Launching a Blogs@Baruch Site

To launch a new site, go to and log in using your Baruch username and password (the same username and password that you use on the computers in Baruch’s labs and classrooms and to access library resources).

Note: You must be a member of the Baruch community to create a site.

Once you’re logged in, click “Create New Site” on the main menu.

You will land on a page that asks you to name your site and to give it a title.

The “Site Name” is what will appear after the “” in your web address, and cannot be changed after you create your site; it also can only include lower-case letters and numbers without spaces.

The “Site Title” is what will appear in the header of your site, and can be changed at any time and can include letters, numbers, symbols, and spaces.

Finally, select whether you want your site to be indexed by search engines or not. You can select from more specific privacy options once you’ve registered your site.

Please also fill out the Metadata fields to tell us about you and how you plan to use your new site.

Click “Create Site.”
