Get a Professional Blog

Last updated on June 17th, 2020 at 04:00 pm

You have probably seen a blog and thought it would be a good idea to have one and share your stories or whatever ideas you cherish. But then, you are not familiar with the technical stuff involved and you are not willing to pay a kidney for it.

You could as well be having something running on WordPress or Blogspot, but you want to have it more formal without the wordpress or the blogspot name.

How do you go about it? Here we give you the details.

What you Need for a Blog

If you want to own a blog, there are three things that you will need.

  1. A domain name
    A domain name is the address that you will use to direct people to your blog. This could be a name such as, and you can have different types of extensions such as, .com, .blog, or hundreds of others that are available. The most common ones are and .com. Domain names are offered by domain registration companies like Truehost Cloud and once purchased, they need to be renewed every year.
  2. A web hosting space
    The second thing you need is a storage space on the server where your website content will be stored, including the emails. This you get from a web hosting service provider like Truehost and they are also renewed every year.
  3. A WordPress installation
    The last thing you need is to have WordPress installed into your hosting package and then you can start publishing. This is a straightforward process that you can do on your own, or ask for assistance from Truehost Cloud.
    If you want a more advanced blog, you can get a web designer to design the blog for you although this comes at a cost, and it is a one time thing.

Once you have these, posting content will be like writing on Microsoft Word! How do you get these, and what is the cost?
