People have been blogging for more than a decade. These blogs range from personal diaries to science fiction. Blogging is not new & exciting like vlogging. But if you search for an advice or an answer in any search engines, chances that the results that are on top are mostly blog posts is high. So while vlogging & snap-chatting might be the hottest thing, nothing has been able to replace the value of a blog.
It’s never too late to getting started with blogging. The key is to write about your unique point of view or something that is worth reading. If you are consistent you could eventually add an extra source of income.
Getting started might seem daunting, but if you break down the process, you’ll realize it’s not that hard. Here is a basic list of the steps to getting started:
- Choose a topic:This is the most important step. While you can blog about your life, writing about niche topics can help you gain popularity much faster. Some general topics are product reviews, DIY guides, travel diaries, etc.
- Register a Domain:Branding is everything and after you find the topic you want to write about the next step is choosing a name for your blog. Having a domain name with high recall value will help you in the long run.
- Setup up a blog:There are now many applications & platforms that you can use to write a blog. Choosing the simplest or the most popular is always the best way to go.
- Write your first blog post: Once everything is setup and you publish your first post, the final step would be to share it with the world. Email a link to your friends & family, share it on your social profiles and start planning for your next post.
