Thanks, Sarah. Yes its exactly the same. Once you have WordPress installed on your hosting account, all you then need to do is upload a theme that would work well for you to start a listicle blog. Mythemeshop is always a good choice for themes like that. If you are very sure why you want to blog, it will help you understand and decide what you are going to blog about. If you stay consistent on a subject, you can gain credibility and be considered an expert in your field. Dear Jamie I like what you are doing here.
I want to ask: If I want to have a discussion forum website either open or membership can I get that with wordpress and bluehost? Yes there are ways to create forums with WordPress — you can use lots of plugins to do that some are paid and some are free. Thanks for the great post. I have already started blog an running well but I have one question — If I change my theme then do I get any issue with Google ranking or backlinking? Any changes to your website structure or design can have a positive or negative affect on your Google rankings.

Jamie, thanks for all the great information. I cannot find what I must do to have my number of articles appear in the categories. Can you explain how to insert a plugin for that? You could hard code that into your theme —.

Recently, I realized that few posts are doing really good, and overall the channel is drawing around visits a little less on the weekends. Receiving a loads of encouraging comments, questions, and a few followers too!! Not sure, is this of any significance to think of monetizing it. Can I see this as an opportunity to earn something out of it by contributing content consistently and building it even bigger and better?
My next question is: Should I buy WordPress domain and hosting or something else? If I buy something else, am I not going to lose my traffic, followers? WordPress domain seems to cheapest. What do you think? Is there any disadvantages with buying WordPress domain and hosting?

Go to WordPress. Ultimately I would favour moving to a self-hosted solution so as your blog gains more visitors you can continue to offer the best experience. I think if you did start writing more regularly you would grow your audience significantly, build up an email list and make some money from your blog. I think as you are offering expertise I would suggest creating your own information products — this would mean you could charge people a small fee each year to access your advanced tutorials or some form of extra training.
Hey Jamie, Great site and info here. I have a small blog on tumblr. Choose the Tumblr importer: That link will begin the import process. Then remember to shut down your Tumblr blog once the content has been published on your self hosted WordPress blog. Fantastic information. This is very helpful. Great information on this page and I appreciate all the support you are providing.
I have a few questions to understand what happens next. I agree that Bluehost is a great buy, and I have found the domain name I want; however, when I look at wordpress, it seems that linking the domain name requires a premium membership. Does obtaining the domain and hosting on Bluehost change the fact that WordPress requires that membership?

I am thinking I am misunderstanding a few of the pieces here and hopefully you can provide some clarity. Forget about WordPress. There is no additional cost to this. Once you have installed it which is one click by the way you can then either install a free wordpress theme or buy a premium one from places like Mythemeshop or Themeforest. You access your new site through yourdomainname. Thanks Jamie! The more I looked at wordpress, I realized you were referring to. I just want to say that I think your site is excellent. Well done!!!

I like your articles and appreciate the quick reference guides. Hosting Question Answer Entirely up to you. Yes you can build sites in Muse and Dreamweaver, but if you want to give access to a client to be able to update content themselves, then why try to reinvent the wheel. Use a ready made platform to build on and customise.
WordPress is very light weight compared to Joomla. I have insanely quick load times for most of my sites. So I have this free blog on. Is it possbile to move it? Will I be able to take the content and design of my free blog and move it into my domain name and new hosting? I have created a tutorial telling you how you can move from WordPress.
Suppose I start a blog and write great articles, add a good title, the tags, add nice pictures to it then share everything on social media. How am I going to get decent traffic? What are the reasonable actions you need to take to get traffic, once the posting part is done?

My thing is Google traffic and not the type you pay for. Organic traffic is best. Links from other websites linking to your content. The way I do it is to outreach to other sites.
