Would you like to set up your own blog?

This a topic that I had in mind for one of the ‘new’ products I was going to create in 2009 …

But I have had some emails about how I went about setting up my blog and asking advice.

The first thing I would advise before doing anything, is get a blank piece of paper and think about what you want to blog about and write down your ideas….

Affiliate Marketing?
eBay Marketing?
Making Money Online?
Weight Loss?
Dating?
Self Branding or Multiple Niche?

Ok, now you know what your niche, the next thing is to think about a domain name, if you are self branding then check and see if your name is available to register, if it is a niche then think about what you are writing about or wanting generate affiliate income from …

For example, if it is a weight loss niche then you want to try and have a ‘keyword rich’ domain name … ie …. something like simpleweightlosstips.com or similair.

I use www.namecheap.com for registering my domains, don’t register it until you check out this link for a coupon code to save money Coupon Codes for Namecheap.com

I would also suggest that you try and obtain a .com or .net extention, try and avoid .info extentions as there is a reason why they are cheap, the spammers use them …

Now you will have the choice a ‘hosted’ blog or a ‘self-hosted’ blog ….. What is this you may wonder?

A ‘hosted’ blog is were your url would be something like tommy.wordpress.com or tommy.blogger.com, now the advantage being they are free and set up in no time, the disadvantage in my eyes being that they do not allow you to post freely links affiliate or IM Links etc, they limit what you are allowed to post or use to monitise your blog.

The worry is that your blog could be shut down or closed without any warning, this would be very frustrating if you have spent months posting, building backlinks, getting established.

A ‘self-hosted’ blog would be where you host the blog on your own webspace, this gives you so much control and means you are able to do anything you want.

It also installs confidence in your reader/visitor, in my opinion and looks more polished and professional.

What do you think?

tommy.wordpress.com or tommy-mclaughlin.com which do you prefer?

Graphics are optional and in all honesty, not something you need to worry about at the moment.

There are many webhost companies out there, I use www.d9hosting.com I can not fault the service I have received and recommend them, however most people use companies like www.hostgator.com now they offer a service of unlimited blogs for only $7.95 a month, but if you enter the coupon code ‘wordpress’ then you can get started for only 1 cent for the first month.

I am going to complete some videos showing how to set up wordpress on your webspace in the next few days.

If there is anything else you want me to show you, plug-ins, themes then feel free to post a comment.

I hope this has helped some of the people who were stuck in what steps to take, if you have manged the above steps, congratulations as you are on your way to setting up your blog.
