How to start a blog (Updated Aug. 2012)

1.  Go to and sign in with your Google account.  The new blogger requires a Google Account to access your blog.  If you do not have a google account you will need to click the ‘Sign Up’ button in the upper right hand corner.

2.  Fill out the form and click next step.
3.  A screen will pop up giving you an option to add your picture.  If you want to add a picture go ahead and then click Next Step.

4.  A welcome screen will pop up, just click Back to Blogger.

5. Next click on Continue to Blogger.
6. Click on New Blog.

7.  Type in what you want the title of your blog to be.  Then type in what you want the web address to be.  Blogger will let you know if the domain name is already taken.  Next, you will want to click on the Picture Window template.  Finally… on Create Blog!

Congratulations! You set up your blog in just a few steps! To find out how to post pictures on your blog, click here!


  1. Thank you so much for all the wonderful tutorials!! As a brand new blogger (Literally I just set my very first blog up this week) your blog has really helped me! I linked you in my post today (my second blog post) because you helped me tremendously! Thanks again!!

  2. Hi there! I have a blog on blogger and want to switch over to The cutest blog on the block (I’m new to blogging). I don’t want to have to make a new blog, I want to be able to transfer my stuff onto cutest blog on the block. How do I do this? Hope I’m not asking a dumb question. Thanks!

    • Moneth, you don’t have to transfer your blog to use our free backgrounds and banners! Just follow the instructions below the background to apply it to your blog:)! —Becky TCBOTB
