After you click the edit, click yes and in the text area, a bar writes the description not more than 150 characters. Then don't forget to click the button "Save Changes"

Step 6: Inside the Blogger Dashboard: Create Create layout for widgets on your blog.

Blog widgets are an easy-to-use design, only to drag and drop without having knowledge of HTML and CSS programming code. Mostly position at the right-side panel of your blog site. For example, I use a picture window as my theme, this theme design has only a right sidebar.


Click Layout in the left panel and click "Add a Gadget" at the right panel.


In another window, select a gadget like an example profile, above, I put arrows is very important. You need to set up this in your blog.


Write the title if needed as necessary like the image above here. Then don't forget to save your gadgets to take effect on your blog. You can see it by clicking the "View Blog" above the left side of your screen.

Repeat this procedure to complete your widgets, like the archive, label, and blog search.

Click Pages at the left panel than at the right portion top click "new page".


Write a page title on the bar provided and click publish button on the right side. 

Now displaying the pages as page menu at the top of your home page follows the image below here and the instruction.

Then select a file in the next windows and click the open button located below that window.

Step 10: Inside the Blogger Dashboard: Setup a custom domain.


To set up a custom domain of your blogger blog is a good decision you ever plan. Owning a custom domain, rather than a subdomain, like,,, is not easy to memorize by the user, rather than Another you do not directly hold your blog site. You have no full authority. And some of the users, avoiding the subdomain site.

The best domain and hosting where you can purchase, I recommend Hostgator. This company is very professional. And they can help and address your problem arising during and after the setup of your new custom domain.

Step 11: Start Growing your Blog: By linking your blog to different Social Media like Facebook and Twitter.

After you complete the setup of your blogger blog, you need to start building links in order to grow your site. Quality traffic is the importance of your site, quality traffic means is an income. In order to achieve this goal, you need to link your blogger blog to Facebook and Twitter. In my case, I use IFTTT to link my every post on Facebook.

Another is planning a better marketing campaign, you can use either email marketing and social media. But this requires quality content of your site. Do your best to write a good, informative, and quality post.


To become a professional blogger and financially free because of enough income from your blogger blog is not easy. You need enough time to maintain your blog, some bloggers paid writers to write a quality article. And hire an SEO company to maintain its site technical errors-free.
