By Biz Stone
Okay, it’s officially the last minute and you forgot to get your sister’s roommate a gift. You’re going to their holiday party tonight and you can’t show up empty handed. What do you do? Fear not gentle bloggers, you’ll have a great gift. The gift of blog.
What friend, family member, or colleague wouldn’t want a beautiful new Blogger blog. Don’t they know that Blogger is “The fast, easy, and free way to publish and share your information online?” Well it is. And it’s damn sexy too. The following are instructions for how to set up a brand new, free, Blogger blog for someone as a gift and how to make it seem like you actually gave it some real thought. The giving-it-some-thought part is key to any successful last-minute gifting strategy.
Step 1 — Create A New Blog
First, go to Blogger.com and click the Start Now button. If you’re already a Blogger.com member, just sign in and click the “create a new blog” link. The idea here is to set up a new blog in your own name first. Go through the four steps of setting up a new blog. Keep in mind that the title, description and other settings will eventually be changed by the giftee.
