Now that my employer has upgrade our SharePoint site to SharePoint 2010, I’ve spent a little bit of time working on taking full advantage of the new My Site features, particularly the social/collaboration tools. While I have this blog for my technical ponderings in order to share them with the world, I also created an internal blog so I could post company-sensitive material for internal information sharing. By default, SharePoint titles your blog “Blog” and has some very basic settings. Perhaps it should’ve been obvious (since I couldn’t find any howtos on the topic), but I had a tough time figuring out how to change the title, among other things.
One key thing to note on the blog is that it is a SharePoint site, and thus adheres to the site architecture! Thus, you can change the site (aka blog) title by going to Site Actions > Site Settings > Look and Feel > Title, description, and icon.
