Ready to Add Your Contribution to The World?
Not quite yet, my little dreamer!
You have to take an oath first.
- your dream,
- persistence, and
- hard work.
Because this is what you’ll need the most.
(Plus a couple of dollars.)
And I promise you, you will rock the boat!
Now I’ll give you a step by step and tell you one thing hear me out: I swear this is a journey like the one fishermen make. You are the fisherman, you think you’ll fish out something for yourself but you get lured by the sirens down into a sea of noise.
So be wary of that.
Stick to ONE path.
Don’t do this and watch what happens over the course of time!
My million dollar advice to you will be stick to a blogging plan-of-action.
Don’t do this or deem it puny advice and watch what happens over the course of time other than you going nuts!
Let’s get to the basic steps.
- Buy a domain name under your own name. e.g. www.henabilal.com and you won’t regret it.
- Buy a hosting with Siteground and ask them to walk you through setting up a thing called WordPress.
- Start with the default theme or if you have money, go get Genesis Framework.
- Google for some must-have plugins for beginners. Look for security, share-ability, speed, SEO and spam protection.
- Start writing!
You’ll learn the rest along the way if you adopt a learner’s attitude.
Simpler said than done though.
Wherever you get stuck or need a one on one walk through, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
But do give it time; use the patience and hard work you swore an oath to.
