When we say about their own blog, everyone fears creating a blog, but In today’s world, it isn’t a hard task and does not require any technical knowledge. Many platforms allow us to create Free blogs, and if you want to create a free one, our advice is to choose either wordpress.com or Blogger.com. Let us see how to create one with screenshots.
In our daily life, everyone like to share something in one way or other. Some people use Social Networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, and others may share using their voice. As we all know, this century is all about the internet, and it isn’t exciting to have your own blog or website so that you can write your own stories.
How to Create a Blog on Blogger Platform
Google introduced Blogger to provide a free service for people who want to share their knowledge and experience or expand their business. It uses Picasa web Album to store the photos you share in your blog. There are some limitations as a beginner if you want to try your luck in blogging. If you don’t want to spend money on blogging, or you don’t have the money to buy a Domain Name and Web Space, then our advice is to choose this Blogger platform. Let us see the step-by-step approach to create it.
STEP 1: To create a blog on this platform, Please navigate to Blogger.com, and once you click on the URL, the browser asks to sign in with your Google account. If you already have a Gmail account (I believe you have one), enter your credentials. Otherwise, create your own account by clicking on the Create account link.
STEP 2: For the first time, you see the following image after you log in. As you can see, you have to Confirm your profile by selecting either Google + profile or a limited Blogger profile. We highly recommend you to select Google + profile option.
STEP 3: Once you select the Google + profile option, you can view, edit, or modify your profile by clicking View my Complete profile. Here, we are not going to make any changes, so click on Continue to Blogger button.
STEP 4: Please click on the New Blog option to create a new one
STEP 5: This is an important step in the whole process and reflects your whole business or personal idea. So, please be careful and do some research before filling in these details.
- Title: Please specify the Blog title here. While naming, try to avoid personal names and use niche-based names. For example, if your blog is about Cooking, then select something like healthy recipes, chef special, etc.
- Address: Please specify the URL that reflects your title. Since we are using the free Blogger service, Google added an extra extension called blogspot.com to our original URL. If you have a custom third-party URL (something like tutorialgateway.org), you can also use that URL as well.
- Template: Please select the Template that suits your needs or your business needs. You always have the luxury to change the template at any time. So, no need to waste your time selecting.
Once you fill in the details, click on Create Blog! button
STEP 6: Once you click on the Button, the following window opens. It is the Blogger Dashboard, and you are going to spend most of your time at this place. From the screenshot below, you can observe that we are currently at the Overview tab, and this tab shows the page views, comments, etc.
STEP 7: Before we complete, let us see our newly created Blog by navigating to the URL: healthyrecipes927.blogspot.in
Though we haven’t added any posts, I hope you got the basic idea of How to Create it.
