1. Buy a custom domain name and put your sign for it.
Instead of having your URL is you can make your URL is www.yourwebsite.com professional. You can buy a custom name, either domain registration site or through a blogger (for $ 10 a year). In both cases, he created a name, go to Settings -> Publishing —> Add to a custom domain. You can choose to sign up for Blogger, or you can use to score another site (if you do that, follow the “transition to advanced settings” instructions).
2. Play with breakthrough design options to customize the appearance of your web site.
Blogger has a variety of affordable templates for your site. It is not elegant like templates for Word, (paid), especially raw, but are fully customizable. Here are three things is easy to do:
Add custom header. On “design”, click Header box and add your own custom image header.
Add custom background. Go to the “template”, click “Customize” and pick up a basic template to start. Click on “background” to add a custom background.
Add custom details. Go to the “template”, click “Customize”, and start playing with all the details of every element of your blog. Here is an example of change different colors of links:
3. Page add tabs (about, FAQ, Contact).
Blogger allows up to 20 independent static pages that appear down the head of the tabs. Go to the “Pages” section to add and edit pages.
NEW: to make the pages are displayed as tabs under her head, go to the “planning” and drag the box at the bottom of the pages of the head.
Good pages you have are: Information, wallet (if you are an artist), books (if released), Contact, and questions and answers.
4. Add the contact form.
Once you configure the connection to your page, you can create a model for those who through Google Docs. See my post on how to make contact page blogger for instructions.
5. Add symbols and social media.
Blogger includes sharing buttons for each social media position, but has a good tool to allow people who follow the social sites. If you look at the top right of this blog, and you will see social media that lead to my buttons for Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Penterist accounts, which allow people to subscribe to this blog through an RSS reader or e-mail.
6. Add a favicon.
Favicon is a small icon next to the Web browser address bar. Mine looks like this:

7. Use the image tool to link to other sites.
If you have an Amazon sales system or Etsy page or a group dedicated website, you can use an image as a tool to provide a link in the sidebar. This blog is using a photo tool to reach my shop Etsy.
8. adds e-commerce functions.
If you want to sell something directly from your blog, rather than through a separate service, you can add PayPal to your blog button, both in the sidebar or on a page or another that describes your goods. Go to the “business services” section of your PayPal account for instructions.
PS If you’re really ambitious, customize the entire layout of the site.
