Getting Your Own Blog – The Journey Ahead.

 

Starting Your Blog Journey

I started out some years ago and, like so many others, I started a blog online. I had no idea what I was doing and actually never got any traffic. Frustrated, I abandoned that site and was left disappointed and in total mystery as to how other bloggers were doing it. Getting yourself a free site is not always the best option because, ‘free’ in my experience, means no options for help and support and ultimately your site goes nowhere.

After some time faffing around online I eventually got myself trained. Now, with the start of your own website (Beginning the Right Way), you have a great opportunity to kick-start your own online biz adventures! It is going to be fun and I do wish you the very best of success – because, lets face it guys – its amazing to be able to get 10’s of 1000’s of visitors to your site every month!!

 

MY POINT IS THIS:-

Should you be new at all this, and find yourself needing some help, just go ahead and bookmark this page right now! You can ALWAYS come back here and I will be happy to help you as much as possible. God knows I could of done with such help when I first started out. Deal? – OK, let us begin.

How to Start a Blog Now – Step by Step Guide to Building Your Own Website.

Just so there is no confusion, a ‘blog’ and a ‘website’ are synonyms for each other i.e. they are interchangeable. The same with little difference in meaning.

The Start of Your Story Online

Remember to Always Network with Other Bloggers and Online Entrepreneurs! They will be an Invaluable Source of Opportunities for You Moving Forward.

 

First thing you are going to want to do is think up a SHORT website name!

 

 

PICKING YOUR WEBSITE NAME TIPS!

Long website names are hard to remember and makes it really difficult for others to find you online. Be sure to consider the following:-

 

1). Your website name is no more than three words long! You may notice this websites name is only two words long, ‘scamwitness.com.

2). Your website name should usually encapsulate what your site is about! Don’t worry if not, Google will rank your content according to your ‘keywords’ anyways. I see many bloggers using their names and Google likes them just fine 🙂 .

3). Always go for your own dot com! Google gives you better rankings.

 

Assuming you have a name in mind LETS GET THE BALL ROLLING!

 

 

 

WordPress and Web hosting – What are those?

 

Bloggers #1 Platform

Who here ever tried Blogger?!

That is where I started off. It was free and exciting and I failed at it miserablyLOL!

WordPress is a Platform that will help your website do a lot better. It updates its plugins almost daily and it is always ahead of the curve in helping their users. There are others but WordPress is the World’s Leaders in this area and is considered for those that are serious about making it online.

 

 

 

Web hosting?

Hosting and What it is.

We all access the internet via our devices. However, our devices are not powerful enough to access the net alone! This is where servers come into play. They are just big-as-hell computers with tons of memory that are powerful enough to allow many users, millions even, to access the net anytime simultaneously.

There are many companies that have these servers that provide ‘Web hosting’ as their service. Today we will be showing you how to make your website with one of the Online Worlds Leaders in Web hosting. They are called BlueHost and they could not have made the whole process any easier!
