Setting up a blog and doing it all by yourself

Jun 9th 2013 at 5:03 PM

How to set up a blog. If you want to set up a blog on theinternet then there are a few things you need to get the mission completed.You need a domain name and a hosting provider to set up a blog. You could go for free but that looks unprofessional like you can not
afford ten dollars a month for hosting.

A domain name costs about ten dollars a year and that is cheap. The domain name is your address on the net. Choose carefully that name because it should be easy to remember and a sought after keyword at the same time. Get a domain name with a com ending. People usually thinks the domain name is a com and if it is something else then they might not remember that it is a org or a net or whatever else.

Now how to install it yourself. At the hosting provider you will get access to the Control panel. You have to get hosting at a provider that have a cPanel  with Fantastico. Fantastico makes it very easy to set up a blog yourself from scratch. Getting someting else will make it more difficult and cPanel is a time saver. Now Hostgator.com is the provider of my choice. The cost is about ten dollars a month for a good hosting solution.

Now if you want to shorten your learning curve then go to my blog and sign up for my free email series on WordPress. Getting a good video course on WordPress will also shorten the learning curve. I can show you where to get one if you are interested. Now setting up a blog is not hard work compared to working a job. Takes some time to learn but when you have done it you have this knowledge forever. Please check out my site at : http://www.sjur-r.com for more about WordPress
