What is Blog? How to start blogging?
So, what is a blog, how can we create one, and most importantly how can we start to earn from our blog??? These are some of the most important questions whose answers we should know before starting a blog.
In layman’s language, a blog is a personal website. Like previously people used to maintain a daily diary at the end of every day, about that day, how it was. Likewise now day’s people used to blog everything on their personal website or blog.
Where they write about their entire daily routine, how the day was when they had their breakfast, lunch, dinner, etc. And also whom they met and in short the way that particular day passed all things in detail. But not every person has the courage to write everything publicly where anyone can read about your personal life in just some clicks using the World Wide Web.
Only some courageous people can only do that. But now day’s people use the blog to share their knowledge about the things they are passionate about or their hobbies or to update you with the current news or technical stuff. People also use the blog to earn money by blogging.
A blog is a short form of weblog. As we were previously using notes and a pen to write our daily routine but now day’s we take the help of the web to do the same so it is called a weblog.
We all have an inner voice which we want to be heard by others, but we don’t speak in front of random people expecting a positive response from them, so in my view blog plays a crucial role here as we can post anything we want and if a person is interested enough in your blog they will read otherwise they will not.
Likewise, if I want to share any knowledge regarding tech, computer tricks or tips, or related to news, I can post that regardless of anyone’s interest. The person interested in the above topics will eventually read my blog. So this way blog works.
How to start a blog?
Anyone having a computer system or laptop can easily start a blog. If you can spend some money on the initial stage, then you can go for your domain name and buy a suitable domain name that will best suit your selected niche.
Before starting any blog it’s better to first pick a niche you are passionate about. If you start a blog today on any random topic eventually you will lose your interest in writing. In that case, if you have picked a niche you are passionate about then you can write as many as blogs you want.
If you are planning to earn really good money from the blog then you can think about microblogging.
Now the question is what is a microblog?
Microblogging is a form of blogging where we blog about any micro-niche. For example, if we start a website on Digital Marketing, then that is a blog where we can write about SEO, SEM, SMO, PPC all the things related to Digital Marketing.
But in the same case if we start our website on Instagram Marketing, then that will be a micro-niche. Micro-niche blogs are usually in-depth blogs about particular micro-niche.
The domain is your address in this Digital World. There are many domain name providers out there like Godaddy, BigRock. As we need a physical address to go to any ones home. Likewise, by using the domain name, anyone can access your blog from anywhere in the World.
While choosing any domain name it is better to choose a domain name that is related to your selected niche. If your targeted keyword is in the domain name then that will help you in ranking better in SERP.
And one of the most important things is to try to take a .com domain name if you are planning for traffic from all over the world. If you are planning to target any particular country then you can take domain with that country extension like for the USA is .us or for the UK is .uk.
As the domain name is your address to reach out to your blog. Hosting is like the home, where we use to keep all our data. The data we need access to files, images, etc. When we try to access the website, it goes to our hosting account and fetches all the data anyone request for and shows it on our browser. There are many hosting companies like Hostgator, Godaddy.
There are also some free options rather than these paid options to create a blog. One of those options is Blogger, which is a Google product, which provides free blogs. Using which one can create their own blog and start blogging for free. And another good option that provides free blogging is WordPress.
How to create a free blog and start earning
To create a free blog in Blogger or WordPress, first of all, you need a Gmail account. Login to your Gmail account and click on blogger in the Google product section and select Blogger and select your account and then give an appropriate domain name, which you want to be your website name.
Every time try to choose a domain name, which is somehow related to your selected niche in which you are planning a blog. Few things that are very important are a blog, content, and proper SEO.
By using Blogger and WordPress anyone can create a blog for free. And after writing 10-15 good articles you can apply for Google Adsense and can earn money from the blog. Try to write good in-depth articles that will help your reader gain some knowledge. So if anyone comes to your article he/she can get all in-depth knowledge about the particular topic.
