Starting a Travel Blog could well be an excellent way to supplement or increase your income. It can usually be done from anywhere and at any time so as to fit in around other commitments so not tying you down.
We explain this and processes software you can use to make this happen and make blogging an easy enjoyable sociable and profitable endeavour !
Firstly we are going to need a domain name for the blog .
There are two different ways to get a FREE DOMAIN NAME and also a place to design and host your blog either a website builder with drag and drop and templates to go straight away and very beginner user friendly or you can go with wordpress approximately 33% of all websites are now done in wordpress and we can send you a Free wordpress course to teach you how just visit our site at the end of the article and request it .
The choice however is still yours and the template designs are adequate and wont really make any difference as to how your posts etc show up in the search results and hence the traffic/visitors that go to your site that will depend upon other factors !
There are many but like WIX as it gives you a FREE DOMAIN NAME and has a lot of templates customisable and is easy to use IDEAS for blogs
I have used several website builders in the past (now use wordpress) but they are an excellent starting point if your champing at the bit to get on with your project and you can always change it to wordpress at a later date .
Very user friendly and if you are a beginner I would recommend and perhaps WIX they are pretty good and they do pay me a bit if you decide to use them !! As I said no one but a blockhead writes except for profit !!
Secondly is our wordpress option and you can also get a Free Domain through us and if you visit our site you can also get a FREE HOW TO DESIGN IN WORDPRESS BOOK if you don’t already know !
In reality there is little to choose between them in terms of results in the search engines
Once again there are many hosts for wordpress and we recommend one as we get paid to do so!!
Have used a couple of differing ones and
BLUEHOST with its Free Domain Name have a quick preview
Seems to be one of the best and has reasonable plans .
