    So below, I’m going to outline exactly what you need to do to get started and set up your own personal blog.

    There’s five main steps you need to go through in order to set up a blog. If you follow this guide and the five steps, you’ll have your own blog set up in 5 minutes or less. It’s nowhere near as difficult as setting up a website from scratch (there’s very little technical ability needed here). In fact, there’s no coding required by you. Good news, huh?

    The 5 Simple Steps to Starting a Blog:

    Choose your preferred blog platform
    Choose web hosting for your blog
    Setting up a blog on your own domain
    Designing your blog
    Useful resources for blogging​

    You forgot the most important steps:

    1. Be able to write
    2. Know what you want to write about

    True. These are the most basic of it all. All writer's have experienced a writer's block so setting up a blog isn't as important as the act of writing itself. You need to know where you are headed with your writing and what you want to impart to your readers.

    And 3. Have enough interest about what you're writing about to write consistently until the end of time

    If you want to be a blogger then firstly you should know about type of content, Word limits, keyword density, keyword frequency, keyword prominence and terms & conditions of content.

    English is important to write the content, but if you write the content for US or UK then the writing style will be different, so these are the basic points which you should know.

    I would definitely spend £30 on a quality theme, it is worth the expense to get one that works well. I paid around £38 for mine and I think it looks professional and it works without any problem. You can see it working on thisactualcamera.com

    That theme is free.

    And not very good. There are far better free themes you could have used.

    Thanks for the reply! The theme was upgraded to obtain additional functionality. Constructive feedback on the theme would be good? And if you have suggestions for better free themes I'd be happy to consider them. Thanks

    All you have is a very basic blog. The 2019 theme will do the job just as well. Or pretty much any of the free themes you can access from the theme manager.

    Consider also that most browsing is done using phones so anything with a sidebar is now very dated.

    I would add to be able to engage with your readers and create a background story, no one want to read only bulk information
