Here You Will Learn How To Start A Blog On Blogger.
Having a blog is a great thing because you can share anything you want (…and if you are wise you can also earn a decent income from your blog)
There Are many blogging platforms that you can use to create a blog for yourself.
This post is dedicated to the “beginners” who are new to blogging and would like to get started by learning the basics involved in the process.
Before We begin the complete tutorial, this is what you should know:
- BlogSpot is a blogging platform powered by Google. It offers you an opportunity to start a blog, but all your images will be hosted by Picasa (also part of Google). BlogSpot, in this sense, is a Google-centric blogging platform.
Step-by-step Guide to Creating a Free Blog on BlogSpot.
To create your free BlogSpot blog site, head over to BlogSpot.com and login using your Google account. If you don’t have a Google (gmail) account, you can create one for free.
For a first time user, you will see an option to use the identity from your Google Plus profile, or you can use your limited BlogSpot profile. I recommend using your Google Plus profile.
Once you are logged in, click on “new blog” or click on this link to directly go there: Create a free blog
Name your blog:
The first thing you need to do is add a name and Select Domain Name For Your Blog.
Avoid using your personal name as the domain name, and instead use some generic domain name that you can brand later with a custom domain.
You can then select a blog template (you can change it anytime), and click on “Create Blog”.
Now your blog is created, but you are not done yet!
There are a few settings that you need to set on your newly created BlogSpot blog to make it easy to use.
You are now on the BlogSpot dashboard where you will see your blog’s backend. From here you can go to “Settings” and make changes to improve your Blog's visibility.
Here is a screenshot of what you should be seeing.
From here you can click on “Posts” > “New post” and start writing your very first blog post!
But before you write your first post, I would recommend that you go to “Pages” and create at least one “About” page describing who you are and what your blog is about.
On this page, you can also add a logo to the header of your BlogSpot blog, and add or remove various other features.
Note: This post is meant for every reader out there who does not already have a blog and is looking for an easy way to create a free blog.
