How to Create a Blog

Thursday, March 15, 2018
So recently I've created a blog and believe me, everyone can  do it since making blog nowadays uses plugins. 

At first, my goal to have my blog is to express in a unique way but I found out that I can make money through it.

Before doing my blog, I searched first on other bloggers like Neil Patel who is an expert blogger and also one of my inspirations to do a blog. I learned a lot from him on blogging that's why I'll share it to you now on how I did my blog by the help of his blog.
 
So you want to have a blog? That's amazing. 

A blog can help you to avoid boredom  on your free time and help you to socialize by posting your life and publishing to express yourself. 

Blogging also lets you help others with their problems and the most interesting on it is you can make money.

If you're new to blogging, me too! I'll take your back not as an expert but as your school companion to guide you.

Follow these steps and  guess what? Soon you'll be a blogger too.

These steps will teach you how:


Step 1: Choose the right blogging platform


Choose the eight blogging platform

This will help you create your blog and set-up.  We can find many blogging platform for FREE. A good example is www.blogger.com. I started blogging with this platform since I am only a student who's only depending on my allowance. So this free hosting is for me now.

But if you have money and you are eager to start your blog professionally, you can have Wordpress.org and buy hosting to store and operate your blog.

Others are Wordpress.com (free hosting), GoDaddy, Wix and more.

(Further steps will be for Blogger platform)


Step 2  Make a domain name and address


Make a domain name
   
On this step, you'll think  an effective name you want to your site and address or keyword where people will find your blog. 

I suggest that you should think a unique and distinct name and address to prevent competition. For example, Jhelvee Cacho which is a distinct name and it's easy to remember.


Step 3: Choose blog design you want       


Choose blog designs

There are varieties of themes you can choose depending on your goal and yourself. Try first setting up your blog on a simple yet clear and organized one so people could deal to your blog easily. Don't worry, you can change it later.

If you plan to change it, you can find many templates on the web. 

Copy the xml file to the default html of your blog but make sure you import first the contents and copy the old html file for you to plug it easily whenever there is an error occurred.


Step 4: Customize your blog


Customizing your blog needs creativity and your own vision towards it. 

Adding some buttons will help your audience to engage more to your blog and will crawl all with the help of it. 

On this step, deal with something that you know your targeted audience will click and find more. 


For example, if your blog is all about girl issues then try to choose colors, buttons, words/contents which suits most girl's preferences like color pink for example.


Step 5: Add Posts

You're free to post as much as you want. Stick to your topic as your blog title tells about. 

If your blog is about finance then have contents only about issues regarding money to avoid misleading which could lead to audience's misunderstanding.

Horaay! Start growing your blog
