How to start a blog ?
Are you wondering how to start a blog or even you’ve got questions on it. I’m glad you’re here! In this post, I’ll show you exactly the way to create your own blog, no technical experience required.
Why start a blog ?
There are many reasons to think about starting a blog. Here are a few popular ones:
–> Make money while working from home. I make a full-time income blogging. Many others do the same. Making money as a blogger is hardwork, but it’s low risk, low overhead and low barrier to entry.
–> Become a published author. It’s no secret, lately publishers rarely work with authors who don’t have a web presence. The reason is simple: it’s tons easier to sell books to people that already know you. A blog is one among the simplest and best places to start out .
–> A blog gives anyone, from individuals to large companies, the power to succeed in an outsized number of individuals at little or no cost.
Just write. If you would like to write down , share your story, encourage others and build a community, a blog may be a excellent spot to try to to that.
There are 6 steps to start a blog:
–> Decide what to blog about.
–> Choose a blogging platform.
–> Find a host.
–> Pick a domain name.
–> Design & use your blog!
–> Let’s Start
Step 1:Decide what to blog about
If you’re a part of a business, company or organization, your blog should be associated with the product(s) or service(s) you provide, or the cause you promote.
If you’re a private , you’ve got more flexibility when choosing a subject . Main things to remember are :
Blog about something you enjoy. If you aren’t excited about your topic, writing about it’ll be drudgery. Who wants that? Also, why would readers have an interest if you aren’t?
Blog about something with many room for discussion. A blog requires plenty of content to urge going and remain interesting. You’ll be at this an extended time so confirm you’ve got plenty to speak about.
Choose a distinct segment during which you’ll establish yourself as an authority. You probably won’t be the primary person to blog about the subject you select . It’s almost guaranteed someone else has thought of it before you. Don’t fret about this, come up with a singular angle. Do you have an inexpensive chance of creating your blog better than others talking about an equivalent thing?
The goal for any blog is to get rank resources for its topic or niche.
Step 2: Choose a blogging platform
If you would like to cook, you would like a kitchen. If you would like to blog, you would like a blogging platform.
There are many blogging platforms to choose from. WordPress, Blogger, Squarespace, Wix and Weebly are a couple of .
I use and recommend WordPress.
If you select WordPress, you’ve got two options: hosted or self-hosted.
Self-hosted WordPress blogs, sometimes called WordPress.org blogs, cost a touch money but offer you far more control, and don’t limit your income potential.
Note: albeit a self-hosted WordPress blog is usually mentioned as a “WordPress.org” blog, you’re not limited to a .org at the top of your name. You can still use .com or the other , a bit like I do for gettopinfo.in.
Alright, let’s get set up!
Step 4: Pick a domain name
A domain is a web address. For example, gettopinfo.in is my domain name.
If you don’t have already got ideas, use your name, or consider something short, catchy and shareable.
If you’ve got previously registered a website and need to use it for this new site, enter it on the proper . (Don’t worry, it won’t mess things up to enter it here. It only identifies your Bluehost account for now.) If you don’t have already got one, enter your required domain on the left.
Step 5: Design & use your blog!
Congratulations! You’re the proud owner of a self-hosted WordPress site. Before diving in, I recommend making these tweaks to your settings:
- Change your permalinks.
- Never keep admin as username, change it to something else.
- Activate your domain. If you select a replacement domain in Step 4, find the acceptable welcome email and click on the button inside to finish the activation process.
- Change your domain from HTTP to HTTPS.
