    I have Google XML Sitemaps. Is it necessary to submit it or do I just create it and leave it alone? If I submit it, should I submit it to Google only?

    You don't have to submit it unless your blog was not yet crawled. I use AIO webmaster and submit also the sitemap once right when I'm ready to launch.
    You can submit it once per month or so without problems, just don't abuse it.
