How To Create A Blogger Post Template

Blogger Template

As our genealogy blogging community grows and new bloggers join our ranks, I often receive emails about how to perform certain functions in Blogger.  For the most part, there are already posts here at GeneaBloggers or over at Bootcamp for GeneaBloggers cover these issues.

Recently, however, a new blogger asked a “how to” question that hasn’t yet been covered: how to create a Blogger posting template pre-populated with data (such as copyright info, etc.) so it would pop-up automatically each time you clicked New Post.

Here’s how to incorporate this great time-saving feature into your own Blogger-based blog:

  • Log in to Blogger.  Click Settings.

Blogger Template

  • Click the Formatting tab.  Scroll to the bottom and locate the Post Template section.
  • Enter the text in the box.  For formatting, such as italics or bold, use basic HTML codes.  Click Save Settings.

Blogger Template

  • Click New Post.  The text will appear in the edit box automatically.

About Thomas MacEntee

What happens when a “tech guy” with a love for history gets laid off during The Great Recession of 2008? You get Thomas MacEntee, a genealogy professional who’s also a blogger, educator, author, social media connector, online community builder and more. Thomas was laid off after a 25-year career in the information technology field, so he started his own genealogy-related business called High Definition Genealogy. He also created an online community of over 3,000 family history bloggers known as GeneaBloggers. His most recent endeavor, Hack Genealogy, is an attempt to “re-purpose today’s technology for tomorrow’s genealogy.” Thomas describes himself as a lifelong learner with a background in a multitude of topics who has finally figured out what he does best: teach, inspire, instigate, and serve as a curator and go-to-guy for concept nurturing and inspiration. Thomas is a big believer in success, and that we all succeed when we help each other find success.
