If you already have a blog, you can of course use that for this course. You may, however, find it helpful to create a new blog so that you can use it in relation to this course. Many people who use blogs have more than one blog. To create a blog you have to create an account with someone who provides blogs. The instructions here are for creating a WordPress blog; you can use a different blog provider and the instructions will be very similar.
Did you follow the instructions OK? Consider what instructions you would give to your learners if you were asking them to set up a blog for the first time.
