How to Be a Blogger

How can I start a blog, How to Create a Blog Site is a very relevant question and this post shows the answer and explains the step-by-step process of how to create a Blog.WordPress is the CMS mostly used for blogging and there are several good plugins available free and paid in WordPress to increase the functionality of the blog site. Here I recommend Bluehost web hosting for any blogger because it provides a free SSL lifetime for WordPress websites and good support as well.

Here is some step by step process for the Bluehost WordPress blog:

#1.Hosting and Domain

Bluehost could be the best hosting provider for WordPress blogs at the same time there are a lot of other providers for hosting. I purchased a shared hosting plan for 3 years along with a one-year free domain which will be renewed after a year.

You can purchase a hosting that you feel is suitable for you by selecting the desired plan, you can purchase by signup/login. The domain can be purchased in Bluehost or from any other provider. Now you can log in to Bluehost with the credentials they sent to you. A screen will appear once you log in and you can log in to your WordPress to manage your blog.


There are many free WordPress themes available, I have been using Ocean WP theme for my WordPress blog. The theme is completely free and you can install all the required plugins on it.

Go to your domain name / wp-admin and log in for e.g. domain/wp-admin. Once you log in there will be a dashboard and go to appearance and themes.

Once navigated to this area type the name of the theme in the search box then install and activate.

#3.SSL(Secure Sockets Layer)

SSL enables the secure encrypted link between the web server and the browser. Bluehost does implement a free SSL for all the sites with WordPress.Either you can activate the SSL for your WordPress blog by going to the billing login or you can contact the support of the Bluehost and ask for the SSL to activate.

Login to Bluehost and Home>My site>Manage Site

Go to security and Enable SSL.

#4.Mail Configuration and Contact Form

After the completion of all the above steps, you can create a webmail for your domain. Use e.g.If the domain is domain.com, The email could be [email protected]

Go to Email in Bluehost account >email>Add Email Account. You can add the email you want and provide the quota then create an account.

Once you created the email go to webmail and log in with the created email address and the password(which is used to log in to your Bluehost account)
