Start A Kit Blog

Feeling lost as you start a new blog and/or website? Get started FAST with a Kit Blog!

So You Want To Start A Blog and/or Website…

But you keep getting stuck.

“I want to start a blog but have no idea where to start.”

“WordPress is just too complicated.”

“There is so much information out there…I feel completely lost.”

“I’m not techy.”

HERE’S THE TRUTH:

There is a learning curve. We are NOT going to tell you differently. Our goal is to make that process as fast as possible so you can focus on what truly matters – your content.

You need to learn how to:

  • purchase a domain
  • set-up hosting
  • learn online jargon
  • master how to use WordPress 
  • learn your page builder (Elementor, Gutenberg, etc)
  • figure out which plugins you need
  • write amazing content
  • cover yourself legally
  • optimize your site for speed
  • GDPR and CCPA compliance
  • (and sooo much more)

And then there’s everything for AFTER you launch:

  • learn Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • monetize your site/blog
  • email marketing (and signing up with an Email Servicer Provider (ESP))
  • create and maintain a blog (if applicable)
  • learn social media outlets
  • understand Google Analytics

And a million-and-one other things you may not realize.

IS THIS YOU RIGHT ABOUT NOW?!

There are so many things you need to learn…don’t let creating a website stop you.

We can’t shield you entirely from the learning curve. 

But what we CAN help with is getting you off on the right foot and save you time, effort, and headaches (some of them). 

But let me tell you a secret:

All you need to do is launch your site. Everything else will take time to learn and master.

What Is A Kit Blog?

A Kit Blog is a website that:

  • We set-up for you on your brand new WordPress site to help you get over the learning curve faster
  • You customize your site the way you want it, and focus on what truly matters: CONTENT!

Your site comes complete with the Astra Pro theme or Kadence Pro with TONS of Starter Templates to choose from to kickstart your site.

We will install all the plugins you need (free) when you first start out (security, optimizations, SEO, and more). 

Plus, take the Master Your Kit Blog course to take you step-by-step through your customizations!

Considerations Before Starting A Blog or Website

It sounds so fun to just jump right in with a brand new website.

BUT, before you do anything else do your research!

You want to ensure that what you create will be something you will want to work on for years to come. You need to define your audience/niche and, if you are a blogger looking to make money, choose a niche (topic) that isn’t too saturated and/or has the potential to bring in profit.

Here is a FREE Profitable Blogging Roadmap course from Tracie Fobes to help you get started on your journey.

Done your research? Hurray!

In order to get started with a Kit Blog, there are 3 things to get in place:

  1. Purchase a Domain (we recommend NameCheap – FREE domain privacy!)
  2. Sign up for Hosting (see our recommendations)
  3. Install WordPress at your Host (Google instructions from your host)

That’s it! We’ll take it from there.

How To Choose Your Page Builder

There are many choices for Astra Starter Templates. So how do you choose which is the right one for you?

Our personally preference is using the Gutenberg page builder (native to WordPress). While we love Elementor, it’s harder to optimize for site speed.
