Blogging is an excellent way to not only monetize your spare time but also to increase your online profile, so if you’re one of those people, you should definitely give it a try. So, if you want to start a blog without spending any money, this is the resource for you.
Creating a free blog on Blogger is a quick and easy process. You can be up and running in just a few minutes.
To get started, all you need is:
– A Smartphone
– Good internet connection
– A Google account
– Your internet browser
How Can I Create A Blog With My Smartphone?
The first step is to visit http://blogger.com, then a page will be displayed that looks like this
Click on “CREATE YOUR BLOG”
After clicking on that link, you will be directed to another page where you can log in to your google account, after a successful login, you will then be redirected to a page where you can choose a Title for your blog, and tap on next.
On the next page, you can choose a URL for your blog. Blogger has an issue with URL availability, so your desired URL might be chosen already, but the good thing is that you can always add a custom domain later.
You will be asked to confirm your display name, you can use any name, maybe your real name or nickname depending on how you want it to appear on the blog. Then tap on finish.
Congratulations!! You have successfully created a blog with your smartphone, it seems easy, right?
To view your blog, just click on “view blog” on your dashboard just beneath your blog name or paste your blog address on your browser.
How To Make A New Post On Your Blog
If you want to make a post on your blog, click on the “plus” icon, and you should get a page like this:
Posting an article or any other kind of post on blogger does not require a basic knowledge of programming language or HTML, rather it requires a basic Microsoft Word idea because it works almost exactly like Microsoft word. But if you have any knowledge about HTML, you can also switch to the ‘HTML’ option via the Compose/HTML button.
So, you can ‘publish’ your post or ‘save’ it as a draft, you can also ‘preview’ it before posting.
Congratulations!! You are now a blogger
Now on your dashboard, you will see some links in the sidebar, they might seem confusing but don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Everything will be well explained to you
Now, your blog title is the first thing that will be displayed, then the “view blog” link.

How To Make Money With Your Blog Using Your Smartphone
Making money with your Blog is quite easy, all you need to do is to register for an AdSense account. You can register through your dashboard by locating “Earnings” and clicking on it, then you can register through that page.
However, I recommend that you read all their terms and conditions before going ahead to register for Google AdSense so that you can be sure that you’ve met all their criteria.
And note that you will have to publish a few articles on your blog before you register on Google AdSense and start making your cool cash.
