Blogging is a great way to express yourself and also a fantastic way to share information with others. You can earn a decent income from your blog and share anything you want. If you’ve ever wondered how to create a free blog, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what I’m going to show you today.
Many newbies who want to start blogging don’t want to invest money to create a blog and this is completely reasonable. There are many blogging platform which offer users to make an blog. If you’re looking for a free blog, I want to suggest go with BlogSpot.com and WordPress.com
Once you’ve some blogging experience, you can advance and become more professional with a self-hosted WordPress blog.
Step by Step Guide to Creating a Free Blog on BlogSpot.Com
Blogger is an online service powered by Google that publishes single or multi-user blogs created entirely by the user. It offers you an opportunity to start a blog, and all your images will be hosted by picasa owned by Google. You can create a blog in the next 20 minutes, and you don’t need any knowledge of HTML, coding, or graphics design.
Create a Google Account
If you dont’ have a Google gmail account, go to the https://accounts.google.com/SignUp and fill the details, to create a Gmail account.
To create your free BlogSpot blog site, go to Blogger.Com and login using your Google account. If you’re a first time user, you’ll see an option to use the identity from limited BlogSpot profile or Google Plus profile, I suggest you to choose Google Plus profile.
Choose Your Blog Name
The first thing you need to do is type a title and address of your blog sub-domain. A sub-domain is a domain that is a part of a main domain, here blogspot.com is main domain. I recommended you to read How to Choose Domain Name of Your New Blog for more information.
Title : This text appears on your blog header.
Address : URL of your new blog.
Now select a blog template, and click on “Create Blog”. You can change the blog template anytime.
Change Blog Template
The default templates provided by blogger.com are generic and boring in my opinion. Type blogger templates in Google search, to download free templates you like.
Click on Template > Backup/Restor > Browse and upload a template.
Note : You need to upload template.xml file to change the template and don’t upload zip files.
Head over to Settings > Basic, write a description of your new blog and tap on “Privacy”, to make sure you tick the box “Yes” for add your blog to our listings and let search engines find your blog.
Go to Settings > Search Preference and write a meta tags description of your blog. This will help you to get organic traffic from Google to your blog.
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.
You can click on Posts > New post, and start writing your very first blog post!
Once you have a few blog posts up and running, you can go to “Settings” > “Earnings” and enable AdSense for your blog. This will allow you to earn money from your free BlogSpot blog.
