Google Blog is interesting and you can have so much fun with them. There is a reason it is called Google blog but most people just decide to call it blogger. The reason it is called Google blog is that it is owned by Google and as such you need a Google account to get started with it.
Now Blogger is a blog-publishing service that allows a Google account owner to create multiple blogs if you are looking for a way to get something on the internet, then this is one of the platforms or services you should be looking at.
Using this service is free but you should know, using this service will create a subdomain of .blogspot.com. What I mean by this is that something like a new website will be created for you. It is usually recognized as a blog.
This website will have the URL or web address of [your name].blogspot.com. Since you own this blog, you can publish anything on it and as time goes on you can earn from it. The way you can earn from it is b displaying adverts on it. This blog can be customized to your taste and make it look as you like.
