How to start a blog – in 6 steps:
Follow this step by step guide and you will be able to start your own blog!
1. Plan out what you want to blog about:
– You can cover all kinds of topics when it comes to blogging as long as you think there would be an audience for it. Travelling, cooking and lifestyle are all very common blog topics!
2. Choose your host provider + domain name:
– I would recommend choosing an easy / catchy domain name so your audience can remember it and also choosing a good host provider so you can get technical support if you have a question about your blog.
If you don’t know of any host providers, you can read my post about the host provider I use below (highly recommend them).
Host Providers – difference between hosted and self hosted.
3. Choose your theme for your blog/website:
– I would also recommend choosing a simple theme for your website as the more complicated the theme is, the more likely that people are going to click out of it. You want your audience to spend a good amount of time on your blog so keep it simple but interesting.
4. Start writing and posting regularly:
– This is important as you want to keep your audience engaged, so they don’t forget about you!
5. Share your content/blog:
– This step is very important as you want people to know about your blog or website so sharing is key when it comes to blogging.
