How to start a blog with WordPress?

Have you ever considered starting a blog?

How to start a blog with wordpress

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.

Have a look at this short video below, and I will walk you through how quick and easy it is to build a WordPress website… ready to start blogging.

As you can see it really is a simple and quick process to build a website… ready to start your own blog.

As I mentioned in the video, Wealthy Affiliate will also offer you a free starter training course and membership, that will guide you through the process of building out your website, and teaching you how you can monetise your blog.

  1. I have always wanted to start my own blog but never know where and how to start it. WordPress is a great blogging management platform as they do have lots of plugins that are easy to install and use, especially for a newbie like me.

    Thanks for pointing us to Wealthy Affiliate, it looks awesome. I didn’t know WordPress is somehow integrated with WA. It is great to know they offer training courses too! Thanks for the great post!

    • Thanks for your comment Alex 🙂

      Yes, WordPress is very easy to work with.

      Lot’s of people get put off by the idea of having their own website and blog because they think it is too technical and difficult.

      WordPress and Wealthy Affiliate’s site-rubix website builder takes all of these issues away and make it extremely simple!

      Along with their starter training membership, you will have all the tools, training and support that you need to build a successful website, blog and online business!

      Thanks again!

  2. Hi John, I totally agree with you on this.
    Wordpress is the best website building tool that I have used. It is very easy to navigate and you have such a great range of themes available to choose form.
    It is simple to add posts, pages, media and plugins and the end product looks so professional.
    Great review of a great product!
    Thanks, Kris

    • Thanks Kris, glad you liked my post!

      I definitely agree with you of the ease of use, all you need is a little guidance and you can build your own successful blog!

  3. Outstanding. Very professional. Informative. I’m sorry I have no input that would improve what you already have. I too have joined WA just 16 days ago and did not know anything about what I was getting into, I only knew it was free to join and had good reviews. Now I have one website,multiple post and blogs. I have been approved by 4 companies and already have the makings for my next website. This is up there with the few most valuable decisions I have made in my life.

    • Great to hear from a “newbie” about how they are building their very own blog and online business with WordPress and Wealthy Affiliate!

      It sounds like you are making great progress so far!

      Keep up the great work! 🙂

  4. I got to tell you I have been trying to start a blog for years and did not know how to go about it. With your top recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate they introduced me to WordPress, and I’m glad I did. WordPress is so easy to use and the FAQs forum helps out a whole lot. I literally found a solution to one of my problems and fixed it the other day in under a 2 mins. I got to say if anyone needs training Wealthy Affiliate is the BEST, and wordpress is free to use so everyone should be blogging with it.

    • Thanks for your comment and feedback Jonathan!

      The great thing about using Wealthy Affiliate to host your WordPress blog is all of the additional training and support that comes along with it!

      Definitely my #1 recommendation for hosting your websites for sure! 🙂
