So, you want to know how to become a blogger, too? Well, this post is more on “How I Became A Blogger,” so it’s quite more personal
Well, I do think that’ll be actually helpful if you’re a newbie. In this very first post of mine, I’m going to share with you how I became the blogger I am now.
If you consider yourself a newbie, then I can probably help you.
Start A Free Blog
Blogging doesn’t have to be complicated.
First of all, let me list down the “platforms” that already sound familiar:
I only had WordPress and Tumblr back then, but I did not maintain them. If you personally know me, you’ve probably read from these blogs:
Both were free to create, but I didn’t own a domain of my own. (Yeah, I love how that sounds. And yes, I’m sometimes playful with words.)
Now back to business.
To start your own free site, you may just go to WordPress.com or Tumblr.com. It’s pretty straightforward to create an account.
But then, you won’t have something like https://crystallasta.com.
You can create a blog for free, but it’s at the expense of not having your own domain name.
Now if you don’t want that, you may instead host your own blog.
How To Host Your Own Blog
First of all, I want to explain why you should ever consider hosting your own blog. So, here’s…
As I said, I can’t have something as direct as crystallasta.com or quantumasianquartz.com or quantumquarksandgluons.com by using free blogging platforms.
My first two blogs were hosted for free, so I got a
- mysitetitle.wordpress.com, and a
It looked too long and unprofessional to me, but it took years before I finally decided to get my own domain. Hence the birth of this site:
- The Struggling Christian (a self-hosted Wordpress site).
Now that’s under the domain name crystallasta.com. The first time I had it, I was so glad I could finally own a website to my name.
Shortly after, I encouraged my sis to host her own site too. Hence the birth of this site:
- Vegan Travels (https://vegantravs.com)
Seven months into having my crystallasta.com (with occasional hiccups in trying to develop it), I decided to add a subdomain. And that’s how this very site came into being:
- The Struggling Techie (https://tech.crystallasta.com)
Are you seeing the logic why I’ve been wanting to host my own site?
It’s simple. I could run a business out of it!
And if that’s what you want, or at least where you’re headed, then better learn how to start a self-hosted site!

So here’s how I actually started. I came across Writers.Academy somewhere on Instagram. No, actually, it was my sister who found the promotional post. She shared it to me knowing how much I liked writing.
And—guess what—that’s how I was able to put up my first self-hosted site!
