You like what I’m doing and thinking of starting your own blog? Okay, let me show you how to create a free wordpress blog in a minute or less. You’ll be blogging your thoughts online in no time!
But wait, the process requires a basic understanding of these two important words…
What is a Blog?
What is WordPress?
Now, here are my recommendations on how to set up a professional-looking, free WordPress blog, fast and easy. Let’s begin with the first steps…
1. Create A Free WordPress Blog With Site Rubix
This is the website builder of the world’s #1 community for affiliate marketers, Wealthy Affiliate. It is in wordpress, and has the same capability of those professional wordpress blogging systems you see out there.
Just a little background of Wealthy Affiliate, it was founded by Kyle Loudon and Carson Lim in 2005 to help affiliate marketers succeed online. More than a decade have passed, the community has grown to be one of the best places to learn online business as well as host websites and blogs.
With the quality of training we have at Wealthy Affiliate, our websites occupy the top spots in the search engines results pages. Like for example, if you will search using the keyword “How To Lose Belly Fat Today”, you will see on the top search results this blog…
In the screenshot, you will notice that the web address of the blog is under Site Rubix (sub domain). With the free website builder (blog builder) that we will be using to create a free wordpress blog, you will have a similar web address.
Kyle’s example: howtolosebellyfattoday-sitespeed.siterubix.com
What you will have: yourwebsitename.siterubix.com
That’s just for the start only.
The goal is to get started at the lowest cost possible. So, here, we’re getting started for free.
Once you start making money with your free website / free blog, you can decide to upgrade and be able to use premium domain names, like the one in this screenshot:
Did you notice the change in the web address? The one boxed in red?
This is the same website shown earlier that was created in Site Rubix platform, the owner just moved the website to a domain name so you are no longer seeing the Site Rubix subdomain.
Moving a blog from Siterubix subdomain to a professional-looking domain like that is a privilege enjoyed by premium members of WA.
But for now, just get started free. Create a blog in a free Site Rubix subdomain.
2. Set Up Your Profile In Our Awesome WA Community
Once you begin the process of creating your free wordpress blog with us, you will be prompted to create your profile in our WA community.
Fill up the form with your complete name, choose your unique username, and then upload your profile picture. You’ll be welcomed by the members of our community, including Kyle, the co-founder of Wealthy Affiliate.
You’ll also receive a message from me posted in your profile welcoming you to our community. In the message, you will learn about our special offers for the “go-getters” and “action-takers”.
Once inside the community, you will receive access to our Live Chat for 7 days as a free Starter Member. You can ASK anything about starting an online business, building up your blog, etc.
You can also connect with other members, view their profiles and click follow. You’ll also discover how friendly our members are, they usually “follow back” those who followed them.
You’ll meet other bloggers, make friends with them (and with me, too!).
3. Access Your Free Online Entrepreneur Certification Course
Wealthy Affiliate over-delivers with our FREE Starter Membership!
Not only you will gain access to the fastest blog builder in the world (Site Rubix), you will also be enrolled to our Free Online Entrepreneur Certification, Getting Started – Level 1.
Here’s a screenshot of the course:
This is by far the most comprehensive training on setting up your own website (your own blog) and yet it comes free as a bonus for using our website building tool.
You will learn everything, from picking your niche (your topic), to creating your blog posts and making them look beautiful. And if you haven’t created a blog post before, in Lesson 7 you will learn how to create/write one.
There’s a step by step video tutorial on how to write a blog post…
Because of this training, I have conquered my fear of writing/blogging. If you are hesitant to blog because English is not your native language, I was hesitant too, until I enrolled in this course.
And unlike any other course out there, you can already make a living while applying immediately what you’re learning.
Access Your Affiliate Bootcamp, Phase 1 (Optional)
Along with your Online Entrepreneur Certification Course, you will receive another training called “Affiliate Bootcamp Phase 1 – Getting Your Business Rolling”.
In this particular training, you will learn how to promote Wealthy Affiliate as a business. With all the good things that you will have, wouldn’t it be great if you recommend this to others and get paid a referral commission?
Take a look at this:
As bloggers, our main purpose for creating a free wordpress blog is to have a platform for expressing our thoughts. But did you know that with most bloggers out there, they are making money out of their blogging?
That’s right. Making money by blogging your passion online!
Some are earning a part-time income, while a number of them are making full-time income just by referring people to Wealthy Affiliate’s blogging platform!
With our platform so good, and the creators of this platform are offering commission for referrals, why not promote this platform too? It’s a good side-business!
Here’s a disclaimer: As an affiliate of WA, I can get paid a commission if you try our tool.
I find this a noble way of getting my message out. I can blog and share inspirational / motivational messages and at the same time make a living. This is way better than doing missionary work and beg for donations all the time!
