I always wanted to start a blog of my own since a long time back. But wasn’t sure how to get started. I wanted to share ideas with the world out there, on my own platform. And getting the right knowledge made me realize, it isn’t as tough as it looked like.
But, well, you’d be in good hands, I would be glad to share my experience with you guys and help you start a blog of your own within a couple of minutes. This post would be the best for you if you just want to get started with it.
Honestly, it is much more interesting and fun as I thought it would be.
I get to interact with the audience with my choice of words and it kind of fuels up my day, as satisfying as it gets.
Understanding and following the steps would help to get you started.
1.Get a niche(topic for your blog)
So to start writing, you need to make sure, what you’re writing about. I know you are thinking this is pretty obvious, but I’ll tell you that this is the only hardest part. You have to pick what are you passionate about the most.
There would be at least one thing that you’d be passionate about and someone from the audience would love to read the content you post. But remember, while choosing your niche, you have to make sure that you are passionate about it. Make sure you can write about it all the time and have a lot of information for the same. You don’t have to worry about whether the audience will like it or not as long as you’re being interesting. Remember that you are unique and you have your own story to share, if you place every word you share correctly, you can do miracles.
But anyway, as soon as you got your niche, you can jump to the next part, ie getting a domain name.
2.Get a domain name(Choose a name for your website)
Well, I’d call it the next hardest thing, getting a name for your blog.
You have to be quite careful while choosing one as this will be permanent and also will be your blog’s identity.
This can be pretty tricky as most of the names are already taken or booked and you are limited to a name with your niche.
A couple of things to keep in mind while choosing your domain, like the domain has to match your niche, the name should be defining your website, you should keep it short, simple and sweet, It should not be an imprison or be a clone name or be similar to another website.
These are not mandatory, but very vital and important points to be taken care of.
Once you get done with the domain name, you’re good to go.
3. Get a Hosting (A place on the www for the blog)
4. Get a platform to start blog (Your first post)
You got content, also got a name for your content, space for your content, but you don’t know how to place your content yet?
5. Grow and make connections
You got a platform along with you domain name and hosting. All you have to do is now build connections and keep an eye on your competitors. Competitors are no one but other people who have chosen the same niche as yours for their content. So you have to check out their blog, do a case study and know what they’re doing and how they’re doing.
You won’t be facing problems if you’re filled with passion about your niche already. All you got to do now is experiment and put in some work.
You have to learn and understand, how to structure a blog and your content, interact with your audience. There is no step-by-step procedure for this. But many tips and tricks I would suggest in my future blogs will help you through it. I bet you can do something productive and share vital information and create amazing content if you just kick-start your passion. And you can outdo a lot of people out there and stand out. All you have to do is pick-up the niche you thought of every time I mentioned “PASSION” in this article. Good luck!
