How to start a blog with WordPress?
Have you ever considered starting a blog?
Have you even wondered how you could learn how to start a blog with WordPress, as you may have heard that this is the best blogging platform available… which it is!
Well fortunately, these days it is very easy to get a blog up and running in no time at all.
What is a blog?
But first, what actually is a blog?
A blog is actually short for weblog, and it is really just a series of entries or posts that is regularly updated on a website on the Internet.
For example, you may be travelling around the world and want to write a travel blog.
Each week you can write a post detailing your travels, adventures and experiences.
You can write a blog on cooking, being a stay at home parent, gardening, home improvement, fitness, relationships, finance, making money online, sport… absolutely anything that interests you, that you are passionate about, have some knowledge or expertise in, or want to learn about.
You can blog about your experiences, adventures, skills, funny anecdotes, or absolutely anything else that you like.
If you do it the right way, you can even learn how to make a lot of money with your blog, as well as entertaining and educating your audience.
So you can see why having a blog is becoming increasingly popular these days.
But you need a platform for your blog and this is where WordPress is so valuable.
What is WordPress?
WordPress is simply the easiest, most powerful, and arguably the most popular blogging and website content management system in existence today.
Personally, I believe that WordPress is the best blogging platform that you can use to build out your own personal blog.
You can also add different plugins and widgets that can add all sorts of cool features to your WordPress blog.
What else do you need?
While WordPress itself is free to use, you will need somewhere to host it.
This is a bit like paying rent for your website on the world-wide web.
There are some decent hosting platforms that are relatively inexpensive, such as Bluehost and Hostgator.
But what I would personally recommend is Wealthy Affiliate (WA) and their Site-Rubix website builder.
With the Site-Rubix website builder, WA can offer you an extremely robust website builder and hosting platform that will stand up to any other platform that is currently available.
