At Designer Blogs, we offer a wide selection of affordable $15 Blogger templates. In order to install our templates, you first have to set up a blog. This tutorial shows you how easy it is to create a Blogger blog.
Step 1: Go to https://www.blogger.com/. Click on CREATE YOUR BLOG.
Step 2: If you already have a Google or Gmail account, sign in with your email and password. If you do not have a Google account, click on More options > Create account. Follow the instructions to create an account.
Step 3: Type in a Title for your blog as well as an Address. By default, the address box will add blogspot.com to the end of the address you choose. If the blog address you type in is already in use, you will get a message that says, “Sorry this blog address is not available.”
You may have to get creative with your blog address until you find one that isn’t in use. Once you receive the message, “This blog address is available,” click on Create blog! You are also given the option to choose a Theme. You can scroll through the options and choose one, but if you are planning on installing one of our templates, it doesn’t matter which theme is selected.
Step 4: A box will pop up that asks if you want to find a Google domain for your blog. By default, your Blogger blog is hosted on a subdomain that looks something like “myawesomeblog.blogspot.com.”
Having the subdomain blogspot.com attached to your blog address isn’t a problem for many bloggers. Some bloggers choose to have their own custom domain. While setting up a custom domain on Google Domains that looks something like “myawesomeblog.com” may seem like the easiest option, we recommend saying “No thanks.”
In general, most designers, developers and pro bloggers recommend you register your custom domain with an outside registrar like Bluehost, GoDaddy or SiteGround. The advantage of using an outside domain registrar is that if you ever migrate your blog to another platform, it will be easier to build a staging site on your new platform and painlessly re-direct your domain with zero downtime.
Step 5: Your blog is set up and ready to go! You can click on “Theme” and follow the instructions sent with your template purchase to install your new design. You can also begin writing posts or creating pages for your menu bar.
