More and more people are realising that blogging is one of the best ways to start your own online business. It requires minimal start up costs, you can build an impressive and loyal readership over time and once you know how to monetize your blog it can also bring in a decent income that will keep on coming even on the days when you don’t update your blog.
There are several ways to set up a blog online. You could use WordPress, Blogger, or another free site that hosts your blog for you; or alternatively you can set up your own blog under your own domain name.Here I have given some screen-shots and steps for starting a blog in Blogger platform
Step 1: Choose a free blogging software.
Visit the Blogger.com home page and select the "Create Your Blog Now" button to begin the process to start your new Blogger.com blog.
Step 2: Create a Google Account
If you don't already have a Google account, you'll need to create one by completing the form on this page.
Step 3: Sign In with Your Google Account
If you already have a Google account then you can bypass the step of creating a new Google Account and just sign in with your existing Google account with your own username and password. BTW,every single Google account is valid for entering into the Blogging world .It can be with yours or you can create another if you want your id to be hidden.
Step 4: Name Your New Blog
Enter the blog name and corresponding domain name (*****.blogspot.com') in the spaces provided.
Step 5: Choose a Template
Select a standard template for your new blog.
Step 6: Congratulations - Your New Blog is Active!
Your blog is now live and ready for you to start writing content.
Step 7: Write Your First Post
That's all there is to it! You're now ready to write your first blog post in your new Blogger.com blog and join the blogosphere.
After writing your first post,click publish for the world to see.Success!!You are almost done :)
Once you’re ready to set your blog up you’ll need to choose a good theme and layout for it. There are also thousands of templates available for you to use – a simple search on Google will reveal the ones that will be best suited to your topic.But perhaps the most important question is what you are going to blog about. The whole world is your oyster here – some people blog about their lives in general; some blog about their jobs; some blog about their hobbies; some tell the world about their kids and what it’s like to be a parent, and still others blog about the weird world of celebrities. But whatever you choose to blog about it needs to be something you are passionate about.
