1. Determine What You Want to Blog About


This was pretty easy for me! I am passionate about food and crafts. Most of my day revolves around these two topics. My kids are just as involved in these hobbies of mine. I am always haring my recipes and motivating people to get creative.

This is why I knew that blogging was for me. If you have a hobbie, trade, or skill that defines you as you… then get a blog and share what you know. Basically, if you have an idea there are lots of people out there that want to hear about it. If there is anything I’ve learned about blogging, that statement right there is absolute truth.

2. Purchase Your Domain & Hosting Service

I am the proud owner of  I can’t even begin to explain how exciting it is.  I eat, sleep, and drink! It is on my mind constantly. I have a new outlook on everything, because of my blog. I find myself thinking more creatively and growing more motivated now that I have my blog.

Bread & With It is hosted on Blue Host.  You need to purchase your own domain and hosting service, because if you decide to go through wordpress or other free blogging service you will never be able to set up advertising. Basically you are stuck following their rules and won’t be able to have the freedom to make money or do as you please.

I can honestly say that going through Blue Host, from start to finish, was a piece of cake.  They have a one click set-up for WordPress which made my life incredibly simple.  I highly recommend keeping it simple and letting Blue Host do their thing.

The ads says $3.95/month but I was able to get this site for $2.95/month for 24 months.  They should offer that or something equivalent once you begin the sign up process.
