Ok Charlene... here you go.
First step... go to http://www.google.com/
Up in the top right hand corner there is a link called Sign In. Click on it.
It will take you to a new screen and on the right hand side is the sign in / create new account form. Click on the words Create an account now
You will be brought to a new screen. It is a form where you need to fill in your Screen ID, create a password, etc. Without creating another brand new google ID (which I don't need) I did not fill out the form. The good news is, you can have a Google ID without having to have a blog or another email box, unless you want those things.
I know this tutorial was short and sweet but I hope it answered your questions.
