First thing before starting a blog is choosing a perfect niche for yourself,what does niche means? Am talking about the blogging interest you have,what you want to blog about.
They are many things to consider before choosing a blogging niche:
- Do you have passion in this topic?

- How competitive is this niche ?
I advice young upcoming bloggers to always blog what they have passion about (their daily life) writing about what you like will always be easier compared to writing something else.
Blogging requires long writing and researches, writing a story line that you know or have interest in is very easy and sweet.
Also you have to consider niche that will earn you enough money online through blogging, our main purpose of venturing into blogging is to make money, so choose an niche that will fetch you money easily.
Some niche are very competitive examples is entertainment niche. I won’t advice an upcoming blogger to venture into entertainment niche because its very competitive and requires lots of time,
Some blogging niche available for you:
- Entertainment = news,gossip,music,video
- Sport = football news, livescores
- MMO = make money niche
- Fashion E.t.c
Choose a Blog Platform to operate
The next step after choosing your niche is choosing your blog platform to operate on, we have to popular blogging platform which i will recommend to newbies “WordPress and blogspot” this platforms is an online software that enables you create and maintain a blog. A blogging platform offers you an easy to use interface for posting content to your blog.
I advised you use self hosted WordPress for your blog as that is what am using currently.
Choose and buy website name and hosting
This stage you need to thoroughly search for a name for your website, you must choose name suitable for your niche, every website has its domain name and yours must have too. To do this log on to namecheap.com and search for available domain name for your website.
You will also have to buy hosting account where your website and data will be hosted, you should get it at about $25 yearly,you can buy this on name cheap too.
Install WordPress and design website
Once you are done buying domain name and hosting, the next is to install WordPress,install theme of your choice. This themes comes with designs, so you don’t need to street yourself in design, all you need to do is to install the theme and do some minor editing to your taste.
Start writing/publishing post
Blogging is all about writing,writing what you have interest on and what will benefit your readers, once your blog is set,now is to start the main work which is writing and publishing posts, make your post to be lengthy,catchy and educative for your readers.
Avoid copy and paste because it will affect your blog ranking in a long run. Make sure all your posts are well researched and unique. If you cant write very well kindly employ writers who will handle your writing works.
Build your blog seo
Seo means search engine optimisation,this practice exposes your blog to popular search engines like google and you gain enough visitors and traffic. As a newbie in blogging getting a traffic is one of the most challenging aspects, your audience is what will convert to incomes/money. Doing this yourself is not easy so you must employ and seo expert to handle the job for you.
