Here I will tell you how to Start a Blogspot blog for free with proper Blogspot setting, besides, I will give you some tricks which will help you make money from Blogspot very fast.
When creating a Blogspot blog, the biggest thing is that often beginners make mistakes, as a result, they fail somewhere. Like weak Blogspot Blog structure or faults in Blogspot setting. It is very important to read this guide in order to improve all these small mistakes
Well, creating a free blog on Blogspot is an easy task but making a Professional Blogspot blog is a bit difficult. But you do not need to panic because I have also given down a PDF file where I have mentioned how to create a blog on Blogspot Blogging Platform (with Picture).
Advantages Of Blogspot Blog:
Free Of Cost– Blogspot is totally free. If you don’t have the money yet and want to start your own blog then there is no option better than Blogspot.
Easy To Use– Blogspot is super easy to use and this thing makes Blogspot unique and beginner friendly.
Trustable– As I said, Blogspot or Blogger.com is owned by Google, so there is no reason to worry about the privacy of your Blog.
Easy To Monetize– Another important thing about the Blogspot is that you can start Adsense from Blogspot Dashboard.
Before Starting, I would like to tell you few words about Blogspot, so that your concept is cleared.
Blogspot was developed by Pyra Labs and in 2003 Blogspot was bought by Google Inc. Blogspot is a blogging platform as well as a hosting platform. This means that if you create a free blog on Blogspot, you do not have to worry about the speed or storage of your Blog.
I think Blogspot is very helpful for beginners. Because You do not have to invest money in it. So, there is no possibility of any financial loss. The biggest thing is that you get a lot of knowledge about Blogging from Blogspot for free.
However, some people said that Blogspot is not good for blogging but I do not fully agree with this. If someone does not have money, what will he do?
I think, 90% of bloggers Start Blogging from Blogspot and then they export their blogs from Blogspot blogging platform to other blogging platforms (Like- WordPress, Joomla, etc.).
Therefore, do not worry about what people say about Blogspot.

Perhaps you know that 90% of bloggers make money from Blogspot through Google Adsense. Adsense is an advertising company, placing ads on websites and blogs. It is totally free.
You have to show Google ads to your visitors so that you can make money from Blogspot blog. This will happen only when you submit an application to Adsense. To submit the Application, you must sign up at Google Adsense.
Ok, As you can see in the below image, I am not qualified according to Google Adsense Guidelines because I have recently created this blog. It may happen to you as well but there is no reason to worry. It’s not a big deal, it happens on all new blogs.
In this step, you need to enter your all original details (Like- Name, Address, Pin Code). You can find this option under Payments option also. Now, Click on “Submit”
After submitting, you will be redirected to another page (same as below image). In this page, you need to copy the script that is given by Adsense (look at below screenshot).
After copying the Script, go to your Blogspot blog dashboard and navigate to Theme>>Edit HTML. Now you have to paste the script between <head> and </head> tag. It’s a little technical, so you should look at the image below.
That’s it. Now go to your Adsense account and check on “I’ve pasted the code into my site”. Next click on the “Done” button. It will report in your Email Inbox within 3 days whether your blog is eligible or not. That’s it.
