How to Create Your Own Blog Account 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 and hosting, and figure out how to upload your work to your site. This is not so with a blog. If you create your own blog account with with a large blog network, you will actually be able to do it for free and without worry that you wont be able to figure out how to upload new pages. So how do you go about creating your own blog account? You should start by selecting the type of blog you wish to create. For instance, are you using blogs to promote your business or for to chronicle your daily life? This will affect how you go about creating your own blog account. If you're using a blog to chronicle your daily life, you may want to create an account with a network such as Myspace. Myspace will give you a simple means to design your blog, to update it, and to communicate with other network users. Creating your own blog account with Myspace is actually completely free; and you wont actually have to host the blog yourself. Instead, Myspace will host it on their own network and will also provide you with all the tools you need to update it. If you're creating your own blog account simply to promote your business, you may want to open an account with Google Blogger—especially if you do not own a website. Upon creating your own blog account, Blogger will allow you to customize the template and the subdomain you use to 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 Blogger's various options. For instance, to optimize your blog completely, you will want to consider how many posts you display on each page and whether or not you will allow comments.
