Blog Backgrounds

Considering starting your own blog? Not sure where to start? First decide what you want to blog about. I decided to blog about my current interests which include food, family and crafting.

Next decide if you want to host your own blog or if you want to use a free service. I chose a free service through Google called Blogger. I found it very easy and simple to set up and use. There are other hosts such as Wordpress so you will want to investigate a little to find out what best meets your needs.

Now that you have selected a hosting service let the fun begin! Choosing a unique blogger name, background and layout allows you to show your own style. Blogger offers free templates for your background (how the blog looks). They are OK but if you search the web a little you can find some free, more creative, backgrounds that might suit your style better. Here are two that I found:,

After you have finished tweaking your blog layout and look you are ready to start posting. Post whatever you want however often you want to post! It is a great way to communicate with friends and family or even customers! Good luck and please send me links to your blog so I can check out what you have created.
