How To Create Your First Blog Like A Pro!


What You Need

  • A website or blog-publishing service provider.
  • A domain name and web host.
  • bluehost.com
  • At least five written blog articles.
    • Word count is not as important as keywords.
    • However, blog articles should be around 350-600 words average.
      • Too short = not enough information to be relevant.
      • Too long = attention spans are shorter and will not be fully read or bounce.
        • Bounce = Someone who visits your website just to leave as fast as they entered.
        • Fluff = extra words used for the purpose of increasing word count.
    • Find keywords
      • Words or phrases that people type into Google when searching for topics relevant to your website or blog.
  • Patience
    • If you are into this solely to make money then you might want to reconsider.
    • Your articles may not see a lot of traffic at first, but they will.
      • Be consistent with your posting so your audience does not forget about you or move on.
      • I try for one every 1-2 weeks but sometimes life gets ahead of you.

 

Step 1

  • Think of some topics that you have an interest in.
    • Do you have enough knowledge on the topic to write informative blog posts?
    • Does it spark any inspiration from you?
    • Is it a niche idea?
    • What makes your content different then the rest?

 

Step 2

  • Sign up for a blogging website.
    • Two popular websites are:
      • Blogger.com
      • Wordpress.com
    • Both are simple to use and there are a lot of resources that will teach you how to use the platform to get your blog up and running!
  • I used Blogger to create my blog.

 

Step 3

  • Write your first article.
    • Make it around 350-600 words so that Google can find it in their algorithm.
      • The search bot looks for websites with content with these numbers.
      • Any less and your blog will not turn up as much on any search engine.
  • Post your article.
    • Post it first to the service of your choice (e.g., Blogger).

 

Step 4

  • Share a link to your new page on your social media accounts.
    • Facebook
      • Create a fan page on Facebook so that more people see your blog posts.
      • Invite your whole contact list so that they can share and comment on your posts.
      • Use your page to start more discussions to receive more engagement from your readers.
      • Entice your page followers to find more by allowing them to share your posts with their contacts.
      • The more people that share, the more people will see your blog.
        • Even if they do not click the first time.
    • Reddit
      • Reddit is another great site to share your blog.
        • You can create discussions with millions of already registered users.
        • Also, join discussions to put in your two cents with a link back to your blog.
          • The more links that lead back to your blog the better
          • Creating links this way allows more people to engage with your blog.
    • Twitter
      • I use Twitter to post updates multiple times per day.
      • It is used to relay short and concise messages to your followers.
    • Ask your friends and family members to share your blog links so that more people can see them.
    • Each share means that more and more people are seeing your blog.

 

Step 5

  • Reply to feedback.
    • Comments
    • Questions
    • The more involved you become, the more your audience does.

  3. Gloating such countless things they will do and have done is a way for this person to persuade themselves that they are in charge. Recall that one of the "control issues" person's misshaped intellectual convictions is that as long as they stay better than someone else they have power over them. Márcio Miranda Maia
