In this guide,I'm going to share with you a simple step-by-step method for how to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog from start to finish.

Right now,if you commit to 威廉希尔有限公司stawilliamhill亚洲版rting a blog and maintaining it,the potential benefits and opportunities that can come as a result of williamhill亚洲版blogging are endless.

Get yourself a cup of coffee (at least I'm going to have one) and let's continue…

How to 威廉希尔有限公司williamhill亚洲版start a blog
You might need some coffee,but follow these steps,and you'll soon have your very own williamhill亚洲版blog!!

In 2008,a few weeks after graduating from University,I traveled to South America.

Armed with my point-and-shoot digital camera (I think it was a 3.2 megapixel),I was ready to travel and eat,and take as many photos as I could.

After a few months of traveling,mostly in Argentina and Chile,I returned to the US for 威廉希尔网站about a month to attend the wedding of my sister.

During that time,I thought:

"What will I do with all these photos… will they just sit on my computer forever?""

While pondering this,and while surfing the internet,I decided to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog.

I could williamhill亚洲版blog as a way to keep my family and friends updated 威廉希尔网站about where I was and what I was eating,and to just remember the things I did for myself – like a personal (but public) journal,all in one.

I had zero experience of how to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog.

The great news is:

You don't need to be a designer or coder to 威廉希尔有限公司start ywilliamhill亚洲版our own blog.

And so,having little clue what I was doing,I decided to figure it out.

I registeredwww.bjzbp.com,,and decided I was going to 威廉希尔有限williamhill亚洲版公司start blogging as I traveled.

Just after 威廉希尔有限公司starting mwilliamhill亚洲版y first blog,I bought a one-way plane ticket to Asia (Bangkok to be more specific),this time,with no plans to return to the US anytime soon.

A lot has changed since the beginning of 2009,when I first 威廉希尔有限公司started www.bjzbp.com.

I've learned many things… not just 威廉希尔网站williamhill亚洲版about blogging,travel,and food (though I've learned loads of both),I've also learned 威廉希尔网站about writing,internet marketing,social media,psychology,freelancing,website maintenance and design,and more.

威廉希尔有限公司Starting my williamhill亚洲版initial blog,and becoming a williamhill亚洲版blogger has easily been one of the most rewarding things I've ever done (and it can be for you too).

NOTE: Before we proceed,I just want to let you know that you DON'T need to be a computer engineer or a coder to 威廉希尔有限公司williamhill亚洲版start a blog.I consider myself an ordinary guy who just loves to travel and eat,and I figured out how to make a williamhill亚洲版blog,andI'm 100% positive you can do it too.

How to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog

Although I write 威廉希尔网站about food,one of the questions I get asked frequently is:

"Mark,how can I 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog or a food blog?""

So I thought,I would just type up everything I've learned 威廉希尔网站williamhill亚洲版about blogging,and try to break it down into a simple 5 step process,so you can easily 威廉希尔有限公司williamhill亚洲版start a blog too.

But before we jump into it,I'm just going to quickly go over what a williamhill亚洲版blog is,and how it functions.

A williamhill亚洲版blog,or a wewilliamhill亚洲版blog,is basically a website that's updated with posts.

It can really look like any other website,have a home-page,and a resource page,and in fact many websites you probably read are williamhill亚洲版blogs (or they are set up like blogs),even if you didn't know it.

Here's a brief overview of what we're going to be covering in this 5 step how to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog process (and you can go to each section below for much more in-depth coverage,and details on how to complete each step):

  1. Domain– A domain is your own unique url,mine iswww.bjzbp.com.Yours could beyourwilliamhill亚洲版blog.com.
  2. Host– A host is a server that stores your files,so when someone typesyourwilliamhill亚洲版blog.cominto a browser (like Google Chrome or FireFox),your williamhill亚洲版blog will show up on their computer screen or mobile device.威廉希尔有限公司Starting out,,I recommend Bluehostwhich I used in the video to createmarkwiens.me.
  3. WordPress– WordPress is an open source platform for building williamhill亚洲版blogs and websites,and archiving all the content.
  4. Design– A design is the face of your williamhill亚洲版blog,how it looks.
  5. 威廉希尔有限williamhill亚洲版公司Start blogging– One of of the biggest aspects 威廉希尔网站威廉希尔有限公司abouwilliamhill亚洲版t starting to blog is simply blogging.What I love 威廉希尔网站williamhill亚洲版about blogging is that it's not just about writing,but instead you get to mix in words and photos and videos,and be creative – however you want.

I would encourage you to first watch the video below,where I will walk you through the steps of how to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog,but you can also scroll down for all the details and information:

First,watch the video below:

(If you can't see the video,,watch it here)

Now that you've watched the video,let's begin with the 5 steps we talked 威廉希尔网站about.

This post is a little long because I really want you to understand what a williamhill亚洲版blog is,and what makes a williamhill亚洲版blog function.However,it's really very simple to create your first website,and it should take just 10 – 30 minutes.The hardest part is thinking 威廉希尔网站about what domain you want to choose.

Step #1: Register Your Domain

What is a domain??

Your domain is the URL of your website,likefood.comormarkwiens.me.

Why can't you just use a free williamhill亚洲版blog,likewilliamhill亚洲版blogspot.yourblog.comorwordpress.yourwilliamhill亚洲版blog.com??

That's a great question,and you could.

However,the reason it's much better in my opinion to register your own domain and host it,is because you then own your content.If you williamhill亚洲版blog on a blogspot,your content is owned,and can be controlled by williamhill亚洲版blogspot.

Having your own domain (yourwilliamhill亚洲版blog.com),you're able to control your content,deal with it how you like,and do things like put up advertising,orwilliamhill网站 .It just gives you a lot more freedom,plus it looks much better.

Also,it can be a real pain to begin with a williamhill亚洲版blogspot or other blog provider,then down the road,switch to your own domain.

If you're serious 威廉希尔网站williamhill亚洲版about blogging,don't mess around,just invest in your own unique domain now.

Note: If you plan to sign up for hosting,,like with Bluehost,which I'll cover in step #2 below,you can often get a free domain,when you sign up for hosting – so if you plan to sign up for hosting,you could 威廉希尔有限公司start at Step #2.

Where do I register my domain??

There are many sites that register domains,but here are two reputable sources:

How much does a domain cost??

Price:威廉希尔网站About $10 – $13 per year,a small investment,and really worth it.

hosting a williamhill亚洲版blog
If you're 威廉希尔有限公司stawilliamhill亚洲版rting a blog,Bluehost is a great host

Step #2: Get Hosting (Server)

What is hosting??

A website or williamhill亚洲版blog are a bunch of files,stored on a server (basically a computer that's on all the time),that can be accessed from a browser (like Firefox or Chrome).

A host is the computer (a dedicated computer called a server) where your williamhill亚洲版blog files are stored,and without it,no one would be able to access your williamhill亚洲版blog / website.

Hosting is kind of like renting an apartment or an office,it's the place where you store your stuff and 威廉希尔有限公司start buildiwilliamhill亚洲版ng your blog.

So as you can imagine,,your host is very important.

Everything you work on and write 威廉希尔网站about will be stored on your host.If your host has a record of being out of service (that's called downtime),or not very tight with security,that's not a good thing.

You wouldn't want your apartment to get broken into,would you?Same goes for your travel williamhill亚洲版blog.

That being said,there are many great hosts to choose from,and they can be very affordable – just a few dollars per month.

Over the course of running my travel and food williamhill亚洲版blogs,I've changed hosts a number of times. I 威廉希尔有限公司started off with a host I wasn't too happy with – they just didn't have great customer service and didn't handle my website traffic well,and the security of my site wasn't good enough either – I had a number viruses and malware scares (it's not a fun experience when you're nurturing your own williamhill亚洲版blog).

I'm now with a host I'm extremely happy with called Web Synthesis,though I wouldn't recommend it if you're just 威廉希尔有限公司stawilliamhill亚洲版rting a blog,because it's quite expensive,and there's no need for it from the beginning.

A few different types of hosting:

Hosting companies I recommend:

Bluehost(威廉希尔有限公司starts at $3.49 per month) – Bluehost is one of the best options for hosting – they provide an easy to use interface,one-click install of WordPress (which we'll be setting up in Step #3),good security,and customer service.On top of that,for the quality of their hosting,it's hard to beat their prices.I have a hosting account with Bluehost,and so far I've been extremely happy with them,and I would strongly recommend them if you are 威廉希尔有限公司stawilliamhill亚洲版rting a blog.

Web Synthesis(威廉希尔有限公司starts at $47 per month) – I now use Web Synthesis to host both of my mwilliamhill亚洲版ain two blogs.It's a premium host,that caters directly to sites using Wordpress,and I have VPS hosting.I pay $97 per month to host my sites on Web Synthesis,and though that's expensive,for where my sites are at in terms of traffic,and the goals I have for my williamhill亚洲版blogging,I'm very happy with their hosting.

Step #3: Install WordPress

What is WordPress??

WordPress is free piece of web software that can be used as a williamhill亚洲版blogging platform and a content management system (in simpler terms,it's the program your williamhill亚洲版blog operates on).

According to their website,,more than 60 million williamhill亚洲版blogsaround the world operate on Wordpress,and in my opinion it's the williamhill亚洲版blogging platform standard.

Thousands of websites you've probably used,likeThe New York TimesandFood Gawker,use WordPress to power their websites.

Just so you don't get confused,there are two WordPress websites:

Butif you're reading this guide on how to create a travel williamhill亚洲版blog,I'm sure,at least I hope you're ready to invest to use your own domain and host.

What I explained above is just for you to know (and I think it's important to learn),but you actually don't even need to go to wordpress.org,you can install the WordPress.org software,and have it show up on your domain,directly from your hosting account.

Installing WordPress on your domain

Once you have your domain and your hosting account ready,you will be able to login to your hosting account.Often it's called thedashboard,orpanel,or something like that.

Almost any hosting service you choose,will offer what they call an auto,or one-click install of WordPress.

This means that all you have to do is find it in your dashboard,and choose the"click to install WordPress"button.It usually takes just a few minutes or so to install all the WordPress files.

I'll cover the information in detail forBluehost,since I have an account with them,but the steps should be relatively similar if you choose a different host,and the host you choose will have specific information 威廉希尔网站about how to install WordPress.

Anyway,basically just click on the domain you want,then click on install WordPress,and wait until the install completes.

Your williamhill亚洲版blog is now live to the world. So much potential is already at your fingertips.

Using the default username and password,login to your new williamhill亚洲版blog,and you're ready to 威廉希尔有限公司start installing plugins and ready to start writing.

Wordpress plugins
Install plugins

Install Plugins

Along with installing WordPress,you'll need to install a few plugins.

Plugins are little extra snippets of software (code) that will give you more options – from making your website function better to making it look better.

There are a ridiculous amount of plugins available,but here are a few I think are necessary,and I use them:

I've linked to all these plugins,but actually the easiest way to upload them to your travel williamhill亚洲版blog is by doing this: Go to your WordPress dashboard > Plugins > Add New > Search for it > Install Now > Activate.

You now have now 威廉希尔有限公司started a perfectly funcwilliamhill亚洲版tioning blog.

williamhill亚洲版blog design
Customize and improve the design of your williamhill亚洲版blog

Step #4: Improve Your Design

While publishing posts is the most important part of williamhill亚洲版blogging,I think design is also huge.

According to Neil Patel,on the internet today people have an average attention spanshorter than a goldfish,and almost everyone,myself included,really do judge a williamhill亚洲版blog by its cover,without thinking 威廉希尔网站about it.

If you see a williamhill亚洲版blog or website that looks like it was created in 1998,no matter how good the content is,I can tell you right now,you and I both are probably going to click away in a couple seconds.

Also,I remember for myself,when I had an old and tacky design that I personally wasn't happy 威廉希尔网站about,I wasn't as inspired to write and publish articles.Why would I want to work so hard on a post,only to have it look tacky and old??

I'm not saying you need a perfect website design.

In fact,if you worry too much 威廉希尔网站about design,you might never be fully satisfied.Instead,just make sure your williamhill亚洲版blog is modern and has a design you're happy with.

The wonderful news is,youdon'tneed to be to a professional designer to make your williamhill亚洲版blog look fantastic.

I have almost zero design skills,and I was still able to create both www.bjzbp.com and eatingthaifood.com on my own.

Here's how: WordPress themes

What is a WordPress theme??

You have a domain,yourwilliamhill亚洲版blog.com,you have hosting,you have installed WordPress,now you need a theme.

A WordPress theme is like the body skin of your williamhill亚洲版blog,it is the visual aspect of your williamhill亚洲版blog.AsStudiopress* puts it,it's the body of your car.

When you install WordPress,you are automatically given a default theme,but by changing the theme,you can make your williamhill亚洲版blog function and look much better.

You have a couple choices:

Free Themes

There are loads of free themes available,and you can browse them all on theWordPress site.

Some are better than others,however,you can't judge a theme based just upon looks because themes also handle other aspects of your williamhill亚洲版blog behind the scenes – like security of your site,how well it's optimized in searches,and how easy it is to customize.

You may be able to find a free theme that will work well for you.

However,if you want to take your williamhill亚洲版blog to the next level,it's a good idea to invest in a premium theme – for looks and function.

Studiopress
I use Genesis with Studiopress

Premium Themes (range in cost from $30 – $100 or so)

A premium WordPress theme is usually (not always) better than a free theme because you have to pay for it – this often translates to better written code and better functionality.

With a premium theme you will have better website security,current updates,客户服务,better optimization,and typically an easier to work with interface.

Since I 威廉希尔有限公司started awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog,I've used quite a few different themes,from free to premium.

I'm now using theGenesis Framework with Studiopress,owned and operated by Copywilliamhill亚洲版blogger,and I'm very happy with it.

Within Studiopress there arechild themes.These extra themes that give your website an even more custom look.

How to install your WordPress theme

Once you've decided on a theme,you can then download it to your computer,and it should be a file liketheme.zip.

Next,go to your williamhill亚洲版blog dashboard – you can get there by going to yourblog.com/wp-login.php and typing in your username and password.

To install your new theme,go to Appearance > Themes > Add New > Upload Theme > Find your theme file > Install Now > Activate.

Your new theme should be live on your site once you hit refresh.

We won't get into further customizing,but you can then proceed to easily add your logo,change the colors,your background,etc.

I love to williamhill亚洲版blog 威廉希尔网站about delicious things,like jumbo freshwater prawns!!

Step #5: 威廉希尔有限williamhill亚洲版公司Start Blogging (& Don't Stop)

Now that we've learned how to 威廉希尔有限公司start awilliamhill亚洲版 travel blog,it's time to 威廉希尔有限williamhill亚洲版公司start blogging.

This might seem like an obvious step,but it's not.

I've witnessed far too many people follow steps 1 – 4,and 威廉希尔有限公司swilliamhill亚洲版tart to blog,but then give up far too soon,before seeing any results.

williamhill亚洲版Blogging is not easy.

It takes effort,passion,and it can be very time consuming.That's why williamhill亚洲版blogging works best when you cover a topic you love.

For me,it's food,travel,and culture.

Over the years I've attempted to 威廉希尔有限公司start a number owilliamhill亚洲版f other blogs,威廉希尔网站about things I wasn't passionate about,and I failed,just because I ran out of will power and ideas and it didn't take long before I burned out.

Instead of williamhill亚洲版blogging 威廉希尔网站about anything and everything,focus your writing on what you're really interested in – the niche you won't get tired of day after day.

Even if your williamhill亚洲版blog is 威廉希尔网站about travel,you can cover a certain aspect of travel,like food travel,fashion travel,or cultural travel.

Write your williamhill亚洲版blog posts in your own personal voice.Use your unique personality,and the knowledge you know 威廉希尔网站about your topic.

Create your williamhill亚洲版blog posts so they are both personal and helpful.

Note: When I was growing up I absolutely hated writing,and I never dreamed I would ever write and earn a living doing it.Little did I know,when I had the opportunity to williamhill亚洲版blog 威廉希尔网站about what I wanted,like food,I loved it and still do.

Even if you don't love writing,don't rule out williamhill亚洲版blogging.

What is your goal for williamhill亚洲版blogging??

To keep a record of what you are doing,to make money,to connect with others??

No matter what your goal,commit yourself to williamhill亚洲版blogging,and persevere with it.

Additional travel williamhill亚洲版blogging resources:

This williamhill亚洲版blog post has covered a simple step by step guide on how to 威廉希尔有限公司start a travel blog,but most of the time I'm a food and travel williamhill亚洲版blogger.I don't williamhill亚洲版blog 威廉希尔网站about blogging very often.

So next,I'd like to share a few of the websites I read and really gain a lot from,that have truly helped me become a better williamhill亚洲版blogger.I would highly recommend you check these sites out as you dig deeper into williamhill亚洲版blogging or 威廉希尔有限公司starting an online business:

For myself,I love williamhill亚洲版blogging as a hobby and as a method of learning and sharing,but I also have chosen to do it full-time,and so I have tried,and keep trying many differentways and methods of earning moneyfrom my williamhill亚洲版blogs.

Additionally,if you're interested in a williamhill亚洲版blogging community where you can learn how to turn travel blogging into a business,,Travel williamhill亚洲版Blog Successis a fantastic online course,run by David Lee,an online travel williamhill亚洲版blogging friend of mine.

Overall,at the beginning of 威廉希尔有限公司startiwilliamhill亚洲版ng your blog,I would encourage you to williamhill亚洲版blog 威廉希尔网站about what you're passionate about,和持久的。

Conclusion

      There is more to SEO than just adding in your URL.Content plays a big role too,of course the more content you have,the better it is for search engines.Getting backlinks,like having a well known williamhill亚洲版blog site (like this one) link to your site will also help.But if you type in your domain in google search,it should show up.

    Hi Mark,,
    I've just bought a new MacBook Pro and now I figured that all of my williamhill亚洲版blogs' images appear blurry on the Retina Displays 🙁
    You are using Smugmug and upload double the image ratios,right?Thinking 威廉希尔网站about sitting down and re-editing all of my images now – do you have good experiences using Smugmug (good for the long term)??
    Also,what if in 5 years or so Apple brings out new Retina displays (like"Super Retina"),and once again these images look blurry – will you have to re-edit and re-upload once again?Would love to hear your thoughts on this Mark.
    Greetings from Ratchada 🙂

      Good to hear from you,yah this is always an issue.I'm using smugmug and have been happy with them the last couple years.I normally upload to full resolution on smugmug,and then go with the XL size when I embed.But that way if sizes go bigger then you still have the originals uploaded and can just add in a different size.Hope this helps!!

      1) SEO (search engine optimization) – optimizing your williamhill亚洲版blog and posts for search engines,so people can find you when they search.
      2) Guest posting,or making connections to get featured on bigger websites or magazines / news sites.

    Hi Mark!Thanks for your sharing 威廉希尔网站aboutwilliamhill亚洲版 your blogging experiences and this helpful articles.I thought of having a personal williamhill亚洲版blog with my own domain name for long time but don't know how and where to 威廉希尔有限公司start from.It's great I found your post.But as a beginner,please allow me to ask your few questions to clear my doubts.

    1.Is the domain name is good to use your own name?For example:stephenheng.com,so that people who knew me can find my williamhill亚洲版blog easily.Or the name related to my williamhill亚洲版blog which I going to create??

    2.If I want to have 3 website (or call webpage?),for example: I want to have 1 travel williamhill亚洲版blog,1 food williamhill亚洲版blog and 1 stuff selling blog.Should I say that I need to purchase 3 different domain name??

    3.You mentioned to install the plugins in this article,is this come with the package that I purchased?or I need to buy it separately??

    4.As a williamhill亚洲版blogger,which means I need to pay for my domain name plus the WorkPress subscription fee yearly in order to run my williamhill亚洲版blogs continually??
    Thanks.

    Hi Mark,Thank you for this information,very helpful.

    My question is: I have a YouTube Channel 威廉希尔网站about traveling,and I would love to hear from you how to 威廉希尔有限公司start vlogging while I'm traveling??

    For example:
    – How can I put a post code for me if I need to monetize my videos??
    – Should I upload vlog on a daily basis?.
    – The vlog is 威廉希尔网站about traveling,how long each vlog should be??
    – Do I need to create a new channel for my vlog or just the same one I use?.
    – Do I need a website like yours??
    – Do you agree that's people now love to see videos more than reading 威廉希尔网站about it??

    Thank you very much for time,and sorry for the long comment.
    Joe from Jordan.

    • williamhill网站

      3 years ago

      Hi Joe,thank you for the comment and questions,and appreciate your support.

      1.Do you mean to register for monetizing videos??
      2.It depends,if you have enough ideas and can maintain it,it's a good strategy.Otherwise stick with a video publishing schedule,like 1 or 2 videos per week.
      3.I would aim for 5 – 12 minutes or so.
      4.That also really depends on your aim and goals and what you think your audience will like.Maybe publish a vlog on your existing channel and see the feedback.
      5.I think a website goes very well with a williamhill亚洲版blog – because you have a website where viewers can get more information.
      6.I think video has potential to be more engaging,but it all depends on the person.

      Hope this is helpful!!

    I am in the midst of creating another one,travel related,and I stumbled across this post.😛

    I looked at some of your old videos – and they are totally different than what they are today.We sort of ‘evolve' and learn as we go.

    Many people seem to fear ‘威廉希尔有限公司starting' when they don't know everything,yet.But some of the best williamhill亚洲版blogs,sites,and even companies were founded when they had no clue what they were doing in the beginning.

    The key is just to 威廉希尔有限公司start.Take that learn-as-you-go approach 🙂

      Hi William,good to hear from you.No,if you have a hosting account,you don't need to pay for wordpress,it's open source,and free to use.Sitelock security might be a good idea,but you can probably do the search engine stuff all on your own using Yoast WordPress SEO plugin.All the best!!

    Nice choice of topic I would say and you are so good in explaining stuff.Just understood how williamhill亚洲版bloggers usually pour themselves out there enclosing all the magic they experienced.A huge thank you for it is a real guide for me to do something.

    Rapheal,,
    Dreams were once scary for me and I should admit that I wasn't that adventurous to take them in my hands,stand against people to follow them.You're eight family does come in the way and the commitments may line up but it all depends on how we meticulously handle things so that our dreams are guarded to be accomplished but not at the cost of others'.

    Was a good read Mark.Has been great watching you evolve over the years in your williamhill亚洲版blogging,and especially concentrating on your food niche (what a great niche to have)!!

    I tell other travellers when they learn 威廉希尔网站abowilliamhill亚洲版ut my blog that it's easy to set u威廉希尔有限公司p and start blogging,but like you said just make sure you are passionate 威廉希尔网站about what you do,like travel.

    When I 威廉希尔有限公司started almost 2 years ago now it was as a hobby,partly from so many friends saying I should write a book 威廉希尔网站about my travels and I figured it was easier just to williamhill亚洲版put a blog post up now and then,which turned out still to be a lot of work at times!Now I am concentrating on taking it much more seriously.

    My williamhill亚洲版blogging began in Ethiopia when I didn't really know how to write well but loved the photography aspect.

    I also had bugger all followers!I saw your name williamhill网站Mark Wiens 威廉希尔有限公司start to follow me on Facebook from an early stage,and I knew who you were from following you and other williamhill亚洲版bloggers for a while.Having a respected established travel williamhill亚洲版blogger follow me when no-one knew who I was was pretty cool.So cheers for that!!

    Wishing you and your wife a life of happiness and continued online business success.

    Hi Mark!Thank you for the informative post,i have followed your steps to 威廉希尔有限公司start my own site.The only problem i have is that the installed plugins made it so slow that is impossible to work with it now.I cannot make any edits as the wordpress dashboard will not load.Im not sure what to do 威廉希尔网站about this.Any ideas??

      Hi Ri,great to hear from you,glad that you've 威廉希尔有限公司started a website!Were you able to load your WordPress dashboard yet?I'm not sure what could really be slowing down your site that much,if you only installed wordpress and a few plugins.Was your site alright before you installed the plugins?If not,you can access your files through your host,or a third party FTP,and you can manually delete the plugin files and then hopefully get back into your dashboard.

      If that doesn't work,or if you're not able to access anything you may need to either re-install wordpress,or contact your host.

      Let me know if you have any updates.

    Hey Mark!Thanks for this amazing post!It's great to have all this helpful information put together in such a useful way.I read your williamhill亚洲版blog and watch your youtube videos all the time.They are a great resource for inspiration and food envy!!
    Quick question (or can you direct me where best to look) I 威廉希尔有限公司started a small travwilliamhill亚洲版el/food blog a few months ago based out of wordpress.com.I'd like to move over to my own domain but have been hesitant as I don't want to lose my content.Is there a way to easily transition between the two,or am I fighting a lost battle??
    Many thanks!Cheers Jenn

      Hi Jenn,great to hear from you,glad to see your williamhill亚洲版blog as well.I've never migrated a williamhill亚洲版blog like this myself,so I don't know exactly how to do it,but here's some good information:https://en.support.wordpress.com/moving-a-williamhill亚洲版blog/and if you'll be using a certain host,they may have their own tutorial,like for Bluehost:https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/help/wp_migrate

      The one thing that would concern me,and I'm not sure of the answer to this,is how it will affect pagerank and your search engine rankings for articles after you migrate,and also the redirects of your permalinks.Also make sure you backup.If you purchase a host,this is something you could ask them before you do anything.
