hey everybody this is Pat from the smart passive income blog I just want to thank you for taking a moment of your day to check out this quick video of me showing you exactly how you can build a blog and write your first blog posts in less than four minutes so in the time it takes you to boil a pot of water you can have your own blog with its own domain your first blog post up all ready to go for the world to see which is awesome now you may be wondering why I’m creating this video and the reason is because I know there’s a lot of you out there who just don’t know how to get started and and set up your own blog which you know is the first step to creating your online success for a lot of people and I definitely think a blog is the way to go because it’s easy to set up it’s dirt cheap you don’t have anything to lose and it’s a great way to gain a lot of followers within a relatively short amount of time now obviously you’re not going to get rich the day after you create your blog you’re gonna have to work at it a little bit creating your content and you know reaching out to other bloggers and and gaining a mass following but that can happen it happened for me and it happens for a lot of people every day but for a lot of people the hardest part is just setting up the blog and getting started you know they have a ton of information in their head they’re just waiting for it to get out there online for people to see they just don’t know how to do it or set up a blog I’m going to show you exactly how you could do that right now in less than four minutes so this is actually my first take and I’m hoping it only takes one take because I don’t want to end up buying three or four different domain names if I end up messing up during the process but I’m confident I can do it under 4 minutes and I’m also hoping that I have enough time to change the theme of the blog as well as at a picture to the first blog post as well which really makes your blog posts stand out a lot more and you’ll see that hopefully at the end of this video and I’m ready to get started if you are so let’s do this now I apologize if I’m going a little too fast here I really want to try and get it under 4 minutes to show you how quickly it can be done but for your convenience I’ve outlined the information below in a step step format so you know exactly what to do and you can go at your own pace but this video will show you exactly how you can do it too all right so I have an online stopwatch timer already set up for you so you know I’m not cheating or you know editing it weird or anything like that so here it is set up at four minutes I’m going to pull up my blog and I’m going to use the Bluehost link on the right-hand sidebar to start so let’s go alright Bluehost first thing you want to do is go to domain check this is where you check to see if the domains you want are available or a minute blog and it should pull up registration information if it is available all right just like that I put in my information phone number email password password now I’m going to set it up for twelve months at seven ninety five per month and putting credit card information now hopefully I can blur this out later so you don’t steal my credit card number right and next now creating order records is what it says now it should be there should just be a button that’ll take you to your control panel right away and help you get set up with WordPress so yeah at the top control panel oh I’m a little too fast for their system all right let me try again all right there we go now if you get rid of that welcome message and scroll down to software and services you’ll see button for WordPress really convenient stuff and there should be an install button at the bottom and I’m going to set up some Advanced Options I want to give my blog name the 4-minute blog and I want to create my own password and all that stuff legal information alright and it’s creating the WordPress blog for me right now 40 percent complete now after this is all set up I should be able to just go right to my blog and sign in from there all right it’s all ready to go now I’m going to open up a new tab and go to WWF 4-minute blog comm and it should pull up the generic WordPress theme that we just set up there it is right there now I’m going to click on login admin and the password that you set up could save the password if you want and this is your control panel I’m going to actually change the theme from within WordPress I’ll click on appearance and then click on add new themes and now you can search for a whole bunch of different kinds that you want but I there’s one in particular that I like called soul or WP soul install click on install now and it’s that easy all you have to do is activate it and it’s all ready to go it automatically changes your theme now I’m going to create my new post still got a minute to spare add new welcome to the 4-minute blog hi everyone I think I’m actually going to finish before the 4 minute timer is up whoo I think I’ll add boobs add a picture since I have some time alright to add a picture you click on here upload and insert select files I have a picture all ready to go and just takes a brief moment I’m going to Center it and insert into post and it’s right there my blog post let me say bye and click on publish and I’m going to show you exactly what it looks like when someone comes to the 4-minute blog com and there it is there’s a this is the blog post it’s all set up for you is the picture of the smiling face cappuccino thing and I have a second left so that’s it and it actually did take just about four minutes to complete that process which is which is awesome and that included getting the domain and the hosting package at a dirt cheap price from Bluehost comm which is what I use for all of my hosting and that’s six or seven bucks a month which is awesome and also that included setting up the WordPress blogging platform and also going in there changing the theme and adding my first blog posts and adding a picture to it all within four minutes like you saw but you know I know it’s going to take you a little bit longer and I want you to do it right but if you were scared about the process before hopefully you aren’t now because you know that there’s no coding involved there’s no HTML work CSS you can do the whole thing just by clicking a button here clicking a button there and magically a blog appears which is great so if you’ve had any reservations about starting a blog before not knowing how to do it well you don’t have an excuse anymore and feel free to use the steps below to help you again during this process so I hope you like this video I hope you found it useful and thank you again for joining me today Cheers
