Operation #3 To Post a topic:

        A.  This is a totally separate operation.  Close the blog.

        B.  Go to your browser. 

        C.  Type in URL: www.blogspot.com.  This will take you to the Blog website.  When you get there, right click, find Shortcut and create a desktop icon.

        D.  The only thing you are interested in here is the sign-in box in the upper right of the screen.  You are going to sign-in as if you were John Locke.  The user name is:  johnlockekc@yahoo.com, the password is : journal.   Now the website thinks you are John Locke.  When you have signed in, you will see a screen called Dashboard.  Click on New Post.  This will bring up a screen which has a box for you to type the name of your topic and a bigger box where you can type in the content of your topic.   Along the top of the box are a number of options.  You can select the font, the font color, import an image, create a link and various other things. When you have your topic the way you want it, just click on the "Publish Post"  button which is just below the box, to the left.  When you click on that, your topic will be automatically posted to the Blog. Close the website, you are done.   You do know that click means left click unless otherwise stated.

    If you want to see the blog screen again  go to operation  #  1.  You can do that quickly by clicking on the Icon on your desktop.  Your topic will be the one on top.  Later topics will be on top of that.  At the end of the day, old topics will be moved to the Archives where they will reside forever or until the Democrats are elected.
