1. First, cut out two pink (or color of your choice) paper strips with a width of about 0.8 inch to 1 inch (2 to 3 cm). The length is variable. Here a US letter/A4 sized paper is used.
2. Put or glue the ends together so the paper strips sit at right angles. Fold one strip over the other until you reach the end. Secure the ends with a dab of glue. Now you have the body of the pig.
3. Draw and cut out two half circles from another piece of pink or other colored paper with the width of about 3 inches (8 cm) and the radius of about 1 inch to 1.6 inches (3 to 4 cm). These are the feet of the pig.
4. Fold the ends of the paper semicircles up.
5. Glue them on at the center of the front and back of the pink (or another color) folded paper garland you made in the beginning.
6. Now draw and cut out a circle from a piece of pink paper (or other colored paper) with a diameter of about 3 inches (8 cm). This is the head of the pig.
7. Draw and cut out the snout of the pig from another piece of pink (or other colored paper) paper with the width of about 2 inches (5 cm) and the length of about 1 inch (2.5 cm).
8. Glue it on the paper circle.
9. Draw the eyes of the pig.
10. Now draw and cut out the ears of the pig from another piece of colored paper. The length of the ears is about 1.4 inches (3.5 cm) and the width is about 1 inch (3 cm).
11. Glue the ears on the back of the pig's head.
12. Add details to the ears if you wish.
13. Glue the head of the pig on the front of the folded paper garland.
14. Finally, draw, cut out the tail of the pig from another piece of colored paper and glue it on the back of the folded paper garland.
15. You did it! Your cute paper pig is finished!

Purchase web hosting and domain. For your blog to be accessible on the Internet, you need web hosting and a domain. Web hosting is the home of your blog and the domain is the address of your blog. You can purchase web hosting and domain within the same company but I recommend to purchase web hosting and domain name with different companies. If you need to change your web host for any reasons, it's easier to move your domain to your new web host.
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 web hosting instead of paying for years in advance. I pay 5$ per month for my web hosting 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 web hosting provider is Siteground. It is especially recommended if you want to host a WordPress blog.
Now you need to install a blogging/content management software or website builder on your web hosting 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 web host provider offer an easy one-click installation for WordPress and many other CMS. Just follow the instructions of your web hosting provider to install WordPress or your preferred CMS.
Once you have created the framework of your blog, it's time to fill it with content. Though you could find much 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!
