How To Create Your Own Blog

Creating a blog can seem like a daunting task, but with Blue Host and wordpress, it is actually very simple.

When I started my blog, I did it in all the wrong ways, I thought I could just create a free blog, put up some ads and start making money. I was SO WRONG. Not only was my blog not very attractive, it was also not user friendly and was unable to make me any money. Eventually, I learned about Blue Host and have streamlined into a beautiful, money making blog. Here is how you can make yours as well.

Step 1. Create your blog name. I had a name that I thought was good Baking4Boys, but then I realized I wanted to do just more than baking and had to come up with something else. This meant starting over completely, which could have been avoided. Take the time to think about what you want your content to be and create the name from there.

Step 2. Use Blue Host and WordPress to create your site. As previously mentioned I tried to use a free site and it was very limited, I could not put up affiliate ads and it just wasn’t pretty. When you click this Blue Host link it will take you to the page to create your site. It is very, very affordable, just $5.95 per month or $59.40 for the year, you are charged the total yearly amount when you set up your blog.

Once you are in the Blue Host page and you have entered your website name and billing information, you will click on the link that says Add WordPress. From there you insert wordpress, add a beautiful template and can be up and running in less than an hour!

WordPress is very user friendly and there are a lot of helpful videos on the site.

Step 3. Monetize your site. I do this through affiliate programs with Amazon and Ebay.
