By creating these blogs, all I've done is create a sub-directory. Since I have not published anything the sub-directories are empty. This was handy when I realized I wanted a sub-directory called Archive instead of Archives. Using the settings tab in the particular blog, I changed the blog sub-directory. I could then use FileZilla ftp (file transfer protocol) program to erase the old sub-directory that the system will no longer use.
|Blog ID||Blog Name||Subdirectory||Discription|
|2||Archive||Archive||A listing of past home pages.|
|3||Diamond bullets||Diamond||A collection of profound thoughts.|
|4||Tech articles||Articles||A collection of my technical articles.|
|5||Tech writing||Write||A place to learn technical writing.|
|6||Suffering with software||Suffer||An examination of the misery caused by creating and using software.|
|7||Links||Bookmarks||Useful links, approved vendors. and the best of the best.|
|8||My strive||Strive||A look back at my time on this planet.|
|9||Libertarian apostate||Apostate||A born libertarian has second thoughts.|
By creating the blogs in the above order I get the subsequent blog IDs assigned by the MT software. This will be important in the table of contents page for the whole site, since that ID is how you can refer to each blog. That way, if you change the blog name later, it will change in the contents page automatically.
This is also a good time to add a description for each blog. The Movable Type default page uses that as a subtitle to the blog name. After you have the structure of the site set up, you should look at the site with FileZilla to be sure all the sub-directories are named properly.
