Start Your Own Blog Today!

If you have a computer and an Internet connection, then more than likely you are very familiar with Facebook and Twitter.  These two very popular social networking sites are where people can share their thoughts, pictures, ideas or whatever else comes to mind.

I'm more of a Facebook fan than twitter and of course like most that are a part of the Facebook community, I log in quite often to see my friends updates or to update my own status.  And, it's always interesting to see what's on other peoples minds and to read what they have to share.  It's also interesting to me to see how people LOVE to share what's going on in their lives. To read about their passions and their thoughts on a daily, sometimes even hourly basis!

Facebook and Twitter are great, but if you've ever wanted to have your VERY OWN WEBSITE, you can do so for less that 5 bucks a month!

Have Fun And Learn Something New!

Technology is great and technology allows us to do so many wonderful things!  Facebook and Twitter are great, but they both have limitations.  Why not have your own little world that YOU control?

Just from watching my friends comments on Facebook and Twitter each day, I can see that EVERYONE has some sort of passion and I can also see that everyone loves to SHARE those passions with their friends and family!

By having your very own website, you can do so much more than Facebook and Twitter allows.  The possibilities are endless and the only person stopping you from enjoying this exciting new world is YOU!  From watching my friends updates on Facebook, I quickly realize what people are interested in and what their passions are....  the following are just a few that come to mind.

  • Sports
  • Religion
  • Relationships
  • Careers
  • Music
  • Photography
  • Poems and Quotes

Now think about it...  are you a huge sports fan?  What if you could have your very own website where you are able to talk about your favorite sport or team.  YOU control the site!  Dress it up however YOU want! Talk about whatever you want, when ever you want and without the 420 character limitation Facebook has!  If you still want your Facebook friends to read what you've written, simply post a link back to your website!

  • Share your thoughts about your faith or religion.
  • Talk about your favorite hobby (cooking, hunting etc).
  • Share your favorite quotes or poems
  • Blog about your children, vacations, pets
  • Talk about your love life and help others learn from your experiences or simply share your hopes or dreams

You don't have to have all the flashy ads like you see here at this blog, you can make it as simple as YOU want!  But just always remember there are opportunities for you to make money with your blog.

Don't Be Afraid To Try Something New!

Technology can be overwhelming to many people.  Most of the time when I talk to folks about having their very own website, they are very intimidated and think it's way over their head.  Folks it's much easier than you think and along with that, I'm always here to help!  And, if you try and and don't like it, then at least you've tried!  Take a step of faith and test yourself!  Venture out and learn something new and exciting!

How Do You Get Started and How Much Does it Cost?

The first step is to get your domain name!  I always use Godaddy and with the coupon code OYH7 you can get YOUR VERY OWN DOMAIN NAME for $7.49 for .com's.  That fee is for a year! Click the banner below to search for and purchase your very own domain name!

Next you need a place to host your website.  Although Godaddy offers web hosting, Host Gator is THE way to go and you will not be disappointed with their service and tech support.  I have been with HostGator for going on two years now and I highly recommend them! 

NOTE: The banner below shows a price of $7.95 per month.  That price is for UNLIMITED websites!  If you only have one website, you can get the $4.95 per month plan.  Click the banner below and choose the Hosting $4.95/mo option.

So, for less than 8 bucks per year for a domain name, and less than 5 bucks per month for hosting, you can have your very own website!  Oh yeah, there are literally THOUSANDS of FREE WordPress themes for you to choose from!
