In Lesson 2, I’m going to take you through the process of choosing an awesome domain name, show you where to get the best deal and walk you through the process of registering your domain name – step by step.

In addition to this, I will also teach you how to set your blog up for SEO success with some hot tips that will help boost every blog post you write.
And lastly, I’ll show you the four pages your blog site must have before you get cracking on writing your first blog.
