Basics Of How To Start A Blog Page

Blogs have been used by many people to share their personal experiences, to advertise their products and others to simply keep their friends and family updated. Whatever the reason one is starting a blog, it has to be done the right way so that it can serve the purpose it is intended. Blogs can now be created for free by many providers and users use them to reduce their stress. However, most people create blogs nowadays to make money. The first step is finding the correct provider. Most of these providers provide free templates. This makes it very easy for even beginners to create their own blog pages. After signing up, there is a wide array of colors and schemes that users can choose from based on what they want the blog page to be about.

The next step in starting a blog after choosing the theme and color is making the page more personal by adding pictures, interests, name and any other features they feel will make it personalized. One can also add comment boxes, photo galleries, a members section as well as guestbooks to make the page more interesting. These features come with most templates offered by providers and bloggers have the option of choosing what features they want to include and what they want to leave out. To make the page even more interesting, bloggers can get ideas from other blog pages that have been done by professionals. The next step is making a decision as to whether the status of the blog will be public or private. It is important to note that if the blog is private, only people who have joined the site will be able to view its content. To avoid this, it is important to create public blog pages and putting password for sections that should be private.

The next step is trying out the layout of the blog by posting a few entries and examining the outcome. Bloggers can make changes to the blog by changing the font color and size as well as any other features one wants to change. The background colors can also be changed at this point as well as the arrangement of the features that are already on the blog page. To move the features, simply drag and drop it to the new place where it should be. If the blogger is happy with their newly created blog, they can now start posting blog entries to be viewed by the public.
