About eBay Blogs
An eBay Blog (Web log) gives you an online publishing tool to share your opinions with the rest of the eBay Community. Blogs can be used for a variety of purposes: to enhance an eBay store, share personal experiences or talk about buying or selling on eBay. What you write on your eBay Blog is up to you because it's all about you.
To create a blog:
Go to http://blogs.ebay.com.au and click Start Blogging.
Use the fields to name your blog and write a brief description.
Enter descriptive tags so other people can find you through search.
Decide how your blog will look by choosing a theme.
Once you submit this information and create your blog, you can change settings and your blog's appearance by clicking on settings and customise in your owner's toolbox.
The URL you can share with others is http://blogs.ebay.com.au/userID.
If you want your blog to have a more customised look, you can use our advanced customised tools.
To customise your blog:
Click Advanced Customisation under Customise in the left nav bar and submit.
Enter CSS in the text area.
When done, you can save or reset the CSS field. You can always revert to a standard style (or theme) at any time.
After you decide how your blog will look, you're ready to start writing blog entries. eBay Blogs allow you to create and edit HTML easily in either a rich text editor or edit HTML code directly.
To create an entry:
You will be prompted to create your first entry when you create your blog. Or, select New entry in your "Owner Tools" in the left nav bar to write an entry at any time.
Give your blog entry a title.
Write your thoughts in the entry field. You can use the commands at the top of the entry field to add photos or HTML to your entry.
When you're ready to publish, save your entry to draft. Be sure to review before you publish – you can always go back and edit.
Blog entries appear in reverse chronological order, so the newest entry is always on top. Other members can read your blog and comment on it.
