Thinking that you’d like to start a blog this year? This post is for you!

Blogging can be scary. I get it! It took me a whole year to launch mine and I want to help you avoid the mistake I made by getting started today.

Imagine yourself only 15 easy minutes away from having your very first blog. And possibly earning an income from the comfort of your home? That's right! It's never been easier. (Oh and did I mention your brand spankn' new blog will be beautiful too?! 🙂 ).

Learn how to start a blog with this step by step guide for begginers. Create your own blog today, learn how. By Kevin Charlie - Blogging Expert.

I am going to show you just how easy it is with my step-by-step tutorial right now. All you need to do is copy exactly what I do and you'll be up and running no time!

FACT: More people than ever before are starting online businesses (even while they have a 9 to 5 job). Sharing their stories and creating extra income for themselves and their family.

3 FEARS THAT KEEP MOST PEOPLE FROM EARNING MONEY ONLINE:

  1. I’m not worth following. This was actually one of my own fears and it’s something you will get over. See, people follow people and you’re worth following too! Just trust me on this one. 
  2. It’s overwhelming and there’s way too many steps. If you skipped over the video, go back up and watch it. I will show you how to create a gorgeous website and blog in only 15 minutes. Just follow my exact steps, I made this with YOU in mind.
  3. I could never earn money online. Everyone has this fear. It’s realistic. I am not going to downplay it at all. But I am going to tell you something equally true – none of us knew how to rake in cash at the start. It’s not a step you worry about until you get the basics down first.

For now your sole mission should be to get that blog up and running. That is what's going to lead to the exciting revenue part later! 

Ready for the step-by-step guide with fancy photos attached?

You better be! Get prepared to have some fun 🙂

THE STEPS TO GETTING STARTED:

  • Choosing Your Domain Name
  • Setting Up Your Hosting
  • Installing WordPress
  • Installing Your FREE Theme (“Astrid”)
  • Creating Your First Beautiful Blog Post
  • Bonus: Design Yourself A Stunning Logo (FREE)

STEP #1: CHOOSING YOUR DOMAIN NAME

My domain name is KevCharlie.com. Choosing a domain name can be tough. Don’t get caught up doing this though. Bluehost gives you the choice of two domains when you sign up. 

So don’t worry about this too much and just pick one! If you don't like it later down the line, you can always use your free spare option. 

The important thing is that you start.

STEP #2: SETTING UP YOUR HOSTING ACCOUNT

This is where your blog will live. Imagine your hosting company is the property your home (or website) sits on.

I did an immense amount of research before I landed myself with Bluehost. Here are a few reasons I decided to go with them and not the hundreds of other hosting companies out there:

  1. Bluehost is very well known and has a great reputation.
  2. Their live-chat tech support is to die for (no more slow emailing back and forth for simple questions).
  3. The pricing packages are highly affordable, and I’ve locked in my readers at $3.49 per month + a free domain (regularly $11.99). Which is an incredible deal!! 
  4. Their service has extremely fast page load times. 
  5. Bluehost is very user-friendly and easy to use.

ACTION STEP: Click HERE to buy your domain and signup for your hosting with Bluehost. Down below is a visual guide to make setting up your blog easier than ever before.

BLUEHOST STEP #1

Visit This Link (the same one as above) and Click “Get Started Now” button.

BLUEHOST STEP #2

Choose the best plan for you.

BLUEHOST STEP #3

Choose your free domain name, or bring over your existing one. Both are made very easy.

BLUEHOST STEP #4

Place your order and pay for your plan.

BLUEHOST STEP #5

After you’ve logged in, you will arrive at the Bluehost dashboard. Here you can install WordPress (the software that runs your blog) with just a few easy clicks and you’re good to go.

BLUEHOST STEP #6

Click the green install button.

BLUEHOST STEP #7

Enter the free domain you just registered for.

 

BLUEHOST STEP #8

The username and password are important to gain access to the WordPress dashboard (the backend of your site). So save these login credentials somewhere safe, as you will be needing them again for Step #10.

BLUEHOST STEP #9

Bluehost will install WordPress to your server and let you know when it’s completed.

Click the “View Credentials” button on the top right side of the page.

 

BLUEHOST STEP #10

Click the “Admin URL:” (right below the green box) and enter your same WordPress login credentials from Step #8. Here it will take you to your WordPress dashboard where you can do almost anything on your blog. From writing new posts to changing theme design.


BONUS: (FREE theme + logo)

You made it! Now it’s time to choose your theme; lucky for you I have found one that is both FREE and beautiful so you don’t need to worry. You can easily switch it out later if you find another you enjoy more.

Go ahead and download the free theme “Astrid” here.

After downloading your theme, return to your WordPress dashboard and click “Appearance” > Themes > Upload a New Theme. Here you will upload the exact same .zip file you just downloaded from your purchase.creating a blog is easy - this is how you set up hosting

BONUS: How to upload your logo (which we easily design together in the video – takes 3 minutes), change colors, add pages, and much, much more.

CONGRATULATIONS!

Now that you’ve officially set up your blog, the adventure has just begun! Don’t let anything hold you back now. If you have any questions, please do ask down below in the comments section.

I’ll be glad to help and do my best to check back on these daily!

    You have nailed all the steps here Kevin. Would you release CSMB already. I have some clients who are sucking all my time with questions about writing a blog post and branding that I am not supposed to guide them through. If I can recommend a comprehensive product like yours, they will let me focus on my responsibilities. 🙂
