When you see above screen, click on New Blog button at the left to start to create a new blog. Note: • •

Because it's the first that you create a blog, so you see "Your Blogs (0) " at the left corner. Once your blog is created, it will change to "Your blogs (1)". You can create more than one blogs in one Google account.

Step 4: Create a new blog (b)- Blog title and url address

Type in your Blog Title and the blog address you'd like to use, then choose a blog template. • In my case, I use "how to blog" as title, and trying to use HowToBlog.blogspot.com as blog address, it shows "Sorry, this blog address is not available"- that means, the address is used by someone, I have to pick another address. • The final address I got was http://start-a-free-blog.blogspot.com/, and the blog title I used was "How to Start a Free Blog". • You can pick any template at this moment, and change it later On both the blog title and address is Ok, click on Create Blog ! button at the bottom of the page.

Step 5: Blog management interface
