Once you find a topic to blog about, next find an appropriate platform to play your concert.
You can select blogger, wordpress, myspace etc depending upon your needs.
Blogger is considered to be very user friendly where are wordpress have so much options. I prefer Blogger for a starter in blogging.
With a Google account( it can be a Gmail account, a Orkut account or any other google services account) you can open your dashboard where you apply all changes in the blog.
Find an excellent name for your topic. Always make a KISS approach on a name ie Keep it Short & Sweet. If you don’t get a short name, then try some names that related to your topic. The name itself will help you to market your blog.
While I was doing a market research, I found some names like this
Freeesms……….com, suxualfoods,which make confusion in the mind of visitors when they try to remember the name of the blog later.
Blogger is very user friendly. At first you can accept the common templates for your blog and later, you can upload any blogger templates available in various websites.
