BlogSpot is a blogging platform powered by Google. Google’s Blogspot/Blogger allows you to create a blog site for free. 

Moreover, blogspot/blogger allows you to start earning money from ad revenue as you grow your audience. So there’s no reason not to create your blog today. It’s very easy and quick so you don’t have to worry about time spent.

Whether you want to flex your writing muscles, market your brand, a support a cause - Blogspot has the design for you. 

Before we begin, you need to understand that Blogspot and Blogger are related but they are not the same. Blogger is the dashboard you use to manage your Blogspot blog. On the other hand, Blogspot is the root domain of your blog. This means that your blog will be stored on blogspot.com. For example, NameOfYourBlog.blogspot.com.

Learn how to create a Blog on Blogspot by following these easy steps:

Step 1: Sign up for Blogger

First of all, click on the link "Blogger.com" to go to Blogger home page and sign up 

Step 2: Create or Sign in to Google account (Gmail)

Because Blogger is a Google service, you need to have a Google (Gmail) account before you can create your blog.

Then click “Create Your Blog”, It will take you to a Google sign-in or sign up page. If you already have a Google account, enter your email address click “Next”, then enter your password and click “Next” again. You are now signed in.

Now that you have a blog, what do you do?  You can start by customizing your blog to your desired look, style, and feel. A bad, confusing blog design will only scare away your visitors.

Step 4: Customize Your Blog

Customizing Blog Theme

You customize your blog by means of Premade Blogger themes. To begin, click “Themes” and backup your current theme via the arrow beside “CUSTOMIZE.”  After you can scroll through the wide range of themes until you find the one you like. Try it; if it fits then apply it.

If you are having trouble with choosing a theme, don’t worry - you can always come back to customize it later. 

There are so many blog templates available for blogspot blogs. Fortunately, you can use most of them for free, although you need to pay few bucks if you want to get the premium blogger templates to make your blog design even more stunning and unique. 

Creating an "About" page

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.

By doing so, you’ll have more chances of getting approval for your AdSense account.

Once you have some good blog posts up and running for a couple of months, you can check on blogger dashboard if you are eligible to connect to Adsense by going to “Earnings” tab to see if you are ready to connect and monetize your blog with AdSense.
