How to Start a Blog at Blogger.com -- A Beginner's Guide

So, you finally decided to have your own blog, but you don't know how to go about it. In this post, I'll do a step-by-step guide on how to set-up a blog at Blogger.com. You may 'right-click' the pictures to better  understand this tutorial.
  • Type www.blogger.com in the address bar of your web browser, and click "CREATE YOUR BLOG."


  • Click "More options."


  • Create your Google account by filling out this form.


  • After accomplishing the form, click "Next Step." Don't forget to read the Blogger's Privacy and Terms [formerly this was Terms of Service (ToS)] before clicking "I agree."  (I have heard about bloggers who were suspended from using Google Adsense because they violated some items in the ToS. Blogger operates in this manner -- you violate its stipulations and your account gets suspended.) Click "Continue to Blogger."


  • You will be asked to confirm your Google+ profile.  For this demo blog, I'm choosing the limited Blogger profile option. 


  • Click "Continue to Blogger," and click "Create new blog."



  • Write your desired title and address.  The title is the name of your blog, e.g., Student Interns. The address is its Uniform Resource Locator or URL, e.g., http://studentinterns.blogspot.com.   


  • Choose the theme of your blog, and click "Create Blog!"
  • Now, you're ready to write your first blog post. 


  • Write the title of your first blog post in the title bar. 



  • Click "PUBLISH" after you have written everything you want to say in this maiden post.
