Blog Setup - 2 - Finishing up basic config on the blog

Here is a short video showing the basic configuration of our BlogEngine.NET blog. Working on my audio settings before I dig in with more advanced topics.

Thought I would share this for anyone wanting to get a basic blog started quickly and inexpensively (if not entirely free). Next up will be some work on setting up an Azure Mobile Service, to feed a Xamarin.Forms project for collecting blog content and travel data.
