1. Choosing a topic
To start a blog, first, you have to ask yourself if you have the proper knowledge to share it with others. Choose a topic that you are best at. Choosing a topic is one of the most important to start a blog. The topic can be anything as long as you are good at that topic. It can be about health, sports, study and many more.
Do not choose a topic by seeing the traffic volume. If you choose a topic that you are not good at it will be the most regretful for you. Many people choose a topic randomly by seeing the traffic volume and end up with no success in blogging. It’s because they just copy the post from others or write an article about a topic that already have so many posts. So, you should always choose a topic that you are good at and you should always focus on writing an article on a keyword that did not have many posts. If you are good at any topic then you can always write a post that is different from others. Make sure to add proper keywords on the article you are writing because it will help you rank in search engines.
2. Create a routine
Before creating a blog first check that if you have proper time which you can spend on blogging. Because in blogging you have to give proper time to analyzing keywords and creating articles. How many articles you should write per day depends on you which topic you choose and how much time you spend on blogging.
For a blogger, there is no holiday. If you have lots of time you can write some extra articles. Because sometimes you don’t have time to write an article. So, if you write an extra article on a holiday, you can always publish it later.
Create a routine for blogging. Give at least 2 hours daily in blogging. If possible post regularly, it means if you want to post 7 articles per week then you should post it every day, do not post all the articles in one day. Because if you post all articles in one day then the other day will be a gap and it will decrease your traffic. Posting regularly, help you to build trust and also help you to rank on search engines.
3. Choose a good domain name
Choosing a good domain name is important for bloggers. Because it will help you with both increase rank in search engines and getting more traffic. You should choose a good domain name that is somehow related to your topic. Like this is a blog about blogging and you can see the domain name (bloggbuddy.com) which is related to blogging. You should also choose a domain name that is related to your topic and make the domain name as short as possible.
It is true that finding a good domain is hard nowadays. But you have to find a domain name related to your topic. You can add some more related words to your domain like I add gg on my domain. You have to be trickier to choose a domain.
Buying a domain name nowadays not so hard. There are many websites available that are offering the user to buy the domain at the cheapest price like Godaddy and Namecheap. You can also choose Bluehost, they give free domain for the 1st year with hosting.
Choosing a good hosting will help you to create a good blog. Many users randomly just choose hosting provider but later they regret. Because many hosting providers didn’t give a good support system. You have to choose hosting provider carefully. I suggest you to choose Bluehost. Because it will give you better performance and they have a good support system. You can also use their managed WordPress hosting. And they also give free domain for the 1st year with hosting.
If you are new on blogging then you can choose hosting at a cheap price but if you got so much traffic then you have to move to good hosting with better performance. If you decide to create a blog in WordPress then there are many hosting providers who provide managed WordPress hosting, you can choose it. Because a managed WordPress hosting will be more secured and it will be easier to build a blog. And if you’re going to start a blog using Blogger then you don’t have to worry about hosting.
But if you want better performance and want to rank fast on Google or similar search engines then I suggest you choose WordPress. Because I personally use both platforms but I got better performance by using WordPress. In many ways, WordPress will give you better performance. In WordPress, you can find many useful plugins that will help you to rank on search engines faster.
5. Theme and Design
The design of a blog is very important. Because if your design is bad and not attractive then most of the users will leave the site without even reading the article. If you are using WordPress platform or Blogger platform you can find many free themes that will give you a simple but attractive look on your blog.
If you are using WordPress you will find many free themes with premium design. But I recommend you to use some premium theme. Because it will give you many features that are good for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Nowadays, you can find many WordPress premium themes at a cheap price.
Avoid outdated theme
Choosing a theme in WordPress is not easy. Because you have to find a theme that is not outdated. If you want to start with a free theme then you should choose an updated theme. Do not choose an outdated theme. If you choose outdated themes then after using it you may find that many plugins may not work with that theme. Also, an outdated theme may not good at SEO. So you should choose it carefully. If you want to start a blog in 2020, you can use themes like Newspaper or you can also use the Genesis framework.
You should choose a theme that is simple but attractive. Because a simple theme will load faster and your user will like it. Do make your theme too much colorful that it will look bad. Make the blog as simple as possible. Also, do not use adult ads because it will ruin your website design. But if your website is related to the adult topic then you can use adult ads but do not add too much adult ads.
