Yes, even if you barely know what a web browser is.
If you aren't already sold on the idea, maybe this serves as validation...
For one, it’s your home on the web.
Believe it or not, people care what you have to say. There are people out there interested in what you are interested in.
You can skip the story and cut right to step #1 of the blog setup by clicking here...
You can turn what you love into a business and take this as large as you can imagine.
But, let's start with the truth about blogging...
There are a million different ways to do it and a million different people telling you they have the best way.
Guess what? You've arrived upon one of those ways!
What makes this different, however, is that we don't just use it for ourselves. work with many successful bloggers.
We get to see the tools they use. How they built their site. The behind the scenes. Here's a common pattern most follow...
The overwhelming majority use WordPress.
Here's three reasons why WE like WordPress:
Reason #1: WordPress is free
The software is state of the art and they literally give you for free to download with updates for life.
Reason #2: WordPress is easy
Most people can get a grip of it really quickly. You can be up and running in minutes.
This works much like a cell phone. You have plugins and themes.
Plugins are like apps you download.
They control the function of your site. Like if you wanted to get your blog ranked in the search engines, there is a plugin for that.
Themes are like the look of your site.
Some are free and some you pay for. It's like a plug and play website design that you can customize to your liking.
Reason #3: You can do virtually anything with WordPress
Things like building on online store, a membership site, or even a place to collect donations.
Okay, this next part can get slightly confusing.
Not all WordPress is created equal.
WordPress has two versions. Two? Yes, two.
WordPress.com where you just sign up for the website (like you do on Facebook) and start a blog. This is more for hobbyists and if you do NOT want to use if you want to earn a income from your blog.
You are limited to the themes and plugins you can add to your site, as well as being able to sell and advertise.
Might not be a concern of yours off the bat, but for the cost of one cup of coffee per month, you save yourself many future headaches from switching sites.
That's when those people switch to the second version of WordPress, WordPress.org.
You get free unlimited access to the software. You download it and add to your own web hosting account.
Your hosting account is your digital hard drive. It costs you just under $4 per month and it's where your website files are stored online.
To set this up, it takes just three easy steps and about 20 minutes to have your blog up and running.
Grab a coffee and let's get your blog up and running...
