Choose the Topic of your Interest

This is the first thing which is done by every new blogger. Niche is it’s another form of words which many bloggers use to talk about.

You have to make a decision quickly over here in choosing the topic. If you are still confused regarding this, then let me help you out by keeping few goods topics in front of you.

  • Technology
  • Lifestyle
  • Business
  • Health & Fitness 
  • Motivational
  • Arts & Culture
  • Entrepreneur
  • News
  • Food
  • Travel
  • Gaming

If you are interested in any one of these topics then make your decision quickly. But it doesn’t mean that you would choose my suggestion only. As my suggested topics are limited but you got to decide for yourself any topic in which you are deeply interested.

The Fact is that Your interest will reflect into your blog, after a long time of blogging

So, you must choose it according to your interest. And by the way, you can only do something great at where you are most interested. Isn’t it so true in life as well?

Another reason to choose a topic of your interest is that it will help you in many ways such as Working Hard, Working smartly, Enjoying your work, and so on.


After choosing your topic of interest in which you want to blog, you have completed the first point. Let’s move forward…

Domain Name

Domain name is the name of your website, for example, traypost.com, here traypost is the name of this website.

To register your domain name you will need some of the platforms such as GoDaddy, Hostgator. Try with any one of these because these domain name service provider are popular and valid. Start a blog

Before registering any domain name you must keep ideas about it. Actually, you can choose any name whatever you wish for but unfortunately, most of the time we don’t get the domain name that we want for our website, because of its unavailability.

Be unique with your domain name, this is the main thing that you have to keep in mind while purchasing a new domain name. These are the few ways to choose your best domain name…

  • Your domain name should be simple.
  • It should not be too lengthy.
  • It’s always better to have domain name of 6-9 characters.
  • It should be easily readable.
  • Try to choose it short as much as possible.

 

Search the names in the search bar, check the availability. To inform you earlier that choose the .com, .net,. extensions.

As these two extensions are more relevant and applicable for mainly every type of website.

Details of the domain name extensions


.com – is for commercial websites, such as tech, e-commerce, Blogs, and so on. Most of the websites use this extension and you would see its major role in the google search.

.net– it is used most of the time for networks and also for social sites.

.edu it is used for educational sites.

.gov– It is used for government sites.


There are more extensions available but the ” .com” is a very famous one. so, for your new blog, you can go with it. Mentioned in this image, the difference between the ranges or you can see the price of the extensions.

Start a blog

You can check it out at GoDaddy 

Domain names come with few plans such as for monthly, or yearly. You have to decide which one you want to choose. Once you had completed this step, move to the next one…

Host your website

After purchasing your domain name, you will have to host it. The first question which would strike in your mind that what is Hosting?

Chill! This is not so difficult to grab, but the easiest thing to understand in less than a minute.

Hosting is a service provider platform which allows any individual or a website to post it on the Internet. 

I think you got the point. Whenever any website user wants to view your website, then they would simply search it on search engines. And your website will be easily available to them in their web browser.

start a blog

These are the plans for complete hosting including domain from Bluehost.

But it is required that you must purchase a domain name before hosting it on any hosting platforms such as GoDaddy, Hostgator.

There are some free hosting platforms as well but I would suggest you that don’t go with them because there are lots of risks.

Your website will be partially controlled by them and also you will face the error most of the time.

So, Host it on some paid platforms such as Godday or Hostgator, or the best one is Bluehost. 

These hosting platforms also provide a domain name.  So, for that, you can purchase a whole service including both domain name and host.

Start a blog

These plans are from Godaddy. You must compare the plans from different hosting platforms whichever fits you, purchase it.

You can choose any one from these all plan for your website to be installed on wordpress.org or any other blogging platform such as blogger, etc.

Plans For Website

Which plan you would like to go with? Yes, it is your choice. If you want to start your new blog for free then use Blogger or WordPress.com.

On the other hand, if you want to upgrade your website plans then choose the wordpress.org or wordpress.com premium plans.

For WordPress.com plans, here you can have a look at it. As I had discussed the pros and cons of WordPress both websites in above para. So, Now choose it as per your requirements.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you are a beginner in this blogging world. So, you may be willing to get rid of coding then simply apply for wordpress.com free version. And later on, upgrade your plans with premium or business plan.

Or you may be thinking about the wordpress.org. So, I can say it’s also a good platform for the beginners but you must also enjoy the techy stuff to choose this one.

Well, most of the website is self-hosted and use this one. But you have to be accurate with your self-analysis then make a final decision.

As far WordPress is concerned, I will provide you with each and every detail about it. And how to start your blogs using any of this platforms. Just keep reading, you will come to know everything in detail.

Registration Process

It will not take more time to understand. Before starting I would like to say that if you have made up your mind to go with any of the WordPress plans then you have to keep a little amount money in your pocket. Now apply for the process.

  • For WordPress.org, because of its self-hosted platform. You will have to take care of hosting and buying your domain names. Well, it will not cost you more than 100$ for a single year.
  • Just use Godaddy platform to host your website. And if you are interested in purchasing a domain name from their included plan then it will not be a bad deal. You can proceed.
  • I had mentioned above all the details about it, so check it out.
  • Now come to WordPress.com, You will either choose a free plan or the upgraded one like a premium or business plan.
  • If you are completely new to these terms then go with a free plan first and after having a good understanding of it, shift the plan from free to paid ones. After shifting, you can access all the available featured in it.
  • Again I can make sure, that you will have not to worry about the hosting of your website after choosing the wordpress.com platform. As it is free of cost and you will get full feature after you apply for personal, premium, or business plan.

For registering a new website

  1. You must have a debit card for purchasing a domain name or you can purchase it from the internet banking options.
  2. Make sure you are using your genuine card for activating any of the plans.
  3. Don’t try to change your domain name, even if you got the options. So, choose wisely your new domain name.
  4. Add your e-mail address correctly. Use the active e-mail address because you will be asked to verify your purchasing by the e-mail confirmation.

Setting Up WordPress

Blogging Strategies

Till now, you are done with the terms and features. Here, you will come to know all the most tragedic and popular strategies for blogging in the best way.

Your blogging success will be 70%, the reflective part of your blogging ways that how you blog, and for what you blog. Wait, don’t get confused. I am talking about the methods which will definitely increase your blogging concept.

  • Understand the dual demand
  • Write passionately and exactly
  • Maintain the consistency
  • Outlook with the right design
  • Content is the king 
  • Examine the overall structure of your blog’s website
  • Create your new blog as Brand
  • Marketing is the success key of blogging

1) Understand the dual demand

When there is a need, demand is its need. Actually, in blogging strategies, this is the first step for improving your blogging. Everyone has nowadays started a blog but only a few have the taste of success.

Why this is so? The first reason is the scarcity of writing on demand. Take one example to understand it, If there is no demand for 2G phones in the market in 2018 and then also some of the old companies are just making it, just for selling it.

What do you think, whether that all the 2G phones will be sold at this present time in the modern world! Guess!!

Yes, I don’t say that nothing will be sold but it’s almost sure that not all will be sold as now 4G phones are being sold in the market.

So, Write as per your customers demand. Don’t simply put it because you want it. Always remember that your customer is the king and you must do whatever you can do to make them happy with your writings.

I think from this simple example you would get my point that what actually I mean to say here.

  • First, do a good research on the trending topics.
  • Then start compiling your post headings.
  • And explore each of the headings in a simpler way.

That’s it. You are done.

But one important thing you should keep in your mind while writing a post is that you are not only writing for your customers but you are also writing it for Google Algorithm as well.

As the dual demand means here – the demand of your customers and of Google Algorithm. You have to maintain the balance between these two things.

You will come to know about Google Algorithm, in Later SEO Tips.

2) Write Passionately and exactly

You are a blogger, Right! Well, that’s a good way of saying the truth to the world. But can you analyze one thing from the good blogger to a bad blogger? Don’t get me wrong!!

Wait, and first read then keep your points as per your own wish in the comment section. I said that if you are a blogger by profession and passion. Then it’s such a wonderful thing that you are doing what you wish to? 

depth-of-field-desk-essay-210661

The question simply arises here about how passionately you are writing and how exactly you are willing to keep your point in front of your readers.

I think you are very much passionate about writing. Isn’t it? that’s why you chose for blogging. But my friend let me ask you one thing that, does writing is enough for blogging?

Writing is important but if you will write passionately and exactly then you will reach the right level of blogging.

  1. Write with full passion.
  2. Try to fix out the exact points.

One thing is very clear that if you are passionate about writing then be sure that one day your website will definitely achieve the position, you wished for.

And you can only be said as a true blogger when you will put your hard efforts with your passion in your writings.

Finally, you had chosen to blog, then don’t get stuck at any point while writing. Literally saying just enjoy your blogging and live a wonderful life.

Here I want to make sure that, It is concerned with the blogging strategies as well. So, don’t neglect this point as this is also very much important.

3) Maintain the consistency of blogging

No one can remain as to the top-level until and unless maintained the consistency of blogging. Even top bloggers follow this simple strategy always.

  • Write a new post weekly if not daily.
  • Always try to change the topics with some new ingredients.
  • Increase your post links more and more by posting constantly.

There are many benefits to maintain the consistency of blogging. As your blog will have more page views, more new readers and so on.

If you will not maintain the consistency of your blogging then it is hard to say that your blog website will expand. So, work day and night to create a lot of blog posts and publish it.  Because this is only the real reason behind any successful blog.

4) Outlook with the right design

Design matters a lot. But you know one thing that the exact design matters more. And your website design comes with themes you choose.

Right design means that if your website is of photography then you can’t make your homepage as simply showing the texts.brainstorming-campaign-collaborate-6224

Similarly, when your website is about news, you can’t use only the big photos in it…

As you know that …

  • Right design is appreciable from every perspective.
  • Right design will enhance your readers to read more.

So, it is far better if you maintain the complete design of your new website.

 5) Content is the king in Blogging

While blogging you must keep this single thing in your mind that your quality and quantity of the contents matters. And because of this, it is considered as the king in blogging.

  • Increase your writing skills, and learn few of the techniques which will definitely improve the quality of your contents.
  • You are a blogger so the content matters 90% for your blog. And 10% is the rest of its promotion and SEO.

6) Examine the overall structure of your blog’s website

Don’t get confused by the overall structure and design of your website. As I have discussed the design of the website in the above para.

Actually, the overall structure includes design and SEO.

What to examine here?

Examine the faults and correct it immediately. There are so many negligible faults that every newbie blogger has to fix. Like not formatting the contents, not putting the logical photos. and so on.

To do this simply, re-map your blog’s writing structure. And after this find out which structure fits better for your website.

7) Create a new blog website as a brand

When we talk about trust, definitely we move around the branded products. It does not matter if the price of the product is a little expensive. But we still use to purchase such products.

Some of the Reason…

  • It creates trust among the public.
  • It is easily available.
  • It is precisely genuine.

So, now you can understand the benefits of creating your new blog’s website as a new brand. After becoming a new brand,  your website will be more acceptable in Google’s Terms and conditions.

  • Focus on creating it like a stock of new ideas. And make your website as an authorized website. For doing this you will have to maintain consistency of your blogging.

No great thing happens in a day as Rome was not built in a day. For that, you will definitely have to work hard and smart.

8) Marketing is the key to the success of blogging

My question is – Does really marketing matters in the journey of blogging?

 SEO Tips

SEO is nothing but a Search Engine Optimization method. You must use SEO tips to improve the ranking of your website in Google.advertising-alphabet-business-270637

Q. What actually SEO does and what’s the connection between SEO and a website.

Ans-  SEO helps to get traffic from search Engine to your website, such as Google.

This is very important if you want your website to rank well in the search engine. So, don’t ever think to escape this topic. 

SEO is considered as the queen of the website. So, to know the connection between it read the strategies mentioned below…

1) Loading Speed of the Website

If your website is slow or it takes more than 10 seconds to load than its a risk. Fix this loading problem first of all. 

It includes the SEO part of a website. You may be thinking that why this is important! Well, the answer is that no one will open a website which is very slow while loading.

  • Your website loading speed is directly linked with your hosting platforms, such as Bluehost, WordPress.com, Godaddy, etc.. 
  • Choose your correct hosting platforms. It would be good if you use WordPress hosting. 
  • Analyse and optimize your website Pagespeed Insights.

2)A website must be Mobile Friendly

You might be thinking that what is mobile friendly! Are you? Well, here is the answer to it. Actually mobile friendly simply means that – a kind of the webpage which is easy to read and open on a mobile device. 

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Search engines also check that whether a website page is mobile friendly or not. If you don’t know if your website is mobile friendly or not, simply take a test of it using Google’s tool. 

  • Simply search “Mobile Friendly Test” in the Google search bar. 
  • And write the exact URL of your website. 
  • Wait a second and Google will analyze it and give you a report of it. 

if your website is Mobile friendly than it means that there is no problem with the font size of the website in Mobile, and so on. 

3) Write like a Thick Contents

Here, Thick contents mean that you must write in deep. Don’t simply write for the sake of posting a new post. But you should take care of your contents.

Content is the king, and SEO is the queen. 

I don’t have any kind of philosophy for thick and thin contents. But to give a brief idea about the SEO. I choose it and jotted it in my SEO part. 

  • If possible write a post which should have at least 1500 words. And maximum as much as you wish. This simple rule will boost your ranking in google. 
  • Most of the new website can easily rank on the first page of the website if its posts are more in detail. 

Even to explain your things in a better way, you have to write more and more. If you are a blogger then writing is the first thing which should matter a lot to you.

4) KeyWord matters a lot

Keywords are the “search queries”. To understand this for SEO is very simple.  Whenever anyone searches for something in a Search engine then only the keywords are first displayed in the search bar. 

It helps people to find the websites. And from the SEO perception, it is valued the most. Yes, if you know this technique then it means you know 40% of the SEO. Screenshot (213)

  • Without keywords, your posts would never rank well in Google.
  • Keywords are the keys to Google crawling and indexing process.

Include keywords in your posts, and make search engines possible to find your website easily. But this can confuse Googlebot and can create a  problem also if you will overuse it in any of your posts. 

So use it wisely!!

I mean here that, don’t write the post, with the full of keywords. It is a wrong process. And Googlebot takes action regarding this kind of website or posts.
