Creating Your Online Weblog

Blogs are web logs (or online journal entries) that others can see they are displayed so that the most recent entry is on the top and the oldest entry is on the bottom. You will be able to read important news and updates!

How Do I Get to the Blog?
  1. Log in to your Famster's Admin.
  2. Click on the Menu tab.
  3. Click on the Blog page's button. Since Blog folders can be named anything, whatever it was called the button's icon will still look the same.

  4. The Blog's content will then load.
