After being convinced by a professional blogger, I decided to create my first Wordpress blog in a hosted site and in my own domain name. Of course, I have to buy a domain name for $9.10 a year (coupon code applied) from NameCheap.com, and sign up for website hosting at Hostgator.com for about $95 annually. I like the fact that with the web host plan I chose, I have unlimited space and unlimited number of domains I can use. I have in mind to monetize the blog in the coming months as soon as I build up enough content, and build more niche blogs all in the same web host service.
I was ecstatic when I started initially but I have difficulty in handling the programming part of the blog. I have no idea what CSS, RSS, etc. means, and then I realized I have more work to do studying about this whole WordPress blogging thing. I thought it's easy as blogging in Google's Blogger (the platform I'm familiar and comfortable with), but I have never anticipated I am going to face these challenges. My blog looks presentable so far and I am in the process of learning and studying more coding and designing.
