In this article, I will guide you how create a unique blog for making money
Unleash ideas within you
If you want to create a blog, you don’t need a revolutionary idea. But, your blog should be focused on something specific.
Remember that no idea, no matter how good, is truly unique.
But, you have unique experiences. You have a distinct voice. And, you probably have a vibrant personality that will attract others like your family and friends.
This is a fun and important step, because your blog name is your brand. It’s how you’ll be remembered. But, don’t overthink it. The key is to take action and gain momentum.
When you’re starting a blog from scratch, you need two things.
The first is a domain name.
This is your blog’s name. For example, mine is azestudy.com Domain names will run you roughly $10/year. If you don’t find the right domain name, no worries you can still start a blog and change your name later.
The second is web hosting.
Web hosting is a service that allows your blog to be accessed through the internet.
Without web hosting, your blog can’t be seen online. Without a domain name, your blog won’t have an address. The two are inseparable. There are plenty of web hosting companies to choose from.
Decide what to start a blog about
How to start a blog step 1You probably already have a general idea of what to start a blog about, but let’s look at a few blogging tips for beginners just in case you are not quite there yet.
Avoid choosing too broad of a niche.
For example, don’t just blog about fitness, blog about marathon running or resistance training in particular. Keeping all of your articles in a tight niche to begin with will help Google to see that your site is an authority on the subject and they will send you more visitors if this is the case.
The above isn’t designed to crush your dreams of making a huge site, this is quite possible later on. You can expand into new categories of course, but it is a lot easier to get the ball rolling with readers and traffic if you stay focused to begin with.
Try to create unique content
Write about topics that people will always be searching for, even in the future.
To give an example of this in the fashion niche (Notorious for this problem), people will always be searching for the best flats under $100 – this is unlikely to change massively over the years.
