Getting started with a blog can be much more straightforward than you might think. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be experienced in web design, HTML, photography, or writing, in order to have a successful blog. You just need to start with your niche or your passion, and make sure that you will have enough to say around the topic. At the end of the day, to be found online, content really is king.

 

Of course, you need to have a platform to be able to blog, which is where a website comes in handy. There are blogging platforms like WordPress that you can use, but they have restrictions on their terms of use, so that could be problematic, depending on what you’re planning to do with the blog. Having your own site means much more flexibility, and you’ll have control over it all, which can help your earning potential. When you’re starting out, though, having hundreds of dollars to spend on a web designer to build your site is likely to be out of the question. Which is why using a website builder like Wix could be a more affordable option.

 

WebsiteBuilderly have created an infographic talking just about this, and how you can still get a professional looking site when using a website builder, rather than hiring a designer.
