      1. hello,
        I bought a domain from GoDaddy but I don’t know how I can connect it by WordPress, can you help me, please?

        1. Hi there! Basically you have to buy hosting, then connect your domain to your host, then get WordPress (usually this can be done through your blog host). I have basic instructions in this post >>> https://www.productiveblogging.com/start-a-successful-wordpress-blog/ or a more comprehensive guide in my Profitable Blogging Jumpstart course >>> https://www.productiveblogging.com/pbj where I take you step by step through all the steps and include video tutorials. Hope that helps! Eb 🙂

  1. Hi EB, thank you so much for this enlightening post. I would have made many of those mistakes if I didn’t check out this post!.
    I am just a 17 year old who hasn’t had her own bank account yet.
    Which brings me to this question; if I use my parent’s bank account to register and start my new blog, Can I change it back to my own new bank account when I get?
    Thanks for the post!☺

    1. Hi there! So pleased you found this post helpful and it’s saved you from making a ton of mistakes 😀 I am pretty sure signing up with your parents’ bank account and switching over to your own at a later date would be fine. It’s not very much difference from just changing your account details / switching to a business account and I have done both of those things! Eb 🙂

    1. Oooh yes, both very good points! Good grammar is always important and you are so right, far too many new bloggers spend far too much time fiddling around with their site’s design, when what they really should be doing is creating lots of really good content. So please you enjoyed my blog post! Eb 🙂

  2. Hi Eb Gargano, I just launch my blog. And because of that I ended here so I can start the right way. Your post is full of useful information. I sure will spend more time reading everything and read your other blog post. I’ve had the domain and hosting for almost 2 years now, but finally had the courage to launch and post 3 blog posts just so I can start (even if i think I’m still not ready). I will take you advice and start learning SEO and learn to write long form content. For the future as you said. Thank you
