How To Create a blog that Blogger will host for free

Before you can create a free blog on BlogSpot, Blogger's hosting service, you need to have already created an account on blogger.com. After creating this account, you can then log into your brand new Blogger account to create a blog.

How do I create a Blogger account?

In order to get started with Blogger, you'll first need to create an account. On the Blogger homepage, click the "Create Your Blog Now" button:

STEP 1: Click the 'Create Your Blog Now' link

On the following page you'll be prompted to create a Google Account. You can also use your Google Account on other Google services. If you already have a Google Account perhaps from Gmail, Google Groups, or Orkut, please sign in first.

After you've done that, you'll need to enter a display name and accept Blogger's Terms of Service. Once you're done with this, you'll be prompted to 'Create a Blog' (see below) and get started!

Once you've logged into your blogger.com account, click the Create a Blog link above your list of blogs:

STEP 2: Click the 'Create a Blog' link

On the next step, enter a Title and Address (URL). You'll also need to type in the verification word displayed on this page, to confirm that you are a real person and not a computer (see image below):

When you're done, click continue.

On Step 3, you can then choose a template for your blog; the template is the 'cloth' that your blog will wear when you publish it. Click 'Continue' and Blogger will create your new blog and reserve your spot on BlogSpot.

As soon as you make your first post, your page will appear at the address you chose. You're all ready to blog!

Please Note:
Blogger is disabling support for legacy accounts on June 25th, 2011. If you haven't logged in since 2007, you'll need to update your account or you will lose access to the account and any associated blogs.
