ARTICLE UPDATED ON 28/04/2019
When I first came online I knew absolutely nothing about building websites or blogging in general ( and when I say nothing I mean NOTHING! ).
I’d heard about these professional bloggers earning $$$$’s a day and I wanted a piece of it!
So I set out by myself and started building up my very own website with a view to taking the internet world by storm…
I think it was ‘live’ online for about a fortnight before I took it down in embarrassment!!!
I struggled with it and you will too – fact of life I’m afraid!
So, in this article I will show you how to build a quick website for free within a few mouse clicks. I’ll also show you where you can find FREE tutorials on making your website successful.
How to Build a WordPress Website For Beginners
After reading the title of this article you’d be forgiven for thinking it’s going to be a bit on the long side – well it won’t!
That’s the beauty of the information I am sharing with you today – it’s simple, it’s newbie friendly and it’s FREE!
You don’t have to be educated and you don’t need an arsenal of tools. In fact you’ll only need the following:
- Some sort of computer ( go figure! )
- Access to the internet ( a coffee shop or McDonald’s will do! )
- The ability to read
That’s it folks – that’s all you are going to need to make this work and take on the information superhighway!
Now lets get started…
Looking to Learn
So, we are all now fully aware that my first blog was a complete and utter joke – for the sake of my pride, let’s move on and never mention it again!
It became VERY apparent to me that I needed some sort of guidance to get my head around building up a decent blog.
I searched around a bit and found numerous online tutorials but they seemed to be missing something vital. Well, they seemed to be missing the ability to actually teach me something useful!
I don’t have the longest of attention spans and I’ll be honest here – I was losing faith fast…
Then I stumbled upon it!!!!
By ‘it’ I’m referring to the Wealthy Affiliate community – the safe haven that provided me with all the tools and tutorials needed to build up my very own dynamic website!
Now I’m not saying I was sold straight away because I wasn’t – the name ‘Wealthy Affiliate’ sounded a little bit shady to me and I wasn’t exactly rolling in the money at the time ( I couldn’t afford to be ripped off! ).
But the dudes that owned this community were actually offering a FREE starter membership that included two FREE websites!
Surely this was some sort of typo?
Nope – it was all legit!
To cut a long story short, I was provided with a free education and all the tools needed to build a dynamic looking blog and I was up and running within 24 hours!
All this and I didn’t have to pay a penny!
Fast Forward Several Years…
Well, that was then and this is now – thanks to the education and support offered by the Wealthy Affiliate community I now run five websites ( including this one! ) and I work online full time.
I’m sitting here writing this article at a makeshift desk in my nine year old son’s bedroom – it’s essentially my office for the day!
I generally walk around the house with my laptop in hand and find a room that’s quiet. I sit down, flip open the lid and start typing – I have no real office as such!
Now if I can do this anyone can – I’m not what you’d call the sharpest tool in the box 🙂
All you need is a little bit of self belief and the willingness to learn – the rest will take care of itself.
So what’s the next step?
Well, remember those two FREE websites I promised you? Why don’t you pick a name for one and enter it below…
