How To Start a Successful Blog – Basic Things To Know
It is very important to consider some of the important factors before starting a blog. Most of the success factors for your blog depends on these important factors. Most of the bloggers do the mistake of not considering these factors and they realize it after crossing a long milestone. So after doing some studies I have found some basic but important factors that every bloggers should know before starting a blog. So lets see some of the basic and important things to start a blog.
How To Start a Successful Blog
1. Choose the domain name carefully
It is very important that you choose a domain name that suits your niche as the domain name is an integral part of any website or blog. Do not chose a domain name with your name as some times it may be difficult for users to remember it. Try to choose a shorter name that suits your niche and easy to remember. For example you can see amitbhawani.com a successful blog but does not have a professional name, so recently they have switched to a more professional name androidadvices.com which suits their niche.
2. Choose your niche carefully
Selecting your niche carefully is very important in getting success in blogging. Do not choose your niche randomly but it is always better to choose a niche in which you have interest and where you have a better command. This helps in creating a very good user base for your blog.
3. Select the right blogging platform
Selecting the right blogging platform is one of the most important factor for a successful blog. If you select wordpress and later you want to switch to blogger for different features it would be difficult for you to migrate it though it is possible but you will loose your backlinks as well. So it is very important that you first decide what suits you better and then go for that platform.
4. Select the best design for your blog
Just imagine a beautiful photo in an ugly photo frame, how does it look, obviously the beauty of the photo will be hidden inside the ugly photo frame. The same thing happens when you write quality and good contents in a bad designed blog. The quality of your content will be hidden inside the bad design and you may loose your authentic visitors. So before you start your blog select a good design or theme for your blog, let your visitors get the flavor of the dish first. Even it is not a bad idea to spend some money over a good design which is SEO friendly.
5. Keep your energy level high
I was trying to start my own blog since a long time and did not get success ever because my energy level was not high and I was not putting my best effort to write articles. Most of the successful blogs are the results of long term efforts. So it is important for every bloggers to keep their energy level high and not to get frustration for writing posts.
6. Concentrate on one blog at a time
Success lies in the hard work and dedication you put in your work. So at a single time only concentrate on s single blog and give your best effort to it. After you get success you may start thinking of starting another blog but till then just concentrate on a single blog.
7. Remember Blogging is not a money making machine over night
Blogging concept was started with a vision of putting individuals interests on the internet, blogging is to put your thoughts on internet, blogging is to helping out others by providing solutions to problems. So do not think that blogging will make a lot of money for you over night. You just need to give your efforts to put your thoughts forward over internet and leave the rest on your destiny.
8. Try to be a good Story Teller
Story telling is a great art you need to be a good story teller for getting success in blogging. Whet ever you are seeing around you you need to put that in a story format so that your visitors will be engaged with. It is a practice that you need to develop.
