April 2019: How to Start a Blog From Scratch – A Comprehensive Guide

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past decade or so, you’ve probably noticed the sudden increase in blogging websites.

Regardless of the nature of your business, setting up a web presence is more important than ever before. And once you’ve got your website in place, you’ll need a blog to go with it – after all, blogging is perhaps one of the most powerful tools you can leverage to boost sales, attract new customers and build brand credibility with existing clients.

With all of this in mind, we’ve decided to put together a comprehensive yet simple-to-follow step by step guide to help you create your very own blog from scratch. In this article, you’ll find everything you need from purchasing a domain name to selecting a hosting provider and installing software to publishing your first blog post.

Let’s get started building your first blog!

5 Steps to Start a Blog

Let me start off by saying that you don’t need to be programming literate to follow this practical guide – in fact, you won’t have to write a single line of code. To those of you who shy away from the mere thought of coding (don’t worry; I’m no stranger in that community!) I say “Fear not, for this guide is with you.”

I’ll walk you through five simple steps to help you launch your blog:

  1. Choose a Blogging Platform
  2. Choose Suitable Hosting
  3. Set Up Your Domain Name and Hosting
  4. Customize Your Blog
  5. Add Useful Plugins

Now that we’ve gotten all of the preliminary details out of the ways, let’s jump right into the tutorial. You’ll have it up and running in the next 15 minutes – I kid you not!


Step 1

Choose a Blogging Platform

The first thing you’ll have to do is select a content management system (CMS) that will serve as the underlying platform for your blog. Now you’ve probably heard of a few of the major blogging platforms out there – WordPressBloggerJoomlaDrupal, etc.

WordPress All The Way

I’m a huge advocate of WordPress and I wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who wants to start their own blog. Here are a few simple reasons why:

  • It’s massive. As of the writing of this article, WordPress powers nearly 74.6 million websites.
  • It’s absolutely free. WordPress was essentially designed to be an open source project.
  • It’s secure and reliable. The dedicated team of developers behind WordPress, Automattic, is always updating the CMS to ensure maximum safety. If it’s safe enough for NASA, chances are it’s safe enough for you.
  • It’s scalable. Whether you want to launch a personal blog or are in hopes of a much bigger, CNN-sized site (yes, CNN runs on WordPress, too!), you can rest assured that it’ll operate without any glitches.

Those of you who are launching their first blog and probably don’t have a ton of potential traffic lined up are far better off opting for WordPress. Aside from the platform-specific benefits the CMS offers, it’ll save you a ton of time, effort, and money.

Hosting with WordPress is low-cost and installation takes 5 minutes. The best part, however, is and will always be that you don’t need to be exceptionally skilled in a web programming language (or even know the ABC’s of it) to launch and operate a successful WordPress-based blog.

If you’re convinced that WordPress really is the best CMS out there, let’s move on to the next section.


Step 2

Choose Suitable Hosting

Now that you’ve made the right decision in choosing WordPress as your CMS, there’s just one more choice to make – choosing a type of hosting provider.

The decision you make at this stage will have a colossal effect on the outcome of your blog. You can choose to fork out a couple of dollars every month for self-hosting or go for a free alternative instead. And although the latter sounds absolutely incredible, that’s not the direction you’ll want to head in.

Why You Should Avoid Free Blog Sites

With free blogging platforms (non-hosted platforms) the disadvantages always outnumber the advantages. Always. For starters, you get a terrible domain name – something like ‘myblog.freebloggingplatform.com’. Your blog’s domain name has a significant impact on SEO and social media marketing so if you want your blog to really take off and be discoverable then you’ll want to go with a self-hosting.

A .com extension is the standard norm and nearly 75% of all websites have it. I’m not saying it’s impossible to attract millions of unique monthly page views with a .freebloggingplatform.com extension but how many successful bloggers (or any successful site for that matter) do you know by that domain name extension?

“Brand is the sum total of how someone perceives a particular organization.”

You want a web address that rolls off the tongue easily. One that people will remember. One that tactfully illustrates your brand and communicates what your blog is all about in a concise yet relevant set of characters.

Disadvantages of Non-Hosted Blogging Platforms

  • URL Problem. Your blog’s URL will be long, unappealing, and unprofessional.
  • No Real Ownership. Since you’re not paying for hosting, your blog won’t actually be your blog – it’s hosted on someone else’s web property. This means that they can delete it whenever they want.
  • Other Restrictions. Free blogging platforms don’t let you do all the cool stuff like monetize your blog, use themes, or install plugins. Worst of all, your site’s space on the server is limited which means you can’t even upload all of the images and videos you were hoping would attract traffic.

These are factors that most of us simply can’t afford to compromise on. They are essential to the timely success of our blog and we’re willing to spend a few bucks for it.

Luckily enough for you, I’ve worked out the most optimal and cost-efficient solution after carefully analyzing the hosting industry. (It’s a difficult and confusing world to navigate through.) Long story short: Bluehost is the winner.

Why Bluehost Is Best

Bluehost offers everything from shared hosting to optimized hosting for WordPress at a reasonable price. Being a first-time webmaster, it’s best to go for shared hosting. The rest of them are advanced hosting services and more suitable for bigger blogs. You won’t need the kind of functionality they offer right away and when you feel like you do, you can always upgrade to another hosting plan.

Bluehost’s Shared Hosting plan is an ideal candidate for several reasons:

  1. WordPress users get a special discount price at $3.49/month.
  2. You’ll get a free domain name.
  3. 1-click WordPress install.
  4. 24/7 support.
  5. 30-day money back guarantee.

It stands to reason that WordPress and Bluehost go hand in hand — the best CMS paired with an affordable and reliable hosting provider. In the next section, we’ll walk you through a simple procedure to set up your domain name and hosting service with Bluehost.


Step 3

Set Up Your Domain Name and Hosting

Click here to visit the Bluehost homepage to begin setting up your first blog. We'll receive a commission if you decided to purchase through these links.

1. On the Bluehost homepage, you’ll find products in the menu bar. Hover over it and click on shared hosting.

Bluehost's products menu.

Select shared hosting from the products menu.

2. You will be redirected to a page that gives you a brief overview of Bluehost’s shared hosting plan. Click on the green get started now button to proceed with the setup.

Get started now button.

Get started with shared hosting.

3. Select your preferred shared hosting plan. We recommend you go with the basic plan for now.

Bluehost's pricing table.

Select the basic shared hosting plan.

4. The next page prompts you to select a domain name and domain name extension for your blog — the fun (sometimes frustrating) part of the whole experience. Click next once you’re done.

Domain name.

Enter a domain name.

5. Once you select a domain name that you like and is available, you’ll see a verification message on the next page notifying you that the domain is available and you can advance to the next step.

6. On the same page, you’ll see an account information form that requires you to fill out your personal details.

Bluehost form.

Fill in your account information.

7. Once you’ve filled out your account information details, you’ll be prompted to select/deselect options for your package in the package information form.

Package information form.

Tick all the features you’d like to opt for.

Let’s quickly review the options you can select to enhance the functionality and security of your brand new blogging site:

  • Constant Contact. Constant Contact is one of the best tools to connect with your audience without hassle. It allows you to create, send, and track emails and newsletters to your readership. This isn’t mandatory, but if you think that you’ll be sending emails to your subscribers regularly then go for it!
  • Domain Privacy Protection. A domain name’s whois information is available for anyone to acquire on the Internet. Most of the time, marketing companies leverage this information and send a ton of unwanted solicitations your way. By selecting this option, the only visible information will be Bluehost thus preventing your whois information from being publicly available.
  • Site Backup Pro. This feature takes automatic backups of your blog regularly. I would strongly recommend that you leave this box ticked. Choosing to opt out would mean that you’d have to take manual backups using a plugin.
  • Search Engine Jumpstart. Since you’re just starting out with your blog, you can leave this box un-ticked. There’s no reason to start worrying about search engines just yet.
  • SiteLock Security — Find. This feature isn’t compulsory but it adds an additional layer of security to your blogging site. Check out the features it offers to determine if it’s right for you.

Leaving the default options as they are is perfectly fine, too.

8. The billing information form requires you to fill in your credit card number to complete the transaction.

  1. Bluehost accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
  2. Clicking on the More payment options link enables you to pay through your PayPal account.

Billing information form.

Enter your credit card information to complete the transaction.

  1. Once you’ve filled in your billing information, tick I confirm I have read and agree to the Terms of Service… box and click the submit button.

Submit button to complete transaction.

Click the submit button once you’ve filled out the forms.

By now your hosting service and domain name are paid for. In the following steps, we’ll login to the Bluehost cPanel and use its 1-click WordPress install feature to install the CMS to our blog site.

9. Using the login details emailed to you by Bluehost, sign in to the Bluehost cPanel.

10. Under the website section on the homepage, click the Install WordPress button.

Bluehost's cPanel.

1-click WordPress install in Bluehost’s cPanel.

11. You will be redirected to a new page with information about WordPress. Click the green Install button to continue with the installation.

Green install button to complete WordPress installation.

Click Install to proceed.

12. On the next screen, select your newly registered domain name (it should be selected by default) to let the system know which directory you’d like to install WordPress to. Click Check Domain once you’re done.

Selecting installation folder.

Select your blog’s domain name from the drop-down menu.

13. All that’s left is to enter your site’s name, your admin username, and a password in the next screen and you’re good to go! Click Install Now after filling out the form.

  • Registered a domain name.

  • Installed WordPress to your blog.

14. Login to your blog site by clicking on the Admin URL that looks something like http://myblogname.com/wp-admin.

WordPress Dashboard.

Your WordPress Dashboard should look something like this.


Step 4

Customize Your Blog

In this section, I’ll introduce you to the WordPress Dashboard and help you install a theme to increase your blog’s visual appeal.

An Introduction to the WordPress Dashboard

The WordPress Dashboard can be quite overwhelming for first-time users but I promise you’ll get used to it sooner than you think. For the purpose of this post, I’ll cover the following items:

  • Activating a Theme
  • Writing Your First Post
  • Exploring the Media Library
  • Adding a User

Sounds good? Let’s get started.

Activating a Theme

We’ll start out by installing and activating a WordPress theme to our blog. By default, WordPress has its default theme activated (Twenty Sixteen as of this writing). We’re going to change the default theme to a more sophisticated and contemporary theme designed specifically for blogging sites. Enter Activello.

Activello is a simple, multipurpose blog theme for WordPress designed by our exceptionally talented team. It’s got all the right features to get you started with a professional and modern-looking blog. Best of all it’s free! You can download it from here.

Install Activello theme

Upload the theme’s .zip file and click Install Now.

  1. From your WordPress Dashboard, hover over the Appearance menu item and click on Themes in the sub-menu. (Appearance > Themes)
  2. Once you’re at the Themes window, click the Add New button at the top
  3. Click the Upload Theme button and upload the theme’s .zip file.
  4. Once it’s uploaded, click Install Now.
  5. You will be redirected to a screen that notifies you of the status of the installation. Click the Activate link once the theme is successfully installed.

You can leave it be or tweak it if you’d like to change a design aspect by navigating to Appearance > Customize. If you’re thinking of setting up a niche-specific blog then be sure to check out our complete collection of WordPress themes.

Writing Your First Post

As a blogger, you’ll be writing a ton of posts so it’s important that you pay attention to this section to get the basics down.

Adding a post.

Post-ception!

  1. Hover over the Posts menu item and click Add New. (Posts > Add New)
  2. You’ll be redirected to the Add New Post screen which looks something like this:
  3. Add a suitable title in the text box that says Enter title here.
  4. In the big text editor below, add your post’s content. You’ll find that there’s a handy dandy toolbar embedded inside to help you format your post.
  5. Click the Publish button once you’re done.

Voila! The post is published to your blog and everyone can see it now. How easy was that?

Exploring the Media Library

The WordPress Media Library is a powerful tool that you can leverage to handle practically all of your media management. It stores all media files (images, videos, audio, and documents) that you upload to your WordPress blog regardless of whether it’s published or not.

WordPress Media Library.

The powerful Media Library.

  1. Click the Media menu item from the WordPress Dashboard.
  2. You will be redirected to the Media Library screen from where you can manage all of your media files.
  3. Click the Add New button at the top of the screen.
  4. Select a media item from your drive and upload it.
  5. The media item will be added to your Media Library and you can embed it in posts and pages now.

The Media Library also lets you edit images from within WordPress — cropping, resizing, scaling – you name it. A blog post isn’t complete without a few relevant images to go with it!

Adding a User

Seeing that you’re a dedicated blogger and are in high hopes of taking your blogging site to better frontiers (after all, you have made it this far down the post), there will come a time when you’ll need some outside help or in other words, you’ll want to outsource some of your work.

Whether it’s to manage the technical side of your website or to add a few regular authors to your team, the best way to go about it is to add user accounts. WordPress enables admins to add users to their site which allows them restricted access to the blog’s back end (depending upon the user’s role).

Add New User form.

Fill out the Add New User form and select a user role.

  1. On the WordPress Dashboard, hover over Users and click Add New. (Users > Add New)
  2. The Add New User screen will appear and you will be prompted to add some personal details of the user you intend to add.
  3. Once you’ve filled out the details, select a user role from the drop-down menu e.g. Admin, Author, Editor, etc.
  4. Click Add New User.

Your new user will be added to your site and they’ll receive an automated email containing their login information.


Step 5

Add Useful Plugins

Want to add a new feature to your blog? There’s a plugin for that! Plugins are ways to extend and add to the functionality that already exists in WordPress.

Plugins can be thought of as tiny apps that enhance your blog’s functionality. WordPress has a ton of plugins, both free and premium, for you to select from. In fact, there’s a whole official WordPress Repository full of freebies that you should definitely check out.

How to Add Plugins

Adding plugins to your WordPress blog is quite simple.

Add New Plugin screen.

Adding plugins to enhance functionality.

  1. Navigate to the WordPress Dashboard, hover over the Plugins menu item and click Add New. (Plugins > Add New)
  2. On the Add Plugins screen, you’ll find that you can upload plugins or search for free plugins using the search box located in the top-right corner of the screen.
  3. Once you’ve selected a plugin to install, click the Install Now button.
  4. Activate the plugin after it’s been installed.

Installing plugins is quite unchallenging and after tinkering with their settings you can start using them immediately.

A Word to the Wise

Take it from a plugin hoarder, it’s very easy to become addicted to installing and storing plugins to your blog site. I mean they’re so cool and there’s so many of them and they do so many cool things.

One thing you need to remember is that you don’t have unlimited space on your server. Now 50 GB is more than enough to get your blog off the ground but it’s not enough for you to store hundreds of activated plugins on. I strongly suggest that you evaluate your blog’s needs and make a list of the most essential plugins it requires to deliver value to your readership.

Instead of getting labeled as a plugin hoarder like me, thoroughly assess your desire every time you get the itch to install a new plugin. Believe me, it’ll save you a ton of space and your blog won’t slow down.

Some Essential Plugins

Having said all of that, there are some plugins that you should install without question.

  • A contact form plugin — Contact Form 7 and Gravity Forms both work great.
  • A caching plugin — I’d recommend W3 Total Cache; it’s blazing fast!
  • An SEO plugin — Yoast SEO is hands down the best SEO plugin. There really is no competition.
  • Kiwi Social Sharing WordPress Plugin — Kiwi gives you tons of options and it’s super easy to use.
  • The Jetpack plugin — you can activate / deactivate its modules as per your requirement.

Without a doubt, these plugins are essential to running a successful blog and you can install most of them free of charge. Fore more useful pluguins you can read our essential WordPress plugin guide.

Wrapping It Up

There’s definitely a lot more to blogging than what this guide covers. Hopefully, we’ve provided you with enough information to get started with setting up your very own WordPress blog from scratch. We encourage you to explore WordPress further and leverage the powerful content management system to its full potential.

July 2018: Failed To Enumerate Objects In The Container, Access Is Denied

Generally in Windows, permissions helps us to keep content private or public. Thus it is very easy for us that we assign such permissions to our files and folders, such that others may invoke or not, according to the requirement. The permissions for folders/files can be changed with right click on a folders/files and selecting Properties. From here by switching to Security tab, we can configure the permissions.

Failed to enumerate objects in the container

However, sometimes due to clash of permissions or incorrect settings, you may not able to changes permissions and face error while doing so. In such scenarios, the following error is most common:

Failed to enumerate objects in the container, Access is denied.

You’re more likely to face this error when you’re not the owner of the content, whose permissions you’re changing about. Thus in such cases, following are the exact steps you should take to avoid the error:

1. Firstly, right click over the folder/file whose permissions you’ve to change. Select Properties.

Now in the Advanced Security Settings, you must check Replace owner on subcontainers and objects and Replace all child object permissions entries with inheritable permission entries from this object. Click Apply followed by OK.
