It is like if you have a new blog post then it will be published on twitter, or any other social site. So, simply click on the blue “this” link as it is shown in the screenshot below:
Now IFTTT will show you a list of channels that you can connect. It will act as the trigger like if your Blogger blog has a new post then [do something]. So, select Blogger from the list or search it in the search box.
