How to Start a Food Blog
Starting a food blog nowadays can be easier and cheaper than you may think. You don’t need to be a computer genius or anything like that, everything is fairly simple and you can learn new things step by step while you build your blog.
The first decision you need to make is to choose between a free blog and a self hosted blog. I choose to have a self hosted blog from the beginning and I think this is the best choice I have made, but if you choose a free blog because you are not really sure that you want to spend money on your blog, don’t worry, you can always switch to a self hosted blog later on if your chosen domain is available.
The first difference between a free blog and a self hosted blog is that for a self hosted blog you need to buy your domain name, in fact your blog URL is going to be for example ‘www.domainname.com’. For a free blog your URL is a subdomain of the blogging platform you choose, so for example your URL could look something like this ‘www.domainname.blogger.com’. This is if you have chosen blogger as the platform to host your blog.
