Perhaps you want to start your own blog as an outlet to journal your daily thoughts and dreams. Or, you can use your blog to share knowledge with others on a topic that is near and dear to your heart. Also, you can start a blog to promote your business or to create a business. If you do, then use your website to build a list of followers. What’s more, you can monetize your website and blog posts for multiple income streams.

I created my first WordPress blog in 2011 and there is so much information out there that it quickly became overwhelming. To learn how, I followed several different blogging influencers and quite often it cost more money than I had to get the “secret sauce” for their success.

Nevertheless, with that accumulated knowledge and experience, I move forward daily devising and discovering new ways to create my own sauce that I share here with you.

If you don’t have the technical skills to accomplish this, please review the options in the last section on this page for using my services to install and design your website for your first blog posting.

Custom Design Websites

These are the components you will need to get started. I am happy to guide you through this process and answer all your questions and concerns.

1. Open a free account with WordPress.org.

2. Purchase Your WordPress Hosting Account: WPEngine Latest Offers.

3. Choose your domain name: Nameboy – Domain Name Search.

5. Select a theme. Astra Theme – Works Best with Elementor Page Builder.

However, if you purchase one of the packages below, you will not need to purchase the Astra Theme or Elementor Builder. I will supply those to you through my developer’s license.

Then, all you do is sit back and relax!

Self-care Progressive Muscle Relaxation

When you select me as your WordPress website designer, this is my process:

✪ Before contract start, we meet on Zoom to go over the details of your WordPress project and determine if we are a good fit.

✪ These are the questions I will ask you:

  1. Are there any special requests outside of the normal build, design, or redesign? This might include security issues that prevent us from a timely completion of your project.
  2. I also ask that you show me three examples of WordPress website styles that you prefer. If you’re not sure, I will work with you to establish your preference before contract start. In other words, I won’t go blindly into a design project.
  3. If this is a redesign project, before the meeting I ask that you provide me with sign on details so that I can view the admin portion of your site. If you are unable to do this because of security issues, I have other options depending on your hosting service.

✪ Also during this meeting we work together to ensure I have the right content, graphic images, logos, or branding guidelines. You will also present me with three examples of WordPress website styles that you prefer.

✪ After a successful zoom meeting, you start the contact.

✪ I design the  main page and submit it as a “design draft”. The client reviews and sends me their review comments.

✪ Finally, once the design is in order, I continue designing the entire website including all pages and archive pages. The client reviews and sends me their review comments.

Big Bang!

Since I first started this website on WPEngine in 2018, this website has not been down even once. One of the most important fail-safes is their backup system which is as easy as pressing a button while you set and forget your backups for every evening. That’s comforting!

Furthermore, the people at WPEngine host WordPress exclusively so there’s premium support at every level of service. Moreover, the support is stress-free which means, very little wait time at the help desk. It also means the help is friendly, courteous, responsive, and best of all, they know their stuff when it comes to WordPress!
