Blogger is a wonderful option for new bloggers. In fact, it is what I used to get started with my first blog. Blogger is owned by Google so if you already use Google products (Drive, Docs, Calendar, YouTube), you already have an account. And if you choose not to use Google products, it isn’t a good option for you. If you don’t have an account, you will need to set up one up. Blogger is free.
