Blog creation comes into play when you first get the idea to have one. Once you do this then the creative juices start to flow and you begin to search for ideas to blog about. Even if it's a make money blog you still need to research for a niche and products.
As I have mentioned in other posts you should do all your research and have an outline BEFORE you purchase a domain name. This is important! Or set up a free Blogger blog to give it a trial run. In other words, test your idea, niche and product.
Then if it's something you feel you will stay committed to and is worthwhile go ahead and buy the domain and set up a WordPress blog/site with your own hosting.
You can always transport from Blogger to WP, so you haven't lost anything by testing unless you get stupid and make MFA (made for adsense) sites that are worthless and google shuts you down. Then you have wasted valuable time.
For blog creation you need to do a lot of research to find worthwhile information and to get instruction. Youtube has many tutorials that are free, so there's no excuse as to why you can't set up a blog or learn internet/affiliate marketing.
There's also the Ehow site which has an article on how to do just about everything. They're another good resource that's free. In fact, if you need to make extra money sign up and write articles on what you do know and gain experience as well as cash.
Then of course, there's the 30 Day Challenge it's free too! You will learn all the basics of setting up a blog/site as well as internet marketing and much more.
Creating a blog takes patience and hard work if you want it to be successful. However, you can make it easier if you don't try to do it all by yourself, but admit you need help. I know this from experience I wasted months trying to figure it out on my own.
Finally, I came to my senses and did the 30DC, which led me to the Warrior forum, that led me to the Niche Blogger. Now, I have a mentor and don't have to do it alone.
