To sign in to your Google account, go to any Google page and click Sign In. Choose your account and click Sign In, or enter your email address and password and click Next.

Click Sign In

To sign in from your blog, click the Sign In link from the top-right corner of the page. You'll be redirected to a Google sign-in page. Choose your account and click Sign In, or enter your email and password and click Next.

Staying signed in poses a security risk, however, if you are on a shared computer, if you leave your device unattended or if it's stolen.
