Abc\'s Of Writing A Blog for Free

What is a Blog?

Blogging has become quite popular with many blog-sites popping up on a daily basis on a wide range of subjects. So, you may have heard about a blog, but wondering what is a blog? A blog is simply a personal website or web page in which the owner of the blog writes out opinions, reviews, stories or news on a regular basis. You can have opinions, facts, whatever you want.

Why do you want to Blog?

You want to create a blog if you want your opinion heard by your audience of friends, associates or customers. You could also create a blog if you are looking for a way to generate some additional online income.

Is it Easy to Setup a Blog?

It is extremely easy to setup a blog. WordPress, Blogger, Tumblr, Squarespace, Movable Type and TypePad are some of the blogging platforms that you can use. The most popular and my favourite is WordPress. There are so many templates and additional add-ins that you can download to customize your blog site. You can sign on with many of these platforms for free, although you will be limited by the content that you can add to the blog. For example, the Wordpress free platform will not allow you to place ads, custom domain name and mapping, and no support for VideoPress and custom design.

How do you Earn Income on a Blog?

You can earn additional income on a blog by offering products or services to the people who visit your blogsite. Once you have people coming to your blogsite and they click on an ad or an affiliate link that you have posted within your blog, you could be earning some commission income. This is the most popular reason why people are writing a blog. It is easier to setup than a regular website and blogging is more intuitive and personal, which is attractive to those who are seeking information.

To simply blog creation, you can learn by taking some lessons for free from one of the most popular programs available.

What do I Write on a Blog?

As the owner of a blog, you can write about anything. If you were a celebrity, you can write about your daily activities and you’ll have all of your fans waiting to see what you’ve been up to. For the majority of us, unless you have a large social circle, blogging on your personal activities may not be the best solution. There is Facebook, Google+ and Twitter where you can update what you’re up to.

The majority of blogs will have information and that purpose is to educate and inform those who you want as a target audience. For example, if you love dogs and you have been training dogs all of your life, you would write about dog training with various lessons and topics for your intended target audience. The topic on dog training is what we call a “Niche”. It could be based on your interests, passion or hobbies.

What is the Next Step?

The next step is to sign up to one of the platforms and start the process of configuring the way you want your blog to look like. This will take time and patience. Most likely, you will be thinking of how to earn additional income from your blog site. Since you are providing valuable information, you would like a return on your time. There will be a lot of experimentation, but I would recommend learning the basics and as your knowledge grows, you’ll be quite astonished at how far you have come to create your very own blog site.
