Ready To Start Building A Website?

Bluehost will be the place where you can “park” your files, they are the “host”. There are other good hosts out there but this is the one I use and the one I can recommend. WordPress is the platform in which you will build the blog. There are many Youtube videos out there with step by step instructions on how to use it and most people have no trouble at all. If you choose bluehost as your host it has an option to install WordPress as the platform right from the beginning making it all that much easier.

  • Bluehost Web Hosting  (affiliate link – I get commissions for purchases made through this link)

 

Some best blogging practices.

  • Be honest – What makes you special is that you are you. People can get information anywhere, they will come and read your blog because of who you are and your experiences.
  • Be ethical – Only support what you believe in and would do or use yourself. While you can make money blogging don’t let money control your blog. Don’t be a sellout. Also make your content original, don’t “borrow” word for word paragraphs from other bloggers.
  • Write with some consistency – Try your best to hold some sort of writing schedule. If you only write when you feel like it you might find it will take a long time to build a significant amount of content on your blog.
  • Post an abundance of original pictures – A picture really is worth a thousand words. People love to see what’s going on at your homestead and not just read about it. Again don’t “borrow” other folks pictures without permission.
