People say blogging’s dead. Are they right?
"Blogging is dead" is something people have been saying for years now. it's hard to Even when the idiom first appeared, Pinpoint. There have been a number of blogging killers. The first was social media, Twitter and Facebook, then YouTube, live streaming services and who knows what other. but! The data says otherwise. Raw data has an advantage, it does not favor. Let me show you two things: 1. According to WordPress.com, over 400 million people watch over 21 Arab blog page every month. On top of that, users create around 90 million new Posts and about 50 million new comments every month. 2. WordPress - undoubtedly the biggest blog and website engine of them all - now Over 30% rights to all websites. Then, they are all websites. 13 then no. Blogging is far from dead. "When I learned how to start a blog, can I turn that blog into a business and make money from it?" this "
Yes of course
Check out what peoples have done here with this blog. When we started, the blog was making $ 0, quite a lot. But within ~ 3 years, we Increased it to ~ $ 20,000 per month in revenue.
How does it make money and how have we achieved it? We will meet her later On. But I would just like to say that it took some trial and error to reach that level. We try to boil It is all in this guide and presents you with a structured, systematic approach.
Without further ado… the first step to start your own blog?
Deciding What to Blog About:
Figuring out what to do about a blog / choosing a good topic for your blog can be challenging.
Most people find it difficult. First of all, the challenge is to come up with new stuff that you want to write about,
Which in itself is not always the most direct thing. But then there's something else Deep in the dark… self-doubt.
"I am not a writer ... why would anyone listen to me ... I am not an expert ... there are many moreEligible people writing about this already… I don't know what about the blog… ”
Well, first, do you need to be a great writer to start a blog? The answer is no.People read blogs for many reasons, and being a skilled writer can help, it is not need. Some bloggers actually read due to their unique writing style, this is only a fraction Of the market. We just hear about those bloggers more often. But the iceberg of blogging is much larger than that. All belong to different people There with varying degrees of life path and writing skills. To an extent, writing skills is not important in blogging. If you can talk, you can blog. Also, you do not have to be an expert in the field (of your subject matter). It helps, but, again, it is is not needed. Think cooking blog. You don't have to be Gordon Ramsay to run Successful one. All you need most is some delicious dishes that people enjoy and serve. Able to repeat.
Now, that said, let me share with you the most important rule of choosing a topic Blog…
Challenge #1: How to pick a blog topic that’s right for you personally
The key rule when figuring out what to blog about is to focus on something that you are interested in. And
“interested” is the keyword here. You don’t need to be an expert, you don’t need to have any special skill regarding the topic, and you don’t need to be extremely passionate about it from day one. What you do need is an honest interest in something. That interest is going to fuel you through the initial months as you write your first posts and get more and more educated about your field. So do some brainstorming and come up with a list of topics that are interesting to you and that you’d like to learn more about. The author’s own curiosity is often enough to carry a blog through its first months of existence.
The benefits of picking a blog topic that fits you:
● ???? You can make a name for yourself in a field that you care about.
● ???? Connect with likeminded people.
● ???? ⚕ Learn or improve your skills.
● ???? Potentially make money and start a career.
● ⏲ It’s going to be easier to create content regularly.
However, be specific here. Don’t make your topic something like “cooking” or “cars” or anything
similarly broad. The more niche, the better. Although it seems counterintuitive (“broader means
more readers, right?”), starting in a narrow niche is often better. Narrow niches give you
specialization and possibly instant audience from day one. Which brings me to.
Challenge #2: How to find out if there’s audience for your future blog
Choosing something that you are comfortable blogging about There is only one side of the coin about. The other is To make sure people are going there Interested in reading it. This is where some good market ol market research comes from In the picture. In simple words, this is where you Need to check what else is on the web
The topic you have chosen.
Wonder what about the blog? First, note the following:
● Are there any blogs in the niche that already cater to similar audiences?
● Are any of those blogs popular enough – with more than 10,000 subscribers?
● Are there any popular Facebook pages on this or similar topics?
● Can you point out at least a handful of influencers in the niche?
● Does anyone advertise in Google when you search for the niche’s main buyer
● Are there any books on Amazon that cover the topic in some capacity and have more
than a dozen reviews?
● Are there any people asking questions about it on Quora?
If that’s a “yes” on all of the above then you’ve probably found yourself a good blog topic. But if
at least one of them is a “no” then it’s back to the drawing board. “Why?” Well, it’s a counterintuitive thing, but in the blogging space, the more blogs there are on a given topic, the easier it is to start another one.
The existence of other blogs is only proof that there are people passionate about the topic. Don’t be the sole blogger writing about underwater basketball or something. One thing you’ll probably find out is that even though there’s a seemingly infinite number of possible blog topics, it turns out that only a handful of them make sense and are actually of interest to online audiences. Here’s what to blog about –
some popular categories of topics:
● Real Estate
● Health and fitness
● SEO and marketing
● Business and money
This is based on data from Google plus factoring in various research done by third parties. You
can do a similar experiment, just google something like: allintitle:YOUR-BLOG-TOPIC
PRO TIP: At this stage in your mission to figure out what to blog about, you should probably
pick 2-5 blog topics that resonate with you the most, and then further narrow it down to just one
based on your overall comfort with it and the size of the potential audience.
Chapter 3: Choosing a Blogging Platform
WordPress is used by more than 30% of all websites. Making it the prime candidate for the best blogging platform award. Again, that’s ALL websites.
● WordPress is nearly 10 times more popular than the no.2 on the list – Joomla.
● WordPress holds 60% of the CMS (content management system) market.
● WordPress is used by some of the biggest brands … BBC, Wired, Time Magazine,
14 The Rolling Stones, Beyonce, New York Post, Harvard University, Jay Z, all use
WordPress to power their websites and blogs.
Some of WordPress’ strong points:
● ???? It’s free.
● ???? It’s open source.
● ????It’s powerful and extremely extensible.
● ???? It’s fast.
● ???? It can be customized to suit your needs hand-in-glove.
That being said, there’s this one confusing thing about WordPress. Namely, its dual nature.
Basically, anyone looking for “WordPress” on Google is likely to end up either at WordPress.org
Chapter 3: Setting Up a Domain, Hosting, and WordPres
The no.1 thing you learn about how to set up a blog is that no blog can exist without a domain name (its unique address on the internet) and a web server (its home on the internet). Then, there’s the wildcard – the third element – WordPress
Now you need to setup Domain & Hosting then install Wordpress on it, to setup you blog websit. its very easy and you get all detail video in YouTube.
To make this happen, go to Hostinger, – the hosting platform that we recommend based on its
positive reviews across the web and our own tests. Once there, pick a hosting plan. In most cases, the cheapest option – StartUp – will be enough:
Just getting started with WordPress? Here’s how to use the interface Note. If you’re already familiar with the WordPress interface, feel free to skip to the next chapter. WordPress has evolved quite a bit since its humble beginnings in 2003. What started as a simple blogging platform, is now capable to run any type of website, no matter how big or small. However, this richness of features can also be slightly problematic for someone who’s just getting to know how to set up a blog with WordPress for the first time.
So here’s your in-the-nutshell guide through the WordPress user interface and some of the key features.
First off, most of your interaction with WordPress will happen through the admin panel which you can access by going to yoursite.com/wp-admin. After logging in, you’ll see something like this.
