It is very easy! Here are the steps:
1. Log into your Blogspot Control Panel (Dashboard). You
will see something like this:
2. Click on the link for "Settings".
You will be taken to this:
3. Click on the "Email" link
You will be taken here:
The only field you need to enter is the second one. Put
anything you like in that box, it really doesn't matter as
no-one will ever see it. Then Decide if you want posts
automatically published, or saved as draft. Until you have
fine tuned all your settings, I recommend choosing 'Draft'
for now. Once you are happy with the articles you are
receiving, then you can switch to 'Auto'.
4. Now write down the full email
address from that second box. You need to
take all three parts of it: the prefix, the bit your
entered, and the @blogger.com.
5. Now go over and
sign up for a free email delivery
account with The Unique Article Wizard.
Put the email address you got from step 4 into the
field "Email Article Delivery Address":
Then fill in all the other details.
To select the categories or articles you want to receive,
you can use either the provided list, or you can enter your
own list, or you can use both.
If you have a very tightly niched blog, you may prefer to
enter your own list - if you do, use keywords that
accurately describe what you want. Remember this list
is matched up with the keywords provided by the article
author. So if you put "dogs" you will get any and all
articles that have anything to do with dogs. If you don't
want that, then maybe try phrases such as "dog training",
"puppy training", and so on.
With a bit of experimentation you will be able to get
just the articles you are looking for.
6. Hit the "Signup" button.
7. Go and check your blog for
the confirmation email. In it will be a
confirmation link. Click that, and you are all set to
receive articles direct to your blog! Go back to the
Dashboard and find the Posts link:
Or, if you set it to auto-publish your posts, click on
the View Blog link, and you will see it there.
8. At any time you can
into your account to change your preferences.
You can switch off receiving articles, you can change which
categories you receive, and you can choose which format you
want your articles delivered in.
9. If you want to fine-tune the
way the articles are displayed, here is how you
can do it (but it does require a little bit of knowledge of
CSS and HTML). This is not essential. Most people will
want to ignore this step completely.
Go back to the dashboard and click on the
Layout link, and then the Edit HTML link:
Down the page you will see a section called Edit
Template. In there you will see a textarea in which you
can make changes to the template. In there, scroll
down until you see something that looks like this:
This is the css section. Now, what you will want to
do is add some sections of css that will look something like this (obviously you
change the details to suit your preferences - and make sure you
include the dot at the beginning of the line for each
/* this sets the style for
the by-line of the author */
/* this affects the main
body text of the article */
/* this wraps around both the
"about the author" and the actual resource box. You
could use this to put a box around them both, eg: */
border: 1px solid red;
/* this is the phrase "About the Author" */
*/ NOTE: the "!important" is needed to override the
italic style that is already included in this div
/* this is the rest of the resource box */

of your blog, just do a Google search on "CSS Tutorial" and
you will find loads of help! If this all looks like
some foreign language - don't worry about it - just ignore
