First you can create a new blog for free with any of the following sites: Blogger, TypePad and WordPress. There are more but these three are the most prominent. With blogger you simply sign up for an account with Google and then you have the option of starting a blog using their site blogger. TypePad and WordPress are a little different in which all you have to do is create an account with those two sites and you can create a blog.
Calling customer service before you get started with the web hosting site is a good idea. You want to be able to contact them. They should also be able to speak your language. Also will they offer you a refund if you do not like their service? Will they help you if you have problems setting up your website?
Get Templates – I uses wordpress and the number of different templates associated with this blogging software is amazing. Still, the default trigona cms 1.5 template is rather nice and I still use it for my Jet Movements blog. For my The Article Writer blog, I downloaded an uncluttered, but bright template that is easy on the eyes and nice looking.
Joomla and Drupal are perfect for business sites that include online retail, product reviews, or social networking. These two programs are also suggested if your web page primarily concentrates on graphics/images rather than content.
Different websites offer different search criteria to search for the themes. In order to narrow down your search, because there are a lot of themes in which you have to search for the right one. You must do a few things to narrow down your search, as the websites do not offer an advanced search criteria. So this will help you to find the theme that you are looking for your blog.
Privacy settings – you will want to block the search engines while you are creating your blog, however, don’t forget to turn it in when you are ready to go!
The best thing in my opinion about WordPress is that you can schedule posts to be posted automatically. So let’s say I write three posts in one day but I don’t want them to publish all in one day, I can schedule them to post throughout the week and they will. This is how you work smarter and not harder.
