A Beginner's Guide on How to Create a Free Blog on Blogger


Blogging is not only about sharing anything you want but also a great way to earn some decent amount of money. Most people start a blog by signing up for a paid hosting account on a platform i.e. BlueHost, but if you have not any initial investment, some platforms allow users to create a blog for free.

Blogger (also known as Blogspot) is one of those platforms which you can use to start a blog for free, but with some limitations. However, it is an excellent platform for beginners to start their blogging journey.

What is Blogspot?

Blogspot is a platform that allows you to create a blog without spending a single penny. You just need to create an account on Blogger and you will be provided with a free blog having blogspot.com domain.

Initially, you can start from a free blog on Blogger, to gain some blogging experience. Later, you can purchase your domain to give your blog a professional look or you can also transfer your blog to professional web hosting platforms e.g. WordPress, BlueHost e.t.c. to make your blog professional.

Creating a free blog on Blogger is an easy process, but before starting the tutorial, I would like to mention a couple of things about Blogger:

  1. Blogger (BlogSpot) is a Google-hosted platform, so you are going to create a free blog on Google and all your data (images e.t.c.) will be hosted by Google itself.

  2. Blogger is an excellent platform for beginners and a great way to learn to blog, but it is not such an efficient platform where you can start professional blogging. So if your goal to have a professional blog, you'll have to create a blog using some other platform like WordPress.

So you decided to start a free blog using blogger, it's a good decision and will lead you to a bright future. Just follow this simple and easy guide on how to start a blog for free.

Step-by-Step Guide on How to Start a Free Blog on Blogger

As, Blogger is a Google-hosted platform, so a Gmail account is required to create a blogger profile to create a free blog. If you have not a Gmail account, you can Sign up and create an account here.

Now go to blogger.com and click the 'Create' your blog button at the center of the page. You can also click the Sign-in button at the top right corner to sign in using your Gmail account.


Enter your email address and password to complete the sign-in process.


Enter the personal name or your blog name in the 'Display Name' box, which will be used as the author of the blog. Click the 'Continue to Blogger' button to continue.


On the next screen, click the Create a New Blog Button to create your first blog.


You'll be asked for a blog name and a blog address. A blog address is a unique name through which the user can reach your blog. Enter any name you want for your blog in 1st Box (Name) and enter a short, unique, and relevant word in the 2nd Box (Address). Choose a beautiful and suitable template from the 3rd Box (Theme) and click the Create Blog button. You can also change this Theme later.


Congratulations! You have created your first blog successfully, but the game is not over here. Your blog theme may look dirty in the first view with useless things in the sidebar and footer, so you need to make your blog clean. To do so, head over to the Layout tab and remove unnecessary widgets by clicking the pencil icon and removing them.


Your blog is now ready. Go to the post tab and click on the 'Create new post' link or New Post button.


A new screen will open where you can see a bar as Post Title and a body to write what you want. Add a title to your post, having less than 60 characters, and relevant to your body content. Click Labels in the right sidebar, a box will appear. Now add labels according to your posts and Save Post. Now click the publish button to post your article to your blog.
