As a beginner I suggest you not to focus on earning in the first six month after starting a blog as I had seen many of my friends started their blog and on the first day itself they started thinking of making money from their blog and after three month they quit blogging saying that they are not able to earn money from their blog

Here is a Guide on “10 things to do before starting a blog in 2017”

After a survey it is known that many people quit blogging as they don’t able to earn money but I gurantee you this is a long term business and as time passes you will be able to earn a good money from your blog but you have to maintain and update your blog till six month

Bored of lecture, sorry for that! But, it was important to make you aware before you start

Now, coming directly to step required  to start a blog :

STEP 1 : Choose a blogging platform [ WordPress ]

STEP 2 :  Register a Domain Name [ www.myblogname.com ]
A Domain Name is the name chosen by you for your website ( or blog )

A Domain Name is the address where internet users can access your website ( or blog )

Generally a website ( or blog ) is identified by Ip Address which is a series of numbers but as it is difficult to remember by internet users so Domain Name came into existence as it is generally easier to remember a name rather than a long string of numbers

Here is a guide on “10 things to keep in mind while choosing Domain Name”

Domain Name consists of two parts :

  • your website ( or blog ) name and
  • domain name extension

For ex : dreamtoblog.com , here dreamtoblog is my website ( or blog ) name and .com is the domain name extension and combining these is our domain name

Every domain name is unique, No two websites ( or blogs ) can have the same domain name

STEP 3 : Register a Web Hosting Account and install WordPress to it
Web hosting is generally an internet service which provide space on internet to stores your files , data , information and website on internet and make it easily accessible to internet users online via world wide web

There are many web hosting companies which sells or rent their space on internet to you to store your data and information

There are many free and paid web host service provider but I suggest you to choose a paid one as free services doesn’t attract internet users to your website in bulk and also they gives your website a subdomain name which looks ugly

For ex : Paid service allow you to host dreamtoblog.com but when it comes to free service they attach a subdomain name with your domain like dreamtoblog.blogspot.com or dreamtoblog.wordpress.com

For beginners it’s my advice to choose a cheap shared web hosting service for first year generally starting below $2/month and you can upgrade later to a private or virtual web hosting depending on your need

Many Web Hosts offer free domain name for 1 year with their 1 year hosting plan, I suggest you to go with it as you didn’t need to pay a single penny for domain name

If you are living in india, good news for you as godaddy is offering a domain name and hosting for 3 years at just Rs 4200

Generally Your WordPress Admin Panel URL Will Be Like yourblogname.com/wp-admin

On Navigating To The Required URL You Will Be Forwarded To A Login Page
