How To Start A Blog On Blogger

HOW TO START A BLOG ON BLOGGER


Are you looking for a free, easy, step-by-step guide on how to start a blog?
My free guide on this page will show you how to create a blog that is beautiful and functional, all in an easy step-by-step tutorial (with pictures).



My name is Adegoroye Tosin, and I am going to show you how to start blogging. I have been building blogs and websites since 2016. At the time I have launched several of my own blogs, and helped hundreds of others do the same.

I know that starting a blog can seem confusing and intimidating because there are so much information on the web and everyone is telling you to do different things. This free guide is all about blogging for beginners, and will teach you how to be a blogger with just the most basic computer skills no technical knowledge required.

I am not ashamed to let you that when I was first learning how to build a blog I made a ton of mistakes. You can benefit from more than a decade of my experience so that you don’t repeat these same mistakes when you make your own blog. I created this free guide so that anyone can learn how to blog quickly and easily.

What Is a Blog?

A Blog a website in which the content also known as blog post changes periodically, a blog is a very good example of dynamic website as more content is being entered the former ones goes down. we most often hear about news blogs or celebrity blog sites, but as you’ll see in this guide, you can start a successful blog on just about any niche of your choice.

Bloggers often write from a personal perspective that allows them to connect directly with their readers. In addition, most blogs also have privacy policy, about, contact us page and a “comments” section where readers can correspond with the blogger. Interacting with your readers in the comments section helps to further the connection between the blogger and the reader.

This direct connection to the reader is one of the main benefits of starting a blog. This connection allows you to interact and share ideas with other like-minded people. It also allows you to build trust with your readers.   

One thing you must know about starting a blog is that you need to be a great writer to be successful. Nothing could be further from the truth. People take their time to read blog sites to get a personal perspective on things, so you must not waste their time by giving them the wrong information you must be brief and straight to the point by giving your points in a very informal and conversational style.

This post is dedicated to the “beginners” who are new to blogging and would like to get started by learning the basics involved in the process.
Before I begin the complete tutorial, there are a couple of things you should know:

· Firstly, BlogSpot is a blogging platform powered by Google.  It offers you an opportunity to start a blog,
· Secondly, if the goal of your blog is to make money, am sorry to tell you it does not work that way focus on building a brand first then money comes in

How to Start a Blog Step By Step

1.Choose your blogging platform

2.Pick a blog name

3.Customize your blog

4.Write & publish your first post

5.Promote your blog

6. Make Money Blogging

There are many blogging platforms which offer users the ability to create free blogs. If you are looking for a simple free blog, the popular once are Blogger and WordPress my suggestion would be to start blogging with Blogger because it is free and easy to use and very suitable for beginners, and does not have limitations.

However, as I mentioned above, for a beginner it is a great way to learn how to create a blog and begin the blogging process.

To open a blogger account you must a google account first, if you don’t have I advise you open before you head to blogger.

Step 1. Choose your blogging platform

Type Blogger.com in your search engine and lets go




After loading you see something like this. Click create a new blog.






Step 2. Pick a blog name

The first step to finding a good blog name is choosing your topic.

If you’re not sure what to blog about, there are a few ways to find a good blog topic:

· Hobbies & passions. Hobbies or other interests you are passionate about are a great place to start. Cooking, travel, fashion, music, culture, sports, and cars are all classic examples. But even blogs about more obscure hobbies can be successful, since your audience is literally anyone in the world with the internet.

· Life experiences. Everyone has lessons they have learned through life experience. Sharing this knowledge can be incredibly helpful to others in similar situations. For example, I recently helped a woman start her blog about being a fireman’s wife. She has a lot of experience and knowledge to share with others about this topic, and it has helped her connect with others in similar situations.

 Think about the things you have experienced in life. This could be related to your family (example: a blog about how to overcome addictions), work (a blog about experiences dealing with clients), or other life experiences (a blog about dealing with a troubling time such as a disease or divorce, or about a happy time such as preparing for a wedding or a birth of a child).
· A personal blog. A personal blog is a blog all about you. This will include a variety of topics, from things you do on a daily basis, to random thoughts and musings. This is a great way to share your thoughts with the world without having to stick to just one topic.
Once you have a topic it’s time to choose your blog name
A good blog name should be descriptive so that potential readers can instantly tell what your blog is about just from the name.
If you are blogging about one specific topic, then you will definitely want to include that in some way in your blog name. Try not to get hung-up on just one word though. For example, a cooking blog doesn’t necessarily have to have the word “cooking” in it. The words “food”, “recipes”, and “meals” would also let people know that your blog is about cooking.

If you are planning to create a personal blog where you discuss a variety of topics then I recommend using your name, or some variation of it, since your blog is all about you. For example, I own the blog Tosincausal.com. You can also add your middle name or middle initial if you find your name is already taken. Or you could use a variation like “Tosin Segun Blog” or “Tosinseguncausal”.

Blogger will check if your blog name is available or not if it is not available there are few things you can do Example you can add a prefix like “The” “a” or “my” to the blog title e.g Thetosincausal.com.

You can also add dash. For Example Tosin-causal.com
NOTE: You cannot use any spaces or punctuation other than dashes in a domain name.



Now your blog is created, but you are not done yet!

Type your address @ blogspost.com example Letstalkrelation.blogspot.com, then choose the template of your choice.

3.Customize your blog  

Once you login you will be in the Blogger dashboard  area. This is where you can make any changes you want to your blog.

Everyone has a different idea of how they want their blog to look. One of the great things about a Blogger  blog is that you can change your entire layout and design with just a few clicks.

In Blogger, blog layouts are known as “Themes”. What is a blog theme? Themes control the entire design of your blog. To change your theme you are going to click on the “Dashboard” tab on the left menu.



You will see several themes are already installed on your blog.These are well-designed, clean-looking themes that can work for just about any type of blog. In fact, many of the world’s top bloggers use one of these themes.


Unless you have a very specific design in mind for your blog, I suggest you use one of these themes to start with. In order to activate the theme on your blog, hover over the theme and click the “Activate” button. That’s it! You have changed the entire design of your blog with just one click!


If you don’t like any of the themes that are already installed you can easily choose from thousands of other free themes. To install a new theme, online from Bloggertemplate.com.







Step4. Write and publish your first post

Now that your blog is up and running it’s time to actually do some blogging! You will see there is already a post there. This is a default post on every new WordPress blog.





Go to the left menu and click on “Posts.

If you would like to add a picture to your post, click on the “Add Media” button and click “Select Files” to upload a picture from your computer. You can make adjustments to the picture size on the next screen. When you are ready click “Insert into post” to add the picture.


Once you have finished your post just click the “Publish” button on the right side of the screen to publish it.


Publishing Your Blogs

Even after you have written a post your blog may still be showing a “Coming Soon” page.
When you are ready to make your blog public just click the “BlueHost” menu at the top left of the menu in your administrator area then click the blue “Launch” button to remove the “Coming Soon” page.





Congratulations! You now know how to start your own blog and publish content.

Step5. Promote your blog


Creating a well-designed blog and writing great content is just the start. In order to get readers for your blog you will need spend some time promoting it, especially when you first start.


One of my favorite ways to get readers to my blog is to post links on my social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter. This is great, because not only do your friends see the link, but if your friends share the link with their friends it automatically multiplies your readers. 


If you have created high-quality content on your blog then social media is a great way for your blog to go viral.


In addition to getting new readers to your blog, you will also want to make sure your current readers are coming back. This is where email marketing plays a big role.

 By collecting the email addresses of your visitors (with their permission of course), you can then notify them when you post something new on your blog.


 This keeps people coming back to your blog, which not only gives you more readers over time, it also allows you to build a closer relationship with your readers.


Step6. Make Money Blogging

Once you have put in the effort of creating great blog content and promoting your blog, making money from your blog is actually the easy part.


There are several ways you can make money blogging, from selling your own products or services, to getting paid to write reviews of products on your blog. But the easiest way to make money from your blog is to sell advertising space.


Once you have a popular blog, advertisers will be hounding you for the opportunity to advertise. The best way to take advantage of this situation is to use Google Adsense.


 They find the advertisers for you and all you have to do is place the Google Adsense code on your blog to start running ads. Google Adsense takes all of the hard work out of the process and just cuts you a check.

I hope this guide has answered any questions you had on how to start a blog. Good luck
