Have you ever wanted to start a website or blog of your own? If you have, you aren’t alone. Thousands of new websites and blogs are started every single day and there are more than a billion active sites online right now. Right now is the best time to start a blog of your own, and I want to help you get started.
Let Me Tell You a Story about Blogging!
Hi, My name is Zac Johnson and I want to show you how to start a blog of your own. Best of all, I’m going to walk you through the process for free and let you look over my shoulder as I build this very website you are looking at today.
Before starting a blog, you need to first know what you are creating one in the first place. Here are some of the most common reasons.
- To build your own little space on the internet
- Share information about a topic or passion
- Try to make money online
- Promote an existing brand or business
No matter what reason you decide to create a blog for, know that it could ultimately be one of the best decisions you will ever make. However, before jumping right in and going live with your site, you will need a few things to get started. This includes a domain name and web hosting. Without these two components, there simply isn’t a way to create a website for other people to see. You will also need a free software called WordPress, which will allow you to create content for your site. Don’t worry, it’s extremely easy to use and to set it all up, you just need to click a few buttons.
Here’s a recap on what each of the following components will do for your blog.
- Domain Name – The address people will type in to access your site.
- Web Hosting – Where and how your content will be shared online.
- WordPress – The free software for creating content on your site.
With all of this now in place, it’s important for you to think about what you are going to blog about, the domain name you are going to choose and also what goals you have for your site in the coming weeks. It’s important to make sure you have all of this in place before starting your site, as it’s not something you can easily change later on.
