How to Start a Blog, and How to Build a Blog Site are related questions and here we will discuss all steps involved in blog starting. to enhance the performance of a blog site. Here I recommend Bluehost web hosting for any blogger because it offers free SSL life for WordPress websites and good support too.
Here is the step-by-step process for the Bluehost WordPress blog:
1. Post and Domain
Bluehost can be an excellent WordPress blog hosting provider at the same time than most other hosting providers. I purchased a 3-year shared hosting plan and a one-year free domain that will be renewed after a year.
You can purchase the hosting you feel you deserve by choosing the program you want, you can buy by subscribing / signing in. The domain can be purchased from Bluehost or from any other provider. You can now sign in to Bluehost with the credentials they have sent to you. The screen will appear when you sign in and you can sign in to your WordPress to manage your blog.
There are many free WordPress themes available, I was using the Ocean WP theme for my WordPress blog. The theme is free and you can install all the required plugins in it.
Go to your domain name / wp-admin and login eg domain / wp-admin. When you sign in there will be a dashboard and go to the look and themes.
When you navigate to this location type the theme name in the search box and enter and activate.
3.SSL (Background of Secure Sockets)
SSL enables secure encrypted link between web server and browser. Bluehost uses free SSL for all sites via WordPress.You can use SSL for your WordPress blog to pay for login or you can contact Bluehost and request SSL to work.
Log in to Bluehost and Home> My Site> Manage Site
Go to security and enable SSL.
4.Mail Configuration and contact form
When you completed all above-discussed steps can make webmail for your domain
Go to email at Bluehost account> email> Add Email Account. You can add the email you want and provide an assignment and create an account.
Once you have created the email go to webmail and log in with the generated email address and password (used to sign in to your Bluehost account)

Bloggers place their Google ads on their blog to make money. Blog revenue is bloggers making money online and it is revenue that you need to create a Google AdSense account and submit your website for approval. Once your website is approved you can log in and create ad units and enter code to your blog, within a few hours it will start appearing on the blog. If anyone clicks on an ad posted on your blog you will get a few cents for it, which will look in your ad account.
