How to create a free WordPress site using Byethost
You went ahead and do all you can to join the get rich platform as proclaimed by your ignorant thoughts. Now another year is fast approaching you are still struggling with your blog at least to get traffic and create better contents for human and search engines but before you could know it a whole year is gone hahahaha and the worst of it is that the year finished in a bad mood(where you don't have money to renew your host) hmmm what a mess you have got yourself into.
You hosting managers are beginning to send you notice upon notice telling you to renew your domain and host else you will get blocked in the next one week. You have no money so you just have to let go the whole one year hard labour. it a pity I share your pain but i can't help issues here so let it be.
Now you heard about a free platform blogger.com where you can blog without paying any money except for your domain name I.e if at all you want to be a pro blogger. but you don't know how to start with blogger. though there have been millions of tutorials online on how to create blogger blog but today am still going to show you in a more comprehensive way. don't be scared am not going to charge you!!! *smiles****
Creating blogger site is the most easiest host but the only dilemma here is that opera mini browser don't support blogger unlike wapka and WordPress where you can blog with opera.
As i write this post i must tell you i have been using opera to blog for over 4months now without any issues of error so i wrote about How to blog on blogger.com using opera mini browser but ever since then i have received tones of messages that it didn't work on their mobile phones and that the usual error messages continues.
I have to thank God perhaps the spirit of blogging has struck my phone or the phone knows my current situation of no money for big subscription. You can also try yours if your phone will pity you but in case it did not am sorry i can't help but here am flexing wooooooo***happy** But let get to business anyway with your chrome or Mozilla Firefox or you android default phone browser i.e of the opera didn't work for you.
How to Create Blogger_Blogspot site
I open my browser and on my browser i type in www.blogger.com
On the next page because i haven't login before i was directed to blogger homepage where i will need to login. so i clicked on Create Your Blog from the homepage
And i was taking to a new page prompting me login my gmail before which is my password and username through which blogger can be accessed
I put in my details as shown above. hope you can see my email and password you can try it in your browser if you want to login my account my password is _**************_ hahaha it's fun anyway. so after i have successfully login my gmail i was taken to a new homepage where i saw the word New Blog
But note if this is your first time of visiting blogger.com with your email you might not be taken to this page at first. You may be asked to fill in some forms just follow what ever they ask you to do and Proceed to blogger then you will see this above page.
So i clicked on New blog from my dashboard and behold i was taken to another page which i saw as bellow.
In the first space is for my blog title and the second one for my blog name. i wrote in my blog title and in space for my blog name i put amkennedy they told me it's not available maybe someone else have chosen that so i have to take another name for my blog which is kennedyprosper and it was available so my blog becomes kennedyprosper.blogspot.com
Then i scroll down and clicked on the page have to load and take me to my blog dashboard where i can manage my blog like adding contents deleting , editing and so on.
When Choosing a blog name
The problem you may encounter when choosing a blog name from the above step is error of name unavailable You can't be choosing a name like naijalearn, info, chatgroup,makemoney, onlinebiz, when you know that such names are very common and might have been chosen by some folks out there.
In blogspot or blogger two people can't use the same name so when you see name unavailable it simply means the name you typed in has been taken by someone else,and in that case you will have to try other names which you think may be available.
Keep trying until you find available name. don't try to use common names use. if you think you really want to use you proposed name and it has been taken you will have to add some prefix or suffix to the name e g 247naijaleran, 123infograh, naijacoded235,419idoncome and so on
