Own your website if you want to blog like a PRO!
Prologue in your path to own your website
If you have your own domain, a good hosting provider, and you use the powerful WordPress web software, congratulations, you’re almost doing great in your path to own your website, but bear with me and read to the end, because I want to show you what is missing.
If you are a newbie and still hesitate about starting a blog, or you’re currently using a free blogging service (like Blogger, for example), then you should seriously consider my offer – it includes the rare opportunity of getting help and support from a peer.
Before paying for domains and hosting, I dabbled in free blogging services for a while. The experiences were mixed, and never completely satisfactory. After all, it’s there in their Terms of Service – you have to settle for what they offer for free, or, if you want more, you have to pay. That usually draws the line between blogging as a hobby and professional blogging.
Taking it seriously
Serious bloggers (interested in a revenue generating blog, a blog which supports a business, or one which does both) need to make sure they keep control (and rights) over their content. It’s too risky not to. If you don’t depend on your blog for income (even partial income), there isn’t too much at stake. You get mad, and then you get over it. However, things are different when your blog influences your revenue. With a free blogging service, there is always the risk of waking up one day to a deleted blog. Unfortunately, there are people just like you, who worked hard to produce valuable content for their free blog, and, one day, saw it all… just vanish. All content gone, no more blog. Why? Because when you do not own your website, this can happen; you agree to this when you sign up for an account. Simply put, you are not the highest authority in relation to your blog. I’m neither joking, nor am I trying to scare you. I know people who found themselves in this situation without any warning or reasonable explanation.
The simplest way
When I decided to take blogging seriously (and got frustrated enough with all the limitations of free blogging platforms) I opted for my own domain, with paid web hosting, WordPress web software, and the Genesis framework by Studiopress. This combo was all I needed for creating not only a blog, but a whole website. I can tell you, the blogging experience was nothing like before.
WordPress and Genesis
There’s no time better like the present to ask me to build your WordPress website!
WordPress is simple, highly customizable, and it has many open-source plugins that can assist you in developing your WordPress-based site any way you want. Genesis is a solid WordPress framework by Studiopress, and is used by prestigious sites and people such as Chris Brogan, Darren Rowse of Problogger.net, even WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg. Add to this the excellent customizable ready-made themes, and you have the best tools to build yourself your own professional website.
Registrars, hosting providers – there are plenty to choose from. A hosting program costs between $7.95 and $30 per Month, or even more. The domain will cost you another $12-15 per year. Genesis is aprox. $60 by itself, with a Premium “child theme” it is between $100-150, separate child themes are $35-50 each.
After this, you’re on your own – usually meaning you’ll have to figure out how to implement the framework, themes, plugins, and handle a good amount of frustration, before you even start posting. This scares people off, especially non-tech ones who simply need a blog/website. It doesn’t have to be this way.
I have an alternative for you.
For a total of $149.95 , I offer you the chance to think solely about what you’re going to post on your new website. I will take care of everything for you. I will purchase a domain for you, I will host you for one year, I’ll implement the genesis framework on your site, offer you one Premium child theme at no additional cost, you’ll get custom e-mail, and my support. You don’t have to worry about technical issues, or indexing your new site to Google – your webmaster will help you with that!
I encourage you to check prices and options for yourself, so that you make an informed decision. I’m offering you the professional tools I tested, love, recommend and use myself. Taking into account the fact that I’ve been in the position you are now, I know what is available and the value of my offer. Hosting packages are readily available, unlike the experience of a friend.
