Creating a Blog
1.www.blogspot.com2. Click on “Create a blog”3. Fill in the information requested on that page.
: What you choose for “display name” is how it will posts undercomments. On the MMM blog, it says “posted by April Mayo and AmyDaniels”. So, just be certain of what you want it to say.
: The reason you have to type in the “word verification” block isto ensure that you are actually a human, not a computer.4. On the next page, you are requested to give your cell. I was NOTasked this when I created a blog at home but at school, I was. You canput in a land line phone number but the phone will ring about 4 timesand you will get a loud tone in your ear and you will not get the codeyou need. If you do not put in a cell number, they will send you andemail to do the verification. Click on the link in THAT email to do theverification. If you put your cell # in, you will receive a text with anumber. Type in that number and then click “verify”.
 This is a free service so they have to determine that you areactually a real person. SO FAR, I have not gotten any crazy calls ortexts.5. Give your blog a title. You can always revise this later if you wish. If you are using this for classroom use, for parents and students, youmay want to name it “Mrs. Walker’s Class Blog”, etc…
This is what will be displayed at the very top of the page. (Seewww.mayomedia.blogspot.comfor an example)6. Give your blog a URL. You may want to call it the same thing asyou NAMED your blog.

After deciding on a name, click the “check availability” button tomake sure that name you have chosen is available. Keep tryingdifferent combinations until one works. When you are told that nameis available click “continue”.8. Choose a template. You can change this later also if you wish. Click“continue”.
That’s it, you are done!
