How to Create an "About Me" Page in Blogger

So you recently created your first blog and you've spent some time designing it, but now you want to start adding some features like an "About Me" page, or a "FAQ" (Frequently Asked Questions) page. Maybe if you write about food on your blog, you'll want a "Recipes" page.
Creating a page in Blogger can be really simple once you know all the steps involved. Here they are...
The first step is to go to "Pages" in blogger. Once there, click the "New Page" button and select "Blank page".
A new window will open, and this is where you can design your new page. Start by adding a title (ex. About Me) and then put some text into the box, perhaps even a photo of yourself. Then click "Publish".
But don't stop there! When you first create your blog, your pages are automatically set as "Don't show". In order for your page to appear, you need to change that setting to either "Top tabs" or "Side links".
Then click "Save arrangement".
Now your blog should have a beautiful new bar at the top with a "Home" button and another button of your choosing. To go back and make changes to a page, simply go back to "Pages"and click "Edit" under the page you want to select.

  5. Thank you so much! Having never done this before, I've absolutely no knowledge on how to set anything up. I really thought this would be more user friendly! Without posts like this, I would have nothing but a blank page! Is there a way to customize the font? I customized the font on my home page with all that HTML jazz but is there a way to do it on each individual page like this?

    1. Hey Lindsey, I'm glad I could help!
      I apologize for not responding to your question sooner. Yes, you can change the font of the text for each individual page you create. For example, you can make the text on your 'About Me' page arial, your 'FAQ' page Times New Roman, your 'Contact Me' page helvetica, etc. : ) This can be done when you write the text of the specific page. To do this you'll find a button that looks like a fancy 'F' on the toolbar along with other tools such as font size and the italics, bold, and underline options. I don't believe you can change the font of the titles of the pages though.
      I hope this helps.

  15. I recently bought my own domain in godaddy, it is just a single domain as I am still testing the effect of it, now I want my blog to have this other pages, like about me and also contact us, will I buy another domain for that or what ? Thanks for your post and I hope you can give me a little advice about my question, thank you in advance

    1. Hi there!
      I've never worked with GoDaddy before but I asked a few friends who have and they said that you wouldn't have to buy more domains. Web hosting using GoDaddy doesn't change the blogging and blog design process, just allows you to purchase a domain and buy additional disk space. You'd only have to pay more for your additional pages if the content took up more disk space than you had paid for.
      I hope this helps, and I'm sorry for not replying sooner.
