There are a lot of tutorials online which will help provide you how to use blogger.
Rest if you want to create self hosted blog then we can get on call for discussion.
There are many platforms where you can create your blog online. Let us look at them below.
1. WordPress (www.wordpress.org): WordPress.org is the king of free blogging sites. It is a free platform, but you need to build the site mostly by yourself afterward. You also have to host the software yourself. While you can find some free WordPress hosting, a better long-term strategy is to pay a moderate amount for a solid WordPress host. This is where Bluehost comes into play. Not only is it very cheap (just $2.95 per month on the Basic plan), but it also provides solid features, including a free domain name, 50GB of disk space, unmetered bandwidth, free SSL, and 100MB of email storage per account. At this very moment, Bluehost is the cheapest sensible WordPress hosting you can find out there. Because you are hosting the WordPress software yourself, you have full control over how your site looks and functions, as well as how you make money from your site. But the flip side is that the setup process is a little bit more hands-on. On the opposite side, there’s WordPress.com, which is the other face of WordPress – a platform used mostly for personal blogs because it’s easy to set up and free (if you’re okay not having a custom domain name). However, you are also quite limited in the way you can customize the site. And especially if your plan is to monetize your blog in any way, the free WordPress.com version will prevent you from doing that. Considering this, we recommend you get started with Bluehost. There is a 30-day money-back guarantee in place – in case you change your mind with the whole blogging experiment, just ask for a refund.
2. Wix (www.wix.com): Wix is a free website builder that can be totally managed from the front-end. The main characteristic of this platform is that it comes with drag-and-drop options, so you don’t have to handle anything in the back end. The design is very intuitive and modern, which can be used by both beginners and advanced. The nice thing about Wix is that it has free hosting included, so you just need to arrange the layouts, pick a template, and you are all set. It provides a nice collection of free and premium themes and templates for different purposes, including blogging. To launch a Wix blog, just sign up and make a choice: you can either let the Wix AI create a site for you based on a questionnaire or build your blog yourself – which includes selecting a template and arranging the layouts via the WYSIWYG editor. If you go with the second option, all you need to do is to find a beautiful template and start customizing everything on the front-end, in a live preview mode. You can add multiple elements to your pages, from multimedia widgets to backgrounds, menus, typography, forms, video boxes etc. When you think the site is ready, click Publish and start blogging your stories. After publishing, you can return anytime to edit the content blocks.
3. Weebly (www.weebly.com): Weebly is another website builder that you can use not only to blog but also to sell products or showcase your portfolio. It is somewhat similar to Wix to the extent that it provides a WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop elements. If you want to add a certain button, you can simply drag it to the page and customize it. The same happens with photo galleries, slideshows, and any other multimedia element. Weebly provides sidebars, media boxes, forms, ad spaces, social media icons, newsletter subscription, and many more. Moreover, the platform comes with built-in analytics and lets you use your own customized domain (for which you need to pay). On the free plan, you get five custom pages, a Weebly subdomain, 500MB storage, and ad spaces.
4. Medium (www.medium.com): Medium is a multipurpose platform tackling diverse topics, where anyone with an account can write. Unlike most other free blogging sites, the big advantage of Medium is that your articles will be exposed to a wide audience since the platform is visited by 60 million readers per month (and the number increases every year).
It is super simple to use – you pretty much just sign up and start writing. But the downside is that all your content is on Medium. That is, you are not really building your own “space” like you would with WordPress.
5. Ghost (www.ghost.org): This is another WordPress-like blogging platform. While the Ghost software can be downloaded for free, you need paid hosting for fuel. Digital Ocean is a great service that supports Ghost: it is cheap and comes with a bunch of nice features to get you started. To create a post in Ghost is easy once you set up your website. The editor is simple and minimalist, and it offers a live preview of your text on the right side of the screen. On the front-end, you get a Medium vibe, so it is nice. Near the editor screen, there is a sidebar with settings, where you can choose your preferences.
6. Blogger (www.blogger.com): Blogger is one of the oldest free blog sites, though its popularity has dipped in recent years. It is a solid solution for personal blogs, but it’s not the best resource for professional use. It works just like the other hosted platforms: you need to create an account first in order to use it. After you create it (which is simple), you must pick one of the default themes and you can start writing your thoughts down. This platform has an interface like a Google+ profile and the editor look like a Word page. Blogger delivers a bunch of themes to choose from, each providing different skins, advanced colour filtering, and various minimalist gadgets (aka widgets). But nothing too fancy or any advanced design customization. In general, Blogger has simple appearance options, so the focus stays more on the writing part. A nice part about this site is that it comes with ad spaces that you can place within your content pieces.
7. Tumblr (www.tumblr.com): Tumblr is one of the original free blogging sites on the web. It’s just a bit ‘milder’ than the others on the list. Unlike the rest of the platforms that are mostly created for publishing purposes, this one here is more oriented to multimedia or social media-like content. The interface of Tumblr is more playful and is easy to get started with – you can simply sign up and then you can start posting. Just like a regular blogging platform, it provides multiple post formats for different types of content. The thing with Tumblr is that it is purely for personal use and would not put up a great solution if you have business-oriented plans. It is simplistic, offers basic customization options and, like I said earlier, has more of a social media vibe. Despite not being built for business, it does let you display ads on your page, use affiliate links, and integrate your blog with Google Analytics.
8. Joomla (www.joomla.org): Joomla is similar to WordPress.org but not as obvious when considering the free blog sites available out there. Just like WordPress, the software is free but needs hosting and a domain. As in the WordPress case, we recommend Bluehost because it is both ridiculously cheap and reliable (and it includes a free domain). In general, Joomla has a flexible interface that can be used not only for blogs but also for more complex websites (you can choose from a variety of templates and extensions to add custom functionality). When it comes to the ease of use, the platform provides an old-school editor, that somehow looks like Microsoft Word. It allows you to choose the font, colour, size, emoticons, tables, or background. I mean, the tools in the menu make you feel like you are in a Word window. The Joomla editor is tabbed. The first tab is the classic texting window per se, then you need to switch tabs to select the post categories, tags, date, meta description, keywords etc.
9. Jimdo (www.jimdo.com): Jimdo is more than just an example of free blogging sites. However, in its free version, blogs are the most recommended, given Jimdo’s basic features. So you can quickly create a website with Jimdo by going through a few items (you take a basic questionnaire about your site’s purpose). After you check these options, your site is automatically created based on your picks. The downside of Jimdo is that you cannot have a custom domain (at least not for free) and you can’t remove the ads unless you upgrade. An important aspect of Jimdo, though, is that it is a page builder: you create blog posts right via the front-end and not via an editor (like the other blogs do). This means that you need to go to every content box on a live page and edit it on the spot, without being redirected to another page. The footer and the logo can be edited the same way. When it comes to the content elements, you have a few options: simple text, text with image, photo gallery, columns, buttons etc. Via the left sidebar, you can make more tweaks, such as adding the post’s date, title, category, status (published or draft), summary, and image preview. In short, your article will be entirely built from many individual elements that you will edit separately. Text, picture, button the order is up to you.
Once you have chosen the platform keep these steps in mind for creating a blog:
1. Pick a descriptive name for your blog. Use Domain Wheel to find the perfect domain name for your blog.
2. Buy a domain and get hosting for your blog. I will recommend buying hosting from Bluehost (from $2.95/month) and getting your domain name free of charge.
3. Install WordPress. You can install WordPress via the Bluehost interface with a few quick clicks.
4. Find the perfect WordPress theme or template. Personalize the design of your blog to match your taste.
5. Get some must-have WordPress plugins and add-ons. Give your blog more features like social sharing and image optimization.
6. Launch your blog and start sharing your voice with the world. Start writing, sharing and engaging with your followers on your favourite subject.
