A Quick Guide To Blogging For Beginners

niche authorityEveryone has to start somewhere and even the most professional bloggers were just amateurs at some point in time. But with so much information on blogging for beginners available online, it can be difficult to determine which advice is best.

This quick guide will provide you with some simple steps that you can follow to get you started on the right track:

1. Setting Up

You first step in setting up your blog is to select an appropriate platform. There are hundreds of platforms available to choose from but it is advisable to select one of the larger providers that have user friendly functionality.

You will need to choose whether to host your blog free of charge or at a cost. Free hosting will apply some limitations and restrictions while paying should provide you with full access to all the services and functions that are available. You may want to start with a free option and upgrade when your blog starts to take off.

You can now install the software and select your domain name. If you have selected free hosting, your domain name will be restricted.

Last but not least, you can begin designing your blog page. You can choose from a wide range of themes that are easy to use and navigate. Remember that you can always change your theme at a later date.

2. Evaluate Your Blogging Topic

This may seem like an inane step in blogging for beginners as you should already have a topic and reason for starting a blog in mind. However, it is important to narrow down your subject matter and your motivation for starting a blog.

Your topic can be very personal in nature or can be as broad as you wish. You should stick to subjects that you are familiar with and of which you have some knowledge that you can impart. Blogging about subjects you know nothing about can be time consuming, frustrating and could result in getting the facts wrong.

You should also try and identify your audience and ensure that your blogs are aimed at them. The broader your topic, the greater the audience you will be likely to attract but the more difficult it will be to satisfy them.

3. Writing

You are now ready to write your first blog. Keep the blog short, to the point and use language that is understandable and not too technical. Use lots of punctuation, adjectives and adverbs.

Proof read the post carefully and correct any spelling or grammar errors. Read it a second time, out loud, so that you can hear how the blog will sound to your readers. You may need to edit some parts of your blog before posting.

Don’t worry if your writing doesn’t sound right or if you can’t seem to get your point across on your first few attempts. Good writing comes with practice and the more often you blog, the easier the process will get. If you continue to struggle, you may want to take a basic writing course.
