The problem is that there is just so much information out there that it feels overwhelming! I felt the same way starting out. That’s why I made this easy to follow guide that has everything you need to start right now! The hardest part is acting on your desire to start, so let’s do it together. You’ll be done in 15 minutes!

You’ll want to start by setting up hosting for your blog. I recommend using Bluehost for your hosting. It’s the cheapest option to get the level of professional hosting you’ll want. You get your domain name for free when you sign up! The best part is it’s risk-free, you can cancel anytime. Click here to get started!

click the green button “get started now” button.

Now it’s time for choosing your plan. If you’re strapped for cash you can choose the basic option and there is nothing wrong with that! I personally go with the Prime option. It’s only a few dollars more and gives you domain privacy. Prime also gives you advertising credits. They can give you an awesome boost until you are better established. Click “Select” for whatever plan fits your needs!

Now you’re going to put in your domain name! Remember you can always click “choose later” if you don’t want to be rushed on picking your blog’s name. Include at least one word on your main focus. Don’t worry if you can’t come up with a name yet, continue signing up and you can work on that later!

On the next screen, they will have you enter your information here, almost done!

Next choose which monthly plan makes the most sense for you, remember you can cancel at any time. If you went with the basic option, remember to add domain privacy now! I usually uncheck the other options, you can always add them later.

Finally, you enter your billing information and hit “submit”!

Hit “no thanks” if they offer you upgrades, set your password and you’re ready to login! If you have any trouble, click on the chat box for assistance.

Congratulations! You’ve taken your first step towards a successful blog! Always remember to reward yourself for progress. Make a coffee or do something nice for yourself
