1. Create a gmail account:
The first thing for you to do in getting started is to create an account on gmail, and those that already have an account there can possibly go to blogger.com to create a new blog there.

3.Name your blog.
Now it is the best time to think of a name that is search engine friendly. I’ll advice you to give a lot of thought on getting an attractive name for your subdomain. Most important, names that can suit well to the niche you want to start blogging on. For instance, like myself now, my blog name is yourblogcoach; I chose this because I wanted to teach new bloggers and others the secret behind blogging. So it’s about teaching.
4.Choose a template for your blog.
There are lots of free templates you can chose from blogger’s archive for your new blog. This template determines how your blog look and how the elements are laid.
Looking at mine own template now, it’s a blogger template and you can see how cool and calm the look is? Therefore my advice for you is to choose a template that will be search engine and user friendly. An advantage in blogger platform is that you can always change the template later, whenever you see anyone that pleases you.

But to give you a green light, I think getting a high quality content published should be a priority. Why did I mention high quality? I mean a self -made article that will introduce visitors and readers to your new blog. You’ll tell them what you are about to start on the blog and you vision in the next few years. Now read what next, after creating a blog?
