How to Create a Blog for Beginners

I personally have two blog sites that I created back in 2015 which provide a full-time income for me.  I learned how to create a blog for free from a company called, Wealthy Affiliate.  They have a free starter program that includes one free blog site, step-by-step video training on how to start your own blog, and training on how to start a blog to make MONEY.  So if you want to learn how to create a blog site, I suggest Wealthy Affiliate’s free training on how to create a blog for beginners.

Wealthy Affiliate’s training will show you how to make a blog site in WordPress.  Like I said, I have two blog sites.  One is the website you’re on right now. Take a minute to look around this website.  Notice the pages and pages and pages of valuable blog posts and articles.  The appearance of the websites, with easy-to-read menus, banner ads on the sides.  All of the content on my websites is broken down by categories and easy to find.  Every page has social media buttons so people can share my content on social media.  Every page has an opportunity for my visitors to subscribe to my email list.

Wealthy Affiliate taught me step-by-step how to create everything you see on my websites.  I started with a blank white page – a fresh, empty, brand-new-out-of-the-box WordPress website.  I created every bit of content, placed every image, put in all the bells and whistles, links to this, links to that, buttons to click on…all of it.  Wealthy Affiliate taught me, in step-by-step, easy-to-follow videos, how to do everything you see on my websites.  And a great deal of that training is included in the Free Starter Membership.  It’s the best training, in my opinion, on how to start a blog for beginners.

Wealthy Affiliate can teach you how to create a blog site for whatever purpose you desire.  You may just want a blog site to share your travel experiences, to share information regarding one of your hobbies, interests or passions.  You may not be wanting to necessarily learn how to start a blog and make money with it.

But if you do want to learn how to make money with your blog, Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be.  Wealthy Affiliate covers all of the ways you can make money online, but mostly, they specialize in affiliate marketing.  Affiliate marketing is where you become an affiliate (or a rep) for certain products and/or companies and they give you an affiliate link. You write blog posts about those products or companies and include your affiliate link within that content.  Any time someone clicks on one of your affiliate links and make a purchase, you make money.

There are many different ways to make money with your blog, not just with affiliate marketing.  Click below to watch my video, How You Can Make Money from a Blog, which outlines a free training on Wealthy Affiliate called, 6 Ways to Make Money with Your WordPress Blog:

  1. I want to find something meaningful to me that can make me money on line and be home with my girls also. Homeschooling needs my full attention. I’ve been a server at my job for 18 years and I’ve missed so much with my two girls, they are 15 and 11 now. Times flying by and I dont want to miss it anymore. I have a boyfriend who’s a big part of our lives, I have a horse I rescued over a year ago who is my everything and I love to make wooden signs. My 11 year old and my boyfriend are big time creators also. So I was thinking of doing my blog on our art work and some of my horse, he has a sad story till he came to me. I just want some advice on what I’m doing lol.
    Thank you

    1. Wow, Samantha, you could definitely do a blog on some of the things you’re talking about here. Go ahead and sign up for the free starter membership at Wealthy Affiliate. All you need is your email address. Do the 10 free classes and you’ll see that you can definitely do this. I like the horse idea for a blog, but I’m a huge animal lover so that’s probably why LOL.
