I’m going to give this ago on how to guide you through how to create a blog/website. I your using this guide for any other website; this will help you create the basic layout but from there on, I don’t have much knowledge on the front of selling part. As I am currently focusing on one bit at the time.
Good morning lovely people yep its that time again this morning; that we are here with a new week, new month and summer has finally arrived as the longest day has been and gone. This week I wanted to write about the whole how to create a website guide; I was talking to my friend yes it was Caspian but he was asking me is it possible to create a blog or a page for a charity, so it got me thinking about the way he wanted to know things and how it all worked because he has other people to do that sort of work for him.
I will try my best to guide you all the best of my ability to talk you through it all; as I generally just mess about it with the whole idea of the website idea, to see where it all fits to be honest. People have game plans on how they want their website or blog to work; for me I tried that but it doesn’t work for me, as I am more of a visual learner and explore how things work.
To start with you need to know what you want to call your blog (this is also goes along with the whole company process); a blog name is where you can create and build to make it more stand out than other competition, this will get you know and talked about. For example when I started my blog out for the first time; I wasn’t too sure what to call my blog at the time, I had at least three different types of blogs on the go. Yet lizzysweeklyblogs came out the strongest because I was more on the blog site; creating ideas for it, seeing where it would take me and it wasn’t until august 2016 I started to think hang on let’s see if I can make it into my own blog domin and etc.
Once I had my blog name I went with wordpress.com; with the first basic thing that I tried, it did take me awhile to get going with limit that that I had to begin with. It was okay as I was going as I started to write more blogs; more readers were coming to look at my website, the more encouragement that I had to continue in writing the blogs. This took me about a year and two months to get to build up my readers; the creditably of knowing my work as a blogger, but most importantly a writer within oneself was given the opportunity to know that I am a better than I think I am. To be tell myself to stop being negative towards myself; to say that I am better than this I can do this, your not that sort of person that everyone thinks you are.
In August 2016 I thought I’ll try out the whole run my own domin and etc; so I first went with VistaPrint to be honest it’s okay for normal businesses like shops, etc but I wouldn’t recommend the whole blogging side of things. It was okay doing the layouts and how I wanted it to be like but when it came to the actual blogging side of things; not so great as it wasn’t the way I wanted my blogs to look, as it was big pictures dominating the writing. To which point it wasn’t getting me anywhere; which was bringing me down a lot, as I felt like it was making me a failure as a writer. That was when I went back to my safety net of wordpress.com for a while; so that I could rebuild myself up again, knowing that I’ve got my back up plan to catch me when I needed it the most.
Then by February 2017 I had decided to go and transfer the whole thing to another host; to which is so it made easier for me to still use my domin as I brought it from the previous website that I had started with my own personal domin, this was because I was so use using wordpress and I knew what I was working with and what I wanted my website like to be. Due to the fact that when I was using VistaPrint it wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do; the whole blog post itself wasn’t what I had hoped for. I explained a lot about VistaPrint side of things back in the last paragraph; so I asked in a facebook group of bloggers which is the best blog host and etc to use to keep your blog name but also cheapest, someone had said to me that TOSHost correct me if I got that wrong.
So I went to have a look at it then I started to do the transfer of everything that; I had from applying to take ownership of my blog name, which took 7 days, once that was sorted I had hit another block road and I had to apply for wordpress.com again but this time with my brought domin name. It wasn’t too bad as I had the process was still 7 days but for me it was painful; but I did have my basic line of my old blog website to go on.
After all the hard work of money waiting, paying the fees and etc. I had finally managed to start my new blog website; whilst doing that I was still doing my blogs using my basic blogs, by the time I started to think do I transfer my old blogs or do I start fresh and I decided to start fresh new blogs. Yes the fear of building up my readers and etc is always going to be hard but at the end of the day; what are the risks of taking it serious or not, I kind of do the risk takers at least twice now.
All I can say is that if you want something; people don’t believe in you in your past or around you, you either believe them or you choose to act on it and prove to yourself that you can do it. I did that I keep on proving myself and proving people that I can do things because of rubbing it into people’s faces that I can do things. I believe in myself and prove to people who that I can do it better what they think. You can do the same.
