How To Start A Blog – Introduction
|Start Your Blog Today! WebHostingHub.com is all you need.|
Ok chances are if you found this website you’re interested in starting your own blog. Hence the name, BlogSetupGuide.com. I commonly talk to people daily that get intimidated with the whole concept of creating a blog. Is it hard? Not really, only takes a matter of minutes. There are many reasons on why someone would choose to create a blog, rather than running a traditional website. Here are the reasons I could think of on why people would desire a blog:
- Niche blogging. Make money online and blog about something you’re passionate about. So for me since I have a lot of lizards I could easily operate a blog that teaches people about bearded dragons, leopard geckos, and crested geckos. Whatever, your idea of interest is you should consider blogging about it. I can’t stress the importance of blogging about something you are passionate about! Make sure other people are also interested in whatever you choose to blog about. Keep it niche related and don’t make the mistake of creating a blog that is about any and everything. Are there other people doing a similar blog? How can you make your blog different and stand out from the crowd? Your first objective is just going to be to mind map. This could mean anything from writing your ideas on “post its” to writing, or even typing out your interest.
- Expand your companies reach. Lot’s of small to medium sized businesses (even large corporate businesses) will be interested in starting a blog for their companies to expand their reach with their customers. You could put up helpful articles, press releases, and content that would improve your customer to business relationships. For instance, a insurance agency might get asked a number of questions on a daily bases about insurance policies, deductibles, ect. You could easily start a blog that answers all these questions and concerns for your future and current clients.
- A hobby. A lot of people are interested to get into blogging just as a hobby. They don’t care to monetize it to make money, but just want to create a blog that will provide fashion tips, real life experiences, reviews on places to eat, entertainment, ect. A lot of people startup blogs and take this approach prior to trying to make money with it. Why is this? Because no one wants to be sold something left and right and if you have a huge following and then monetize it for advertising you will do a whole lot better. Take Facebook as an example, before making any money they kept all the advertisements off their site to provide a massive amount of value for people.
Paid vs Free Blogging Platforms
True, you could start a blog for free at WordPress.com, Blogger.com, Tumblr.com, Weebly.com, ect., but you do not actually own your blog. Don’t get me wrong that’s fine to mess around with blogging without spending any money. If you want to dab into free blogging platforms before you do a paid one you should check out this article on free blogging platforms. Simply put, all your writing and hard work for years could be gone in an instant. It’s time to own your blog and you have came to the right place.

Creating A Blog – Is Very Simple
Creating a blog really only starts with buying a domain name, purchasing web hosting, installing WordPress, and configuring WordPress. Simply put, you can get all this with WebHostingHub.com for under $4 a month. Make sure you follow these steps on this site to get your blog up and running in a matter of minutes.
A lot of people will make it more complicated than it actually is? You don’t have to be a coding nerd in order to get started with your own blog. Truth be told I am not really all that technical when it comes to developing blogs, but I have learned over the years that you don’t have to be. Lots of people actually never get started with their blog because they are intimidated by technology; are you going to be one of the few that actually takes the next step to start your blog?
Starting a blog is as easy as a 1 click installation. This could literally take a couple minutes to install your CMS (WordPress) onto your server. People think your going to have to manage all kinds of MySQL databases, install lots of custom scripts, and even run a fully managed server. I can’t stress the fact that you don’t have to be a technical guru to get your blog up and running.
On the topic of installing a WordPress platform you can choose from many templates or “themes” which are just a fancy name for a blog design. You can switch these out with ease, customize them to your liking, and install a plethora of plugins which could be anything from a Facebook widget to an email opt-in. There are literally millions of plugins and widgets which are 100% free.
A good example of this is actually my site. You can see the amount of people on Facebook that like my site, Twitter followers, and Google +1 users on the left hand side. In the words of Apple; there is a plugin for that. If you can dream it up chances are it has been created and will be easy to install on your blog.
