It is pretty easy to set up a blog. In fact, you can set up a free blog in less than 15 minutes. In this quest, many bloggers –especially
newbies –prefer to use blogger/blogspot in place of several other blogging
platforms such as tumblr and wordpress.
As precise as it is, blogger/blogspot is an easy-to-use
blogging platform and the most recommendable option for many bloggers. If
you’re pretty new to blogging and can barely handle technical blogging set-ups,
then blogger/blogspot is the suitable platform for you.

To create a free blog on blogger, there are easy steps you
have to follow and right here, you will be shown these steps one after the
other. However, you’re expected to have created or invented a unique domain
name for your blog. What is meant by domain name? 
Domain name is the actual name with which your blog can be
identified. Therefore, you can create any blog with an already-registered
domain name. Since the blog you’re creating is free, you will also be hosted on
a free domain but in order to optimize your experience as a blogger, you’re
advised to change from a free domain to a custom domain.
Finally, you can follow the easy steps below to set-up a
free and quick blog on blogspot/blogger:
