Blogging should be your passion at the time of starting a blog, You should not think of directly making money from your blog at the beginning otherwise i know many of my friends who started blogging just for making money not for their interest and after a few months, they quit as their  blog was not able to generate money for them

As in every article i am mentioning that blogging is a long term business and if you you maintain your blog well for first six month without thinking of making money, it will prove to be good money making source for lifetime

I am writing this post to make you aware of some steps you should follow before starting a blog i.e registering a domain name and web hosting

STEP 1 : Think A Better Domain Name For Blog
Thinking a domain name is first step you should take before starting a blog, as this is a world of competitions and according to a survey there are 175+ million blog online and getting a better domain name is just like searching a pearl in the sea

Your domain name must be unique and should represent everything about your content on your blog

Step 2 : Choose A Topic For Your Blog
Choosing a blog topic is another step towards starting a blog, as your blog topic represent each and every content of your blog

You should choose a topic in which you should be interested and should have knowledge in depth about your blog topic and even your blog topic should attract a large mass of audience on internet

Here is a list of blog topics which covers a large number of audience on internet and you should choose one among them or may choose a unique topic which may be attractive and can engage a large number of internet users”

Step 3 : Write at least 50 posts for your blog
Now, it’s time to be a writer, start creating contents for your blog and provide unique and attractive topic to each  posts, never copy other’s content in your post

Try to write content with your own words, and even this will improve your writing skills and no one can claim copyright for that article

Store each post in sequencial manner in ms-word document and keep it in a format which will be ready to use in your blog with suitable headings

Step 4 : Create a demo blog on free platform
There are different free blogging platforms, most common among those are blogger and wordpress

Just register with any one of free blogging platform and create a demo blog i.e create front end layout, customize and upload contents to that blog

Just carry out for free, make blogging your habit and passion and create a demo blog

Think from your audience view,what exactly they want from your blog and then design an attractive demo blog

Step 5 : Create an album filled with images
Now it’s time to play with images, create some images to attach in your posts using any photo editing software

Your images should be post related and attractive so that it can engage more and more internet users on your blog

Create an album and store all your images to it and use it on your topic or post demand, At least each post should consist of one images

Images used should be such that it can give a brief overview of your content i.e. each images on your blog should talk about the content related to it

Step 6 : Register with different social media sites
When coming to talk about social media sites, the first thing came in my mind is facebook and according to me same is with you also

Many people use facebook just for chatting, making friends and passing time but for bloggers, it is a free advertising platform to promote your blog or individual post

There are other social networking sites you should enroll with before starting a blog, some most common among them are :

Step 7 : Make videos related to your post
Make attractive videos related to your post and create a youtube channel and upload those videos to youtube and attach those videos with your blog and start gaining subscribers for your channel

Apply for google adsense with your channel and once you cross 10000+ views on your videos, you will start earning with videos

Step 8 : Three pages you should create
Every blogger should create the following three pages and add information to it :

About Us : Every blog should have a About page where you should provide your introduction, your goal behind launching the blog and other information related to you or your blog

Contact Us : Here generally you had to provide your contact information so that a visitor of your blog can contact you 24×7 and generally it consist of a contact form

Privacy : Here you should share your policy stating that your users data is safe with you or not if a user enrolls to your website and rules for using your website

Step 9 : Start Keyword Research
Keyword research mainly refers to find the right keyword for your blog posts .This mainly leads to growth of our blog in short period of time and attract visitors to our blog

Usually we should use a keyword which has high volume but low competions, this generates a regular engagements of internet users on your blog

Step 10 : Schedule your blogging time
Setting up a schedule for posting is extremely important, so before you dive into that aspect of your blog, take some time to polish your first post . Don’t publish it up until you’re absolutely sure it’s ready to go online.

Everyday till six month, daily at least publish one post on your blog and schedule half an hour daily for promoting your each day post by different medium either it be facebook,google,instagram etc.

Also create a database consisting of at least 5000 e-mails and schedule daily to message them about your new blog post
