Set up a Blogger blog.


There are 3 simple steps to setting up a Blogger blog, but then there are many for getting the right look and feel, user settings, features turned on and things like that. We will just be doing the 3 simple steps for now, with more advanced set up covered later in the Manage Your Blog section.

1. Set up an account

  • Open your web browser and go to:
  • Click on 'Take a quick tour' and read about blogs. Can you see how this tool could be useful?
  • Time to create your own blog, click 'Create your blog'
  • Enter your existing email address
  • Enter your preferred password for Blogger
  • Complete the rest of the page and REGISTER.

2. Set up a blog

  • Select a name for your blog. Something of professional or personal interest.
  • Select a template. Don’t worry to much about which one you use – you can change it later if you want.

3. Start posting

  • Your blog has been created, why not post something, click 'start posting', add a title and something about yourself in the message and hit 'Publish'
  • Your blog has been published successfully, have a look by clicking 'View blog'.


  • You now have address to publish to the internet.
  • Log-out of your blogger Account by choosing 'Sign Out'
