Create Your First Wordpress Blog

So, you want to start a blog? Great idea! But how do you get started? There’s so much info out there on the web, and everyone’s telling you to do different things. Who do you listen to? Where’s the starting point? Damn, maybe you should just forget it – it’s too confusing! Well, hold up. I used to be a blogging newbie too. I had the same problems.

WordPress platform is amazing when you are opting for professional blogging or creating a business blog. 


You can write about anything you want to, but we suggest you make sure you have interest in writing that topic you about to publish on your blog as people (readers of your blog) will think that you are master in that thing you've created a blog post on.

  • Select A Niche

Before making your first blog pick a niche (topic) for your blog so you can easily write more articles (blog posts) on daily to weekly basis.

Because if you don't update your blog frequently in first days or you can say first months then you can't make a good readership and you can lose the coming success before it comes to you.

Hmm! You can find other fellow bloggers in your niche, but before searching for fellow bloggers make sure that you've selected a perfect topic for your blog.

It's a necessary point.

  •  Find A Domain Name And Get Hosting

If you think that you can create out standing content then follow below steps and this second step is choosing a domain name for your new blog and get hosting for a self-hosted blog.

To create a blog, buy web-hosting and a domain name.
  • Web-hosting is where your files are stored.
  • The domain is the name of your blog.

As there are many free platforms are available but that free blogging platforms don't give you full controls such as cPanel and FTP or any other thing which you'll need after some months of successful blogging.


It's better to have a hosting account on a trusted hosting provider's website.

Read what a trusted and high-quality hosting provider have to prove the security and happiness for you:

  • 30 Day Money back guarantee (you can get your money back when you think that the hosting provider is not good for a reason)
  • Support available for all the time you need on the basis of 24/7/365
  • One click and auto installation for major scripts like WordPress
  • A control panel and all other functions to handle your blog and have fun with hosting account
  • 100 or 99% up-time guarantee so you don't miss single visit on your blog
  • Advertising credits so you can easily make your voice when you all set to show the word and say you have a blog too

Bluehost is best at all above features and even good with many other features which you'll find when you buy a hosting account there.
