 Get Started Blogging Day 3: How to sign up for hosting. 

The most important thing about blogging is learning how to start a blog.

There are many tutorials online on how to do this. You basically fall in two camps to get a self-hosted blog.

  1. For a Wordpress blog, first you sign up with a host. You can pick from any of these links: Bluehost, HostGator, or SiteGround and then install wordpress.org which is pretty simple to do and the various sites offer steps on how to do so.

  2. You can also sign up on Squarespace instead. Some people really like Squarespace because it is simple and pretty. There is a bit less customization with Squarespace.

Blogging is a really affordable business, hobby, or side hustle.

You can start your Wordpress blog for just a few dollars per month through the pricing available through those links. Squarespace also has some affordable plans.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s lesson on how to earn an income blogging.

If you are interested in starting a blog of your own, I created a tutorial that will help you, How to Start a Blog. If you are asking yourself “Can you seriously make money blogging?” My main tip is to be self-hosted. This is essential if you want to monetize your blog. It also makes you look more professional to companies you will partner with. Blogging income won’t happen unless you are self-hosted. You can pick from any of these links: Bluehost, HostGator, SiteGround or Squarespace.
