If you want to learn how to start a WordPress blog I recommend Bluehost for your hosting provider as they offer good uptimes and speeds which are important if you want good traffic from the major search engines.

My name is Jamie Spencer and I have spent the past 10 years building money making blogs. After growing tired of the 9-5, commuting and never seeing my family I decided that I wanted to make some changes and launched my first blog. Since then I have launched lots of successful niche blogs and after selling my survivalist blog I decided to teach other people how to do the same.

None of this makes any sense. I own a domain name, I have web hosting for it with unlimited domains hosting. I have a wordpress.com website and blog set up and working. So, how do I make my existing wordpress.com site a wordpress.org site. Every link to “easy instructions for migrating to wordpress.org” seems to require having to buy new hosting on BlueHost or another hosting provider. So what is this all about? Can I not host a wordpress.org site with my current provider, HostGator?
Hi Al, yes of course – just skip the steps to buy hosting, you will need to add WordPress.org to your Hostgator account and then everything else is the same
This is exactly what I needed to read. I hope I can make the move to wordpress.org happen by myself…it’s pretty daunting if anything goes wrong! Your clear explanations seem quite reassuring.Thanks for that! Julie
I enjoy what you guys are up too. Such clever work and exposure!
Keep up the terrific works guys I’ve included you guys to blogroll.
