in this video I'll show you how you can create a blog website on Wix so even though you don't have any experience I'm gonna show you step by step how you can do this so that after watching this video you can actually start your own block website using Wix so this is a step by step Wix blog tutorial that's gonna show you step by step from beginning to finish how you can create your own blog in 2020 before we get into that make sure you go ahead and leave a like on the video and let me know in the comments down below what kind of block you want to create and let's just dive into my PC and then we're gonna find out how we can create a blog in 2020 on Wix okay so here we are on my PC I'm already on Wix if they're not on Wix already make sure you go ahead and go to the Wix website and then sign in or sign up for an account now once you're here all I need to do is click on create new site right there once you do that they're gonna ask you what kind of website you want to create so you're gonna find all of these options such as business online store on music designer and then right there in the top right corner you'll also find blog so you can go with block right there although that's not necessary you can also choose any of these other ones and then you can also turn that into a blog basically how this works is that whatever kind of topic you choose they're gonna base the templates on that so if you choose fitness they're gonna give you and show you templates that are based on other Fitness websites but for now I'll just go with block and I recommend you do that as well next up we've actually got a very important decision to make so we can let the Wix Adi system create a website for us or we have to create our own website with the Wix editor so if you're just starting out and you just want a random website I always recommend choosing the Wix Adi especially if you're a beginner however for making a block I highly recommend you go if you create your website with the Wix editor and that's what we're gonna do in this videos well so I'm gonna click on choose a template and I recommend you do that as well okay so once you do that you can actually start choosing a template so if I just scroll down you can see that they have tons of templates available this is just page one you can actually browse through all of these pages I'm not sure how many they have at least five but you can also filter this so you can go with all block templates you can go with personal blog templates food and travel blogs news and business arts fashion and beauty sports and wellness and podcasts as well so what I recommend doing is just clicking on all even though you might be in one of these niches if you just scroll down you'll find all of the templates that you can start using so basically what you need to do now is just browse for these pages find a template that you like that you want to use and then select that template so what I'm gonna do right now I'm gonna scroll down let's find out if I find a template that I would like to use and then I'll go with that one okay so right gara found this keto diet blog so i'm gonna click on this one if you hover over these you can actually click on edit right there and you can start editing your blog so right now I'm gonna get sent into your Wix editor and once you're there you can actually start editing your blog and there we are inside the Wix editor so once you go into that this is what it looks like so this is basically where you can start customizing your entire website and block so what I can do right now I can scroll down and show you what this template looks like so this is a keto diet blog and I'm gonna start customizing this so that I can show you guys how that works as well so this is what it looks like as of right now and I'm gonna show you how you can customize your template so first of all you can start off by changing the header image and you can actually change all of the images on your template which is quite easy to do all you need to do is click on it and then right there will say change strip background if you click on that you can change it to a color so if you would like to just have one color as a background you can do that as well if you don't want to do that you can go with images or videos so if you want to upload a video as your header you can actually click video right there and you can then to choose a video from your PC or from Wix or shut stocke but for the ones from Shutterstock you actually need to pay so I just recommend going with media from Wix or going to a free stock website such as pixabay or unsplash or pixels but for now I'm gonna go with an image as my background so I'm gonna click on image and what I'm gonna do now I'm gonna go to a website called pixels I'd entered for a keto diet so this is where you can type in your topic that your blog is about and you can then use all of these pictures for free so what I'm gonna do I'm going to try and find a good picture that I could use as my header alright so I downloaded this picture right here I can then go to the Wix editor click on upload media and I can an upload from my computer so you can also upload images from your PC that you can then use on your blog so I'm going to open this image and we'll see what that actually looks like so once you do that it's gonna upload and as you can start there it's still processing now once it's done processing you can click on change background right there you can also choose to crop and edit the image or adjust it and you can even cut out the background so for now I'll just go change background and I'll see what that looks like and there it is so this actually looks pretty cool in my opinion I'm not sure what you guys think but this is pretty decent to start off with my blog so that's how you can change the background image and you can also do the exact same process for all of these images right here you simply click on it you then click change image and you can then customize that image right there now what if I want to edit the text so it works kind of the same as changing an image all you need to do is click on the text and then right there you can find edit text so what I like to do right now is change the font size right there I'm gonna make that a bit smaller and I'm also gonna change the color since the white like letters don't really fit into the background so what I'm gonna do I'm gonna scroll down let's see color right there and I'm gonna make this black alright so I'll just customize the text I know this is not the best-looking header however I just want to show you guys the process of editing text it's not about making the best block in this video so that's how you can edit text on your website and once again you can also do that with all of the other in your template simply click on it and you can then click on settings and you can start customizing it or if it's just a normal text you can click on that and then click on edit text if you want to get rid of an entire section on your website you can select it and you can then basically hit backspace on your keyboard and you can see that it will actually be deleted so you can also do that with the text just like this and that's how you can actually get rid of an entire section on your website ok so that's how you can edit and customize the background images and he texts but let's find out how you can actually add pages and how you can actually add side menus as well so if you click right there in the top left corner you can see site menu so right here you can find all of the different sections on your website and they will actually show up right here on your side menu now let's say that you don't want lifestyle to show up in your side menu you can actually click on that menu right there click on the free dots and you can then hide it right there you can also delete it if you just want it to be gone on your website on your blog but you can also click on hide and it won't show up on your side menu now these are clickable so if people are on your blog and they click on what is Quito you can actually send them over to a different page where you can explain what keto diet is about now this is also where you can add a page so if you click right there add page at the bottom you can actually start adding your own page or section so right there you can then give that a name click on done and you've then just created that new page which will then show up on your side menu as well ok so before I show you how you can actually write your first blog post and where you can add those posts I want to show you how you can edit text images buttons and basically anything onto your website so for that you want to click on the plus icon right there which stands for add and then right here you can actually add text you can add images you can add boxes strips you can add menus you can add social media accounts you can embed HTML frames so basically if you want to add anything to your web this is where you need to go so once again click on add right there you can also use the search function so let's say that you want to add music to your website you then type in music and then right there they're going to show you the available options that you can use to then add music to your website all you will need to do is click on that then select it in here and you can then add that to your website basically wherever you want to place that and where ever you want to use it the music widget will then show up you can make that smaller if you want to but that's up to you guys and you can emplace that wherever you want on your website maybe you would like to use it right there I know this is not a good place but let's just just show you how that actually works and you can do that with anything so if you would like to add text you click on text right there you click on a heading or on a title you click on it and you will then be able to customize that and add this onto your website you're also able to add different apps to your Wix website now these apps can actually help you out edit your website or add things that you want to add basically if you go on here you can actually find all of these apps it's kind of like the same as the Shopify app store and this is where you can find apps that are gonna help you to improve your blog and improve your performance as well so if you go on here you can actually click search for example you can choose um events right there if you want to add events to your blog and then right there you can download Wix events the events calendar the Event Viewer so this is where you can add apps to your website so that you can make it easier for the customer to find out when you're hosting events or when they can actually go to an event and this is also easy for you so that you can actually add those events to your own blog I'll leave all of that up to you guys it comes down to how you want to create your own blog but for now I'll show you how you can actually start by adding your blog post so you want to click right there on my blog and you can then go into the block manager so right there you can click on create a post or you can manage posts so if you've already written like a couple of posts on your blog you can click right there on manage and you can then find all of your blog posts however as this is a new blog I'm gonna click on create post right there and this is where you can actually start writing your own blog post okay so it's quite easy to do basically all you need to do is go in here and then right there you can already start so add a catchy title so I'll just go this is my first blog post and then right there you would basically start writing your content so the keto diet and then blah blah blah it just basically comes down to creating and typing your content right here I'll just go with some random stuff for now so that there's content in there yeah that's it okay so this doesn't make sense don't pay attention to that it's just to show you how it works now you can also add an image to that blog post you can click right there then once again it's going to be the same as changing your background you can change one of the images that you already have on your blog post I mean on your blog website or you can upload media you can go to media from Wix or unsplash or Shutterstock as well so for example let's say that I want to search for diet let's see if they have some quality pictures available they actually do if I click right there and add to page I can actually add this on to my blog post you can make that smaller if you want to so that's how you can add photos to your blog post you can also add a gallery you can add a video you can add a divider you can add HTML code gives so you can basically add anything onto your blog on there so this is where you would write down your content now once you're done doing that you can go into these settings of this post you can then use a display cover image I recommend doing that it makes it more visual and it will probably give you more clicks and it will improve the readers experience which is cool right there you can change the publish date you can change the offer if you want to and right there you can write a small description you can also change the SEO so the search engine optimization you can right there change the title that's gonna show up in Google you can also change the URL of this post and once you're done all of it doing all of that you can put this into a category for example you can add this to what is Quito if you do that people will be able to click on your side menu right because if they click on what is Kido this block will then also show up which is great if people want to find out about Nikita diet so for example if you just wrote a blog explaining the keto diet you can then add that right here which is great if people then click on that on your side menu or on a backlink you will then send them over to this blog post now once you're done doing all of this you can click on publish right there so you can you can also save this as a draft you can schedule this post or you can just publish it right away and there you go to see your post life first publish your site okay so because I haven't I just created this site because I haven't published my entire site yet I'm not able to publish this live so it's not on the internet right away so what you need to do for that is make sure to plug to publish your site to do that you can click on publish any top right corner and this is where you can actually publish your account so if you're going with the free trial you can use the free domain from Wix however that doesn't look professional so if you really want to like create a professional blog and you want to take this seriously then I highly recommend getting a custom domain so click on done right there and you can done basically set this up so you can click on edit mobile site if you want to to make sure that the mobile experience is as good as the experience on your desktop but yeah click on publish right there and you can then go live with your website once you've published your website you can go back on here basically go to your dashboard and a right there you can click on connect a domain or you can change your Wix plan so that you can also connect a domain and you can even get a domain for free for the first year so this is where you can choose a paid plan on Wix it's up to you whether you want to do that or not I'll leave that up to you guys but but yeah that's pretty much how you can create your own blog website on Wix if you
