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.
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.
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!
