I get asked by a lot of people what they should do because they want to setup a website and blog for a business or personal use. That’s what I get for being a nerd :) And every time I just tell them to go find a web host and just sign up, or read what Lisa Irby says. For some people, they still are stuck, so I figured I’d show the host I use, Bluehost.com, and how easy it is to get started. If you already have your own website and host you are happy with, you can simply skip this if you so desire.

The really nice thing about Bluehost is that it is only $7.00 a month for basically unlimited storage and bandwidth, and it automates most everything you need. For me, I have been freed up to work on what is most important instead of worrying about dinking around with the web host. Sure, you can use a free service like Blogger.com, but for me, Bluehost’s features, the instant WordPress setup – which runs my site, along with the affordable price are a no brainer.
However, don’t even think about signing up for this if you are wondering what you are going to use it for. This is ONLY if you have decided you want to create a website/blog on something that you believe will help your voice be heard, or you are passionate about, or that you will just plain have fun with. And if you already have a good web host, you’re just reading because I’m entertaining, right?
I’ve been involved with technology my whole life. Once you start getting the momentum and drive to do additional projects in your life, a website and/or blog may be on your radar. If it is – and you find my videos helpful, I will produce more showing you what you can do for your website and blog and it won’t require any technical background – though learning the nuances of some of the tech certainly helps!

Was this video helpful? I know many of you want to share your voice on a website or blog. This is one way to actually make progress on some of your ideas. It’s much easier to do that when you have videos showing you what you can do. I am taking requests for what you want to learn about and see in video – I can go through what the entire web host can do. Just comment below with your questions. Thanks!
If you know what you will use a website for and are comfortable diving right in, and do not already have a good web host, then go ahead:
