How to start a Blog in 2021| Start Blogging from scratch
Are you new to blogging and not sure where to start your blogging journey?
Then you are in right place. I will tell you how you can start blogging from scratch or how to start a blog in 2021.
Firstly, you need to know these four main parts of blogging.
- Blogging Platform
- Blog Niche
- Domain Name
We have two different platforms for starting your blogging journey.
This is a google platform which offers free hosting for your website.
The domain comes with blogger extension. Which looks like below:
If you want a personalized domain name then you need to pay for that but the hosting remains free.
This is a content management system which comes in with the hosting.
You can install this and create your website from scratch without any coding knowledge.
These are two different platforms that you can choose one.
If you don’t have any investment then go with blogger and then upgrade to WordPress.
But my suggestion would be to go for WordPress when you are starting your blogging journey because that doesn’t cost that much upfront approx 2000 INR.
Selecting a particular niche when you are starting your blogging journey is a very important and crucial step.
Because so many of us think if I post on multiple niches I will get more traffic and can able to earn more income.
But, it doesn’t work because users don’t recognize your website is good for particular topics and refers to their friends to visit.
My suggestion would be when you are starting your journey as a blogger make sure you focus on a particular niche.
Selecting a domain name is an interesting step that needs utmost care because your website should look good and easy to remember.
Try to avoid underscores or number in domain name as mentioned below:
xyz3222.com or xyz_a.com.
The reason behind this is simple whenever a user searches in google search we don’t use numbers or special characters.
After completing all the steps that are mentioned above now we need hosting to host our website.
Buy a hosting plan from any of the hosting providers. I am using Hostinger which looks good and comes at a low price.
If you want to try it before going big in blogging maybe try a starter pack that provides a single website hosting service.
Now we have a domain name and hosting as well.
Now install WordPress in the hosting panel and start creating your website from the WordPress admin dashboard which looks like below from where you can use free themes or you can buy premium themes.
These are the important steps to start your blog and blogging journey from scratch.
Hope this helps you to clear some doubts on how to start a blog 2021.
