I have been actively blogging since 2007, and in the process, I have learned a lot about blogging. This includes selecting a domain name, selecting a good web host, setting up a website, and everything else that goes with maintaining a blog or website.
TheWPHowToBlog.com is my attempt to guide you about blogging and WordPress so that you can avoid the mistakes I have made in the past and can have a successful blog of your own as quickly as possible. This is also a good opportunity for me to learn more about blogging and WordPress with you.
What can you expect from this blog?
I would of course be addressing basic “how to blog” questions, and would describe in detail how to achieve various things in WordPress. I would also be talking about different WordPress plugins, and how you can use them to make your blog better.
I also plan to talk about strategies to increase traffic to your blog, and ways to make money online. I have tried many traffic building and monetization strategies on the various blogs that I own – both successfully and unsuccessfully. So I am sure you would gain a thing or two from my experiences.
Apart from this, I would be talking about some of the other blogs that I own and maintain (details below). I would give you an account of what I am doing with those blogs, and would also share the income & traffic details of each of those blogs. The initial plan is to do this on a monthly basis.
The posts related to this would be under the “My Blogs’ Stats” category.
The Blogs I Would Be Talking About
Following is a list of my other blogs – for more details, please read the introductory post “My Other Blogs – The Companions in Our Journey“.
Change in Location of This Blog
This blog was originally located at the URL www.thewordpresshowtoblog.com. I later changed it to www.thewphowtoblog.com, because:
- The new URL is shorter and easier to remember
- The inclusion of “WordPress” in the URL infringed on the trademark, which I had not realized earlier
