You may be interested in starting your own blog. Blogging is a wonderful creative outlet, a great hobby, a great place to meet like-minded people, and it can be a source of income for you. Blogging is all about finding an audience and writing with that audience in mind. EVERYONE has a blog in them. EVERYONE has something they can blog about. It can be a skill, talent, life experience, ANYTHING.
Welcome to the complete resource that you need to start YOUR OWN BLOG!
You may have an idea about what you want to blog about? Or you know you want to start a blog but you just don’t know what to blog about? EVERYONE has something they can blog about. I will repeat that – EVERYONE. Everyone has something going on in their lives, some life experience, some knowledge that can be blogged about and find an audience for.
It is so easy to start a blog yourself. Honestly – if you are daunted by the idea, believe me – it is just so easy. I knew absolutely nothing about blogging when I started out. NOTHING.
Here is my step by step guide to every aspect of starting your own blog.
Step One: Decide what to blog about
Do you have a skill that you can share with others? Do you want to help others? You can even learn about something and blog about your journey doing so.
Step Two: Choose a Hosting company
You will need to choose a hosting company to host your blog. There are many hosting companies available. These include Big Scoots, Bluehost, Siteground, and more. Run a Google search for hosting companies. Read reviews from others regarding their experiences with certain hosting companies.
Step Three: Choose a Domain Name
A word about domain names. This is the name you are going to call your blog, so you need to come up with a name you like and love. If your domain name is not available, try something close to it.
Step Four: Choose a Theme for Your Blog
There are many themes available from many companies. Check out blogs you like and discover what theme they are using. Search the web for themes you like.
You can monetize your site for income as soon as you start your blog. Monetizing your blog can be done in many ways – advertising, becoming an affiliate for companies (including Amazon), selling courses and e-books you write/design.
Monetizing your site is not essential, and you may choose not to monetize it. But monetizing your site will give you more freedom to do more for your blog and your readers.
