Often times I recommend using google accounts for your document and storage needs; however people are not exactly fans of having numerous email accounts. There is a way to create a google account without creating or having a gmail account.
- Go to accounts.google.com
- Select “create acount”
- Fill out the information on the registration screen and click “I prefer to use my current email address” under the “choose your username” field
- Accept the terms on the next step page.
- Go into your original email and click the verification link.
- All done!
