It’s hard to deny the power of a voice that reaches million of ears. That voice can be yours. The good news is that you can reach even more ears through the power of blogging. Unleash the potential within and give it a try, and while you do – start off the right way. Self-hosted WordPress means that you’ll have a full control and ownership of your blog. This isn’t true with the free platforms. Don’t get us wrong, we are not selling the product – it’s a free software – we are merely offering assistance with building it. Want to do it yourself, instead? No problem. We are happy to offer free advice to help get you started. Please check FAQ below or contact us now – it doesn’t cost anything.
Thank you so much for helping me to bring my vision to life and creating the landing page I envisioned! You were extremely professional and easy to work with and I appreciate the speed in which you responded to my questions and concerns…not to mention how quickly you were able to complete the project. I’ll definitely recommend Blog Installations in the future and will be in touch for future projects as needed.
It may well be, but not if you want to be a serious blogger. Most of the people who blog now started on a free blogging platform like wordpress.com or blogger. There’s nothing wrong with that – apart from limiting your potential. If you do want to spread your wings and catch the wind of change and opportunity – read on about self-hosted WordPress.
WordPress is a blogging software, which can be installed on your server (aka web hosting). It allows you to write and edit posts, upload photos and videos, comment and share content, attract customers and earn money from advertisement, etc. WordPress can be extended by plugins and themes, and is supported by millions of users worldwide. Its only limit is your imagination and creativity. For this reason it’s used by more than 16% of top million websites (according to Alexa index). The best feature of WordPress is the ease of use.
While you will make money on blogging (everyone who regularly posts new articles does), there is an initial cost to it. It’s divided in two parts: compulsory (hosting, theme and a domain name), and optional (design – because you can do it yourself or hire someone like me).
Let’s start with a quick overview of the steps involved in launching a new blog:
1. Purchase a domain name and hosting
2. Install wordpress
3. Find and install a theme (see a list of themes in the section above)
4. Add sample content
5. Customise the wordpress theme (including logo design)
6. Install plugins as needed
7. Remove sample content and add real content (at least 4-6 posts and few pages)
8. Set up social media accounts
9. Launch the blog! (the work really starts here)
You can do the above steps yourself or we can do them for you. If you’d like the best of both, you can do part and we can do the rest – it will save you money and time, while you still get professional help. Get in touch for more info.
