Hi everyone,

Feel free to set up your own blog in addition to signing up for the course blog. This is not required, but it's a good way to keep track of your own posts, and you'll have a more aggregate record of your thought process by the end of the course.

If you upgrade your blogger.com account to the new version (used to be called beta), then you'll be able to cross-post on both the course blog and on your own blog. You need a gmail account to do this though. Once you've set up your own blog make sure to go into "settings," click on the "email" tab and choose a "mail-to-blogger-address" that you can email your posts to. Do the same thing with your account on the course blog, and then you'll be able to send an email that CCs a cross-post to both blogs. Let me know (in comments) if you have any questions.

BTW, as far as I can tell, this is the most straight forward way to set up automatic cross-posting on blogger right now. If anyone can find a way to do it with the regular editor let us know.

Also, if you already have a blog, feel free to cross-post from there. Those of you who use Wordpress may have an easier option.


For those of you who have your own blog and would like to cross-post with your course blogger account, check out this flow chart and scroll down to cross-posting to see if your blog is supported. If not, there may still be a way to email a post to your blog, and then you can just use the same method as described above.
