Starting a Movie Website (Blogger Edition): Domain Name, Online Steps

I spoke about that in these posts: Starting a Movie Website: Choosing and Registering a Domain Name and Starting a Movie Website: Logo and Branding.

Once you’ve chosen and typed in what you want for your site’s URL (Note: the drawback to using a free blogging service like Blogger is that they brand part of the URL with their name, in this case .blogspot and the Favicon for your website is an orange B), the automatic system will check to see if that URL is available. If it is, enter in the Captcha and click Continue. If it isn’t you will have to pic another URL.


Once that is done you’ve succeeded. You’ve created your first movie website. Take a gander: Movie Exempli Gratia

You are also given the option of uploading a theme from your hard drive in your Blogger dashboard. Once you have chosen or uploaded a theme, it is time to start posting.

In Conclusion

As you can see, it is very easy to start a movie website with Blogger. It takes about 8 minutes if you already have a Google Account and have pre-brainstormed possible domain names to use on Blogger.
