How to start a food blog
You only need to follow these three steps:
Step 1) Blog name and hosting
Step 2) Installing WordPress
Step 3) Choosing a theme
1. Blog name and hosting
The first thing you have to do is choosing a name or domain for your blog (ours is simpleveganblog.com).
It’s useful to make a brainstorm and get a few options. If you can find a short and easy to remember name, great. It’s the name of your blog, so you have to like it and it has to help readers to know what you write about.
When you have thought the name of your new blog, you can look in Bluehost if it is available or not.
Now you have to choose a hosting, the virtual place where your blog will be. We use the basic hosting of bluehost, it has a nice price and it works very well.
Once you choose your domain, you’ll have to fill your account information.
Choose the pack you want, we chose the 12 Month plan and Domain Privacy Protection (it avoids your private data from being displayed publicly).
2. Installing WordPress
Don’t worry about installing WordPress, with Bluehost it’s really easy! It is automatically installed by default in 2 clicks without any tech knowledge.
First, you have to pick a theme.
Then click Start Building.
Now, you can log in to your Worpress dashboard!
3. Choosing a theme
Congratulations! You’ve created your blog!
Although you have a free WordPress.org theme with Bluehost, I recommend you to get a premium one. The one you can see now on our blog is Foodie, a theme of Studiopress which uses the Genesis framework as a base. They have a lot of cool themes, like Beautiful Pro.
If you want to know more about Genesis and themes, you can take a look at our resource page.
