How do I start a Blog and Make Money online
Today I’m going to cover a topic that is sure to be of interest to those who want to become blogger (future blogger) or existing blog – from where to start a blog and make money online from blogging? But first have to to get some knowledge about blogging.
What is Blogging ?
According to Blogger.com :
“A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.”
Blogging in its simplest term is like : An online journal but much, much more powerful. Blogs (short for Web log) is a place where surfers can get up to the minute information on a topic or voyeur into someone’s life. Some blogs are nothing more than a daily glimpse into someone’s life, while others are so sophisticated, it’s hard to tell them apart from an online news service.
OK…Thats enough of theory ..Lets get to topic selection.
Pick Your Niche (Topic Selection)
Bit of a no brainer really, but to make money from blogging you are going to need a blog right… so, how do you choose what to write about? You can start a blog on anything under the Sun – from your daily activities to reviews about products, to discussion of ideas, to news about a person, to stories, photos, jokes and poetry. But, If you want to make money out of your blog, your topic must be useful to others. Only then they will come to your blog site and read your blogs.
Firstly, choose a topic which you: –
a) Know a bit about – as long as you are good at research you don’t have to be the world’s foremost authority to begin with, but you should have a decent base knowledge about your topic. If you are the world’s foremost authority… then even better!
b) Have a genuine interest in – if you pick a topic you have no interest in it will show in your content and you will quickly get bored before the money starts rolling in.
c) Has a market – it’s going to be difficult to monetise a topic that no one except you is interested in, so make sure that there will be an audience for your blog
Wherever possible think broad, i.e….
Now you have learnt basics of blogging and have selected a topic; starting a blog is easy but in order to be able to successfully monetize the blog, you need to establish the blog.
