How to Create a Website?

Michi Photostory just celebrated its first year anniversary last February and within that year some people asked me how to create a website even my family asked me this question. I admit I’m not an expert when it comes to this topic; the truth is I did not know anything when I started this blog. But with the help of some research, I was able to create my own blog.



Choose Your Platform


So if you want to have your own website, you can do it on your own. There are several free blogging providers that you can choose from; there is 


A. Blogger

B. Tumbler
C. Wordpress
D. Livejournal

I first signed up with Wordpress but I find it too complicated for me so I switch to Blogger. Blogger is more user-friendly so I stick to this provider. 


Choose Your Blog Name
Once you choose your blogging provider, all you have to do is sign up and think for your website name. Sometimes this is the difficult part because most of the time, the name is already taken. Some website owners, use their personal name for their domain. 

Another idea in choosing a name is, you have to consider your blog niche, are you creating a personal, lifestyle, travel or food blogs?. Make sure that your name will blend your niche. 


Design Your Website


Then choose your theme and arrange your layout. If you are just starting out, you can choose from free themes or if you want you can purchase a theme design or hire a website designer to do the work for you. Don't worry you can have a nice blogger theme for as low as $15. Check the $15 Blogger Templates here


Start Posting


Everything is so easy and you don’t need to be an expert, just choose and select. Then the exciting part is creating your first post. If you want to be organized, have a blog planner


Good luck and happy blogging!
