Via a View, I'm pushing four blog teasers to a page.

I'm showing the Title, Summary and Read More.

I want to hide the "author's" blog link, and replace that line with the blog post date.

Just like this home page:  www.serve.gov

(attached screen capture is my current View settings.)

What's the best approach?

The best approach is to switch your display mode from teasers to field-based. You can then select individual fields (Node body as a teaser, node post date (or update date), content link as read more link, etc).

Go to the Format section and click on the word "Teaser" and change it to field, and you will have the ability to add/reorder these individual fields in the (currently disabled) "FIELDS" section.

stephencolson,

Thanks, using that advice I got it.

What's left now is add some negative space between them. The blogss are stacked one atop another. How can I get a break or new line between them?

See screen capture.

Sandshakimi,

That is usually a job for css. If memory serves, the class selector you are looking for is views-row, and I would recommend putting something like "padding-bottom: 1.5em;" on it in your style.css file.
