Typically in 15 minutes or less, many people can get their blogs set up with the step-by-step process outlined in Step 2.
Don’t feel discouraged if you hit a road block, it’s normal to get stuck here and there. If you find your self stuck somewhere, please reach out to me so that I can help you keep moving forward.
I’m here to help you complete this process.
Before you start your blog building journey, there are two important decisions to make:
One: Picking your domain name.
Two: Selecting your blog host.
Picking A Domain Name For Your Blog
The domain name for this website is startingablog101.com. This is how the world finds my website on the Internet.
Unless your target audience is in a specific country, my advice is to use a domain name ending in .com, .net or .org.
The .com, .net and .org are recognizable around the world, which is great, you want to open yourself up to the entire globe!
The important thing is that you’re happy with the domain that you choose, once you have decided, you’re ready for decision #2 in the process.
Pick a Web Host
This is another important decision.
Web hosts provide the services to allow your blog to be stored online and accessed by visitors online.
Choosing a free host or a crappy host is not recommended, unless of course you want head aches. Don’t even try going there.
Pick a host that you can trust, so you won’t spend countless hours and money to repair or restart your blog when your free host or really cheap host lets you down.
