Let’s create your Blogger blog
To sign up for Blogger and create your own Blog page, there are some very simple steps which one has to follow.
The very first step is to register through the official web page of Blogger. The registration requires some simple information which needs to be carefully provided. This information is usually used for the purpose of logging in, or commenting or reading other blogs made by other Blogger users. Upon registration, a person has to choose his unique username which appears as a person’s name when commenting on other blog posts. Google itself has a lot of influence in this initial step. People already registered with Google mail i.e. Gmail, do not have to register. Individuals with a Gmail account can directly sign on to Blogger with their Gmail username and password.
Next step is the main process which involves making the actual blog page. After successfully logging onto Blogger, with the right username and account details, the person is directed to the main blogger page, which highlights the activities of other Blogger users regarding their recent blog posts. The other bloggers that appear in the Newsfeed page, are the ones whose blog posts the user has subscribed to. This is the case for people who already have been using Blogger for a long time. For people who are completely new to Blogger and are about to set up their page for the very first time, they are redirected to the control panel of their Blogger Account, formally known as Dashboard.
Dashboard is the main user interface system in Blogger which is used to manage the Blog website pages which the user creates or has previously created. A list of options is available for the user to alter changes to their blog. People who are about to set up their new blog will not see much of the options, as there will be no blogs available to manage. To start the new blog page, there is an option available on the blog page referred to as ‘create a new blog’. This option will direct the user to a page where specific details regarding new blog page have to be submitted. The page mainly asks for the name of the blog which the user has planned to set up. Also, most importantly, this step requires one to set up a domain or URL link for people to directly access.
After deciding a suitable name and domain link to the blog, the next step is to choose the theme of the Blog. The theme refers to the color scheme which the blog will appear in. Blogger has many templates which one can choose from for their blog. One also holds the option to change the theme of their blog whenever they feel the need for a change in their blog’s appearance. After this, the user is ready to publish content on their blog page.
The most important aspect of blogging is to always post content which is unique and 100 percent original. There are many copy filters which are applied on the content, before it is published.
