Start a blog in just 4 easy steps! 

  1. Pick your blog's name and niche: remember that name of your blog should represent the general topics you'll be writing about. It can be also your name, name of your company or a smart combination of words. It's up to you.
  2. Choose an awesome web host like CloudAccess.net! The CloudAccess.net Platform is built and optimized for Joomla Hosting and WordPress Hosting. We offer support services like free tutorials and an industry-leading Support Team ready to help clients develop their Joomla or WordPress websites.
  3. Design your website: very important step! Design it good and your blog will be popular in a matter of time. Remember that your website needs to be both eye-catching and practical. Choose colors and theme very wisely, as you don't want your visitors to leave your blog and never come back. Don't forget about adding a logo and a favicon (a site icon) because it will help you to boost your brand awareness.
  4. Write your first blog post: I know, it may sound easy, but sometimes it's not. Did you know that each day over 4.4 million blog posts are published? With so many posts it may be hard to create content that will really stand out. What is more, not every person knows how to write an awesome piece of content. If you are one of those people, don't worry - our next post will be about writing :)
