How to create your blog?
There are two most popular blogging platforms: Blogger and WordPress. Blogger offers you to create websites easily but there are a lot more customisation in WordPress where you can do anything you want.
I would also recommend you to use wordpress for creating your blog because it is really necessary for the blog to be converting so that it can help you to create an impact with beautiful design and layouts.
Creating a blog is creating your own brand but initially you do not need to have more investment in purchasing expensive hosting services and themes.
To launch your website you need a domain name and hosting. There are so many domain name and hosting provider services from where you can buy. Sign up for Bluehost it provides you hosting services for $2.95 per month with a free domain name for 1 year – I recommend trying the best deal in buying your domain name and hosting.
The steps of creating blog with wordpress is listed below:
- Choosing the nitch
- Selecting your domain name
- Choosing the best wordpress hosting
How Can You Find A Profitable Niche For Your Blog?
Choosing the nitch is the first step to start a profitable blog. Blog niche is the field or topic where you would like to write blog post on. Blogging can be fun if you choose your nitch wisely because it is required to be consistent and enjoy the topic to write on.
Your nitch can be anything like learning to code, digital marketing, business tips, travel guidance, jobs, cooking and exams etc.
What is a good nitch?
Before starting the blog you should care these 4 tips to choose a good nitch:
- Your interest and knowledge
- Monthly searches
- Business value
- Expansion opportunity
So it is important for you to start your blog on the topic that you really enjoy, you should have knowledge and skill to entertain audience for a long time and can write many topics generate value for them.
People generally miss guided and choose a nitch which is trending and more profitable but they have not their knowledge and interest in that domain.
Let’s suppose you love cooking and you have done well in this field and you can build your audience base in this industry by providing them value.
Then your next step would be choosing the domain name.
How To Choose A Domain Name And Hosting For Your Blog?
A domain name is the name of your website/blog. Choose a short domain name it should be easy to type, pronounce and remember. A domain name has it’s own value shows the reliability of your blog.
Avoid boring names and choose a domain name that makes users to click on your blog because the domain name is your trademark. It shows what type of services you are providing and it must be actionable.
