I know that have been advocating for you to write and publish your own blog for a while. But, just by throwing the ideas on you and leaving you all by yourselves, may not be so ethical. Now, its time to reveal the secret on how to start your own blog.
So, I planned to provide you the step-by-step procedures for getting your website up and running from the scratch. Let’s call it Dummies series.
Because I am sure we all have gone through the dilemma of whether to go with the free blog sites or maintain our own sites. We all have had the confusion of selecting the platform for the content management system. We all have struggled not just for nailing on a hosting provider but are equally amused by the number of performance options available for the websites.
And not the least, only after actually starting the website, most would have come across the killer terms like SEO, Caching etc.. Exactly that is when we think that had we know all these in advance about these, maybe we would have got a better plan or hosting platforms, etc etc???
Hence, this series.
WIAT. I can hear you saying why this here & now?
Yes, I agree. We already have tons of article on such topics floating around the globe in numerous blogs and articles. Then why?
Am I going to invent something new here? No.
So, why repeat here again?
There is a reason. I am not just going to explain the steps and procedures needed to get your blog up and running, but also use my mistakes I have made in the process as a learning tool – I am good in making mistakes, for I believe mistakes mean you are really trying!
Jokes apart, learning from others mistake is the easiest way to learn quick and safe. So, why take the risk when you can learn from my mistake? Make use of it. Lol.
Since I named it as Dummies series, it makes no sense if I jump directly into the how-tos of hosting your blog sites. So, I will go through some of the real basics in this series of posts. Feel free to respond with your comments in case you have any specific topics to be discussed as a part of this series.
