What do you prefer, create a quick blog or create it well?

Nowadays, creating a blog is easy because you have different options to choose from:

The fast track with cloud platforms: WordPress (.com version), Blogger, Wix, etc. But they are very limited solutions, even more so in their free plans. They are fine for projects like a simple hobby blog or a blog to try. And, of course, I discourage them for blogs with professional intentions.

The “good” way: this would be WordPress.org with its own hosting. There is a small initial effort in the installation, but in return you get a professional result with enormous potential and flexibility. You can do whatever you want. In this case it is very important to choose a good hosting.

The hosting providers I recommend are SiteGround and Raiola Networks.

As a very cheap hosting option I have had relatively good experiences with Hostgator. On the link you will find the details (price, plans, etc.).

In any case, we will see both options, you choose which one is for you.

You also have two options to use this guide:

If you want to use this guide to create a blog in 5 minutes, you can do it, just go to the blog creation section, execute step 5 that you can see in the table of contents above and you will have your blog up and running.

Creating a blog in 5 minutes is perfect if you have little time, you are in a hurry to start, you do not want to complicate your life at the moment and want to see some first results right now.

Now, in the medium term, I strongly recommend you do not stay there.

Believe me if I tell you that if that’s the maximum effort you’re willing to invest, your blog project won’t get very far.

Wouldn’t it be better to hire a professional to do my blog?

How To Create A Blog

As I said before, in this post you find everything you need to create your blog. But if you have doubts about whether it’s worth doing it yourself, my recommendation is simply that you keep reading. Form with it a more precise idea of what the creation of a blog consists of and with that in your hand you will see it much clearer.

Many people have asked us about a blog creation service, so we ended up creating it. If in the end you decide you don’t want to do it yourself, we can also help you hire a professional you can trust among our collaborators through our service platform.

How To Create A Blog

With cloud platforms like WordPress.com or Blogger, nowadays, creating a blog is no mystery, it is tremendously easy to create a blog completely free and in less than 5 minutes. But creating a blog that works is not a technical issue (this is only the medium), but a matter of strategy and vision. It doesn’t make sense to start a blog without setting a plan.

Understand me: no one has 100% clear ideas at the beginning. But the message I want to convey to you is to think from day one about what your vision and objectives are for your blog.

From then on nothing happens by going for a few months a little stumbling, experimenting, etc.. It’s normal, it’s even good if you make the most of it. But after a while you have to set that vision of your project, along with specific objectives.

Not to do it means to invest many hours of effort in the blog that does not go anywhere and will not give results, for that reason the great majority of the beginners bloggers abandon it, or they begin to realize after many months of the time and effort that they have lost for not meditating a series of vital decisions before beginning to work in their blog.

They have made the mistake of not working rigorously on the vision of their project and have been stumbling all the time until abandoning pro frustration and boredom in the absence of results.

So trust me: don’t make that mistake and do your homework before creating the blog.
