Have you considered starting your own blog? Have you wondered if you could make money writing about something you love?
My journey on Cruze Clan started with the same thought. Mostly though I wanted to follow what God had put on my heart. I wanted to share my journey, my testimony, my life experiences to anyone who might need encouragement or a push toward what God created them for.
But I also hoped for more income for my family so that I could make more memories with them and spend more time with them. My husband and I have a great desire to live and give abundantly. So what better way to accomplish these goals than to start a blog doing something I love!
I quickly found out the only way to set up a blog to have the potential to earn money was to have a self-hosted WordPress platform.
I didn’t even know what that meant, and to tell you the truth I hardly know what it means now. But I do know that it means you own your domain which is essential to earning income through it.
If you’re interested in starting a blog, use my link to the Bluehost site. They have a killer deal to get started at $2.95 per month and a free domain for a year.
If you are new to blogging or money is tight paying for this service my seem crazy at first, but it’s well worth it if you are serious about starting a blog. You can always try it out for a period of time to see if it’s for you. Plus there is a 30-day money back guarantee.
After setting up the Bluehost platform, you’ll also need to install WordPress. But don’t worry that’s easy to do and there will be a step-by-step guide to lead you through. I am no computer genius but I was able to handle it just fine!
Before you get started you’ll want to have the domain name you want ready to go.
Here are some step-by-step instructions on how to get started:
2) Choose a plan. Basic is all you’ll really need at this point. But if you’re feeling extra confident the best deal is the prime for sure.
3) Choose a Domain! This is the fun part. Pick your website name.
4) Create your account.
5) Next you enter your payment information:
Once you have this set up, Bluehost will continue to lead you through the set up process for WordPress which will be used to actually write your blog posts.
It takes some time to learn WordPress and set up your actual website to look the way you want it to, but it’s also a lot of fun and you get to be creative.
Writing on my blog has been incredibly fulfilling, I hope it is for you as well. Enjoy getting started with your own blog!
