How to Create a blog with Blogger

Blogger is a blogging software owned by the Big G – Google. I actually started blogging on blogger. So, I recommend that you start here.

Here is a step-by step guide on how to create a blog using blogger.

  • First, create an account with Google here (if you don’t have Google account already)

Note that a single username and password from Google account will gets you into everything that is own by Google.

You will use that single Google account to have access to all Google products such as Blogger, GMail, Google Doc, Google Earth, AdSense, YouTube, FeedBurner, Google Drive and many more…

If you already have a GMail account, this will be useful now. You can use it to create a blog on Blogger.

If you don’t have the Google account already, simply signup in Google account and you are ready to start.

Now that you have Google account, visit Blogger.com

Confirm your profile and click continue to Blogger

After confirming your profile, you will be taken to where you will proceed to the final 5 steps to create your blog on blogger.

  1. type in your blog Name
  2. Type in your blog website address (URL)
  3. Conform that your website address is available

So, you may need to et a free domain name when you buy web hosting account from $0.99/month WordPress Hosting from 1and1 buy a new domain map to to work with blogger.

Congratulations! You are now a blog owner. In the next training, I will teach you how to publish your first article on your blogger and WordPress blog

Let’s continue on the how to create a free blog using WordPress.

How to Create a blog FREE with WordPress

With WordPress, you can also create a free blog.

There are three blogging platforms in WordPress. These are;

WordPress.com: Free domain (with custom domain alternative), hosted on WordPress. – FREE

WordPress.org: Fully optimized self-Hosted WordPress powered website or blog. – NOT FREE

WordPress VIP: Enterprise Hosting Powered WordPress Sites. – NOT FREE

For absolute beginners, I usually advise that you should try your hands on the free option so that you can use that to learn the basics before paying.

But if you want to get something outstanding at once, I will advice you to chose your self-hosted WordPress blog. We can set it up for you  in no time.

So, let’s see how to create a blog FREE using WordPress.com

Follow the step-by-step guide below;

(1) Visit: WordPress.com
(2) Click on create a blog

(3) Fill in your blog name and check if it’s available

(4) Click Create Your Site and Continue

(5) Fill in your information needed and click Create a Blog

You are done!

Please note that your blog name will be something like – yourblogname.wordpress.com.

Of course, you can change this to yourblogname.com but still hosting free on wordpress.

There are limitations to free hosting. You will not be able to have absolute control over everything on your site. Of course, with wordpress free hosting, you will not be able to participate in AdSense programme.

How to Create a Professional Blog with Custom Domain

You can see the the lesson above was on how to create a free blog. But if you need a professional blog, you will need a little investment. Let me show you…

You will need to buy a custom domain name. I recommend you get a free domain name when you buy hosting account from $0.99/month WordPress Hosting from 1and1 or get it from Namecheap.com

They also offer professional WordPress Hosting services. Then buy a professional premium theme from themeforest.net. This will make your blog to have a feel of uniqueness.

Then you do the minor customization and SEO. That’s all you need to start publishing on your professional blog. It will look like this blog you are reading now.

      It depends on where you will want to host it. You can host it for free on blogger or wordpress and the cost will be below 5k. You can create a self host wordpress and the cost also depend on the histing company, Like this blog, I am hosting it on bluehost for $13 per month. So, it really depend on a lot of things. However, I can set up a professional blog for you with premium theme at a very minimal budget. See the hire me page for details
