Guide to Getting Your Blog Online


1. Pick a niche or topic you want to blog about!

When selecting a topic that will be blogging about you need to consider several factors or you will end up giving up on your site before you really get going.  

Pick a Niche

I suggest putting a list together of topics and niches you find interesting enough for you to develop a site around.  Now go through the list and start brainstorming ideas surrounding each option and see which one provides the most initial creation of sub-topics for you.

You can also do some research on your favorite topics by many keywords research tools is free.
I advise you to go through the Google Keywords Planner tool which is totally free and the best tool.

2. How do you make a blog?

To make a blog, First, make the content strategies in your mind, i.e whats topic you will be covered in your blog, do some small research via Keyword Planner tools, like Google keywords planner that shows you a basic idea about your topics that how the user search those topics on search engines, and how much user go with that topic i.e. how much traffic on those topics.

After doing that create a blog, but where?
If you are a beginner and want to start free, you go with Google Blogger, This is totally free.
But if you want some premium features, you can go with WordPress, this is also free but some features are paid.
  • Create your blog name that is relevant to your blog.
  • Choose any best subdomain provided by that platform, and start designing your blog like the theme, layout, menu, etc.
  • Start writing content on your blog that's are related to your niche.
  • When your blog has 10-15 posts then purchase a custom domain from any platform and setup with your blog.
  • Then submit your site to Google Search Console and wait for indexing, It may take at least 7 days.
  • And when some traffic starts coming from google you may go for your website monetization like AdSense.

3. How do I choose a domain name?

Your domain name is going to be how your site is identified and found on the web.  Finding a perfect name can be difficult so you need to follow some simple guidelines so you select a solid name.  

One of the biggest reasons to select a paid domain as opposed to a free blogging platform is so you can have control of your site address and content. And your website address becomes user engaging so it gives good CTR/ Conversions.
  • Don't over complicate your domain name. Shorter is better.
  • Memorable and easy to spell.  Don't want confusing or random names people won't remember.
  • Keep it focused on your topic.  If your blog is about cooking don't have your name focused on shopping.
  • Try your best to stick to a .com convention or .net if you can't get your.com version.
  • Avoid using trademarked names.  Sports teams, products, companies, etc.  You don't want to develop a site and lost it due to a trademark issue.
  • With the number of domains registered the odds of finding a perfect name might be a bit slim.  One word dictionary terms are probably already gone, but think of catchy names, your own name if you want to create a brand, combine a couple of words together, add something before or after a word you like.

There are many tools used by web developers to research and select domain names, but that is a very large topic that involves research and digging.

I will cover some of these options on a separate page dedicated to tools used when you get more serious about creating sites.

Conclusion

What does it cost to start a blog?

That totally depends on yourself. You can also start your blog with no investment, totally free.

Cost to start a blog


If you buy a domain name - it found around $10 - $15 for one year.

For Web Hosting - Ranges from $3 to $10 a month with lower prices coming with long term agreements. Most web hosts offer a 14 - 30-day money-back guarantee if you aren't pleased with the service or if you just change your mind.

Premium Theme - If you decide you want to go with a slightly more advanced or unique theme you can look into thousands of paid options ranging from a few dollars to a few thousand.  There is no need to do this when you are getting started, but good to know down the line if you ever want to get a bit more unique with your site.

In total, you can get started in your first year for around $50.  That is a very small investment to make in yourself and the potential to create a nice business for yourself.
