A Self-Hosted Blog in 8 Minutes by Jeff Goins

Sometimes you read a blog post, article or book that makes you think “I wish I had written that”. This happened to me recently when I read The Short Guide to Launching a Self-Hosted Blog in 8 Minutes or Less by Jeff Goins.

Jeff Goins Writer - How to Launch a Self-Hosted Blog in 8 Minutes or Less

Jeff is an avid writer, blogger and speaker. He can speak with authority on the value of having your own blog – to establish your own platform, reputation and loyal audience. This is what Jeff does every day.

In his blog post, The Short Guide to Launching a Self-Hosted Blog in 8 Minutes or Less, Jeff describes quickly and clearly why you need a blog if you want to be visible and available on the Internet.

Even more importantly, Jeff explains and demonstrates how you can start your own blog in less than 8 minutes. By means of a practical, short screencast, he shows you:

  • how to find a host for your blog
  • how to register a domain name for your blog
  • how to install WordPress (popular free blog software)
  • how to customize the look of your blog
  • how to publish your first blog post

Jeff’s article and screencast are so useful and to-the-point that I don’t want to rehash the content here. For inspiration, and to prove to you that starting a blog is really not difficult, I would rather direct you to The Short Guide to Launching a Self-Hosted Blog in 8 Minutes or Less.

However … this is where the real work starts! Once you have a blog, you still have to plan the layout and adjust some technical issues, and most importantly: write regular and inspiring blog posts. This is the only way to gather an audience and really experience the added value of a blog.
