Setup A Team Blog

Occasionally, we have some blog owners who have never considered publishing a blog with multiple owners, or even with multiple authors.

A team blog is so easy to setup, yet some blog owners have no idea how to do this. A team blog with multiple authors is the simplest to setup - just go to Settings - Basic, and use Permissions to invite a friend as an author.

When your friend accepts membership, you have a team blog with multiple authors.

Make sure that your friend uses the right Blogger account, to accept membership.

Your friend should know to use the correct account, when accepting membership.

Make a team member an administrator, after membership is accepted.

To make a team blog with multiple administrators, just make one of the team members an administrator, after he accepts membership as an author. Here, as always, I'll advise caution - only add administrators whom you can trust - and who will perform, honourably and reliably, as administrators.

The "About Me" / "Profile" gadget will change - be prepared.

Note that with a team blog, the default "Profile" gadget will change to "About Us". If you don't care to make the team authorship (or ownership) of the blog so obvious, you'll probably want to setup a custom Profile gadget / static page.

Making a team blog is simply a portion of the process of transferring blog control. It's that simple.
