Every day, thousands of people are starting their own new blogs with the niche they're expert at, even some of them are taking blogging as a profession. After all, they're all getting paid by Adsense. But if you are thinking to start a blog to earn tons of money, then you're not probably going to get there.

Blogging is all about passion and hard-work, if you're expert at any topic or niche, blogging might be a right choice for you! But, you must be a passionate hard-worker, or else you're not going to climb until the end to grab the rewards for all your efforts!

Once, you establish your blog with minimum subscribers, you are allowed to turn your blog into a money-making machine using Google Adsense advertising program.


Why Choose Blogspot Platform?

Nowadays, many blogging platforms offer users the ability to create free blogs, some of them are Blogger.comWordPress.com, and WordPress.org. But if you are seeking to create a simple free blog without investment, my suggestion would be to start blogging with Blogspot (Blogger) platform.

The popular Blogger is powered by Google Inc. Thus, it's easier to use and best for newbie bloggers. Once you have some blogging experience, you can migrate your blog to WordPress Self-hosted platform and become more professional with it.

So, this article is dedicated to the “beginners” who are new to blogging and would like to get started by learning the basics involved in the process.

Before I begin the tutorial, there are a couple of things you must know!

Blogger (Blogspot) was developed by Pyra Labs, which was hired by Google in 2003. Generally, the blogs on blogger are hosted by Google at a subdomain of "blogspot.com". Blogs can also be hosted in the registered custom domain of the blogger (like www.example.com). According to blogger, a user can have up to 100 blogs per Gmail account.

It offers you an opportunity to start a blog, but all your images will be hosted by Picasa (also part of a google).


How to select Niche of your new blog?

Make a list of your interests or hobbies.

Which topics fascinate you?

List them all, for instance: Editing, exercise, playing games, cooking, consulting, sports, etc. Next, list accomplishments you are proud of, such as musical talent, artistic talent or sports achievements.

Now, list difficulties you have overcome or defeated, such as: losing a significant amount of weight, invented a special meal or managing a disease.

During the course of this exercise, you will get a better feeling for the topics that resonate with you. The ones that you are most passionate about are the best candidates for your niche.

To create your first blog, you need to head over to blogger website. Once you get there, you need to sign up using your Gmail account. If you don’t have a Gmail account, you can always create one for free using your phone number.

While creating your blog, for a first time user, you will see an option to use the identity from your Google Plus profile, or you can use your limited BlogSpot profile. Remember, you can always change author profile for your blog.

Now, once you are logged in, click on “new blog” and perform the below steps.

Note: Millions of people have already taken URL address for their blogs, so during the search process you might not get your desired address(). So, to solve this problem, choose 4-5 web addresses for the blog so that you can get the most relevant address for your new site.

"Widget is a sidebar box used to modify the design and content of the blogs using a simple drag-and-drop system without changing template's HTML or CSS codes". In short, Blogger widget contains Javascript codes to show related posts, popular posts, subscription form or sign up form, contact us form and many more!
