After you finish signing up, log in and Weebly will prompt you to choose from these two options:
a. Do you need a website?
b. Do you need an online store?
Choose the first option to get a simple website.
After you click on the first option, Weebly will take you to your theme page to choose your style. Click on the blog tab and choose a blog theme for a clean blog layout. Choose any one you wish to if you are planning other categories of the website.
When you finish choosing your theme, you need to give your website a name. Give a good blog name so that when you further plan to upgrade it in future, you can make it your brand. Here is a good article on how to choose a good blog name. Give it a name and hit search. If it is available, set it.
After you hit search, it will prompt you to choose a Top-level Domain or Weebly.com subdomain. The second option is free. The first one is premium. Here, I am using the free one for a demo. The name of a free Weebly blog is demowebsite7.weebly.com.
Choose the one on the subdomain section [free option] and you will be taken to the editor screen.
Now you can edit your titles, add pages, add texts and all using drag and drop options easily. Above all, You can also upgrade it to your own .com domain from the upgrade option on the right. You can get more functions like adding videos, SSL certificate, more disk space, and full control when you upgrade your Weebly blog to premium.
