While keeping most of customisation options open! Now, I'll guide you step-by-step to help you start a blog or website using blogger.

    It's best if you open a new tab in your browser, and then visit You'll need a e-mail ID to make an account with blogger, most people use gmail however, in case you don't you can just create an account while you follow through with these instructions. Then just click on "Create Your Blog" and either sign in to your gmail account or make a new account.

    choose your blog's name
    After you're signed in using your gmail or create an aaccount you'll be presented with a screen that asks you to name your blog. You might want to have a name ready at this point so you can type it in and get on over to the next step.
    Get your free domain from blogger
    choose your blog's name
    Now, you'll be asked to choose a URL for your blog. Don't get confused if you don't know what this means. URL means the address for your blog, this will be the free ".blogspot[.]com" domain you get from Google. Tip: it's a really good practice to use the name of your blog without any spaces here. Blogger will let you know if the name is available or if you need to change it. Your final URL will probably look like: "thenameyouchose[dot]blogspot[dot]com". Don't worry, you can always upgrade it to to something like: thenameyouchose[dot]com later.I'm linking to a tutorial for the same if you'd like to do so.

It's important to use your actual name or a pen name here if you will. You want people to know that an actual human writes your blog, right? I also see some people use their business name and I think that works as well if you are a business or more than one person running the blog or website.
