How to create a blog


									                                  HOW TO CREATE YOUR OWN BLOG


There are many definitions when we start asking what blog is. But before I give you my own
definition, let me feed you with some definition that was given by some pro bloggers.

1: Blog is the arrangement of image, videos, and data chronologically which is viewable with
HTML brows or its equivalent.

2: Blog is a way by which some people try to tell others what they should know about them, by
arranging their text and image in a chronological way so that they could be easily understood.

3: A blog is a place where by an event be it past or coming can be discoursed, while the
conversation is going on, the people that are discoursing the event are trying to do what is called
blogging while the creator of the event or the writer is known as a blogger.

  With these three examples, I assume you understand what the blog is. But if you are still
confused, let me explain it in a simple form.
Blog is a place where you can discourse about your school, office, your life, who you are, what
you do, take some picture and upload it to you blog, invite your friends and your friends invite
their friend, you can even discourse the subject or a lecture you didn't understand in a class and
the person that understood it will explain it for you. I mean it is fun when you understand what
blogging is and you start doing it .The most fun part of blog is that it allows you to monetize you work by
registering with Google AdSense and adding your code in your blog which makes you some cool
money when people click on the link your code is pointing at. You can also add you affiliate
links in your blog and make money when your visitor registers to your affiliate site through you,
we call it referral. I know you are being confused by now, I will explain everything I mean by
monetizing. But first have you understand what I mean by blog. Now let me show you what blog
looks like. But first do you have Google or Gmail address?
If you don’t have, just go to and sign up for one, it is easy to do.
   How You Can Sign Up For Gmail Account.

                                         Click where you see Gmail in
                                         Google website and this is what
                                                See when you click it.
                                              New To Gmail?      CREATE AN ACCOUNT

Sign in

If your Gmail account is created, you can now go to to create an account and get
your own Blog address. But remember you can also create a Blog with any e-mail from any
known website as long as it is functional. But using Google account should be more advisable.

Now you have created your Gmail account, type and click enter. See example

                                Sign up for a new Google Account

Sign in
                                   Your e-m
