How do I start a Blog?

+2 votes
Hi I just want to find out how to make a blog in south africa.

My friend and I want to start our own gaming & related blog on the internet but I have read that we need a domain and Hosting to do this.

Can Afrihost help us with this and maybe just give us some direction on how to set up a blog? We want to use Word Press on our domain but not sure how it all works.

1. Our Linux packages from Silver to Platinum offer free site builders which you can use based on a template.
Once you (or us) installs the templates; you can then customize the look & feel based on what you desire.
More details can also be found on this article

2. You can also use applications such as MS Publisher that have a wizard guiding you step by step.

3. There are many great tutorials on the web which can teach you how to design websites – from basic to advanced. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

The fastest, cheapest and easiest way is to use a web-builder, like WordPress or Weebly (my personal favorite is Wix, for example). But it's always better to do a little research on the website builders available today. Here's quite an informative article on the best of them - Website Builders for Blogs, hope it helps. Best of luck!

There are many websites containing information that you need. Personally I was tired to see pages with info about how to begin your own blog. So I don't think it is going to be hard for you to find anything. I know that is very helpful. There is the whole and detailed information about what to do to create a good blog. Moreover they can offer good hosting and this is great in my opinion. I wish you good luck with your blogging and to become champions in your games!
