Fred called and wants to start his own blog. He has seen lots of other blogs online and he has got a lot to say. How can he create his own blog and not create a lot of work or spend much money?
There are tons of "free" blog sites. This is a great way to get more involved in expanding a hobby or starting a new one. You can start a blog in less than 5 minutes. Some suggested sites include blogger.com, wordpress.com, webnode.com, and squarespace.com.
They are all free and provide you with all of the tools to start a professional looking blog. Many give you the tools to expand the blog site to become a complete web site with all of the formats to make your site stand out.
The key to any site is to get traffic Most of these hosting blog sites have built in "Search Engine Optimizer" (SEO) features. This is the key to any web site. You want people to find you by just typing in key words.
You also may want you own domain name so instead of your site having the name "fredblogsite.wordpress.com" your visiters would enter "fredsblogsite.com" to get to your blog. This of course will cost money but you don't need to spend this untill you find that this is something that you want to do.
A new hobby. Go to your favorite search engine and type "How do I start my own blog". And Have fun!
