Well, am sure you’ve heard of blogging and don’t know where to start. Some of us have actually heard people say that they make money from doing it. Others say that it’s the best way they express how they feel, isn’t that sweet? This article will guide you through the basics of how you can have your own blog.
What is a blog?
You’ve probably googled the meaning by now. Wikipedia, defines a blog as a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts).
Let’s simplify this, a blog is a really simple website where you get to post your content and make it available online.
Am sure you are now wondering how you can publish the simple website. There are platforms that allow you to sign up, select your design and in minutes your blog is ready. Such platforms like wordpress and have simplified the design process for people who might not be tech-savvy. We can help you with the set up.
Here is what you need to do.
- Pick a name for your blog.
- Pick a niche. Choose a topic/or just a few you’ll address and stick to that. You definitely don’t want to talk about everything.
- Set up your blog.
Consider investing in a domain name and a hosting service.
Yeah, it sounds complicated but imagine it’s not. Someone with their own domains and hosting has a better professional image compared to the guy using a free service.
