Do you know you can own a blog for free? have you ever dreamt of creating a blog and make money from it? Do you think blogging is your passion and would want to put up your opinion out there? Well, google blogger got you covered. In this post, you will learn just about how to create a free blog using Google blog.
Note that Google Blogger is called just “Blogger”.
Blogger is a free platform that offers the “.blogspot.com” extension. Meaning that you can create a blog with any name of your choice but with a blogspot.com added.
Does Blogspot.com Extension on Google Blogger matter?
Yes, it does matter, as that tells people that you are using google free publishing platforms which also limit your control over what changes you can affect on the site. However, we recommend blogger for beginners who can’t wait to share text, images, videos, and links on their blog.
With the release of the blogger app on mobile devices, access to blogger become much more easy and flexible, as you can create, manage, and publish content right from your mobile devices.
Can I earn Money with Blogs Hosted On Google Blogger?
My first blog was hosted on google through blogger, but with lots of limitations, though I never earned a dime from it as it didn’t take it seriously as of then. Never had the patience to wait for six months before getting approved for Google AdSense. However, one can earn with blogger.com as one of the ways to monetize your content is through Google AdSense.
But you will need to write and publish value-packed content on your blog and make a little effort to drive traffic to your site. In six months, you can apply for AdSense and if approved you can be paid by google based on the number of clicks you get daily on the ads placed on your site by your visitors.
