So you want to blog but you don’t have the first clue about how to get started. Don’t worry; I was in the same spot when I was getting started. From trial and error, I have picked up a few things about how to start a fashion blog with WordPress and would love to share some advice that I have learned about getting started.
Follow these tips and you can soon be on your way to promoting your own blog and talking about fashion.
The Main 3 Steps of Building a Fashion Blog
- Step 1: Find a Web Hosting Company
- Step 2: WordPress Installation
- Step 3: Customizing WordPress
Step 1: Find a Web Hosting Company for your fashion blog
The creation of a fashion blog starts with one main task, whether you have a little free time and want to create a small blog or have the time to make your blog your main focus. You need to have a way of installing WordPress.
Self-Hosted WordPress Sites
When I mention WordPress, I am talking about using WordPress for a self-hosted site with your own domain name and not the free version available at WordPress.com. The free version simply does not have enough features.
Find Quality Blog Hosting
Now, in order to setup a self-hosted WordPress site, you are going to need to choose a web hosting company.
There are literally thousands of different web hosting companies to choose from. This can make it difficult to find the right web hosting company for your needs.
While WordPress has a few recommendations, check out my post Best Blog Hosting Provider Comparison. Many of these companies will provide automated WordPress installation.
Choose a Domain Name
I should also mention the importance of picking out the perfect domain name. You are going to want a domain name that is catchy, easy to remember, and represents your style.
