Are you interesting to get started with your own blog? Do you need a help with setting up a blog? If your answers to these questions are YES! That’s absolutely great!
Let me walk you through the simple steps on how to start a blog. It does take less than 15 – 20 minutes to set up a blog.
1) Pick a good domain name.
Your domain name can be anything you want it to be in your own blog. You need to think about picking a good domain name before you purchase this. Consider about what you want to blog about. Will it be something niche clearly or have a broad scope to include lifestyle topics? Think, write, think and write something down in the stretch paper or notes until you try to find a right domain name for your new blog.
2) Get Started Now.
Let’s get started with setting up a web hosting – click: Hostgator.com .
3) Enter your own domain and choose one of the Hosting Packages.
When you finally pick a good domain name, you need to choose which one of the hosting packages you want for your blog. If you want a single domain + hosting services, the package is “Hatching Plan”. If you want unlimited domains (more than one domain name) + hosting services, the optional package is “Baby Plan”. If you want unlimited domains (more than one domain) + hosting services + free Private SSL and IP and Toll Phone number, that is called – “Business Plan”. I encourage you to do your research on which one of the hosting plans you choose.
When you decide to sign up one of the hosting plans, enter the domain name and choose a hosting plan in the order form.
And you need to fill out the blank boxes in the billing account. For the additional services, please uncheck all the selected boxes. You will not need these services unless you decide to keep the services.
4) Setup WordPress.
Are you feeling ok with everything done? If so, that’s great! Let’s go to the Hostgator.com dashboard.
Ok, now you need to search for the “QuickInstall” in the Hostgator Dashboard. When you find this, click this. And then you can go ahead to click on “WordPress” in the left-column. WordPress is the platform that you will use to do your daily blogging. It allows you to easily direct having a blog and setting up your website.
5) Congratulations! You can start a blog!
You should get the temporary password + username for your blog in your email. So your blog is now up and you can view it online. Once you are ready to start designing your blog and posting you will need to login through wordpress here: http://www.yourdomainname.com/wp-admin and use the login and password that you created.
Again, congratulations on your new blogging journey!
