    • If you already have an account created at blogs.evergreen.edu this will login in directly to your dashboard.

    • Need account help? See: Evergreen Login Overview
  2. To create a new blog site select Gimme a Site! and click Next
  3. Enter the Site Name - this will become part of your unique URL or web address and cannot be changed.
  4. Enter the Site Title - this will be used in the header section of your site and can be changed later
  5. From the drop-down menu choose the blog type: Program/Course, Individual, Group or Other.
  6. Click Signup. You should now be ready to login to your new blog.

Your site is not public, yet
