Hi Guys! It’s Greg from DearBlogger and I made this video because I know web hosting is confusing at first.. I thought I’d have to connect my toaster to the AC just to login and blog. If you care about your blog as much as I did, this step is a lot of pressure! So in this tutorial we’ll explain what a domain and hosting is (a domain is your website’s address and hosting is the plot of land where your website lives, like a real home) then walk you through exact steps to start a blog like famous bloggers have done, with self hosted WordPress. You’ll leave here confidently with your own unique and amazing blog you can build on each morning and some great discounts too. We’ve helped over 10,000 new bloggers create a blog and make the blogosphere a better place, so jump on in and get started today too!
