Creating your own Shelf Reliance Blog with Blogger

Blogging! I love it! And it has taken the world by storm!

You can start or find a blog on any and every topic! I love mommy blogs. I follow several homeschooling and couponing blogs.

Blogs are a GREAT way to share your knowledge and experience with others. And best of all, its FREE and easier than ever!!

First, do a bit of browsing, decide what blog host you would like to use. The most popular free host are wordpress.com and blogger.com. This blog is made with blogger. Wordpress.org is also very popular, but is not free. (When I first started blogging, I signed up with both blogger and wordpress and played around with both) You should get your blog basically 'set up' before sharing the URL with your customers. For this tutorial, we will be using Blogger. *In this tutorial I will be showing you how to use Blogger*

Your First step is to sign up for a free account. You will need to pick a URL. For example tawnysthrivinghomeblog.blogspot.com. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHANGE THIS URL LATER. Pick something easy to remember and relevant to your blogs title and topic.

 Once you have your url and your blog named, you can customize the template, layout and design of your blog. Choose a template. You can change the font, colors, background and more. Next, change the design and layout. Play around with different features and see what you like. Look around at other blogs you enjoy for inspiration.

Now You are ready to start blogging!
Click create post and start wringing.
Tell your readers all about you and why you started with Shelf Reliance. Share your stories and your experiences. Share recipes. Tell your readers about how you use Thrive in your own home. Make your blog fun and educational. 

Enjoy Blogging! Feel welcome to send us a link to your blog! We would love to see it!

That is it! Now you are a blogger!
