Step 1 - Get yourself a blog

Here's how you get your very own (free!) blog:

Step 1 - Go to www.blogger.com

Step 2 - Follow the instructions to create an account. just note:
  • Dn't get hung up if you can't ge the name you want - it doesn't really matter

  • don't get hung up if the name you want to call your blog is different from the URL you have to choose. There is no reason why you can't call your blog "blogger" for example, but you may have to choose a URL something like "blogger123456"

  • don't get hung up with this talk of URL's, it is really easy, just do it

  • Make sure you remember your name and password!

  • Don't worry about chosing a template - change it later, but see my warnings!


  • Step 3 - Congratulations! You are now a blogger!

    You will be offered to go to the "Create Post" page. Do it, and poke around the settings. See my post on "Tuning" for the important stuff.

    Note: Since I wrote this Blogspot has updated, as a result there are a few whizzy ways to change your template in the new version. However, if you want a more basic version you can choose the "Classic" template option. These instructions are for the older version. Don't worry too much about the changes.

    Comments:
    After reading your letter in AP I looked on your blog to see how you'd done it. It was something I'd been thinking about doing for a month or so but didn't have a clue how to. Thanks so much for doing this "how to.." blog, I've now posted my first which is very rough and ready and I'm technically not familiar with it but I'm sure I'll learn.

    Anyway, love what you're doing, this is what I've been needing from my photography, thanks again!
