    Hello all,

    i currently own a Twitter account with 5,000 followers in the health information niche. It talks about crazy, interesting, and surprising facts about health and fitness and is growing by about 1,000 followers/week. I use TweetAdder and an auto clicker (since there is no more automated functions for following).

    I plan to start up a website for this twitter account. I have the domain name in mind and I am a very good writer so I plan to have articles, videos, links, and lists of facts by categories. I would like to monetize this site. I currently only use my likes and don't make very much ($10-$15 per week) since my following isn't that big yet. For the website I would like to incorporate google Adsense, CJ, Clickbank, etc. and any other ways you can help monetize it.

    I don't have very much (If any) skill in coding but I am great with computers and catch on quickly. Ideally, I would like a solid hosting site with templates I can start off with. My question is where do I even start for my website. The only thing I really have looked at is GoDaddy but I have read bad things about it on this forum. Any help for ideas to get my started would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    Hostgator has good, reliable hosting. Plus they're having a sale for today only where you get 51% off hosting!

    Hit me up on Skype if you need a great site design/content/structuring to start off with. I have a lot of premium themes and some great coding and SEO skills. This is what i do for a living.

    1. get domain from godaddy. plenty of coupons available
    2. get hosting. hostgator.com | best customer service
    3. get wordpress files from wordpress.com and upload to file manager and add a free theme.
    If you don't want to use wordpress I believe hostgator has a free website builder (no coding necessary). You can also use sites like webixx or others to build a website.

    4. Make money!

    PS. pm any questions

    Don't PM me and I don't have Skype... Not trying to earn hosting commissions off BHW LOL

    It's 2013 you don't have to code sh*t to set up website/blog.

    1) I use namecheap as main registrar (google "namecheap coupon code May 2013" to save a buck and change on registering site) and go with .com or .org.
    2) Hostgator has awesome customer service hands down so I use their hosting.
    3) Install wordpress & search for "responsive" theme.
    4) ????
    5) Profit

    Go to youtube and it will show you how to install wordpress and anything else you may want to do. Protip: Stick to videos in the 2-3 minute range for simple tasks. The 7+ minute videos for most things are the guy/girl fumbling through and you will lose interest quickly.

    Important: Don't worry about getting it perfect off the bat, just get it started!

    1. Get a domain at Namesilo.com. 8.99 per domain + $1 off for new customer. They even have WhoisGuard for free and plenty of other tools to manage domain for free.
    2. Get a hosting at Hostgator.com (Best) or go with VPS at Wiredtree or Nexcess.net
    3. Get a theme at Themeforest.net. You can pay for theme or search for nulled version of the theme on Google
    4. Start installing Wordpress and banking.
