I’m Casey. The gal behind a DIY Kinda Life. I wanted to share my beginnings as a successful blogger as I feel that I went through so many avenues to get started. I’ve had so many ideas in the past, it’s unbelievable what I’ve done. I will go ahead and tell you, if your goals are to make money online, then you will need to spend a little money to make it. I spent years avoiding paying for hosting, etc., and I regret that move since I realize now I could’ve been ahead of the game a long time ago.
This has honestly been my most successful attempt at starting a website. I have been able to get my site going by starting with Bluehost. I have always been with the Blogger platform from day one and I have came to the realization through my experience with Bluehost and WordPress has been so much smoother. Of course, it took me a few extra days to catch on to the different ways of the WordPress world, but it was all worth it. I have a stunning website that my readers can easily navigate with no blogger platform problems.
Click here to start a WordPress blog through Bluehost. Through this link you will be given several offers to join a plan that Bluehost has. It does offer you the option to pay monthly, but you will be paying a lot more if you don’t sign up for the 12 month plan. They offer more signup options. Don’t be shy, at first I was skeptical, but I finally took the plunge and it has been well worth it. Bluehost is one of the top companies for website hosting of 2016 and I’m excited to offer you this same opportunity.
I will go ahead and tell you that going through WordPress can cost you a fee for a theme that fits your specific needs. Most themes range from $25 to $49 each, but there are thousands of free themes that WordPress offers (my very theme is free since I have my own domain) and they are it’s very professional looking! You can customize most to fit your needs. A premium theme is going to give you what you want exactly, no customizing required.
I hope that I’ve made your life easier in the web hosting world. If you have questions, please feel free to ask. The Bluehost customer service is also great to work with and they will answer any questions that you may have.
