The technique of having Multiple authors to manage a Blog is getting popular these days. Though this feature was already available in wordpress , recently Blogger too has enabled this feature. So now Blogger Users can have upto 100 multiple Authors or co-Authors for their blogs. So this new Team Blogging feature has enabled multiple authors to manage a single Blog. Although the owner of the blog will be the admin by default and all new authors he invites will be given co-author account. They can only EDIT their posts and they won’t have the feature to edit / delete others posts. However the admin can change the privileges of the co-authors anytime.
Adding Multiple Authors to Blogger Blogs
In this tutorial , I will explain how to Add more co-authors or guest authors to your Blogger Blog. Just follow these simple steps to enable this feature in Blogger.
- Sign in to Blogger
- Go to the Settings page of your blog. Click the link for Permissions.
- Click the “Add Authors” button to add one or more new authors to the list of people who can write posts for your blog.
- After adding the authors email id , click ” invite ” button.
- Blogger sends an email invitation to each person you listed in Step 4. If they agree to participate in writing the blog, they respond to the email affirmatively. Blogger does the rest for you.
Changing the permissions of the author
Once the author accepts your invitation , he can start writing in your blog. But he can only edit or delete posts written by him. He can’t delete posts written by others.
If you want anyone of the author to edit others post , then you need to grant him admin privileges. For granting Admin privileges , go to Settings page of your blog and navigate to Permissions subtab. Beside the author name you will see a button ” grant admin privileges “.
Click that button and you are done. Now your partner can edit or delete any posts. But one thing you must be very careful before giving someone the admin privileges is that once you grant someone admin privileges he has the power to remove you from the blog.
