I started my journey as a blogger a year ago and over the last few weeks I have had several people ask me how to create a blog for themselves.
Since I started, I have really come to like it. I recommend it to anyone, whether it just be to record your thoughts and experiences in your own time, or whether it be to turn it into a popular,valuable resource with thousands of readers.
I am not yet an expert on blogging, but I have learnt many tips and tricks on how to create a blog that I can share with you. I learnt a lot about the technical aspects of WordPress like editing themes and installing essential plugins. This has taken me many hours of reading and trial and error to learn, and I would love to help others skip many hours by telling them what I have learnt.
I decided to create a step by step tutorial how to create your own blog from scratch, and made it so easy that even a total computer illiterate person can do it. I find it helps me remember too, so we can both benefit.
The Free PDF tutorial covers:
- Choosing and buying a domain name
- Buying your web hosting
- Installing WordPress
- Choosing a theme
- Installing 12 essential plugins that i think every blog should have
- And finally some tips and tricks for editing and customizing the WordPress theme.
It will help anyone get to the point of having their own blog on their own domain, with a nice looking theme, plugins ready to help, and the blog ready to start making a name for itself.
My How To Create A Blog Tutorial is Totally Free…
I put the tutorial up on a page on my blog which you can see here:

Or, get it in a .PDF form so you can save it to your computer, email it to friends, print it out and can come back to it for future reference.
I hope you like it, I have put many hours into it and really hope that it provides value to everyone wanting to create their own blog but do not know how to get started. Any suggestions, comments or critiques are welcome!
Once you have gone through the above resources, and if you are interested to learn more form other experts, my next stop would be Bloggng with John Chow. He’s known how to create a blog for years, and has heaps of great information to share.
As I’ve gone along, I’ve looked at various advice and there is heaps available on the web. If you are into Video Blogging then I can recommend anything from James Wedmore. He is so generous with his advice, he just keeps sending new and great ideas and value which really helps stay motivated and in touch with what is going on on the web.
Have a Rockin’ day
