How to set up a Malayalam Blog using Blogger, or Blogspot.

Blogger.com has a sexy feature which attracts most of Malayalam Bloggers. Its called Transliteration.  What Transliteration does is simple, you type in Manglish ( or Malayalam using English alphabets ) and Google will automatically display those words in Malayalam alphabets.

To start a Malayalam blog using blogger, go ahead and create an account at Blogger.com. You can login using your gmail ID if you have one. If you need help, click here and you get a video on how to do it. After creating the blog, we will go ahead and enable Malayalam Transliteration on it.

Login to Blogger, and click on “Settings” next to the newly created blog’s name.|
On the “Basic” tab, scroll down and look for “Enable transliteration?”.
Here, select “Enable” from the drop down menu, and select ” Malayalam” on the next drop down.
Click on “Save Settings”
