into my swan idea along with the croc. what if the new land was some form of swamp were only animals that can swim *ocean pets, crocs, and swans* could go. and aother is my hawk/dragon idea. what if there was some form of cloud land were only FLYING animals could go. and also i might as well resuggest my idea for new ACTIONS. such as the 'leap' button. my idea is, you would click on actions, click on 'leap or jump' and then a small target were you're cursor moved would appear. then you would click somewere, thus setting the target (wich only you can see) and your animal would jump there, dash there, fly there, Ect. i hope my ideas arnt to much and that you are not yet bleeding from the ears. your blog fan, and friend

  23. Also to screenshot on a laptop you have to click PrtSc/SysRq then open up Paint and paste it on and then edit it. Then save the picture and you can upload it onto your blog!
