What are the benefits of blogging?

It is a great way to express your thoughts and opinions, connect with others around the world, and make money. It also can be an outlet for you to share your life with others and to get feedback on what you have to say from people who read your blog.

Blogging is good for your career. A well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field. Penelope Trunk

It is a great way to meet new friends and potential business partners as well. One of the best ways is through different conferences where you can network with other bloggers. It also helps you stay updated on the latest information related to your industry or field of interest.

How to start your Blog in 5 minutes

You can start your blog in minutes following these five easy steps:

1. Select your Blog’s Name

The name of your blog is what readers will first see. It should accurately represent the topics you will be writing about – regardless of your name, your business, your creativity. A combination of words, or something else. Your blog niche is a common topic where you will focus your content around.

Examples include topics such as lifestyle, education, psychology, tourism, technology, food, fashion, and more. Posting a word or two that clearly shows what your content is about, within the name of your blog will be very helpful to your future blog readers.

2. Find a blog hosting company

There are many different blog hosting companies to choose from. Ask your friends and family which one they like best and why and do not forget online sources to consult with. When choosing, consider the following things:

  • What is the pricing?
  • How much bandwidth does it offer?
  • How much storage do you get with this service?
  • What are the add-ons offered?

3. Determine your niche (what content you will post on your blog)

This can be anything from personal experience to professional expertise. It often requires consistency, so try to come up with a posting schedule that suits your needs. If you want to include a picture or video, you’ll need to save it beforehand since uploading files is not available on WordPress blogs. You can also choose whether or not you want comments on your posts and who will be able to leave them (all viewers or only registered users).

  • Write an introductory paragraph using the title and subtitle fields (optional)

Try to use catchy words in the introduction keeping in mind to be relevant to your title and focussing on the subtopics as well.

6 tips for great posts

  • Be Yourself

Don’t try and be someone you’re not. It is about sharing your thoughts, opinions, and life with others. So if you want to blog about fashion and be a female, then blog about fashion. If you want to blog about tech and be a male, then go for it! The more comfortable you are with your topic the better your content is going to be.

  • Focus on What You Know

It’s important to know what you’re talking about when it comes to writing a blog. You don’t have to know everything there is to know to write an amazing post, but the more information and knowledge of the topic you have the better! If there’s something you aren’t sure of or don’t feel like you can do justice, just leave it out!

  • Create a Schedule

You need to set up a schedule for yourself so that you are consistent with posting new content. People must come back each day or week to read what is new on your site so make sure you keep them coming back by having new content posted consistently.

  • Be Authentic

Be yourself when writing your posts and always stay true to who you are as a blogger! Don’t try too hard or edit too much when writing because this will lead people away from reading all of your posts in the future since they won’t enjoy reading them anymore because they don’t think they are genuine.
