#1 Choose your niche/topic

The first step is the most important and most obvious one. What do you wanna write about? Here are some questions you should ask yourself:

What are you interested in?

What is the purpose of your blog?

Who is your audience?

Why should they read your post?

How can you help your audience?

#2 Choose a name for your Lifestyle Blog/domain

Next up would be a name for your  Lifestyle Blog. Choose something that fits you and your blog. That could be your name or something catchy. There is no point in having the cutest blog name, if it doesn't relate to you and the content on your blog and don't forget, you and your blog will be known for the name you choose now. So choose it wisely.

#3 Choose a host and a blog platform

The most popular blog platform is probably WordPress. WordPress offers to options, wordpress.com which means they will host your blog and wordpress.org which means you can create a self-hosted blog. 

If you are serious about blogging, it's wise to use wordpress.org. You will have full control over your site and actually own your blog. 

I recently transferred my WordPress website from .com to .org and let me tell ya that wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. But still, it was the best decision ever. The best fit for me was/is Bluehost. It's super easy to use, it offers great hosting for a fair price and they offer an amazing support system. 

I'm truly not just saying that. When I transferred my blog I had major trouble doing so. I'm good in writing, being creative, blogging but computer stuff? not so much 🙂 Bluehost helped me so much and the best thing they have a live chat. So if you have any problem, you don't have to send an email or call a hotline, you can chat with a real person, who will help you right away. So no more endless waiting for a reply, cause let's be real, who has time for that, right?! 

 

#4 Choose a website template/ Design

Let's talk about looks. After choosing your topic, your platform, and your host, it's time to think about the design. WordPress offers a variety of free themes. I bought my theme, which gives me the possibility of changing...well, everything. You can really personalize your blog and make it you. 

#5 Get creative

This is probably the best part! Get creative. Make your blog your own. It's yours, so make it your own. 

Blogging truly changed my life, sounds dramatic I know 🙂 but it's true! So let it change yours, too.
