An Introduction To Blogging and The Free Site Blogger
How to get started with Blogger.com
It is really quick and easy to get started in Blogging. Within minutes you can have your own Blog up and running in no time by using the Blogger platform.
As well as writing content for your Blog you can set it up to show Adsense ads and also Amazon capsules. Whatever you choose to do you are able to monetise your Blog.
As with all things Google you are able to track the success of you Blogger Blogs via Adsense and Google Analytics so you can determine where your traffic is coming from and how much traffic. Within your Blogger dashboard you are able to check your site's stats and how much revenue each Blog is making for you.
It's free so get started.
Using Blogger.com is free and gives you lots of space to build an array of your own Blogs or if you only want one then that is fine. I am currently working with 11 on my Blogger dashboard and am intending to build at least 20, but that is fodder for another hub.
All I want to do for the present is to introduce you to the platform so you can make a start using the site and get your Blog up and running.
To get your free site search for blogger.com in Google and follow the sign up link.
Sign up for your new account and start setting up your Blog immediately.
Using the templates within the blogger dashboard you can choose the look you want to create.
Whilst doing this you can play around with various templates or even decide on a custom look using photographs or other documents you may have saved to your computer.
If you look at the links below you will see examples of the different templates I have used and the effect you can get with your own photographs.
Using Blogger to promote Hub Pages
Blogger is ideal for promoting your Hub Pages and you can link up with social media accounts such as Facebook and Twitter as well as Google+. Personally I have found Twitter to be the best place to send links from your Blogger sites promoting your Hub Pages.
As with Hub Pages Blogging requires interesting and regularly updated information and content in order to get your followers coming back on a regular basis to read your posts.
If you supply good quality content then I am sure that you will get all the traffic you need. Like Hub Pages it takes time to build a good following and it is no different in Blogging. Be patient but persistent and keep putting the work in and the results will follow.
Your first Blog is set up...now what?
So your first Blog is up and running....now what?
My advice to you is to write about things you know the most about.
For many people the thing you know the most about is YOU! Why not start there if you are unsure what to start writing about. In any case remember that good content is what your Blog requires and that can sometimes mean linking up with other Blogs.
Whatever you choose to write about make sure it is something you have an interest in and it will show.Unique content is the way to go so you can carve yourself a profitable niche.
