Having a blog is a good thing, because you can share everything you want (... and if you make sense, you can also make a decent income from your blog).

I have blogging platforms that create a blog for yourself. I generally recommend creating a blog with your own domain and hosting and creating your blog using WordPress (.org).

BlogSpot allows you to create a blog for free, but it has limitations.

This post is dedicated to "beginner" newbies to blogging and who would like to start learning the basics of the process.


Before getting into the full tutorial, you should know a few things: 

First, BlogSpot is a blogging platform powered by Google. It allows you to create a blog, but all your photos are hosted on Picasa (also part of Google). BlogSpot is Google's no-nonsense blogging platform.

Second, if the goal of your blog is to raise money and have a professional looking blog, I would recommend creating your blog with WordPress. It's easy and with our exclusive free WordPress guide you can create your blog in 60 minutes.


To create your free BlogSpot blog, go to and sign in with your Google account.If you are a new user, you will see the opportunity to use your Google Plus profile identity, or you can use your limited BlogSpot profile.

You are now in the BlogSpot panel where you will see the background of your blog.

You can read my post on why you need an "About" page for your blog.

The most important thing is to change your blog template, as the default template is general and tedious (in my opinion).


Here I have free BlogSpot templates that and install on blog. You can also go to "Settings"> "Template" and change the template from there.


On this page you can also add a logo to your BlogSpot blog title and add or remove various other features.


Once you have created some blog posts, go to "Settings"> "Revenue" and enable AdSense for your blog. This allows you to earn money through your free blog BlogSpot.


Then your blog is almost ready and you can start writing posts. There are a few more things that I recommend you do.
