The Start a Blog Guide with Kristie Hill

Build your own blog on WordPress in a week! Step-by-step tutorials to help you get up and running.


Do you want to start a blog but get overwhelmed and discouraged by the technical aspects of setting up a blog?

Maybe you’ve read a few blog posts about starting a blog and it all seems like a complex jargon.

I totally get it.

In 2010 I was finishing up my bachelor’s degree in Horticulture: Floral Design with big plans to be a famous wedding florist.

I knew that I needed to be online for potential clients to find me. I wanted a website and I wanted to blog about all things wedding.

I signed up for a CSS and HTML class an intended on building my own site. I went to the first class and sat through it like a deer in headlights.

I just wanted a blog! I did not sign up to learn a foreign language.

It was confusing, complex, and intimidating.

I dropped out.

Never in a million years would I have thought I could go from being a wedding florist to a WordPress guru and blog coach!

I taught myself how to use WordPress and be techy and now I want to help you:

If I can do it, so can you!
