I have had this blog for 2 years now but I haven't really found a right direction for it. When I purchased the domain back in 2015, I had the intention to create a blog and just share my art on it. I created blog posts that had something to do with my art but also other art-related blog posts and even blog posts about how to make money with your art. However, I haven't been really satisfied with it and I have somehow started to neglect it until now. 


When it comes to blogging, you will always here that you should find a niche and don't create a blog that is broad because with a narrow niche you will find your target your audience much better than with a multi-topic blog. I mostly agree with it and I also have a niche blog but as a multipotentialite person it is so hard for me to focus on one niche only and I quickly lose interest and get bored. For this reason, I don't want to suppress my multi-passionate personality with this blog but make it as part of this blog. 

Don't worry. You won't see me write about totally unrelated topics like dancing, Paleo diet and scrapbooking. That would absolutely make no sense but apart from my creative work I will also share information about creativity, spirituality, self-development, multipotentiality and how to make money online with your creative work. I love these topics and I know I can write many blog posts about them without losing interest and getting bored. For me all of these topics are related to one another and they also reflect how I approach my creative work. I'm a spiritual creative because I'm committed to a spiritual life and I feel that creativity is an expression of the true self and is guided by a Higher Power, in my case it is God. Being creative is also a part of self-development and in my own experience creativity has changed and transformed my life for the better. Creativity has also helped me deal with my multipotentialty which is not easy sometimes because it doesn't always fit within a "normal" life. I have turned my creativity into a business. So I will write about all the mentioned topics that have their basis in creativity.

I haven't been really successful with blogging because I wanted to do the same as many others who choose only one niche and stick with it. It hasn't worked for me so far because that's not the real me. I'm a multipotentialite person and I think my blog should also reflect that.

So here I am again with my "new" blog and all facets of my multipotential personality.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post and I hope you follow me along this new blog journey.

Step By Step To Your Own Blog

 

Step 1: 

Purchase webhosting and domain. For your blog to be accessible on the Internet, you need webhosting and a domain. Webhosting is the home of your blog and the domain is the address of your blog. You can purchase webhosting and domain within the same company but I recommend to purchase webhosting and domain name with different companies. If you need to change your webhost  for any reasons, it's easier to move your domain to your new webhost. 

I host my blogs at InterServer and purchase my domain names at Namecheap. What I love about InterServer is the option to pay monthly for webhosting instead of paying for years in advance. I pay 5$ per month for my webhosting at InterServer and about $10 to $13 per year for each of my domains. InterServer has a very great customer service. Whenever I have had an issue, I  have contacted them and they have answered immediately and have always been very helpful and solved my issue.

Another great webhosting provider is Siteground. It is especially recommended if you want to host a WordPress blog.

Step 2: 

Now you need to install a blogging/content management software or website builder on your webhosting server depending on the type of site you want. Most people recommend WordPress because it is the most flexible content management software and it has many features. However, there is a learning curve with using WordPress and it has a weak point - it can be hacked easily due to the MYSQL database. For this reason, you need to be very careful and invest in a good security. Personally, I don't use WordPress because I prefer a content management system that is not so complex and vulnerable. I use a so called flat-file content management software called Typesetter that has no MYSQL database. It stores data in files that are organized in folders instead. It has a similar user interface but it is way more simple than WordPress. I find it's enough for my purposes. If you want to use WordPress or any other CMS, most webhost provider offer an easy one-click installation for WordPress and many other CMS. Just follow the instructions of your webhosting provider to install WordPress or your preferred CMS. 

Step 3: 

Once you have created the framework of your blog, it's time to fill it with content. Though you could find many information about blog content creation online for free, I recommend the Pajama Affiliates courses  from Robin Cockrell and Lesley Stevens since they are affordable and include a free live support in their Facebook group. After purchasing any of their courses, you are not left alone but get help whenever you need it. No other Affiliate Marketing classes offer that kind of expertise and group coaching like the Pajama Affiliates do!
