How to Set Up a History Blog From Scratch

If you have wanted to set up a history blog for a while but didn’t really know how to do it, then you’ll love what I’m about to tell you.

Here on Smart History Blogging, I’ve added a new mini-course which shows you step-by-step how to beautifully set up a history blog from scratch using WordPress.

What is in the mini-course?

The module “Setting Your History Blog Up For Success” will show you through demo videos and tips how to do all of this:

  • Get your blog registered and hosted (very cheaply)
  • Choose and Install a theme
  • Create easy navigation and design features
  • Create Pages
  • Publish Posts
  • Customise your history blog, and
  • Add in essential plugins.

Now, I could have just stopped there.

But I haven’t.

Why? Because, I know that just as important as teaching you the nuts and bolts of going from post-its to hitting publish on your very own blog is making sure you know how to create a history blog that is inspiring, flexible and will last.
