5-Step Blog QuickStart Guide!
Here are five steps so that you can easily start a blog…
1 –> Topic. Choose a Topic! What are you passionate and curious about?
2 –> Domain + Hosting. Select a hosting plan and free domain name via BlueHost. I like the $3.95/month plan. Check domain availability:
3 –> Blogging Platform + Tech Setup. Install WordPress via BlueHost. Setup theme. The coolest thing about using WordPress is that there are SO many plugins that make your blogging experience a breeze + help with SEO, recipes etc. Pro-Tip: Have a professional design a logo and/or header to brand your site. Or check out free services like Canva, and design your own.
4 –> Content. Create Content and Start Blogging! Challenge yourself to try new things, and have new experiences that can fuel your blogging stories, recipes, photos and more.
5 –> Social. Get Social by securing accounts on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Google+ – and start sharing your content and interacting with the blogging community. As your blog grows you can get social in person as well, at industry events and blogger meet-ups.
