Are you new to blogging and you don't have any idea on how to go about it? Or maybe you don't have money to hire someone to build it? You got nothing to worry again because I will explain every steps to your understand. In the previous post written in this community about blogging platform, I think you should read it here, then come back and follow these steps.

1. Choosing the preferred platform
After reading about blogging platforms then you will have understanding on what you want then you choose your preferable platform.

2. Self hosted or Free hosted
I always advice people to go for self hosted because you have full access and control to it, you can monetize it in anyway you want but free host such as blogger and WordPress.com gives you limit and can shut your blog down without warning.

3. Web host
Platforms like WordPress.org, ghost.org and rest requires web host here are list of best web host plans and most web host has pre installed those platform, you don't need to upload it again.

4. Design
You can get any theme or template of your choice here in the community or outside the community if you didnt find you taste. I said you don't need to pay to start blogging well, I think it does not fully apply here if you have no idea on how to design the blog but that shouldn't scare you away from blogging, just ask in question and answer section, you will surely get answers and guide.

That's all you need and you are good to go.
