Are you interested in starting a blog in 2021? I’m glad you’ve landed on this article. Since the easiest and most search-engine friendly one to work with has to be ‘WordPress’, below is a step-by-step beginner’s guide to starting a WordPress Blog.
First, pick a blog name. Do spend time figuring it out because it will become your brand. The general rule of thumb is to keep it short, easy to say, and easy to spell. Avoid using general names since you don’t want yours to be in a large crowd of similar and competitive domains. Be sure to avoid trademark infringement. If you don’t have anything in mind for now, using a domain name generator is a good idea. You can use your name as well. Second, pick a hosting provider. A quick note on what a hosting provider is – it helps ensure a server space for your blog and your blog needs it to be visible on the Internet. Bluehost, for example, is a good hosting provider. Third, go to WordPress and change your permalinks, set up comments, check your username, etc. Basically, see if there is any setting you should make. Fourth, design your blog. Select from a wide collection of beautiful blog themes and plugins. Finally, since you want your blog to rank high in the search results, it is important to keep tabs on news update about Search algorithms and news about Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
