HOW TO START A BLOG IN LESS THAN 2 HRS
Blogging, it seems, has become even more popular in 2015. Well I am here to show you how I set my blog up in less than 2 hrs. I wanted a blog to be able to teach others what I know. You can set your blog up for whatever reason you may have, but always remember, the streets is watching!
PICK A NAME
This is important. Think of your blog as a business, because hopefully you’re working towards monetizing your blog. Make your name memorable. Make it your BRAND. Make sure that your name, or slight variation of your name, is available for other social media outlets.
. Go ahead and do a search for the name you are thinking of using. This will be great when you’re branding your blog/business.
BUY YOUR DOMAIN/HOSTING
That’s right. Pick your name. Make it Great! Once you have your golden name solid and chosen, head over to BlueHost to purchase your hosting and domain.
