Good news! We know it's been a bit of a pain that MN bloggers haven't, till now, been able to edit their blog info themselves - always useful to be able to change your own caption, or upload a more flattering profile pic. So we asked the MN tech team to have a bit of a tinker under the Bloggers' Network bonnet, and - ta-da! - now you can update your info whenever you like.
Just log into Mumsnet, go to 'My Mumsnet' at the top right of the page, and click on 'My account' - here you'll find a brand new tab titled 'Blog info'. Want to change the description of your blog, to tempt more readers to click through? Go for it. Need to update your URL because you've moved to a new platform? Easy-peasy. Just fill in the new info, click save, and you're done.
You'll need to be registered on the main Mumsnet site to do all this - it's very easy to do so here. But if you'd rather not, don't worry - just email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll make the changes for you.
We're looking forward to a flood of witty new blog descriptions and intriguing profile pics - so go on, do have a fiddle. And don't forget to tell us what you think here on the thread.
I'm a bit confused....New to the network - apologies in advance for my dim-wittedness. Once you are a member, how do you upload your blogs, or do you just post links on the forum...? If someone can help me out with this it would be much appreciated!
Hi LimitlessU - so sorry we didn't see your post sooner. A belated welcome to the Network!
Now you're a member we'll automatically pick up your blog in our Recent Posts feed - so you don't need to do anything differently on your blog, just keep posting and when you hit publish your post will appear in our list. Simple, non?
You can also share links on the New Blog Posts Talk forum, or chat away to other Network members on here. This is also a great place to ask fellow bloggers for advice, so don't be shy!
Hi everyone I've just taken the plunge and moved my wordpress.com blog over to self hosted. My new site is happinessinlearning.com I think I have changed my blog info on the network; it all looks ok. Does this mean my new feeds with appear as I post or do I need to do anything else?
I feel a bit thick. I cannot get our image to change. I upload it and I can see the file name but not the image, and when I click anything on the screen the file name disappears, help. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
please have a look at nehathaker.com and let me have your precious feedback. Its a fresh attempt by a first time mother about my journey, experiences and views on pregnancy, fitness, nutrition, fashion, lifestyle and world around us.
I'm a nearly 49 year old mum of two, who has just started to write poetry!!. This is all SO new to me, I don't know what I'm doing!. I would really appreciate all and any feedback. I know poetry is not everyone's cup of tea, but if you find yourselves bored witless, twiddling your thumbs, please feel free to have a read through this middle aged, over weight's woman's attempt at writing!!.
