      How to Start a Blog? Easy Steps for Beginners!

      So now you have already decided to start a blog! That is actually great as blogging gives you tons of advantages not only for your personal growth, but even for monetary values. Nowadays, blogging has become a career for some and it has changed their lives forever. If you are wondering how to start a blog, then you are just on the right spot. This site will give certain tips on blogging for beginners.


      Basic Steps to Start a Blog


      1.    Decide on Your Niche


      Basically, you'll have to decide what to blog about. You have to pick a certain niche or topic that you are very comfortable about or one that can easily gain audience. One of the reasons why most people consider writing as a career is the fact that they can make money while working at home. With this in mind, you need to choose a topic that can possibly gain a good number of audiences. For example, you can write about pets, travel destinations or any other subject that you enjoy and where you can be an authority.


      2.    Choose a Blogging Platform


      Writing prompts you to be creative, but all your creativity will go to waste if you don't pick the right blogging platform. One of the most common and probably the most popular platforms out there is WordPress. It is actually a great option especially for beginners. Nevertheless, it is important to note that WordPress offers two options; one is a free account where you'll end up having "MyBlog.wordpress.com" and the other one is a premium account where you'll end up having "MyBlog.com." If you want to give your audience an impression of professionalism, then the latter would be the better option.


      3.    Choose a Host


      Basically, a host gives your site a server space and allows your site to be searched and found on the internet. You can check out several web hosting sites including GoDaddy.com, BlueHost, SiteGround, HostGator and InMotion Hosting.


      4.    Pick a Domain Name


      Choosing a domain name is very important as this will be your web address and you will be presenting this address to your audience. Make your domain name effective and catchy so that it can be easily remembered. It would also help if your domain name encapsulates what your blog is all about.


      Congratulations! Now you are on your way to having your very own blog. Of course, there are many things you still need to learn. For example, you need to be very familiar with how WordPress works or any other blogging platform you choose. If you have already published your own blog, then you need to be very patient in adding new and high quality content to drive traffic to your site. The goal is not only to publish a website, but for your audience to keep coming back to your site. The success of a blog requires time, patience and effort thus you need to prepare yourself for all these.
