How Do You Build a Blog?

Start your blog by choosing a topic you are passionate about, setting up a blogging platform and writing posts. You have many options for publishing content online. Blogger and Tumblr are a couple of popular blogging websites, but you can also choose to purchase a domain name and Web hosting.

  1. Select a topic of passion

    Select a topic that motivates you to write. The best topic to write about is one with which you have passion or experience. If you are not inspired by your topic, you might find it hard to write posts about it.

  2. Set up the blog platform

    If you cannot afford to start a website or your blogging as a hobby, sign up with Tumblr, Blogger or a similar website. If you wish to start a new website dedicated to your blog, sign up with a Web hosting company, such as GoDaddy, iPage or Web Hosting Hub. Choose a hosting option that is compatible with WordPress, which is a popular blogging software program. Install WordPress if the hosting option does not automatically do so.

  3. Start creating content

    With WordPress installed, log in to the software's administrator panel. Add new blog posts in the Posts section. Adjust the appearance of your website by installing themes. Add permanent pages, such as "About Us" and "Contact," to your blog by adding content to the Pages section. Install plugins to add new features to WordPress, such as search engine optimization with "WordPress SEO by Yoast."
