Google Blogging Tip # 98: How to Create a Google Only Blog Profile

Q) Can you tell me how to create a Google 'Profile' without creating a Google Blog?

A) To create a Google 'Profile' simply follow the steps below.
The Google 'Profile' can be used for several reasons:
1) To reserve a name. The Blog can be added later.
2) So you can Follow someone who all ready has a Google Blog using Google Friends Connect.
Email Inquiries: 19

To create a Google only 'PROFILE' please follow these steps:

1/ - If you do not all ready have an email account create one. You will need an email address. If you don't have an email address or want a separate email just for your 'Google Profile' then Gmail or Yahoo are probably the best options but there are others such as myway; msn; live; and hotmail.

2/ - Write down the name you want to use for your Profile, example: blogsfollowme. I would recommend using this for the Blog Title as well.

3/ - Go to the following Google Link-
Create A Blog
See Picture Below:

4/ - The following window appears, see picture below:
Fill in all the required information.
When finished click on 'Continue.'

5/ - You will get another page. This is the page that you will create a 'Profile Only.'
Fill in the two required items, then click on 'skip this and create a blog later.'
See Picture Below:

6/ - This will take you to the final page.
If you want you can click on Edit Profile, Add a Profile Picture or just sign out.
Then open your email account. Google will have a confirmation email, click on it, sign back into your Profile, then sign out.
You are done.

How to use your PROFILE:
