I am in the process of making a blog dedicated to my diy projects http://www.yourdiyguy.blogspot.com . I have done many of the projects on instructables and have my own tweaks and insights that i will be putting on the site. This is how I did it and its easy as 1 2 3!
Step 1: Get Gmail
Setup a google account. It is easy and it is always nice to have an extra email account. If you already have one you can skip on to the next step. If you don't all you need to do is go to google.com and click on the gmail link. It will then guide you through the process of getting and account.
