These steps need to be followed for the creation of each individual blog.
Sadly there is no way to automate this until Blogger release updates enabling this.
It is important to work from the spreadsheet to create the blogs. Simply click the URL you have created and it will open in Blogger and tell you that a Blog does not exist at that URL, BUT it is available to register. You click the Register button.
This video talks you through this process going from spreadsheet to registration to the initial set up of the blog.
Dismiss the Dialogue Box inviting you to begin blogging
Go to >Settings >Template
In top right hand corner click on "Backup/Restore"
Now you are invited to choose a file to restore this blog from, so locate the file you downloaded to your Hard Drive
Finally, we need to work through the settings and make sure that they are all adjusted to suit the agreed school Blogging protocols.
The most efficient way to check if the posts and comments are working correctly is to post a simple welcome and write a comment under it for the student.
If the teacher is highly organised this first post might already be available in a digital format somewhere and could be copied and pasted into the first post. If not, a simple sentence of welcome will do - it can even be deleted later if the student doesn't like it!!
