Having a blog is essential to build your digital presence. Digital presence is the base to generate content for your business or brand.
And if you have content about your brand you will be able to share it on social media channels by you or by your readers.
This will propagate your message, your products, your brands name, etc.
And your chances to be found by your potential customers will increase enormously!
You have already decided that you want to create your own blog, but you do not know where to start. Well, don’t worry! Here’s a step by step guide on how to create a blog with Blogger. Very easy!
But if you feel like that might be a little bit complicated for you, you still have the option to create your blog on Blogger (absolutely easy!).
Blogger is the blog platform of Google, and with this step by step tutorial you will have your own blog in 5 minutes!!
The easiest way to Create a Blog. Step by Step Guide.
Go to www.blogger.com, click on <Create your blog>; and the first thing you will find is that it asks you to log in.
Blogger belongs to Google and you just need to type the same credentials that you use for Gmail, Google Drive, Google+, etc.
You can login with your account credentials, or create a new account (just choose <Create an account> below the login information).
Now click on <New Blog>. A new window will appear called “Create a new blog”. This is where you must enter the title that you want for your blog, then the web address for your blog and finally choose the template of your choice (there are lots of them!).
Your URL (web address) will end by “.blogspot.com” because it is a free service provided by Google. This can be changed later. Choose one of the templates, although you do not need to worry too much because you can always edit or change the blog template for a different one at any time.
Since we currently have a domain name with “blogspot.com” extension, it asks us if we want to buy a personal domain (that won’t have that “blogspot” extension).
If you wish, you can click search and a list of available domain names will be displayed. To buy, simply click on the “buy” button. However I advise against making the purchase of a domain name here, because it will be very pricey. My advice is, if you want to buy a domain name, do it in Namecheap.
If you do not understand very well that I am talking about domain name etc, read this article so you can understand a little better: What is a domain name.
Once you click on <Create blog>, you already have your blog officially. Congratulations!
On the left side you will see all the options you have: posts, statistics, comments, earnings (if you have Google Adwords account), campaigns, pages, etc ….
“Templates”: It shows you all the templates availabe but in a wider range of colors than the ones you saw in step two. You can edit the HTML and preview the mobile version.
“Layout” is where you take control over the layout of the different elements or blocks of your blog. You can move each block and put and remove content very easily. If you want a different layout or layout of the sidebar or sidebar of your blog, this is where you can handle it.
Now you are ready to write your first post!
And of course, when you have created your blog, leave the link here below so that we can see it (maybe you don’t know it yet, but having visits on your blog is something that you will like very much).
Any questions, please, ask me anything you want.
Happy blogging !!
