A step-by-step guide on how to set up your blog with Siteground
Have you thought about wanting to start a blog and don’t know where to start? If you enjoy writing, then you should definitely start a blog! You also have the opportunity to make money from blogging depending on how much time and effort you put into your blogging site! I am new to blogging as well and found that this is what I really want to do so I have more time with my family and do things that we really love to do! You won’t get rich quick but you surely can earn a passive income from blogging. It all takes work and time. Setting up a blog is easier than you think and even though I am a just starting out as a new blogger, I want to share the information with you on how you can set yours up! When I was starting up a blog, I was at first using go-daddy but I do not recommend go- daddy. I was doing some research and most bloggers recommend using Site-ground. It is a much easiser platform to use! You can visit the website at https://www.siteground.com/go/userlink
Even though I am starting out as a new blogger, I am also here to help share with you information to those who are interested in starting a blog site. There are many opportunities with blogging and to make a passive income. But like I said before, it does take work so it all depends on how much work you put into your blog and yourself! It is a great way to share your experiences with the world, your ideas, marketing, etc.. many opportunities to starting a blog! I will show you the steps here how how you can set your website up! You want to use a site that has WordPress!
Step 1: Pick a niche (topic) that you like **note** If you like talking about multiple things, I recommend putting your niche as a “Lifestyle” otherwise if you pick only 1 niche, then you want to be sure that your blog matches to your topic specifically.
step 2: Pick a name for your Blog site. I highly recommend writing down name ideas for your Blog site to find the best match. Your name should go with your niche as you will use a name for when you create your website. Once you have picked a name, go to step 3.
step 3: Go to https://www.siteground.com/go/userlink click on the right hand corner of the website and scroll down to where is say’s WordPress Hosting
step 4: Choose the best plan and you want to select the GROW BIG option
Step 5: Once you select your plan, then you want to create your website name (domain name) Your domain name should go with your niche
step 6: Once you register your new domain, then you want to fill out your personal information to also create a new account
Step 7: Choose how long you want your website. I would choose the 12 months
Step 8: Before you check out.. go down to EXTRA SERVICES and select Domain Privacy!! I highly recommend that you select that because once you register your new domain, all of your personal information is visible to the public. You want to protect your personal information and make that PRIVATE so you definitely want to check box domain privacy to protect yourself and your information from the public
Step 9: CONGRATULATIONS! You are ready to pay for your website and ready to use WordPress!! If you are new to using WordPress, you will want to play around with the website to get everything set up and get use to how to use your dashboard. I am still learning my way around but once you get a feel for how to use it, you will be all set!
I hope this information was helpful! Thank you for reading and Happy Blogging!!
