#BloggingTips – How To Set Up A Blog (From Scratch)

Screen Shot 2013-09-22 at 18.52.40

Heyy! I’m back with another installment of my blogger tips and this has been a popular one. The video went live on my vlog channel last week and I’ve received such a great response, I’m really hoping those of you seeing it now for the first time find it useful too. I initially planned to post pictures and a step by step for this but it just seemed better to do it as a video tutorial, hopefully you agree. In the video I cover everything you need to know when setting up a blog from the ground up using blogspot. I’ve already had some questions about adding to the basics such as how to add social media icons that I will address in a follow up post (if not video) but if you have any additional questions leave a comment below.

You can check out my test blog here – there’s nothing to see it’s just if you want to get a feel for the site yourselves I guess and see first hand some of the things I showed in the video

    Hey, I know you moved over to wordpress a while back, would you do a similar thing but showing wordpress, I have never used it but I thought about trying it.

    It was very informative even though i have been using blogger for almost five years!

      that’s a tougher video since you have to buy a domain name and hosting so I would have to be creating it for a reason
