Obtain a Twitter Account. Once you sort out your domain name, open a Twitter account using the same name. Twitter is one of the popular social media sites that allow users to converse with one another. As a blogger, you can use Twitter to promote your most recent posts. You can do this by writing the title of your post with a link attached back to your blog post! Twitter can give you quicker traffic results than the search engines, because time is needed to be discovered in Google, Yahoo or Bing.
Pay for hosting. A word of warning is needed here. Please stay away from FREE blogs that make use of shared hosting like BlogSpot or WordPress.com (not wordpress.org). You always have the risk that your blog could be frozen and deleted.
