How Easy is it to Setup a Blogger Account?

Setting up an account with Blogger is simple and easy! In 3 steps, you will have a new blog where you can write and publish anything you want. Blogger lets you post text, photos and even video. You will also be able to customize your blog with hundreds of different options to make it as unique as you are. Let’s get started!

Step 1 - Create a Google Account

The first thing you need to do is go to Blogger. You’ll land on the log in page. This is where you will log in after your account is set up. To begin the set up process, click CREATE YOUR BLOG NOW. On this screen you will choose your account name. If you already have a Google account, such as a Gmail e-mail address, you can use this and it will have the same username and password. To set up a blogger account using this username and password, simply click sign in first at the top of the Create a Google Account page.
