If you decided to create a blog, there are simple step-by-step instructions that you could do.
Find the right name for your blog.
This would be the first essential step that you are required to do. If you want, you could use your own name or a favorite cake dessert name that you like. Just make sure that it is catchy and readers could easily remember your blog name. Also, try to search online and make sure that no one’s using the name that you’ve chosen. Your blog’s name must be memorable, easy to spell, and illustrative.

After you’ve picked the right name for your blog it’s time to look for a web host. If you are wondering about web hosting services, it is basically an internet hosting service that enables and allow any individuals or even organization create their own website accessible through the World Wide Web. There are a ton of web hosting services available on the internet and you can search one using any search engine you prefer. However, there would be a certain fee that you need to pay either via monthly, quarterly, or yearly payment depending on the web hosting services.

Note: Remember to make your website design to be user friendly as possible. Don’t cram it with unnecessary stuff. Just keep it simple, clean, and minimalistic.
Always keep your site active
Keep your website running and up to date. Always make sure to put content on your website frequently. Say for example a cake recipe like vanilla cake recipe or just a simple cake recipe every week will do. The visitors of your site will be most likely to think that you’re really into what you are doing if your site is active and always updated.
Engaged in social media
Sometimes, having a blog isn’t enough these days. In today’s times, having a social media page is also an essential tool in reaching many people as possible. You can use social media sites like Facebook, Instagram, and even twitter. These social media sites are free and you can create a page about your blog.
Note: On your social media page always remember to put a direct link to your blog every time you create a social media post.
Aside from the blog, you can also do a cake baking video tutorial and you can post that video using an online video-sharing platform like YouTube. Aside from baking materials and ingredients you also need a camera, computer for video editing, and internet connection. If you don’t have a professional camera or camcorder, you can always use your regular smartphone as your primary camcorder for recording cake baking recipes and even baking experience. For editing your videos, there are actually a handful of free video editing software available on the internet but if you have some extra cash you could purchase professional video editing software if you want. You can also use social media to gain more viewers and subscribers to your channel.
These are just some of the ways that you can do if you want to share your personal cake recipe and cake baking experience with the rest of the world. By doing this, your not just only sharing your knowledge but also your sweetness.
