How to Sign Up for Ameba


Ameba is a Japanese website that offers a free blogging platform to anyone with an email address and a desire to write for them. Many Japanese celebrities have blogs hosted on the website, which is primarily in the Japanese language. Ameba offers other services such as Ameba Now, which is similar to Twitter, and Ameba Pico, which is available in both Japanese and English versions. Ameba Pico, known as Pigg in Japan, allows users to create avatars and interact with other people through games and chats in a digital world they can help create. Signing up for the original Ameba can be difficult if you do not know much about the Japanese language, but it can also be a good tool if you are looking to expand your knowledge of the Japanese.

  • Click on the orange icon on the right of the Ameba home page. This will bring you to another page that will have three boxes at the top of the page that say respectively say "Step 1", "Step 2" and "Step 3". These will be the only English words on that page.

  • Enter your email address in the text box then scroll down and click the button to submit the information. You will be brought to a confirmation page with your email address written in the middle of the page.

  • Check your email at the address you provided to Ameba. Click the blue URL or copy and paste it into your browser to confirm your email address. This will bring you to Step 2.

  • Enter the name you want for your blog in the first text box. This will serve as both the name of the blog and part of the blog's URL.

  • Enter your password in the next two boxes below. Like with most websites, you enter it the first time to establish the password and the second time to confirm the password. The password has to be six to 12 characters.

  • Enter a nickname in the next box. In Japan, they typically enter a nickname instead of their real name, so you can feel free to do the same. The next option asks for you to identify your gender. Click the first option if you are female or the second if you are male. Finish the page by providing your birthday with the year first, then the month and finally the day. Your gender and birthday will not be shared publicly.

  • Click the icon at the bottom of the page to advance. The next page asks you to review your information. Make sure everything you entered is correct and you have taken note of your password. Finish by entering the security code in the box and click on the icon on the right to advance. Click on the icon on the left if you wish to go back and change your information. You will also have the option to read the terms of use, but they are in Japanese. If you wish to read them, use a free translation service found online.

  • Agree to the terms of service and confirm your information as correct. Doing so will bring you to Step 3, which notes that you have completed registration. Click the green icon on the middle of the page to begin editing your blog.
