  3. Select OU blog OU blog icon and click Add
  4. You will be taken to the Adding a new OU blog screen where you can set the parameters of your blog

  6. If desired, use the Individual blogs drop-down menu to select individual blogs. If individual blogs are not required, leave this menu at the default no (blog together or in groups)

  7. Click Save and display
