Starting a blog was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Blogs are growing in popularity as people discover the power of the Internet. A decade ago, blogging was predominantly personal; now, more professionally-oriented blogs are prevalent. Truth be told, over time, blogging evolved from private blogs for loved ones to public blogs for business and personal branding.
The method of using blogs by insurance agents to generate life insurance leads could be a good example of this. A blog can offer so much to insurance businesses like establishing brand authority and letting people see what the insurance company is like. So, as you can see, I have been really motivated by the perks of blogging, which is why I finally decided to go for my own blog.
I’ve been able to support my family’s income and have extra spending money for my family to go on vacations and do much more. Plus with so many different platforms like Clubhouse (check out this Clubhouse Review) writers and bloggers can spread their blogs through social media with other like-minded people and also practise their writing too. A blog can grow through a variety of means such as using affiliate marketing techniques or through social media like Instagram, where many people even use growth services like Combin to boost their following and attract further readers. But before you think about all of that it is important to get a brilliant blog up and running for people to read.

But I’m about to go a step further and give you a step by step guide on how to get started.
First things first. Head over to Bluehost, find Web Hosting and click on the GET STARTED NOW. It should be in green.
Congratulations, you’ve started the process. Next step will be to choose your plan. Now, you don’t want to wait too much longer because as of right now you can get all that I listed above for only $3.95 a month.
Your next step is going to be selecting a plan. You can go with the cheapest plan to get started. For me, I have created multiple websites so it makes more sense to go with
I’ve made it easy for you to see the different plans below.
You will then be directed to creating your account and password for Bluehost.
You’re almost to the fun part….
It’s now time to choose your domain name. My domain name is ericaswalk.com. You can be as creative as you would like or you can simply use your name. (I love helping people create domain names so if you need help shoot me a message)
Next step would be to pick a theme that will best suit your site. Since WordPress offers so many plugins and themes, you can always go back and change the theme or add more plugins if you don’t like it.
Once you’ve picked your theme you will be directed to the back end of your WordPress blog. It will look like this.
WordPress will guide you along and make it extremely easy from here. But I’ll show you just in case 🙂
You will now want to pick which type of blog you are creating. Business, personal or (I don’t know yet).
Once you pick one you should see this next.
You are now set and ready to start creating. Designing and writing your first blog post.
We all have to start somewhere and here is the place to do that.
I can’t wait to see what you create. Make sure to send me over a link to your new site so I can see it.
