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. Blogs can now be created for free by many providers and users use them to reduce their stress. Nowadays, the biggest reason why people start blog pages is so that they can make money. Finding the right provider is the first step in starting a blog. Templates are offered for free on most available blog providers. This makes it very easy for even beginners to create their own blog pages. After signing up with the provider, users simply choose the color scheme that they want based on the blog they are creating.
The next step in starting a blog after choosing the theme and color is making the page more personal by adding pictures, interests, name and any other features they feel will make it personalized. 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. Bloggers can view other blog pages done by professionals and see how they can make their pages interesting as well. The next step is making a decision as to whether the status of the blog will be public or private. 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. Other blog pages can also be created as public but other sections are password protected to be accessed only by members.
Post a few entries on the new blog page to see how the layout is and how the blog appears with content in it. Changes to the template can be made including font size, color and any other features that bloggers want. Bloggers can also change the background color and change the way features are arranged on their blog page. To do this, simply drag and drop the features to the new position that one wants them to be placed. At this point, the blog page should be good enough for the blogger and they can then start posting blog posts.
