INTRODUCTION



Blogs range from being some of the most influential websites on the internet like Lindaikeji, 
Ynaija, the Huffington Post, which is an online newspaper that is written by a team of professional journalists, that is worth millions, and is influential in business and politics; to niche based websites like  Kamsoblog which is focused exclusively on technology and blogging related information.

There are also other forms of blogs like, Personal blogs which may only have ten or twelve followers, blogs used to play around with ideas, such as my wife’s blog on natural hair care, which only has a few articles. Although, it’s helpful to those looking to improve their natural hair regimen.

    1. That is just a simple navigation tab. To add that just go to your blogger dashboard, click on layout, then move click on cross column. You add it in two ways either as list of pages or you use html codes

      But if you want to use pages just click on pages and add list of pages you want to add to your navigation tab. Mind you that you must have created such pages b4 like about us page, contact us , advertise etc den tick the pages , you can also add links of your blog labels or category to show different category of posts
