How to Create a Simple Microsoft SharePoint Blog

SharePoint Online is an incredibly flexible tool for building communication and collaboration. One of the most useful options that SharePoint Online provides for this is the creation of blog sites. Blog sites in SharePoint online are incredibly helpful, and we recommend using them whenever possible.

  • Step 1: Go to Site Contents

  • Step 2: Click New Subsite

    In the text boxes labeled “Name,” “Description,” and “URL,” respectively, type a name, a description, and a URL for the website.

  • Step 4: Choose a template

    Choose the Blog template that can be found under the Collaboration tab, and then move on to the next portion of the template selection. Take note that there is a selection of pre-designed site templates available for use.

  • Step 5: Select user permission

    Maintain the default setting so that the same permissions as the parent site are used. If you want to disrupt the inheritance of permissions for the blog site, you can also choose to use different permissions for the blog itself.

  • Step 6: Navigation Inheritance

    In the section titled Navigation Inheritance, you will have the option to either use the same top link bar as the parent site or use a top link bar that is completely different. If the top link bar of the blog and the parent site are identical, then you will be able to navigate back to the parent site from within the blog itself. If you do not use the same top link bar, then the blog will give off the impression that it is separate from other blogs. You always have the option to manually add navigation to the link bar at the top of the page.

  • Step 7: Select Create Button

    Your new blog first appears once you see a notice stating that SharePoint is operational. After that, to add a new entry to your blog, click the Create a Post button (located under Blog Tools on the right side). The Welcome to Your Blog default post, a list of blog posting tools, a space for your photo, and buttons for RSS Feed and Alert Me are all displayed on the blog site’s home page. A Photos app, a Categories app, a Posts app, and a Comments app are all part of the website’s content.
