How to start your own blog

I’ve been writing for some time now, with breaks between work and university stuff, but since I finished my master degree now I’ve been focusing more on my little blog here. Today I’m going to write about how you can start your own blog in just a matter of minutes, although it really depends if you wish to have full control over blog platform or not.

From the start, I want to make sure this is saved there in your own brain, owing a blog requires that you dedicate yourself at least 3-4 times a week to writing your blog content and a lot patience when expecting to get success with your website. For those who really believe this is easy, I’ll just wait to see when you run out of ideas of what to write … That’s when you need to not give up and strive to find your next article.

For those who want to have full control over their platform, they need to consider their own hosting account, a shared account for start would be enough. You can get a hosting service with one of the websites bellow:

Afterwards you will need to install a blog script, eg. wordpress, b2evolution, pixie or others are available. The above hosting services offers an automatic installer, Softaculuos that you can use to easily install your blog script in a matter of seconds.

If you do not wish to spend any money for a hosting service, you can consider using one of the following:


There is also a nice video presentation from, see bellow:

There are a few free other alternatives, but the above are highly recommended and are being indexed really fast by search engines. Personally I choose wordpress, mainly because its a long developed script (more then 10 years now) and really easy to customize it per your needs. Comes with lots of themes and plugins that you can install and make your site exactly the way you wanted.

Choose for what you’re going to write about

This is I believe a subject that can be made in a new article, who knows, may I will on later time. This may be considered the starting point, its nice you considered to have the hosting plan and script or went for or, but you should from the start know that “I’m going to write about food recipes …” or something like that. Basically this is what makes you want to start a blog, the desire to want to write about something. So basically first thing is to decide exactly what it is you want to write about.

After you decided exactly what you wish to write about, the rest I think is just you finding the time to write. Even for me this is not easily found and I do find the time I write one or two articles in advance and squedle the publish of it at later date so that I’m at least bit consistent with my published articles.

This is about it, further ahead you will need to optize your website and promote it to search engines, this is what I really found time consuming. Also keep in mind that while starting the blog is fast, getting successfully depends a lot on your commitment and lots of patience growing your little project.

Until next time, cheers!
