Once I realized I wanted to start a blog, instead of jumping into it right ahead, I researched for three straight days. I am usually someone who does his thorough research before getting into anything that needs financial investment. I was researching for the cheapest and at the same time the best option around for everything necessary to start a blog.
I will summarise that experience and the knowledge gained through that research in this series of posts.
We are going to cover the following areas.
- Domain Name Service
- Necessary Plugins
- SEO Basics
- Other important information
Essentially we will need
- a domain name service to register your blog website with your preferred domain name
- a hosting service to host your website in one of their servers.
- a WordPress installation – most widely used one for blogs.
- a Professional Looking Theme to be used as the theme for your blog.
- some of the most important plugins that make blogging experience with WordPress easier.
- knowledge of Search Engine Optimization
So, I will cover these aspects one after the other in this Blogging Basics & Essentials series. Watch out for my further posts.
