Have you heard of WordPress before?

Do you feel that creating a blog on WordPress would be all bonkers, especially when you are a rookie?

So let me tell you that it’s not that difficult to make a WordPress blog. And yeah, you need not hire a go-to- tech-savvy person in order to create your website.

how to start a wordpress blog in 2021

I have enlisted simple steps which will help you to create a WordPress blog from scratch. So, let’s get started.


Step1: Select a Domain Service Provider and Website Hosting.


I feel that selecting a domain name is the exciting part. It would be best if you gave a thought to what your domain name should be. You can come up with all the creative ideas here but keep in mind that you don’t come up with something downright bizarre.


 Once you have selected your domain name, then you need to choose the best domain service provider and website hosting where you will host your site. As these are the main foundation of a Website, I would urge you to choose the best service provider and hosting service.


Step2: Login to WordPress


Once you are done with step1, you need to login to WordPress. There are several domains and hosting service providers that allow the direct installation of WordPress. 


You can also download the Jetpack plugin. Jetpack is a feature of wordpress.com which helps you with the analytics and which simply adds some of the better features of wordpress.com, into wordpress.org. 


Now, you simply start playing around with the WordPress dashboard by clicking on the various features and feel the magic!


Step3: Select a good template


Once you are in your WordPress login, it’s time to select a good template for your site.

There are enormous templates available out there, so you need to select the one that caters to your demands and suits your niche. FOr example, your theme selection should be based on whether you own a personal website, company website, online store, blog, travels, fitness, etc. It should simply match your basic needs and should be appealing to the customers.


Some of my favourite templates are:


●     Astra

●     GeneratePress

●     Kadence


Step 4: Share your post or your blog


Obviously, you will have to put in some effort into designing your website/blog until you end up with an end product that you are completely in love with. Once your website is ready and good to go then simply share it with your friends, family, and customers in order to get some traffic to it.


Finally, I would like to mention that as and when you get accustomed to your website, you will definitely learn all the tweaks and tips and then voila all the internet world is truly yours!
