If you ever have found yourself on Pinterest pinning "eat, sleep, create" because you thought it personified you perfectly, and you have been inkling for a while to set up your own blog to showcase your creativity in DIY projects or home decorating than this post is for you. Here is my guide on how to DIY your own blog in 4 simple steps that takes minutes to do.
HOW TO SET UP A BLOG
1. Sign up for
2. Install WordPress
3. Pick a design template
3. Write your first post
SIGN UP FOR HOSTING AND A DOMAIN NAME
To begin you'll need to sign up for a hosting service to create your blog on, and a name for your blog. While coming up with a great name might be left to a stroke of genius creativity at some random moment in the day, signing up for web hosting is quick to do.
When creating your Bluehost account you will be asked to enterwhat you would like your domain name to be, so you'll need to know your blog name before you sign up. For those of you who already have a domain name, and would like to set up your hosting you can fill in your url in the second box where it says transfer domain.
Next, pick your account plan, and if you wish you can add additional extras such auto back up of your blog.
Once your hosting is all set up you'll need to install a content management system, which is an easier way to create a blog that does not require you to do any coding, but you are given the freedom to code if you wish. I've used both Joomla and Wordpress, but I strongly recomend Wordpress as it is easier to use.
