DECIDE ON YOUR BLOGGING PLATFORM

Now it is time to choose what platform to start blogging with and on your cards, you have blogger which is served by google or WordPress.

They have their own varying distinctions, you can check my article on both here – blogger and WordPress – which platform is better.

There are other blogging platforms but the two mentioned above are top of the league, make your choice from them.

NICHE AND KEYWORD

The main idea about a blog is that the owner is vast on a particular field or niche and thus wants to render service by providing insightful content, this is important if you want to make profit from your blog.

Your niche could be educational and it means all your keywords should relate to education, you understand right?

The keyword makes it easy for search engines to index your blog and thus you get organic traffic for free from google. And this indexing is based solely on the niche and key word structure of the contents.

An essential tool here to get better keyword is the Google Keyword Tools, it is essential and helps to guide you on what to blog on.

SOCIAL NETWORK

I do not think I really need to hammer on this, with your social network friends and followers you already have an audience you can work on especially those on Facebook and twitter, just continue to share all your posts to them and you can even tell your friends through word of mouth.

This will serve as your first source of traffic till Google indexes your blog.

TAKE THE FIRST STEP

After you have checked through and ticked your bucket list, it is important to put them all to work, from getting the domain, to setting up of your first blog to posting of your first content and sharing to your social networks for your first simple organic traffic.

TIME

Time is the most important and a paramount factor in blogging. If you do not have enough time to spare you can also as well forget the intention to go into blogging.

You ha e to write and post contents continually as it is this consistency that makes you a good blogger and without time you can do none of that, so try to always put some hours aside to maintain and post contents on your blog and try to build a relationship with the readers and subscribers too.

CONCLUSION

Just get to work.
