In this comprehensive and fast-paced video, I show you exactly how to make a blog, from scratch. We're talking: going from not having a blog, to having an Australian (or other country) blog set up and complete with your first post - all in under 9 minutes.

Step 1: Buy a domain name (ie: yourblog.com.au) http://www.mcwebdesign.com.au/crazydo...
Step 2: Point our domain to our hosting
Step 3: Buy website hosting (DreamHost) http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?647903
Step 4: Install our blog (WordPress)
Step 5: Set up our blog
Step 6: Create our first post
Step 7: Customise the look of our blog (Change "Theme")
Step 8: Update permalinks setting to aid search performance

I used the following services:
Crazy Domains: http://www.mcwebdesign.com.au/crazydo...
This is to register your domain name -- ex: yourblog.com.au

DreamHost: http://www.dreamhost.com/r.cgi?647903
These girls and guys make your blog visible to the world.

I have a promotion code that will entitle you to $10 off your first year of hosting. Just enter RYANSENTME in the coupon code box during checkout.

Cheers everyone.
