For a new blogger, it can become a challenge.

A lot of queries creep up in the mind like “Where to buy domain name?”, “Where to host” etc.

Starting A Blog On Google

Create your google blog

1. Go to which is a free blog maker and click on “Create Your Blog”

2. It will ask to sign-in with your Google id. If you don’t have it yet, click here to get one.

3. On this page:

Create a new blog


Type in the Title for your new blog.

If your topic is cycling then it could be like “Best Cycling Group in Houston”.

Make it short. For search engine optimization purpose title length should be under 60 characters.

In the address field, type in your website name.

It would show like “” if you go for free, which is the default.

Otherwise, you can buy a domain like “”

In this step, you need to select a theme. Choose any, it can be changed later.

4. Your Free Blog On Google has been created.

It’s time to type your first post and publish.

Everything is set up.

You can change the theme, set up ads to grow your audience/traffic, setup AdSense to earn from the blog.

The learning comes when you are fairly regular with putting out useful content for your audience. Once the traffic comes like 500/day, you can earn decent with AdSense.

Buying Domain/Website Name

In order to remove from the website name, you need to buy a domain.

Google allows you to buy the domain from them when a new blog is created.

Google Domains

But the pricing is usually high.

To get a domain name at a cheap rate check this site. Plus it gives free whois protection for life.

To configure new domain name bought for the blog, click on “Settings” in the left sidebar.

Under Basic > Publishing > Blog Address > Click on “+ Set up a third-party URL for your blog”: Type-in your newly bought domain with www and click “Save”.

It will give an error like this::

Blogger settings
The error would give two columns with 2 CNAME values.

These have to be updated in domain registrar (from where the domain was bought).

For example in Namecheap,

Under dashboard, click on “Manage” next to your domain name.

Then click “Advanced DNS”.

Under “Host Records”, change the values to the ones provided by the error message.

Namecheap settings

1. Replace the first value here.
