Who is a mentor?
A mentor is like a father unto a son.
He has seen what works, what fails, need to keep learning.
Brings up the son from childhood.
Is not afraid or ashamed of the stupid questions the son ask as a child.
That's what we will be dealing with here today.
Some bloggers call such questions blogger tips for dummies.
You're not a dummy.
You're a child.
It is said ''he who knows that he knows not is a child teach him and he who knows not that he knows not is a fool let him go.''
The question of a child sounds like that of a dummy.
We're going to start a blogger account today from scratch.
All questions, see it grow until you become a money making machine.
Blogger is owned by google.
It is similar to a website but that it's hosted by google and it's free.
If you have a gmail account, you can go ahead and create a blog.
If not you will need to create 1.
Google has implemented a new blogger interface.
A beta version.
If you're still with the old interface (alpha version) then try to take the new 1.
You have an option to revert to the old interface.
We will be working here today with the beta version.
We are going to be answering the most common questions like: -
- How to create a new blog post.

Don't be scared of the codes
They're just web codes developed by web developers that's why I like using the 1 originally developed by blogger web developers.
Here you have the option to insert second party web developers template.
It's a risk since some of them can be poorly developed causing you allot of broken links and even possible white page.
You have the possibility to edit this templates.
Don't fool around though.
It's like the heart of blogger.
Make sure you know what you're doing.
Since any mistakes can damage your whole blog.
To search for pieces of codes use this strg + f.
That's on a German keyboard.
On any other keyboard, that's the button just below the left second function.
