How to Create a Google Account

If you want to use Google Blogger to create your blog, you need to create a Google account to access the Blogger software. You can easily create your Google account (and your Blogger blog):

Visit the Blogger home page.

If you already have an account, you can also sign in from this page.

On the Blogger home page, click the Create Your Blog Now button.

The Create a Google Account page opens.

On the Create a Google Account page, type your e-mail address in the Email Address text box, and then retype it in the Retype Email Address text box.

The e-mail address you use doesn’t have to be for a Google Gmail account. You can use any e-mail address to create a Google account to access Blogger. The e-mail address you enter is the one you use to log in to Blogger, and it’s the one to which Blogger sends your username and password if you forget them.

Enter a password in the Enter a Password text box, and then reenter it in the Retype Password text box.

You can change your password later, if you want. Google shows you, just beneath the Enter a Password box, howstrong your password is (how difficult it would be for someone to figure it out) after you enter it.

Enter your display name in the Display Name text box.

Your display name appears at the bottom of each of your blog posts, indicating that you’re the author of the post.

Type the letters displayed in the Word Verification box.

This security procedure ensures that new Google accounts are created by human beings, rather than by automated spam systems.

Select the check box in the Acceptance of Terms section to indicate that you accept Blogger’s terms of service.

You can click the Terms of Service link on your screen to read the complete document.

Click the Continue button.

The Name Your Blog page opens on the Blogger Web site.
