Let’s get started.
Before You Get Started, Map Out Your Journey for Success
Blogging is unlike anything else. The amount of opportunities that open up once you have a website live and traffic flowing to it is amazing. At the same time, if you are just winging it and building out your site and content as you go, you can soon find yourself running in circles while also wasting a lot of time in the process.
Before we get started, it’s extremely important that you first plan out your blog for success. Ask yourself why you are starting a blog, what type of content you can create, how you can provide value to an audience, and lastly, how your site can make money down the road.
The more you know about your future site and plans now, the better prepared you will be a few days, weeks, and months down the road.
Secure Your Domain Name and Start Your Blog
First thing first, you will need to register a domain name and set up your web hosting. This is a very simple process and can be done through any well-known hosting company. Most web hosts will also provide self-installed WordPress right when you sign up for an account.
If you are completely new to WordPress, don’t worry–it’s extremely simple to use. If you know how to send an email and write a letter in Word or Google Docs, you will be just fine. For a quick walkthrough on how to get started with WordPress, click here.
When picking your domain name, make sure it’s a .com, .net, or .org TLD. Most of the other weird extensions aren’t well known and just don’t look that professional either. It’s also a good idea to register your personal name as a domain if it’s still available.
