How to make pages on Blogger

So a good friend of mine asked me how I made my pages on Blogger. So here is a hopefully understandable step-by-step guide on how I did this. Having pages gives to a place to sort out posts, like tutorials, recipes, information and other items. It is a really helpful tool. And it was all provided through one of those lovely "Gadgets"! (Sorry these images are a bit fuzzy)

   Go into your blog settings, select "Layout" (Red Oval) then click on a "Add a Gadget" button, see here in the red rectangle.

Once you click on the "Add a Gadget" this pop up will appear and you will want to add the "Pages" gadget you see here selected by the red rectangle.

Then arrange your gadget in your layout where you would like it to go.

Then you click on the edit button on your new gadget and you will see a new button pop up that will give you all your options for making your pages.

Now that you have named and arranged your pages to your liking you will want to go to the "pages" section (seen in the red oval) and here you can see where your individual editing will take place.

Now go into your live blog. You will see your pages...but they don't have the text type or color that you desire. Now you need to liven things up! Select "design" (red oval) and get to work!

See that red box? Click that customize button! Do it! (apparently I need some sugar...miss grumpy pants)

Once in the "customize area you want to click on the the "advanced" button shown in the red rectangle.

Then scroll down till you see tabs text and tabs background and edit to your liking. You will be able to see how it looks below. Once you are satisfied with the results. click the "apply to blog" button.


That is until you want to change it again.

Have fun creating!
