Blogging For Beginners

This post is for anyone that may be thinking about starting up a blog but just doesn't quite know where to start. The great news is that it is not that difficult to do this, the first thing that you have to decide is what type of blog you are interested in having. Basically there are two types of blogs a personal blog where you and your friends can communicate by creating posts and replies for each other, not only is this great it is also very easy because you don't need to worry about search engines and SEO or any of that stuff just set it up and have fun. If you want a professional blog it is more involved getting it set up but you can still do it for yourself you do not need the services of a professional programmer to do this. Basically you get it set up and running your self and worry about driving traffic to your site later.

For both ways you are going to need a domain name this is your online address so people are able to find you, for a personal blog it is not that important pick your name if you want or something fancy if you choose to E.G. jane doe. com, or thinking of you .com. If you have a professional blog you first thing you need to decide on is your niche market, this is very important because you are going to want to have a keyword in your domain name, this will be explained later but for now if your niche is lets say fishing you will want a domain name something like fishing trip .com or fishing box .com or even tackel box .com. you may have to try numerous times to find one that is available but don't give up you will find one.

The next thing to do is go to godaddy .com there you will find all you need to find and purchase a domain name and hosting for your site. There are literally thousands of hosting sites out there and yes you can shop around out there but Go Daddy will do a great job for you and I believe in keeping everything under the same hood. and later on you may end up having several websites and blogs so you will need to keep track of when your domain names are going to expire you don't want to loose those names there important to your business.

Join me on my next article where we will look at Word press as your platform and how to link them all together.
