Setting up a blog can be challenging if you have never set one up before. I remember when I first started setting up this blog. It took countless hours, sleepless nights and months of frustration. If I had to do it over again I would do things differently. Before getting started you must do some research. 

For example, I wanted to set up a personal blog on how to be a mom of a special needs child, have a balanced life and help my husband bring extra money into our home. I desired to share with other moms on how vitally important it is to be home raising their children.

I desired to share with other moms how important it is to be balanced  spiritually, emotionally, physically, and financially regardless of what goes on in our lives.

After deciding on your niche, the next step would be to come to a conclusion on how you are going to host your blog.

Decide if you should use a free blog and the company host it for you or If you should pay and have total control of your blog.

At first, I tried the free approach but was always afraid of getting a Google slap. Recently, I switched over to a paid blog because I did not like the idea of someone not liking what I said or did and then shutting my blog down.

There are several free places that you can use for your blog: blogger.com, blogspot.com, wordpress.com and livejournal.com just to name a few. If you would rather use a paid service than I would recommend wordpress.org or the done for you blogging system I use here

After deciding where you want to set up your blog,  go to the website and follow the directions on how to set up a blog. The free blog sites do not require you to download anything onto your computer.

You will pick a theme and then fill in the blanks. If you are going to use wordpress.org, you will need to decide on what company will you host your blog, presently I use.  After deciding on the hosting co. you will need to download the software onto your computer.
