Blogging is a website that is focussed on content writing, and any theme or topic can be used. A comment section is important since it allows correspondence from your readers. This type of interaction between the reader and the blogger is one of the main benefits and allows the sharing of ideas. What opens the door to making money is the loyalty and trust of the readers.
One of the biggest misconceptions of blogging is that you must have great writing skills, it’s not true since most individuals read blogs to get a perspective on the subject and therefore a conventional and informal style is used by most bloggers. What is most important is to have a passion for your topic, bloggers don’t need to be experts although loving the topic makes the start of a blog easier and at the same time keep readers interested.
The main reasons for anyone starting a blog are the following:
• To make money from home
• To share their story or passion with others
• Recognition for their business or themselves
• Finding a community and connecting with others
Six Steps in Starting a Blog:
• Choose a name for your blog, something descriptive is always more catchy
• Once you have the title get your blogging online by registering it and getting hosting
• Choose one of many free templates and customise it
• The fun part is writing your first blog and then to post it
• Promote your blog to ensure more people start reading it
• To make money from your blog, you can select from many options to monetise it
Picking a blog name is much easier once you have decided on a topic, which could be any life experience, passion, hobby or a blog about you. Once you have found your topic, your blog’s title should be descriptive and often it works better to have a few words instead of one. Choose words that would attract attention, if it’s a food blog use words such as meals, recipes, or yummy foods. In personal blogs use your name, for example, Mikes Magic Blog, or Blogging with Mike.
Once the name is confirmed it is time to choose a domain, which could be a .net, .org or .com and in registering it remove the spaces so Mikes Magic Blog would become mikesmagicblog.com and remember to check if that domain is available. Select a host and start having fun in creating a site that offers great visuals to go with your blogging style. Once your blog attracted a large online audience, advertisers will contact you, asking for an opportunity to advertise and it will be time to make some cash from something you enjoy doing from home.
