In this post, I am going to be walking you through where to start a blog for free. This is for those of you who do not know where to start. Starting anything new can sometimes seem overwhelming with all the choices that are available.
I will be walking you through the necessary steps to start your blog, as well as pointing you in the right direction as to the platform that is best suited for starting your blog for free.
There are a few different steps that you want to take before you start creating your blog. First, you must decide what your blog is going to be about. You want to make sure that whatever topic you choose is something that you enjoy and will have plenty to write about. Remember you will have to consistently write content for your blog to be successful.
Starting a blog for free is easy and there are a few different avenues that you can take. I will cover a few options for you; Siterubix, WordPress, and Wealthy Affiliate.
WordPress is a popular website builder that enables you to create a website for 100% free. Their platform is very user-friendly with step-by-step instructions on how to set up your free website. I will walk you through this now.
First, click here to go to WordPress.com.Then click on the Get Started tab.
Next, complete the necessary fields; name your site, choose site topic, and primary goal for the site. Then click the Continue button at the bottom of the screen.
Next, create your website’s address. You do this by entering a name, keyword, short phrase, etc.
As you can see, a drop-down list appears with available web addresses. Keep in mind that it at all possible the .com web addresses are recommended.
Next, you need to select which plan is right for you depending on your needs.
In this step, you need to setup your login credentials. As you can see, you can use your login to your Google Gmail account.
Congratulations! Your website is complete and live! Next, click on the View My Site tab to customize your site.
The address that you created will be in the window that says Your Subdomain, this is your web address. If you are ready to upgrade to your own domain you can do this now or at a later date.
Siterubix is web building platform that is powered by Wealthy Affiliate and is an easy platform to build your website on. It is free to start. The best part is that your website will be completely built in less than 5 minutes. I will be walking you through building a website on this platform as well.
