Start my blog for free

Start blog free

Start my blog for free is the desire of every new blogger and it really is possible if you chose the correct tools to take you forward


What do you need to start a Blog

First of all, a keen desire to write interesting and correct articles that others want to read. This may sound simple and even patronising but you are writing for other people otherwise just keep a diary.

I can give you everything for free, that is not a problem the issue for you to confront is what you are trying to achieve and what is your plan to get there?


So you want a blog but in what Niche?

This is your starting point. A niche is what you want to blog about. It could be cooking, mummy blogging, tuning cars, gardening, fishing or any subject that interests you.


The point of blogging is to be read

To be read you need to be found so narrow down your niche to something that will attract readers. Take cooking for example where there are so many bloggers you will be lost in space. Unless you narrow down the search term.
1.Cooking 3 billion searches
2.Cooking Indian food 488 million
3.cooking Indian food with paprika 13 million
4.cooking Indian food with paprika for vegetarians
down to 11 million and adding a location like
in Texas just 1.4 million monthly searches
You have a chance.


Now you need your own URL


This is your unique internet address and is bought from the likes of GoDaddy or name cheap for about $10 a year, You can do your own name like DonaldFrump.com or Indianintexas.org if they are available names.


Using a carrier address you can get a free name like
Texasindian.siterubix.com that will do the same thing.

When you want to upgrade and start paying is up to you but you are off and running for free.



Parking your blog name with a carrier

This is the next vital step in the chain.
You know what you want to write about
You have selected a niche
A registered URL has been achieved for free
Now a web host.

Another item to this is where I issue a word of caution, all web hosting is not equal, free is too cheap but expensive is too dear so we need to find a middle ground.

With Wealthy Affiliate, you can get two hostings for free, don’t be fooled these are premium hostings with all the bells and whistles. In fact, there is no better hosting on the market.
Furthermore, at WA they know you will achieve and upgrade to a paid service because of some extras you get around training and support. Take this at your own time.

You need a bit of knowledge to start a blog

like learning any new skill it is best to start off with the ground rules to improve your chance of success. At Wealthy Affiliate, you get all the training you can ever need, and mostly it is free.

Plus a free keyword tool to use. Why and what do I do with that you may well ask?

This simple tool will assist you to far greater success than you can imagine.
You will use it every day and no other site offers the same for free.

Maybe you might also have a look at my site at reading my blog for a little more on this subject as I go over many other attributes of a good blog site.

You can learn the difference between a blog, a funnel and a page as you develop new skills.

In conclusion on blogging

The aim is to inform, entertain and more importantly make money. We will show you the way to achieve your personal greatness in your area in the easiest possible way.

Top website hosting providers

Top website hosting providers is a really diverse subject in a market that is saturated with offers, some good some not so good, here we talk through some of the reasons why.

Nowadays everyone wants to be a host, set up a couple of servers and away you go.

Or set up a shop front and be an affiliate of someone else.

Another way is when a company has a product like a page builder and single site hosting comes with that.

Finally, a pure hosting company that specializes in hosting your website. Word Press or other.

Problems with hosting

The problems I have with some of these are;

Longevity, they come and go or fail to maintain upgrades along the way.
Having limited websites or capacity.
The speed of page opening.
Free security certificates or dual HTTP and HTTPS codes.
Domain purchasing. If the host has a domain panel so you are not diverting from another host
Domain renewals.  When you renew a domain has the price escalated.
Inbuilt spam protection.
Automatic backup included
Training on all aspects of the web sites, FREE.
management dashboard that is people friendly
Keyword Tool available.
Affiliate program.
uptime guarantee
Email addresses
Monthly and annual payment plans.
Support service 24-7
Web forum for open discussions.

 

 

 

Website offerings

Are any of these website offerings really necessary?

Yes, they are and every one of them must be considered when subscribing to a service.
You are rarely locked into a service but transferring content can be difficult or impossible
if you choose to move.

Top website hosting providers

Over the years I have tried quite a few hosting sites until finally, I found one that ticks all the boxes.

I have one site that I used to set up a storefront. Try as I might I cannot log into the Dashboard of the domain and my host cannot help me. They blame the program and the program blames them.

I have also used a very cheap site that offered much but delivered little. I cannot transfer content now so I am locked in for the moment.

Another site, my original host continues to put pricing up every year so I transferred away to my new provider so all they have now is my domain at double the price.

I joined a company because I liked the offering although it was on the pricey end of the scale.

I have changed most of my sites over now and in the process of doing the others.

Changing the website host

Why did I change my hosting provider?

The number one reason was that they had appropriate training on what to do to ensure I got the best out of the service.  Domain selection, keywords and SEO and of course writing skills.

If you are using Word press I don’t believe anyone gives as much value as Wealthy  Affiliate.

Take for example the included Keyword search tool. ( about Keywords)

 

 

This is just one of the free offerings that they provide. They tick all the list boxes and add some to it.

Be you New at this or a seasoned expert there is something here for you.

Bonus.
Host two websites for free, yes and get everything we have discussed included in your package.

If you want cheap this is as good as it gets. The perfect fit for the” try before you buy” advocates

When you want a bit of extra income this could be the perfect home for you.

When your basic skill levels need a bit of polishing up, free training.

Setting up your first website without buying a domain or spending a penny, Yep, you got it

 

 

 

Furthermore your web hosting for WordPress must come with certain support items.

  • HTTPS security for free on all sites
  • Fast speed is essential for Google
  • Training on what to do and expect
  • Spam blocking included
  • Site reports on all aspects 
  • More than one Website
  • Site builder
  • Able to load Elementor page builder

What else do you need

One of the better elements is the free Domain name host. This allows you to build a trial  site and then move to a Domain name at a later date.

Buying Domains is also a skill in itself. Many companies start out low cost but increase the cost greatly on renewal. Wealthy Affiliate provides the renewal price at purchase and over time become very price competitive

In conclusion I chose and recommend Wealthy Affiliate as my web host
