Name Your blog
First thing which you need to do is by adding a name and selecting your domain name. I suggest go through my post on how to select a domain name. Avoid using your name as domain name and instead use some generic domain name which you can brand later on with your custom domain. You can select the blog template here ( You can change it anytime later) and click on create blog.
Most important you should change your blog template as default one is generic and boring in my opinion. Here I have compiled a list of free BlogSpot templates that you can download and install on your blog. If not, you can always go to settings> Template and make changes like add your logo to the header of BlogSpot blog, add elements you want to add and remove anything you like.
