Click On Create “Your Blog”
2. Sign in using your Google Id
You can sign in using the email id you use on Gmail. The blog will be linked with the same user so make sure you sign in with the user id which you want your blog to get linked with.
I would recommend using your primary Google account as the account is active and must be linked to your mobile number, In case you forgot your password, it will be super easy to get your blog back.
3. Say “no thanks” to Google Domain Registration (For Now)
Right now, you do not need a domain. You are just starting out so just try the platform once you become familiar with it then decide if you would like to go with the same platform or would like to migrate.
In most of the cases, bloggers migrate to a self-hosted blog which provides them extensive functionality.
