How to create a blog, upload a photo and publish a post: Video
Video tutorial: Creating a blog
I am Caul Gutsener and I am a Support Coordinator for Blogger. Today I am going to provide a short demo on how to quickly create a blog in only a few minutes. To get started, go to www.blogger.com. If you already have a Google account, type in your username and password and click SIGN IN. If you don't already have a Google account, click the CREATE YOUR OWN BLOG and you can easily create an account. Please note, you can easily use any email address to sign up for a Google account. Click on the CREATE YOUR BLOG NOW button or CREATE A BLOG link to start a new blog. Create a title for your blog and an address. You may be prompted to verify a random word on the screen, so just type the letters provided. Then click CONTINUE.
Next choose a template from our library by clicking the circle next to the name of the template and then click CONTINUE. And don't worry, you can easily change the template later. Your blog is now ready for you to add you posts. Click START POSTING. Use our text editor (I call it post editor) to create text for your blog. Write as much as text as you want.
To add an image, click on the image icon in the tool bar above the text box. Once you clicked the image icon, a window will appear where you can select your image either from your desktop (computer) or from the web. In this case, I am going to select an image from my hard drive which I want it in the upper right-hand corner and I want it to be large. Then click UPLOAD IMAGE to continue (note: I believe that if this is the first time you are uploading an image, Blogger will require you to their agree to their conditions by ticking a radio button). You post it to your new blog, and now it's time to view it. Click the VIEW BLOG link. Here is your blog! Pretty neat. Now you have new blog, you should send your blog link (URL) to your friends and family. For more information about Blogger, go to Blogger Tips and Tricks
