Well, I’ve shared with you the idea of creating a blog and how your blog can help bring in some money for you! After the start of my blog post series, I’ve got friends who msn-ed me on what exactly do they need to do and are asking for advice. So now that I have shared with you the ‘WHY’ of starting a blog and to end off the blog series, I’m going to talk about ‘HOW’ you can start your blog.
Firstly, you need to sign up with a blogging platform. The one that I’m using is WordPress, Blogger and LiveJournal which also provide the service too.
Next, pick out a theme for your blog and also the topic that you are going to blog about. You need to be specific about what you are blogging about in order to be able to reach out to your target audience. Let’s say you are blogging about Female Healthcare, you would want to narrow down to the specific group of females you are targetting. Let’s say teenagers. After which, you need to narrow down to the specific category of health care. Is it going to be on facial care, hair care, psychological care or just physical wellness? So you need to be specific.
Finally, start blogging!!! Insert a lot of content and information into your blog! Try to link with sites that are relevant to your site as well as try to find blogs that are also in the same niche. Get to know more people – fellow bloggers as well as your blog readers and visitors!
After which, sign up with Google adsense and get the ad codes to place on your blog. You need to either do a Google search on affiliate programs which are related to your blog content or go to Clickbank to search its marketplace for affiliate programs too. You can go to Payperpost to find assignments to blog about too! 🙂
