Hi! My name is Nilantha Jayawardene, founder of Woblogger.com and I have 4 years of experience in blogging and digital marketing. In this blogging course I want to walk you through the basics of how to start a blog, and while I do, I want to answer some of the basic technical questions that many pre-bloggers need to answer to get their first blog up and running.
There are many reasons to start a blog, but the challenge that faces all aspiring bloggers (including me back in 2012) is: how to start a blog?
There are a few simple steps that you will need to complete to start your blog:
- Choose your blogging platform
- Secure a domain name and get hosting in place with iPage.
- Configure your blog
- Start creating useful content that serves readers
- Driving traffic to your blog
Below I’ll walk you through how I’d approach each step if I were to start a blog and suggest further reading that will be helpful on other important questions like: choosing a niche, writing compelling and engaging content, finding readers for your blog, building community with your blog, and thinking about how to get profits from it, etc.
My hope is that this step by step starting guide will help you to start your first blog. Just enter your email ID below and you will be registered for my free blogging course.
Once you have mastered each chapter in my blogging course, you will be well on your way to running your very own blog. Should you need any help with the setup process, I will be happy to assist you, free of charge. Just contact me.
