In this tutorial I will show you how to add a blog to your Xanga account. This is also known as adding a post to your Xanga account. Which ever you want to call it is fine. You can insert smilies, pictures, and more into your blog. I will explain how to do all of that.
Login to your Xanga account. Once you have logged in, you should be on your account page. At the top right corner of your page, you will see the Blog Now link. Hover over that link and wait for the menu to drop down. Click New Weblog Entry when the menu drops down.
On the next page you will see your entry window. Type in a subject for your blog in the subject field. In the next field you can type in your blog. You have many options in this editor. You can insert links, smilies, pictures, and more. I will explain a little more in detail how to use some of the options.
