How to Create a Blogger Account and Create Photo Blogs

Blog has become the term used to refer to a Web Log.
Originally web logs were just narrative (text) stories or a person’s journal.

But with the advent of high speed internet connections the popularity of embellishing Blogs with photographs has become popular.

Blogger is Google’s free tool for creating blogs.

You can use blogs for everything from updating your friends and family about your life, giving

your own advice column, discussing your political views, or relating your experience in a topic of interest.

Although there are fancier blog tools out there, the mixture of cost (free) and flexibility makes Blogger one of the best deals around.
