Where to start?
i'VE BEEN WANTING TO START MY VERY OWN BLOG JUST FOR MYSELF TO HAVE FOR PERSONAL REASONS FOR EXAMPLE WHEN i GET OLDER OR WRINKLY - HAHA i HAVE SOMETHING TO REFLECT BACK TO, AND NOT ONLY IN THAT BUT i SPREAD MY KNOWLEDGE TO OTHERS.
tHE HARDEST PART WAS COMING UP WITH A NAME OR BRAND THAT I WANTED TO GO WITH FOR THE BLOG. sO iT TOOK MONTHS AND MONTHS TO PREPARE AND RESEARCH BLOGGING. i LOVE TO WRITE, i WRITE IN A JOURNAL DAILY AND USUALLY AT NIGHT. sO WHY NOT BLOG WHAT i WRITE ABOUT!? i HAVE ONE THAT i STARTED WITH tRIUMPH fREERUNNING SO BE SURE TO TAKE A LOOK ON WHAT WE PRODUCE ON THERE. iF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST IN BLOGGING THEN THIS IS THE POST TO READ - i HOPE IT HELPS.
Starting off you want a domain name which is the part of a network address that identifies it as belonging to a particular domain. You see them all the time when you are surfing the world wide web. when you see something like www.beheadwear.com, www.triumphfreerunning.com, or www.mypeacelovelife.com those are domain names which allow you to go to the desired website (URL).
1. Register Your Domain Name That Has Never Been Registered.
This involves you coming up with a creative, original, and "you" type of brand. You're building something that's made up in your head so when making your blog, make it stick out from others, short and memorable.

You're still starting
2. rEEL IN A SMASHING DOMAIN
tHE BEST WAY i FEEL TO DESCRIBE THIS WOULD BE AN AUCTION. iF SOMEONE THOUGHT OF A DOMAIN AND REGISTERED IT AND LET IT GO, EVENTUALLY IT GOES BACK IN THE POOL TO BE REELED IN AGAIN. sOME GOOD PLACES TO GO CHECK THIS OPTION OUT IS NAMEJET.COM OR GODROPS.COM
after THINKING AND REGISTERING A DOMAIN YOU THEN WANT TO EITHER SELF-HOST OR USE A FREE ALTERNATIVE. before GOING TO DO THIS i ENCOURAGE YOU TO THINK ABOUT IT BECAUSE THIS IS THE BIGGEST DECISION YOU'LL MAKE - pAY OR FREE.
tHERE ARE BUTT LOADS OF FREE OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE LIKE WEEBLY, WORDPRESS, WIX AND EVEN TUMBLR! i'VE USED SOME OF THESE AND KNOW PEOPLE WHO USE OTHERS. aS MUCH AS FREE SOUNDS UNFORTUNATELY THERE ARE LIMITS!

3. You wont be able to get your own domain name
Plain and simple, right? - your domain name will be butt ugly.
Here are a few examples of what your blog could potentially look like:
Super ugly, right?
4. Limits, Limits, and limits
Free blogs wont allow you to fully take advantage of the provider, weebly for example wont allow you to use "HD Video", "Audio", "search Box", and other neat features.
Poopy right? But! It's Business.
Owning vs free
5. You don't own your blog
This may hurt you however its hosted on someone else's property and they can delete it if they want. It's been done in the past and it's still done today. On the other hand if you choose to self-host you are the owner! You can do as you wish to your blog or domain. You can name it anything you'd like:
I think you get the idea, right?
