Good question. I will gladly share my experience.

I started my blog nearly a year ago. It’s not just A game, it’s your work.

But…how the heck do you get started? There’s so much info out there on the web, and everyone’s telling you to do different things. Who do you listen to? Where’s the starting point?

I can speak a lot about this topic, but for you, my dear friend, will be useful some tips.

There’s five main steps you need to do in order to start a blog. If you follow this guide exactly, you’ll have your own blog set up in 30 minutes or less.

  1. Choose your preferred blog platform
  2. Choose web hosting for your blog
  3. Setting up a blog on your own domain
  4. Design your blog 
  5. Useful resources for blogging

So, we made it. Phew. Better late than never! So, without further ado, let’s jump into step 1.

Step 1 – Choose your preferred blogging platform

Choosing where you want to build blog is pretty much the first thing you have to do. I have my blog on Wordpress and I recommend it. There are more than 82 million active users of WordPress = a lot, basically. WordPress is bigger (and probably better) than those two, here are reasons why you should still go with WordPress:

  1. Super easy set-up and is free to use
  2. Tons of free themes and layouts (I’m not kidding, there’s gazillions).
  3. There’s a massive support forum in case you get stuck (you won’t, but it’s nice to have it there if you need it).
  4. Your blog will be insanely fast and it’ll also look Functionality and form – perfect! People can interact with you easily. Your content can be shared, commented on, and so on.

    Step 2 – Self-hosting or a free alternative?

    Whoa, slow down there! This is the biggest decision you’ll have to make before we go any further. You need to decide whether to pay for your blog or grab a free one.WordPress, Tumblr and Blogger all offer free blogs for anyone. Awesome, right? It’s perfect for those of us who aren’t super serious about blogging.

    Step 3 – Start a blog on your own domain (if you chose self-hosting and a custom domain)I’m going to push ahead based on the premise you’ve chosen WordPress, and if you haven’t, you should. Seriously, it’s the best.You’ll need to come up with a domain name you like and also choose a hosting company that can host your blog.Domain:

    The domain is basically the URL of your website. Examples: <a class="q-box Link___StyledBox-t2xg9c-0 dFkjrQ puppeteer_test_link qu-cursor--pointer" title="google.com" href=" removed link " target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Google (<a class="q-box Link___StyledBox-t2xg9c-0 dFkjrQ puppeteer_test_link qu-cursor--pointer" title="google.com" href=" removed link " target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Google is the domain), <a class="q-box Link___StyledBox-t2xg9c-0 dFkjrQ puppeteer_test_link qu-cursor--pointer" title="facebook.com" href=" removed link " target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Log In or Sign Up (<a class="q-box Link___StyledBox-t2xg9c-0 dFkjrQ puppeteer_test_link qu-cursor--pointer" title="facebook.com" href=" removed link " target="_blank" rel="noopener nofollow">Log In or Sign Up is the domain).

    See? Simple!

    Hosting: Hosting is basically the company that puts your website up on the internet so everyone else can see it. Everything will be saved on there.

    Once WordPress is installed on your website, all you have to do to start blogging is go to your WP-Admin page.

    Step 4 – Designing your WordPress blog

    Now, the fun bit.

    Let’s make your blog look exactly how you want it to. I did my own design for my blog, but fot you, you can choose a new theme, you can either head to Appearance > Themes and install a free WordPress theme or you can head to a premium theme website and buy a theme for around $40.

    Last step! Woo

    Step 5 – Useful Resources For Beginner Bloggers
