What is a blog?

A blog is a portable website for displaying information. It is an online platform where an individual or a writer shares his or her views on a subject.

What is a blog used for?

A blog is used for sharing quality information on a topic or niche, and become a professional or an authority in that niche.

Also, a blog is used to attract visitors to your site through insightful content, and as they become regular fans of your site, those visitors turn into useful leads that can easily purchase your products when you finally launch one. Your blog should provide quality information to make it useful to visitors accessing your site.

Blogging is so vast and interesting because you can blog about anything topic that interest you, mostly if you are passionate about that topic. For example, if you are passionate about fashion, you can blog about fashion. There’s practically nothing you can’t blog about.

Creating your own blog is very simple and with the simple steps I will show you in this post, and you will have your own blog and guess what? It is 100% free.

There are platforms you can use to create or set up your own blog. You can set up your own beautiful blog using Bluehost, WordPress, Blogger from google. But for beginners or starters, I will advise you to use blogger to start a blog because it is simple.

Starting a blog using WordPress as a beginner or a starter might be too technical for you because it is more advance than the rest platforms and you might get discouraged to continue your desire to blog.

Enough of the talk, let’s begin with how to create a blog with blogger.

How to Create a blog with blogger.

1. Sign in to using your gmail address and password.

Your google gmail account is the login details you need to access blogger because blogger is owned by Google. If you don’t have a gmail account, create one right now.

2. When you login into, click on the down arrow on the left side of the page.

3. Click on the ‘’create a new blog’’.

4. Enter the name you want for your blog.

The name should be what you want your blog to be known for, something that expresses your passion.

The name or title of your blog expresses what your blog is all about. So you should choose a well inspiring title for your blog.

5. After that, choose the blog address you want.

The blog address is the domain name of your blog. In this section, just write only the address name without adding “.com” to it because for now, your address is attached to Blogspot domain. For example, your address is ‘’loveme”, google will add ‘’’’ to it; so your address will be ‘’

Also, if the address name you want to use is not available, you will be notified immediately and they will require you to choose another. So think properly before you pick a blog address name.

6. Choose the template you want.

A template is an already made design of how you want your blog to look. If you don’t like the free templates given by blogger platform, then you can install a more advanced template to give your blog a better look.

7. When you have done the above steps, click on ‘’Create blog’’.

When you click on the “create a new blog” button, a new interface will open up to you. This new section is known as the “admin backend office”.

Admin Back-end Office

The admin backend office is where you carry out anything you want to see in your blog. This office has some specific sections and each of these sections has specific functions and you need to know what each of them represents otherwise, you may make some errors that will affect your blog negatively. Let us look at what each of them represents briefly.

1. Posts:

This is where you write your articles and publish or draft them.

2. Stats:

This is where you check the statistics of your blog to know how well it is doing on search engines and how many persons have seen your blog and posts.


This is where you see the comments of your users on your blog posts without going to your site to view those comments.

4. Earnings:

When you finally connect your blog to Google Adsense, what you earn from each click will display in this section.

5. Pages:

This section is for stand-alone pages like Home, About, Contact us, Disclaimer, Privacy policy, etc.

6. Layout:

This is where you arrange how you want your blog to look. If there is something you don’t in your blog and you want to remove it, you can do that in the layout of your blog.

Also, if you want to install any Html code on your blog to display a new section or plugins on your blog, you can still do that on the layout.

7. Theme:

If you want to insert any code in your blog, you go directly to the theme section of your blog. It is basically a section where you carry out some configuring.
