If you’ve ever wondered how to start a blog, you’re in luck because that’s exactly what I’m going t...
Starting a blog was one of the best decisions I ever made. In less than a year, I was able to quit my full time job and making a full time living from my blog. Each month I make thousands of dollars online and blogging has allowed me so many opportunities.
"Fifteen minutes is good enough to setup a new blog/website with Bluehost, with the lowest cost. TweetWhen I started out as a new blogger, I made over $17,000 blogging in 6 months. This was all in my spare time too!
Today I want to share how easy it is to start a WordPress blog on Bluehost.
Starting a blog with Bluehost is really cheap and only costs a few dollars a month.
The best part about starting my blog was the low startup costs. I’ve been using Bluehost since I started this blog.
Today I have more than 1000,000+ page-views each month and still use the same plan that I started with!
Because of my great relationship with Bluehost, I have been able to provide my readers with an even lower rate that you can’t find anywhere else.
I am also going to show you how to get a FREE domain name for an entire year when you purchase a 12 month Bluehost plan.
This is a great deal and saves you money!
I would start with the Basic plan. It’s more than enough for bloggers (it’s what I use!). You can always upgrade later if you want.
This is important, so put some thought into blog name. When I picked my blog name, I wanted the name to relate to saving money, getting out of debt and budgeting, so Believe In A Budget make sense. It’s also easy to remember and type. I am really happy with my blog name! You can you this awesome tools to find perfect domain names for your personal or professional website and the best part of it is totally free and easy to use.
"Bluehost is giving all my clients a FREE domain name for 1 year when you sign up for a 12 month hosting plan." Tweet
Choose your planTo get the best price, select the 36 month plan (this is the plan I have!) This will save you money and you don’t have to renew your blog every year. I have heard horror stories from other bloggers that forgot to renew and their blog expired. Don’t make this mistake!
If you aren’t sure if you want 36 months, at least select the 12 month plan. This way you can test the waters so to speak, and still get the FREE domain name.
Bluehost offers refunds, so don’t feel like you are locked into a contract. It’s pro-rated, so if for some reason you want to stop everything, Bluehost will work with you!
Once you have checked out, it’s time to install WordPress. Bluehost makes it super easy to create a WordPress blog. They do most of the work for you!
In Bluehost, click on the hosting tab and then the cpanel tab. Scroll down and select Install WordPress.
Next use the drop down box and click on your domain name.
Fill out the form. Make sure you select a really safe and secure password.
CONGRATS! You did it!
