Start your blogging journey today, and I will take all of the mystery out of getting started?
I've been blogging now for about two years and have made my obscure, unknown blog to generating leads every day and under 150k in the US.
How To Start A Blog In Less Than 30 Minutes…
Once you understand the power of blogging and how it is changing lives all over the world you will want to jump on the bandwagon.
Blogging can become addicting if you aren't careful. 🙂
People are changing their lives daily with blogging, whether it be through personal stories, building resources for others or using a blog to generate some extra money on the side.
Why You Should Have a Blog
Whether you want to create a website about your favorite pet, hobbies, a struggle you are going through in life or even wanting to try and make a few dollars online, it’s all possible through the use of a blog.
Maybe you just have a passion that you want to let people know about and share with the world.
Whatever the reason you want to use your voice blogging is an excellent method to be seen and heard.
How To Start A Blog – 3 Easy Steps
Below are three easy steps to start your blog today!
1. Decide What Your Blog Is All About
Before even starting your blogging journey you need to decide what and who you are going to reach.
Deciding your audience is where a lot of people get stuck or have too broad an audience.
The more refined you can be with your audience the better.
Many bloggers start with their passion.
Blogging about your passion makes starting a bit easier because you most likely will have a lot of knowledge and experience with your passion.
When I started my blog I wanted to help other “Network Marketers” learn how to market and how to reduce their fear of technology.
These were two things that were my passion.
The bottom line is your blog can be whatever you want it to be; it's your blog.

2. Choosing The Right Blogging Platform
I've been using the WordPress platform since I started blogging and I love it!
Here are just a few of the reasons so many people love and use WordPress.
• Fully customizable with 1000s of themes and plugins to choose from
• Completely free to use, easy to install and little to no training required
• Google loves WordPress blogs because of their clean structure
• The ability to quickly comment and share your blog posts with others
The next question that has to be ask is where do you host your blog?
Hosting Services – Free Services VS Premium Hosting Services
The options for free hosting is using WordPress.com.
While it may be a great place to start, it is very limited and can not be branded with your domain and is filled with ads.
So, if you are limited on funds this may be the way to start, but it's certainly not the recommended method.
Premium Hosting is by far the preferred hosting solution.
With premium hosting you can have:
* Unique Domain Name
* Complete control over your blog
* Spam control
* Access to 1000's of Themes and Plugins
* Secure, Fast, and Reliable Hosting services available
The premium hosting platform that I use is only $49/month and comes with all of the bells and whistles to have you up and running in minutes instead of hours.
I highly recommend this service because they take care of all the heavy lifting allowing you to blog til your heart's content.
Having a secure, reliable, fast platform that has access to a wealth of training is worth its weight in gold.

3. Picking Your Domain Name For Your Blog
Having your personal Domain Name for your blog is probably the most important reason for having a premium hosted blog.
I would recommend using your name if it is available.
For example, my blog is RonDeering.com.
If at all possible stay away from numbers and special character like dashes.
Choose a name that easy to spell and remember.
Stick to the .com, .net, or .org domain extensions if possible.
Don't pick copyright or trademark names.
I use GoDaddy to register my Domains but there are many other sites that work equally as well.
