You know, I’ve been blogging a long, long time. I encourage others to blog too, it is such a creative outlet that helps me in so many ways. I just feel like blogging can be a great thing for so many people. One of the common responses, though, when I tell others about blogging is that they don’t know how to do it. They don’t know how to get started. They don’t know how to install a blog, or even what to do to have a website. Well, I am happy to say that I can help you with that! And the good thing is that I can help you get everything going, and it won’t cost you a penny! That’s right, it’s free!
There are costs associated with starting your own website, don’t mistake me. You have to buy a domain name for your site. What is a domain name? It is the name you type in to your browser when you want to go there, like “google.com” or “MindanaoBob.com” (that’s my site!). So, you need to purchase a name where your blog can be located. That will cost you about $10 to $20 per year, depending on where you purchase it from (I recommend GoDaddy for domain name purchases), and what kind of name it is (like .net, .com, .me, etc – they cost different amounts). Also, you need a web host. A web host is a company where you will basically rent space on a computer that is directly connected to the Internet Backbone. Once your website or blog is on that computer, people can access your site. I recommend that you use HostGator for that, I use them and have been quite happy with their service. And, you can get started on HostGator very inexpensively! Yes, you can get your website hosted on HostGatorfor less than $5 per month! Incredible, huh?
Now, then, what is all of this about me helping you for free, though? Yes, once you purchase your domain name and set up your hosting account with HostGator, I will set up a WordPress blog on your site for free! I will even send you videos on how to do everything you need using WordPress. What I do for you will cost you nothing.
