Creating your own blog account is relatively easy, especially when compared to building a website. Even if you’re using a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) editor to build a simple website, you will still have to design every page, purchase a domain, host it and figure out how to upload your work to your site. However, this is not the case with setting up a blog. If you create your own personal blog account with a large blog network, you will actually be able to do it for free and without worrying that you wont be able to figure out how to upload new pages.
So how do you go about creating your own blog account? To begin with, you need to consider which type of blog you want to create. For instance, are you using blogs to promote your business or to chronicle your daily life? Which ever you decide, it will help to determine which type of blog you should create.
If you’re using a blog to chronicle your daily life, you may want to create an account with a network such as Myspace. You can find easy to follow instructions on Myspace to help you create your blog, keep it updated and share it with other users. The cost for creating your own blog on Myspace is free and another great benefit is that you wont have to be in charge of hosting it. Instead, Myspace will host it on their own network and will also provide you with all the tools you need to update it.
People that want to use their blog to help promote their business and do not want to create their own website, can go to places like, ’Google Blogger’ to open an account. After you create your own account, Google Blogger will provide you a template that you can customize, as well as, allow you to make a subdomain title from which you will display your blog. If you’re trying to target a specific keyphrase with your blog, you may want to use that exact keyphrase as the subdomain.
Once you have completed this process, you will want to spend some time searching through the many Blogger various options that are available. Finally, to get the most out of blog building, you will need to think about the types of posts you want to display on your pages and if you want to allow comments or not, as this will help you have a great new blog that you can be proud of.
