How to set Blogger time zone

Update: Your Blogger time zone can be set via
Dashboard > Settings > Formatting
and at the 5th item is a drop down menu to select your time zone. Ignore the rest of this post.

A blogger complained that the time stamp for his post does not correspond to the time zone of the place he is posting to Blogger. If you want to change the time zone for Blogger which is tied to your Google account, you will have to change the time zone for your Google Account. Here is what you need to do:

Sign into Blogger Dashboard and click on "My Account":

Blogger Dashboard: Account

At the top left section of your Google Account, if you have not yet created your Google Profile, click "edit your personal info":

Edit Google Profile

At the "Edit Personal Information" page, tick [ ] Display all timezones and select your timezone.
