I looked at several freakin blogs which explained how to change my settings, but I simply could not get it. I even went so far as to ask a complete internet stranger to go in and do it for me!! Her response?
Ok, so I figured out that Google + was the actual problem and the reason I could not see the option "blogger profile" which is what needed to change. Today I went back in and actually found the solution. In the blogger dashboard page, you have to click on the gear looking thingy on the right. Under there, you can choose "old blogger interface" and then suddenly all those directions make sense. You can then continue on with the instructions located on many many blogs such as: Pleasant Home.. As my toddler likes to say: BINGO!
The only bad part is that I entered many giveaways on the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway Day and I may have won something and lost out!! DARN!
