How to Start a Blog Today

Let’s dig into the topic and uncover the very secrets of blogging and earning money online the legitimate way using this medium.

Types of Blogging Platform

Basically, there are two popular blogging platforms i.e blogger.com and WordPress. Blogger is owned by Google. We are starting this series of how to become a blogger with the blogger platform powered by Google.com.

 If in the past you have been terrified about the tasks involved in starting a blog and making money online or you have heard so many big talks here and there about blogging then fear no more

 I’m glad to tell you that it’s not as hard as you imagined or you’ve been fed with. Blogging is as simple as anything. When I started blogging I didn’t know much but had recently come in contact with an entrepreneurship newspaper that mentioned the prospects of this business and my hungry mind couldn’t wait to venture. 

Guess what I learned on the job. I didn’t have the luxury of being taught how to blog from the very start. If I can be successful at it then anybody can achieve success in this line of business.

Steps to Start Blogging

Now to begin your make money online career through blogging let’s get the steps started. Three basic things you’ll be needing.

1. A domain name

2. A Web Host

3. A Niche for your blog

1. A domain name. This is the address of your blog. This is the name people are going to search your blog or website with. It usually starts with www. Then the domain name .com in my case my domain name is www.gidisblog.com; Usually you have to pay to have a domain name as the example I just gave. 

Depending on the size of your pocket you can decide the number of years you want to pay. Different registrars exist examples are GoDaddy, Namecheap, whogohost, domain.com, google, etc. 

Prices may range from 0.99$ to 13$ for one year depending on the registrar. It is important to know that domains can end with other initials like co.uk, .website, .info, .xyz, etc. 

So you might consider spending a few bucks to get yourself a domain name. It is important to get a name early to prevent others from stealing the name of your site and registering it before you simply because you failed to acquire the domain name early enough. 

This kind of person will buy off your domain name and put it for resale at outrageous rates. I know you must have searched for one beautiful domain only for the price to return very hug and you cowardly abandon the chase.

 If the resources to get a domain name is not available you can opt for a free .blospot provided by the Google platform. This cost nothing to get but must be in the format of your blog name.blogspot.com. The disadvantage of this is that people can easily tell is a free subdomain and tend to misjudge the blogger for being unserious.

2. A Host. Think of your website as a house, the name is the address, and web hosts provide a house for your website data and any other information you update on your blog. Depending on how much you are willing to spend the hosting can be metered, higher plans are more costly and have more features.

 It is not a must you must pay for web hosting to start from. You can choose to host your blog on a blogger platform even with a custom domain.

3. Pick a Niche. A  niche is an area you intend to concentrate on, to succeed in this business it is advisable to avoid being a jack of all trades. 

You can choose to write on entertainment, news, Weight loss, technology, Business, blogging, Affiliate Marketing, Yoga. etc. Each of these areas mentioned represents a niche. 

At first, you are tempted to become a jack of all but that is not the ideal thing. This will make it more stressful for you and you’ll be less productive, imagine having to source information from every Tom, Dick, and Harry simply because your blog touches every aspect of life and need extra effort on your part to serve useful information.

If you have taken the above 3 steps into consideration and resolve to work on the blogger platform you can get it started right away.
