What is All Things Blogging?

Welcome to AllThingsBlogging.com (formerly HowToStartABlog.org).

Who is this site for?

This site is for anyone who wants to make a website or blog, but doesn't want to have to spend thousands of dollars to hire a designer to do it. It doesn't matter if you are an absolute beginner. There is going to be an option for you to get a nice website up and running quickly.

What is covered?

HowToStartABlog also covers everything you will need to start a blog (or make a website), including blogging software, domain names, and website hosting.

This site also features a fair amount of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) related content, with a strong focus on attracting visitors to your website.

I do receive compensation from some the companies whose products I recommend, but I can say that they are the products that I personally use and trust.

About The Author

Hi! My name is Badi Jones. The host of the All Things Blogging podcast. I'm also a web developer, blogger, and part-time entrepreneur. I love sharing what I've learned over to the years with bloggers, future entrepreneurs, and just about anyone who's interested in getting online.

I have been making websites since 1998. I used to create websites as a job, but eventually started building and promoting my own websites.

Several of the blogs and tools I've created since then have been featured in:

Brands that have featured my sites

I've always enjoyed helping others get Websites of their own. That is the main reason why I created this tutorial. So I could try to let people know just how easy it has become for the average person to get a blog or website online.

When blogging software became freely available and easily accessible, it got a lot easier and faster to get a website up and running. These days, what once took days to do can be done in minutes. You can literally have your own blog up and running in minutes! I really think that's amazing, and I hope you can use the information on this site to make your own blog.


Thanks again for visiting. Please like us on Facebook, and share with any friends who you think might be interested.


HowToStartABlog.org primarily uses WordPress.


HowToStartABlog.org currently hosted on Amazon Web Services. It's not the most user friendly host, but it allows for a lot of flexibility at a fair price.


HowToStartABlog.org is using a custom theme called



ampampBlogStartPro is a 100% valid AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) html theme. Yes, All AMP with no standard HTML version.

The goal was to make a theme that was slim, simple, and fast. I feel like AMP was a good solution.

The theme (ampBlogStartPro) is based on the _s starter theme, which you can find here: http://underscores.me/

Some elements of Twitter's BootStrap 3 framework are also used for the responsive layout.

The DESIGN is by Rendy Kurniawan ( deerendee @ freelancer.com ).
