How do I create my blog?
When you go to your blog section, you will be asked to select a URL for your blog while creating your blog. Since there are already a large number of blogs, you'll need to get creative and possibly try a few different ones before you find one that's available.
What is my blog's address/URL? A URL is the location of a file on the web. Some examples of URLs include http://blogs.siliconindia.com/myblog. The URL you select will be used by visitors, or yourself, to access your blog. One thing to note when selecting your blog's URL is that hyphens (also know as dashes, - ) are the only non-alphanumeric characters allowed. Spaces aren't permitted, nor are underscores (_) or any other special characters.
Can I change my blog address/URL? Yes, SiliconIndia platform gives you an option to change your URL/address as and when you want. The same will get changed in the system. But we recommend not to change it frequently as it will lose chances of pulling in major search engines.
