For Beginners: How To Create A Blog Using Blogger

Blogging is trending these days and being quite familiar. We read a lot of articles a day while browsing to get required information over the internet.

And we become delighted when we solution for the same. It happens only because someone has shared their knowledge by putting it into an article.

The blogs can be written on various topics which we are interested in. Ahh! just a moment, let me correct myself.

So not just interested in something, in fact, we should choose a topic which we love the most. As continuing, something for a longer period can only be possible if we love the topic.

So thinking of starting a new blog on a subject which you like the most. Awesome…!! Great choice.. go ahead and share the knowledge you got, and moreover, we can also earn few bucks by monetizing it.

So now the question where to start, how to start..isn’t? We have plenty of Blogging platforms. WordPress.org, Blogger, are the most popular ones.

WordPress.org is the self-hosted one, so most of the new bloggers start their blogging career or hobby on Blogspot, as its free to start with.

We can create a blog in just steps and-and free of cost, without any investment into it, So why not to start it.

I hope you have chosen your blog topic, so let us get into the process to start a blog step by step in detail.

  • Title of the Blog – We can choose a suitable title for your blog, which is going to appear at the top of the blog (Below the URL box). This would be quite important as it describes your blog in a few words in the very first impression.
  • Blog Address – we have to be little careful over here while choosing a blog address, as this is the address which gets converts into a URL for our blog. People will be able to access your blog with the same URL

For Instance – My blog name is question cage, so if we enter it the address can be seen like questioncage.blogspot.com. One thing which we have to keep in mind that every blog has a unique web address.

And of course, we can change that domain later, if we wish to, we can buy any custom domain from any domain sites, like GoDaddy, BigRock, Namecheap and more, though it’s not compulsory. But I would be recommending to purchase a domain if you want to monetize it.

  • Choose Template – In the Template section, we can choose any template we want to, blogger has some collection of predefined templates. Selection any template from the collection you like.
  • Click on Create blog button” to create your first blog.
