Recently, the most asked questions from my followers on social media (mainly Instagram) has been related to blogging and how to create a self-hosted WordPress blog.

Why was I being asked these questions?

Around October 2018, I moved from a free WordPress blog to a self-hosted blog I developed and I’ve been getting questions ever since. These questions usually revolve around how I set up the blog all on my own and requests for a guide on how to do the same.

If you didn’t know, I recently finished my Computer Engineering degree but I now identify as “Frontend Engineer” AKA I develop websites and web apps. Despite that, I had to do a lot of research as I wasn’t a professional WordPress developer and didn’t fully know what to expect. Still, it was easier for me because of my tech background.

What prompted me to write this eBook?

Earlier this year, I refurbished the look of my theme by customizing it with a lot of CSS codes. I got appreciative comments on the new look and some reached out with paid offers to work on their blogs too. I was excited to work on these projects and even created a “service package” for clients.

However, I discovered most of them didn’t have experience with developer fees. They also had extremely small budgets which could not cover even a small part of development costs. This prompted me to think of a way to help them build their dream blog without the overhead costs and I took polls to get ideas.

Eventually, I settled on the eBook idea and that was how I decided to write and publish a comprehensive D.I.Y guide on the whole process.


I’ll be customising another theme for my blog soon. If you like my current theme and would love to get the entire CSS codes I used for the customisation, leave a comment on this post and I’d reach out to you!!
