Hello there! This is Daimary john and in this post, I’m gonna be teaching you “How to make a Blog”?.
In this age of internet, you can easily and instantly build yourself a super Blog. It’s just a matter of “Minutes”. The only problem would be is to choose the right “Blogging Platform”. Don’t worry, I will differentiate all in this post and I will also guide you through what it needs to create a Blog?.
1. Choosing a topic
This is going to be your primary need. Without a topic, you can do nothing. You’ll have to upload post’s periodically. That’s how you are going to have your “Audience” and a successful “Blog”.
There are no restrictions on what you can write. You can choose to blog on Cooking, Music, Dance, Architecture, Travel and pretty much everything.
Most successful Blogs are based on Magazines, News, Reviews etc. These types of blogs require the most work. They also have to be up-to date and always have to upload posts in time, or else they will loose their valuable audience. Just make sure to choose a topic, where you can firmly stick to it.
2. Choosing a blogging platform
After you have figured out on what to blog on, Now it’s time to buy a home. Choosing one should always be according to one’s need. Let us differentiate all in detail:
