How to Start Blogging if You are a Newbie

Apr 13th 2011 at 9:55 AM

So, you finally made up your mind to start blogging. Having solid intention to start is great for the beginning. In this stage you have probably chosen what will the main purpose of your blog be. It can be just your hobby or you can convert it to your online business, either way it is good to start with clear mind and goals.

I will try to address the question – how to start blogging if you a newbie with simple yet detailed tips. I do believe if you follow these tips starting will be much more easier.

Your Blog Niche

This is important. You need to set your target niche and always blog about it. This must be something that you are passionate about, where you can definitely consider yourself as enough experienced so that solve the visitors’ problems. Being useful is your key to constant traffic and success. So, think about it wisely.

Doing Some Homework

The next step should involve some research. If you are a complete newbie then you should have some idea what blogging is, how it works and who are there among the greatest bloggers. Doing some research will definitely help you gain some essential knowledge before making the first steps. It may look difficult and frustrating, but the knowledge gained during the research will help you on the long run. So do not underestimate this.

Choosing an Effective Domain

If you are quite serious about starting to blog and converting it to online business, then choosing the right domain is another important aspect of blogging. Many bloggers choose their names as domains and this is quite powerful branding tool. So, I recommend you to do the same if it is possible. The only downside of it may be if you decide to sell it in the future.

You can choose the eye catching name too which is related to your niche. Either way, think about as it is one of the most important things you need to consider before starting.

Reliable Hosting

You can of course host your blog with the free services like Blogger or WordPress, but you need to seriously think of a separate hosting for added security and reliability. There are fortunately many hosting companies which offer great services for little monthly payment. Hostgator is one of them to consider.

Blog Template

Your blog should be pleasant to the eye of your visitors, free from useless design elements and so on. You can of course buy a professional blog template but I advise to choose from freely available templates for starters. You can always switch to the paid one later. First you need to get some experience blogging, and any simple yet pleasant template will do at this stage.

Blogging Plan

Blogging should be treated as a job if you want to be successful. And every job needs a plan. You can set your own goals about blogging, bu remember that whatever you set up as a goal, you need to strictly follow it. Write down in a piece of paper what your blogging schedule will be. How many blog posts you are going to write in a day, week or month. How many blogs in your niche you are going to read per day. This should be treated seriously if you are keen enough to become a successful blogger.

Content is a King

This is the most difficult part in blogging, but it is not impossible. You need to learn to deliver useful and quality content for your visitors. Remember, people are coming to your blog in order to get answers to their questions or solutions to the problems. So you must always think of providing the content that will help people. That way you will retain your visitors for many years to come. Don’t try to write about the subject that you are not good at. people will notice it and they will not visit your blog again. Be yourself. Blog about what you know best. You will have to improve your knowledge too making some research about the common questions or problems that people seek to solve.

Being Consistent

This is one key to your success. You need to constantly post new fresh articles on your blog. That is one sure way to get higher page ranks by the search engines thus resulting in continuous flow of organic traffic. Just set up your goals as I mentioned above ans stick to that plan. Always have some blog posts handy in case you do not manage to write a new blog post. You may want to create new blog posts on weekends and save them as drafts. Either way try to be consistent from the beginning and do not break this rule.

Promote and be patient

Learn the easy and effective ways of promoting your blog posts through social networks, forums etc. Learn the SEO essentials and act accordingly. And remember that you will not become a professional blogger overnight. Everyone passes through hard time of blogging when many just quit. Your determination will highly benefit you on the long run. read the blog posts on motivation and see how other bloggers got to the point where they are now.
