Start Your Own WordPress Blog Like A Pro in 5 Steps

The FIRST thing you need to decide on is what your blog will be about. What are you passionate about? What type of things do you enjoy? Or perhaps, think about something that you are very knowledgeable in.

This will help you sustain a successful blog that you will never get tired of in the long run.

Step 1: Set Up Hosting

Next, you will need to select a hosting company. I recommend Bluehost because of the number of benefits they offer such as:

  • Stress-free and reliable hosting service
  • Low-Cost Web Hosting
  • FREE Domain
  • 24/7 Technical Support

Click here to go to Bluehost then follow the video tutorial below.

 

Step #2: Time To Install WordPress

BlueHost has even made it much easier to install WordPress for your blog that can be done in two minutes. Go to your Cpanel and click on “Install WordPress”.

Click on “submit” and continue through the setup. If necessary, you can edit your email, username, and password for the new WordPress installation.  Make sure to write down the username and password before moving on.

Step #3: Time To Log In and Start Customizing Your WordPress Blog

Yayy! Now you're ready to log in and start personalizing your blog. Go to http://www.yourdomainname.com/wp-admin and enter your username and password.

Step #4: Choose Your Blog Design (Theme)

I'm sure you have come across some impressive blogs which make you feel welcome and willing to read their content. If you want such a blog, you will need to customize it by selecting a WordPress theme.

If you're on a low budget, I recommend using one of the free WordPress themes first just to see how you'll like the idea of blogging.

BONUS: If you'd like more customization, here are several themes I will provide for you to download at NO COST.

  • Download Genesis Framework (This is something you’ll most likely need some time before a child theme is uploaded.)
  • Download 21 Beautiful Genesis Child Themes: These premium designs are customizable, mobile-ready, and SEO friendly. Themes featured in the collection include Agency Pro, Beautiful Pro, Metro Pro, Magazine Pro, Lifestyle Pro, and much more!
