How to start a blog in 2021

Find your niche

Everybody has something that they love to do, from shopping, traveling, finance, teaching people languages, collecting shoes, DIY, there are many things that you can write about and people will read it.

Do not get swallowed up in the commercial part when you see some big blogs putting their revenue up, and then you will try to get in their niche because of the money, pursue that you love and that will help immensely at the hardest times.

Write few blogs without having a website

I would recommend that you write a couple of posts and share them with your friends or family, why? you may ask. The main reason is that you will get honest feedback and what you need to work on so that your first blog posts can be amazing when people are reading them.

Sidenote – Since I’m from Europe, and my primary language is not English I have used Grammarly at the begging and I’m still using it sometimes because it helps with those tricky words that you may forget how to write.

Creating a Blog (Technical side)

Choose the right hosting

This part is going to be a little technical, so please bear with me. Hosting is a mechanic where your website is going to be placed once you register your domain on www.

Several hosting providers are great so you can choose which one fits you the best:

  • EasyWP (used at the begging, this amazing provider offers monthly payments instead of annually)
  • BlueHost

Install WordPress or any other CMS

This is the most important part, when choosing a hosting provider have in mind what platform do you want to work in, Shopify, WordPress, Drupal, Joomla.

I have been using WordPress as a blogger and other ventures for over 5 years now, and this is by far the best one to use, it is easy with an amazing amount of customization.

Choose the right theme and builder

When WordPress is installed there are many things that you will need to do, from choosing a theme to choosing a builder. Here are some hints on what themes and builders I love to use.



  • Elementor – This is a must, in my opinion, premade templates, and pages, Elementor PRO has everything you need to create an amazing world-class blog. 

Start publishing and writing

When all of the above is done (easier said than done, I know), then you just need to start writing and publishing the amazing posts that you create.
