You want to start a blog, but thousands of ideas are running in your mind, right?
Well, you are not alone; it happens with everyone who starts a blog for the first time.
You might have the following questions in your mind:
- What topics am I planning to cover?
- What is the purpose of my blog?
- Have you thought of a name?
- Is it going to be a weekly or a daily blog?
- Do you have enough knowledge to write intensively about the subject matter?
Well, let me help you with this post. I’m going to some points that you need to keep in mind before starting a blog.
Let’s dive in:
#1. What to blog About – This is important and the first thing you need to consider before starting a blog.
You must clear in your mind that what you are going to cover in your blog is it business, social media, or relationship. It could be anything that you want, but I’d recommend you to blog only on topics that you are passionate about.
In other words, you love you talk, listen and think every time because this is the only way where you won’t feel bored when blogging.
#2. What to name of your blog – This shouldn’t be hard unless you make it. Most people spend too much time to choose a blog name. In fact, they spend weeks to find a name and the funny things they don’t find it even after spend too much time.
There are plenty of domain name generators that you can use to find your blog name. Here is a domain name guide that can help you find the perfect domain name.
My favourite tool is leandomainsearch.com it shows you various cool domain names that you can use for your blog.
#3. The fear of starting – Many people never start a blog just because they fear of failure. There is no point to fear of failure without starting.
Even if you fail, you will learn so many things. So don’t fear of failure and start blogging right away.
#4. The time commitment – Most people never start blogging just because of time commitment. Somehow even if they start, they never make it, or you can say earn.
Consistency is key in blogging. No matter how well you write if you are not providing information consistently, people will forget you soon.
#5. The financial investment – This is the primary reason people scare to start blogging. They don’t want to invest and try to make money.
That leads them to free blogging platforms, and after spending months, they stop writing because they are not making a single penny.
Let me tell you the truth.
Money attracts money. If you are serious about making money online, you’ll have to invest in your blog. Treat your blog as a business and invest in premium themes, plugins, and hosting.
Make a beautiful blog that appeals to users and publish great content; the money will automatically follow you.
#6. How to make money from blog – This is one common question I often hear from newbies, they don’t know how to make money from blog.
However, the answer to this question is pretty simple, and there are tons of way to make money from blogging.
Here are some ways to make money from blog:
- Affiliate marketing
- Sell online courses
- Sponsored post
- Write paid reviews
- Sell eBooks
Let’s roll it – You must be clear in your mind whatever you are going to do whether in life or blogging.
Make a plan before you start blogging. That said, have a plan is better than no plan.
Starting a blog is easy; all you need to have faith in you and your skills.
