Before you start choosing a domain name and theme, you need to figure out what topics your blog is going to cover. What are you going to write about on a regular basis?
When I set up my hosting account, there were so many steps involved. I had to decide between a Linux or Windows account, then there was the whole separate c-panel, and FTP, that I was totally lost.
With Bluehost, there are three hosting options to choose from, Basic for $2.95/month, or Plus or Prime for $5.45/month
When you choose a domain name you’ll want to follow three simple rules:
Keep it simple. Refrain from words that are hard to spell or remember.
Use a dot.com – .com is what most people remember when typing in a web address.
Beware of words with multiple spellings: example: to, two, or too.
After you have your account created, you’ll be directed to a page where you need to select your hosting package.
The awesome thing about Bluehost is they make installing WordPress a snap! No tech background needed.
