Step 1: Go to the Global2 website by clicking on this link: Global2 Home Page
Step 2: Click on the link on the right hand side of the page, on the world logo, under where it says “Create your First Blog”.
Step 3: Add your site domain name – I suggest your student code (eg. gow005) or nickname. Choose carefully, this becomes part of your web address and cannot be changed.
Step 4: Give your blog a title, which can be changed at any time.
Step 5: Choose your privacy settings. I recommend that you choose “Visitors must have a login”, so only students and teachers who have registered with global2 can comment on your blog. Create your new blog by clicking on the “create site” button at the bottom of the page.
Step 6: Login to your email account, click on the link sent from global2 and activate your blog.
Step 7: Login to your blog’s dashboard and change your password (Go to “Home” and “My Account”) ensuring you remember your blog address and password.
Step 8: Log in and go to the “Appearance” button to choose a theme for your new blog.
Step 9: Go to “Add Post” and write your first post by adding a title and text. You may also like to add an image – remember it should be an image you have created yourself or a creative commons image and not one copied from the internet.
Step 10: Fill in the following form with your details.
