Blog Buddy...How To Start A Blog (Video)

Starting this blog was the best thing I've ever done in my hobby life. I've met so many wonderful people and learned more than I could have ever imagine. Generous people all over the world willing to share their thoughts and ideas...amazing!

You can start a blog for a number of reasons...
  • share your thoughts and ideas
  • share your hobbies
  • keep family members who live far away up to date with your life
  • keep it as a journal
  • use it as a scrap book of your life
  • so much more...

I've had some email and facebook requests asking how to start a blog. If you've read any of my post, you know I can get kind of picture heavy. Explaining how to start a blog would end in the same way...a billion pictures. So I found this video from the Blogger Help section.

This video is a great way to learn how to join the world of blogging...step by step. You can replay it over and over again. If you have a smart phone, ipad or tablet you can play the video next to your computer while your creating your blog. That way the verbal instructions are right there as you go through the steps.

I hope this helps...if you do start a blog, let me know how it went and what your new blog is. I'd love to see it.

I do have one piece of advice...when you are setting up your account, there is a section under "Privacy" named..."show my email address". Please put a check in that box. It allows your email address to be attached to your blog comments. That way other bloggers can communicate back and forth with you. That's the whole idea behind blogging...making friends and communication.!

Have fun creating,


  1. I agree that a blog is beneficial in many, many ways. I am glad that I took the leap and started one in 2007.

  2. Thank you for all your wonderful help. I have started having problems of "freezing up" trying to leave comments. I came across this - go to Design > Settings > Comments > "Comment Form Placement" and select full page or pop-up window and then save. If you select "embedded below post" it can cause problems by "freezing" out these people leaving comments. One can only hope, Blogger will get this fixed soon.

  3. Thanks for the video - I keep thinking about starting a blog but don't know where to start or what I would talk about. Hopefully someday this year I will take the step, but I love following you :)

  4. I've followed you for a while now and love all your craftiness!
    Thought it was time I did something for me, so I jumped in and started blogging and I have to addmit I'm having a ball. Nobody reads it really but its for exactly as you said, a scrap book of my journey through motherhood and my life, nothing more, nothing less.
    Thanks for making everything seem easy :)

  5. Thanks for the post. I'm new to blogging so every little help is appreceiated. I love your blog, by the way.

  6. Thank you sharing this video.

  7. Karen, I have been meaning to come over and let you know just how much I appreciate your Blogging Tips section!!!

    I had been wanting to start a blog for such a long time and just didn't know how to do it. I had been following along and seeing the tips you posted every now and again, so when I decided on Christmas morning to JUST START THE DARN THING, I went to your blog and found everything I needed to know. I could never have done it without your help, and was just amazed at how easy it was.

    Thank you SO much - I have encouraged others to follow you and get started too. I'm also following you on Pinterest =^..^=

  8. What happened to "Gift on the 25th"? I was so looking forward to it since I just found it at the end of last year. : (


  9. Hi Karen. This is my first comment as a "non-lurker"! I finally created a blog! Thanks for all your encouragement and tips! Val

  10. Karen... since you posted this can I ask a question??? How about how do you remove people you have subscribed to under blogger??? I can't find a remove there on blogger profile page. Thanks! Kathi

  11. I've just found your site & am truly enjoying the things you share. I've wanted to start a blog but thought you had to have one basic area of interest to focus on. You have shown me how wrong I was! You have covered
    All the many interests a woman could have and done it brilliantly! Thank you for your encouragement! I now can see a blog in my future!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
