Twenty years ago it was common for people (especially women) to drive into a petrol station and sit in the car or stand awkwardly beside it, hoping that the petrol attendant would see them and come by to sort out the pump. I did that for many years until a friend's sister showed me how to adjust the metallic thingy that keeps the petrol pumping. Not long later, someone showed my mother, and for years she has just bowled up and sorted it out for herself.
It's a great feeling not to have to sit passively, hoping to be helped out. For a while now I've been helping someone add text and photos to their blog, but last week they asked me to explain how to do it.
I found that the best way to do this was to act as if I was going to update the blog myself, watching what I was doing, and writing down every single step. Clear, technical writing is about starting from the beginning and including every step - not leaving gaps in the hope that the reader will make a leap to the next significant step. I'm happy to say the steps worked for her (with a bit of trial and error, to clarify some of the steps), and she is now on her way to updating her blog whenever she feels like it.
So for anyone who has a blog on Google's Blogger platform, but has got stuck on uploading photos, adding a page or moving text from one place to another, these steps are for you - How to update a Blogger site. All power to your blog!
