Today, you are going to learn how to create your own amazing WordPress blog. Personally, I have been blogging for over 8 years and it allows me to combine my passion and job in one! I know that Blogging can be daunting and many of you are afraid of all the back-end work (coding, plugins etc.) that goes into creating a successful blog. However, with Bluehost, you can get started within minutes following the below described simple step. Let’s take it from there and gradually work ourselves towards building a successful blog and business. Now let’s learn how to create a blog! Click here to create your Blog for WordPress with Bluehost, then use the tutorial below to jump-start your Blog career!
First here are my thoughts on why you should choose Bluehost rather than a free or alternative provider.
So, if you are planning to build a successful blog and in the future generate an income from selling your products, creating a thriving online business or selling your consulting work (just examples), then paying for self-hosting and your domain name are a must. If you are still unconvinced how easy it really is to “Create your own WordPress Blog on Bluehost”, go ahead and jump right into watching the step by step tutorial I filmed for you guys. I set up my Blog in just +/- 7 minutes and I talk in that video…A LOT!

Here a few additional thoughts on that first Step. Before you even want to think about running a Blog, creating Blog Posts and making money, you need to think about what your Blog will be all about. Before you continue with how to create your blog think about: What am I writing about? Do I create a Niche or Lifestyle Blog? Do I want to be a hobby blogger or am I intending to make a living out of this? What Blog name do I choose?!!! You need to think about a few things in advanced that will be crucial for the future success and monetization of your blog. If you got this covered head over to Bluehost and continue with my step by step guide on “How to create a Blog”. Also, here are some posts which might help you after you created your blog:
Now that you have decided on the name of your blog you can choose your hosting plan. As seen it the very first step of this guide Bluehost offers several different hosting plans and I quickly want to touch upon the finance of it all:
After you have chosen a password, Bluehost will connect you to your Bluehost account. If you like you can now pick a Theme for your Blog. Otherwise, you can skip this step for now. I would recommend to use the preinstalled basic WP theme and focus on that later when you are more experienced with the interface. If you click on “Start Building” it will transfer you to WordPress. Let me give you a quick rundown of the difference between Bluehost and WordPress.
You will be spending only a little time on Bluehost after setting it up. WordPress will be your main blog management tool. Let me know if you have additional questions on this.
Quick side info: if you click on visit site out of your WordPress login page your blog appears live! It is not, however. When you log out and type in your newly created domain name into your browser, a landing page will appear saying your blog is in progress “coming soon”. Don’t panic this is great. Basically, this means you can work on your blog design, blog posts and really get to know WordPress BEFORE everyone sees your blog. Imaging someone clicking on your site and on the next day everything looks completely different or your posted something by mistake. Take your time to really get to know WordPress until you go live with your Blog.
