How To Start A Blog From Scratch

How to start a blog?

how to start a blogThis seems to be a common question, asked by those who seem to have no clue how they can get their very own blog started.

The fact is that it not really difficult to learn how to start a blog as long as an individual receives proper guidance.

Hence those who want to start a blog easily and quickly can consider following these five simple steps mentioned below.

1. Choose a topic of your blog.

The topic that the blog creator will be focusing on when writing posts is the first thing that needs to be decided before a blog is started.

To be able to properly determine the topic, it can prove to be helpful if adequate keyword research is done. Anyone who is starting a blog for their online business should have no trouble thinking about the topic since the blog would be related to their business.

Nonetheless, the niche of the blog can still be narrowed down to make things easier.

2. Register your blog domain name.

Once the topic of the blog has been decided, a domain name needs to be chosen for it. The best domain name will be the one that contains the keywords of the topic in it.

It is important that the domain name of the blog has no more than three words so that it can be easily remembered by those who will be visiting it.

I use NameCheap for domain registrar and managing all my domains.

3. Get hosting account.

Choosing the hosting account is the next thing that needs to be done once the domain name has been selected. There are two alternatives available in this case.

Those who are not in the position to spend on the blog they are starting and are not concerned about having limited control over the blog can select a free blogging platform.

As for those who are aiming to create a professional looking blog will have to invest into a paid blogging platform, which is not such an expensive alternative. There are many hosting companies that are offering affordably priced hosting packages such as Bluehost or GVO for just $1 trial.

4. Install WordPress Blog

Once an individual hosting account has been purchased, installing WordPress blog platform into the account is the next thing that will have to be done.

The interface as well as the theme of the blog will be provided by this program. This software can prove to be quite useful and there are many ways of installing.

As for those who have no idea how to get it installed, installation instructions can be obtained from various hosting companies or let the expert do the WordPress Blog Setup for you in just minutes.

5. Create Content to Publish

Content can be posted into a newly started blog once WordPress has been installed and the blog creator has logged into the account.

The login link to the site will be available once a blog creator navigates to their blog using a web browser. This is all it takes to start a blog and with all of this information, most people should be able to judge that it is not such a complicated task.

Therefore those wondering how start a blog, simply need to keep these steps in mind and get started.

If you’re that lazy, stop writing content the hard way. I recommend use this best selling leads content pack (10 articles) for your blog every month.

To your prosperity,
