Q: Is it possible to create a blog for someone else?
I am trying to create a blog for a friend and it always contacts to my blog(whichI don’t use much).
I am using blog spot

A: Yes, you can definitely do that.

It will have to be set up using your Google account, but then you can add your friend as an Admin so they can take over. To add an admin follow these steps:

  1. in go to settings, basic, permissions
  2. Under Blog authors, click add author and enter your friend’s email address. Make sure this email address belongs to their google account.
  3. They will receive an email and they’ll have to accept
  4. Once they accept, you can go back to settings, basi, permissions, authors and designate them as an Admin
