The first thing in designing a website is to start from the beginning. I won’t start with the beginning for me because that involved learning coding languages that aren’t applicable for the purposes of this guide. But when you’re considering website construction without complicated coding the first place to start is WordPress. WordPress makes website construction quick and easy. My first exposure to WordPress came through the use of website tutorials on Tyler.com. The video below shows the introduction to constructing a WordPress site.
Just a few tips regarding WordPress and the above video. One of the issues when creating a WordPress website is finding a hosting service (the company that actually puts you’re site on the web and makes it visible) that integrates with WordPress. An easy solution is to register and host your domain name with Godaddy.com and use their “Managed WordPress” package. The video below walks you through this setup process.
Ok, so you have a domain name registered and hosted, what’s next. Well, you can use the free tools from Tyler.com to build a solid professional website or you can progress to something a little more advanced. When I say advanced, I don’t mean more complicated. However, if you want better tools you have to pay for them. The video below shows you one of these tools called Divi that is available from Elegant Themes.com.

If you like what you saw in the above video, I suggest going to Elegant Themes.com and purchasing the Divi theme. This is the theme that was used to build my website. The Divi builder is very easy and intuitive. Packages like Divi are making coding a thing of the past for website construction.

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I
    was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for
    my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

      I’m using the Divi theme created by Elegant Themes. Their blog plugin is very powerful and easy to use. They have a comprehensive offering of many well-designed tools. Blog setup is quick and easy. They also regularly update their plugins and themes. I think you would be very happy with their product.

    Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how
    so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

      This is a great question. The days of having to code in html to start a website are over. WordPress websites are as easy to use as Microsoft Office. If you are willing to watch a few youtube videos and read a few tutorials when you get stuck then you are good to go. Google searching a problem will bring you to a solution for the majority of the problems that you encounter. Also, if you want something with a little more style and power without programming, I would recommend checking out Elegant Themes. The prices are very reasonable and the Divi builder is powerful and easy to use. Their blog plugin is a great tool and it is the one I utilize for my websites.

      Good luck with the blog!

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
    your articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    However think of if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your
    posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    clips, this website could certainly be one of the best in its field.
    Awesome blog!

    Hello there! Quick question that’s totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My website
    looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find
    a template or plugin that might be able to fix this
    issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.
    Cheers!
