How To Start A Blog
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Blogs have become one of the easiest and successful ways for people to express their views. Through a blog, you can promote your work, lifestyle, ideas, and even political view..A blog is also commonly used as a mean of making money by selling your products or becoming another seller's affiliate.

Blogs are easy to use, I created this guide to show you how exactly you can start your very own blog.

1. Blog theme:

Think of why are you creating this blog. If you were doing it for making money, think of things you like the most and choose one of the topics you know you can talk about.

2. Choose a blog service provider:

There are lots of blogging service providers which you can find online. I recommend you to use Blogger. It is very easy to create.

Once you choose which provider to use, start creating your blog using it's instructions.

3. Your first post:

You will need regular posts to update your blog and attract the attention of search engines to give your post higher ranks which will attract more traffic to your blog and gain you more money at the end.

What if you are confused about what to write? Go to Google keyword tool and search for the theme of your blog in the keyword search box, you will find lots of words that you can start with. Beside each word, there is several determinates that can guide you like global monthly searches. If one of the words has one million global monthly searches, this means it a good idea to write about.

Choose one of the keywords and start writing about it. This shouldn't be a problem cause we already agreed that the blog will be about one of your interests. Write whatever comes in your mind, don't make grammar and spelling mistakes stop you. The post should be properly written, but it doesn't have to be perfect. Write as if you were talking to friends.

4. Monetize your blog:

Blogs can be a great way to earn money with no big effort. There are different methods to do that:

Google Adsense:

You can add a Google search box to your blog and every time someone uses Google adsense through your blog, Google adsense is easy to sign up for it's account.

You will find it in a separate tab in your blogger dashboard called Monetize.

Amazon associate:

Another way to earn money that you can find in the Monetize tab in your blog.

Advertise Amazon products, Amazon widgets, banners, and products links and you will earn money when people buy the product through your blog.

Affiliate programs:

The same idea of Amazon associate. Advertise any company's products and gain when a transaction is done through your blog. There are lots of companies that offer affiliate programs or you can sign up to affiliate programs websites like Commission Junction and ClickBank. Copy the product's link and paste it to the blog

Give your blog an extra boost:

You have done great job till now but it's not enough. You need to give your blog an extra boost to make sure that search engines recognize it among the millions of blogs out there. You can advertise your blog several ways like:

Social Bookmarking:

Share your blog's link on social bookmarking sites like Strumble, Digg, Delicious, Folkd, Reddit,... You can find lots of bookmarking sites online.

Also, you can share the blog on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin,.....

Blogs comments:

Visit other blogs and leave a nice not-spam comment with your blog's link. If your comment was smart enough, people who view the blog might come by and visit yours.

This is your beginner guide to start and maintain a blog. There are still lots to learn, but this will help you to take the first step. Remember, keep posting, write interesting articles, find exciting niches, and give your blog an extra boost.
