Blogs have been used by many people to share their personal experiences, to advertise their products and others to simply keep their friends and family updated. In order for the blog to serve its purpose, it has to be started in the right way. In most cases, blogs are created for free and bloggers can use their blogs to vent and relieve stress in whatever way they please. Nowadays, the biggest reason why people start blog pages is so that they can make money. The first step is finding the correct provider. Most providers have templates that people can use to create the blog they want. This makes it easier for internet users who are not very computer savvy to create blogs and customize them to suit what they want to create. After signing up, there is a wide array of colors and schemes that users can choose from based on what they want the blog page to be about.

After choosing the theme that one wants, the next step in starting a blog is personalizing the page by adding one’s interests, pictures and their name among other personal features they want. One can also add comment boxes, photo galleries, a members section as well as guestbooks to make the page more interesting. Most providers have these features included in their templates and they simply choose what they want to include on their pages and what they want to keep out. To make it more appealing, beginners can look at other professional blog pages to get ideas on how they can make their blog page more interesting. Deciding whether the site will be public or private is the next step. If it is private, internet users will have to join the site in order to view the content and no one else will have access. To ensure that access is not denied to anyone, create public sites and add passwords to sections that are meant to be private.

After all that has been done, it is important to test the layout of the blog by posting a few entries and seeing how they will turn out. Bloggers can make changes to the blog by changing the font color and size as well as any other features one wants to change. The background colors can also be changed at this point as well as the arrangement of the features that are already on the blog page. To do this, simply drag and drop the features to the new position that one wants them to be placed. If the blogger is happy with their newly created blog, they can now start posting blog entries to be viewed by the public.
