THE THREE STEPS TO STARTING YOUR BLOG:

Domain Name and Hosting
Installing WordPress
Making it Pretty

1. DOMAIN NAME AND HOSTING

This part is fun! The best way to explain a domain name is to think if it like your address. Every residence has an address, right? A physical home or office is 1234 Name Street. Online it’s usually www.name.com OR https://name.com

What do you want your domain name to be?

Besides this website, another one of mine is GetInThoseJeans.com. Once you’ve thought of the names you like, then click here to go over to Bluehost to see if your domain name is available by entering it in the box that looks like this one below but first pick your hosting plan.  I recommend the lowest package if you will only have one blog.

When you’re asked to pick your plan I suggest the Starter Plan, which is paid in one lump sum instead of monthly, but it’ll definitely save you money.

Below is a screenshot of what I use for package information settings.

The Domain Whois Privacy keeps your personal address and phone number from being displayed to the public.

You will need to host your domain name. Hosting a domain is like renting space on the world wide web or as you may say, internet, to display your blog. Bluehost has great rates and they give you your domain name for free if you choose to host with them.

You gotta love a good deal… I know I do!!

2. INSTALLING WORDPRESS

Once you’ve completed your Bluehost registration you’ll need to go through the process of installing WordPress.

WordPress is blogging software. It’s the software that I use for www.MimiZackery.com. The best part is that it’s VERY easy to use and it’s also very easy to install on your website. BOOM.

Here’s how:

Log into WordPress then find the Website Builders section. From there click on the WordPress logo.

install-wordpress

On the next page click the “Install” button in the “Do it yourself FREE” section.

wordpress-install

 

Click the “Check Domain” button.

check-domain

 

Check the terms and conditions box and then click the “Install Now” button.

wordpress-terms

 

Once you get the message that says “Your install is complete!” you’ll want to click on the “View Credentials” button and write down your Admin URL, Username, and Password. You can change these to something more memorable later, but you’ll need them for your first time logging in.

install-complete

 

wordpress-login

 

Type your Admin URL into your web browser. You’ll see a login screen like the one below. Enter your Username and Password you copied down from the previous step.

log-into-wordpress

 

You’ve officially logged into your blog. Congrats!

Mimi is someone who knows where she is going and has the skill set to get there. In partnering with Mimi, she has been able to mentor and help my husband and I go from near bankruptcy in just 14 months to a 6 figure income. If you have the opportunity to partner with Mimi, I recommend doing just that!
