how to start a blogA few weeks ago, I was in a nearby supper market where I met an old time friend. It was exciting we were seeing each other for the first time after high school, about 10 years ago. Boy! he has grown so big and a father of 2. As a matter of fact, this supper market is his. He’s just establishing it.

John had no idea what a blog is. That was kinda strange to me so I had to educate him after about hours of talks about  our families, business, old school days, etc.

Quickly as we discussed, a question came up from John. That was shortly I told him I’m a blogger. He has read about blogging a few times on the Internet but, the term ‘blog’ was still cloudy to him. So he asked me “What is this thing they call blog?” lol I fell like I was being given much work here. I wanted to make things so simple for my friend to understand. So I told him  a blog is simply a personal website on which you post your opinions on a certain topic on regular basis. His next question was “Can you create my own blog?”  While it is very simple to start a blog, this second question is one of the reasons I started a series of posts on how to create a blog that makes money on my blog.

That definition I gave John is simple. I wanted John to understand he can start a blog right that moment and begin sharing stuffs. As we discussed on, I gave my friend 6 reasons to start his own blog

6 reasons to start a blog today

There are certainly more than enough reasons to start your own blog today. However, here are 6 quick reasons to begin with:

1 – Creating a Blog is very simple

Gone are those days when you have to be a hi-tech geek to be able to set up a blog. Technological growth has made it so simple for everyone to set up his or her own blog. However, you must go through a simple guide. One of my blogging friends, Garen Arnold has a really simple free guide on how to start a blog.

2 – It is very cheap

You can have your own blog fully running without breaking your bank. All you need is a domain name (Use coupon 99luv to get your domain for $0.99 from Godaddy thanks to Andy for making this code available.see here for more godaddy coupons), web hosting of less than $100 a year and premium templates of about $47. You may also want to get some premium plugins and all this put together might not cost you $200.

3 – It’s a business tool

A blog is a powerful business tool. If you have a business, a website without a blog, you are cutting off a great portion of your marketing value. If you want to maintain an active relationship with your clients, keep them informed while gaining new clients, start a blog for your business. Post your business related content regularly. This will largely help drive traffic to your business website which may not be updated on regular business. More traffic, more clients and more profit.

4 – It develops your knowledge

Since I started blogging, I have grown so much in knowledge and writing skills. I do a lot of research every week about the topics I write on. The fun is that it is an interesting exercise that keeps me awake and so informed. Bloggers are very informed people. If you want to grow your knowledge on a certain topic, create a blog on it and strive to update it regularly.

5 – It links you up with many people

This is an awesome point and I love it. Blogging is one activity that brings you closer to so many people both in your local communities and online. It’s a friendship tool that has no racial or tribal discrimination. As a matter of fact, with your blog, you can have friends all over the world.

The last time I traveled to Nigeria, I was hosted by a blogging friend. It was an awesome experience spending time with him and meeting his wife and 2 kids. I knew this guy online. We chatted together, posted on each others blog and finally met physically. Isn’t that beautiful what blogging can do? You will have people wishing to meet you everywhere ;)

6 – You can generate income from your blog

Your blog is a wonderful way to make money online. As a part time blogger, you can make up to $5000/mo from your blog. Full time bloggers make even much more. All you need is properly monetize and drive traffic to it.

There are many more reasons to start your own blog even right now if you haven’t. These are the 6 I discussed with my friend whose new blog will be live soon. I’m sure they are helpful.

    This is very good post.

    This is quite nebulous, actually doesn’t make sense: “Post your business related content regularly. This will largely help drive traffic to your business website which may not be updated on regular business.” How does posting content on your own blog drive traffic to your website?

    Again a quality one from you Enstine. Blogging has now become one of the most powerful and easiest source of income for many people around the world. If your efforts are true then you will always end up as a winner. Unfortunately if you aren’t be able to earn enough money with it, you will certainly increase your knowledge about things. So its a win-win thing for anybody who is going to start a blog. Each of the benefits have been perfectly shown in the article, thanks for this enstine. Keep sharing.

    In terms of money, running a blog or small website does not actually cost that much once the domain name and hosting have been organised. What bloggers shouldn’t underestimate though, is the cost in time it take to make a successful one!

    Seriously, any business functioning without a presence online is living in the 19th century.
    Thanks once more Enstine for this wonderful piece on starting a blog to help grow our business online.

    In reply to Kirby Hopper question, posting on your business blog helps you drive lots of traffic and place you in google’s local search box where your business will grow bigger with lots of traffic coming from local searches around your environment.

  6. I started building blogs back in 2011 and since then have never looked back. Especially with the help of WordPress I have been able to actually land clients in my spare time by getting them set up with their own blogs and some minor training. For me it acts as a great outlet to channel my energy into something productive instead of just watching TV all day long.


    • Twitter:
      Haha I love your last statement Adam
      I’m sure you have learned a lot while blogging too

      • Indeed I have learned quite a bit since I started. Right now I am attempting to learn how to create my own wordpress plugin that will help out people who manage pet blogs. I’ve got the core concepts down but PHP is still very new to me.

        As for my TV statement that only took me to realize that I was watching TV at least 6 hours a day or more after work. Over time that adds up to wasted time quite quickly so instead with shifting my focus I can do something I enjoy while being productive at the same time. Plus I’m a big gamer and realizing that I spent close to 700 hours on one game was a HUGE wake up call that if I ever want to achieve my main goal of becoming a programmer it was time to put the game down and pick the books up.


  7. Twitter:
    Nice share bro …

    Though one cannot easily make money before experiencing failure but I strongly agree with your points #4 & #5 that blogging develops your knowledge and builds presence!

    Hi Enstine, it’s good to constantly see you around here. :)

    This are enough good reasons to starting a blog. I get asked a lot of time how to create blog, even though I’m still a newbie blogger.

    I love all the point you sighted and the story about your friend. One that I’d however really resonated with was when you said it “links you up with many people”. That’s absolutely right. I can’t count how many great folks have met so far in my journey into the blogosphere. While reading this portion, I got a lot of goose-pimple on me. Very toughing actually that you met him. I won’t unveil him okay. (Secret things). :)

    Thanks for sharing this Sir Enstine.

    Hello; when i remind myself that this post came out of a conversation you had with someone who knew nothing about blogging or starting a blog i can appreciate it for its simplicity and clarity. surprised you buried the headline and put profit last. I’m not making much real money from my blog, but it does bring traffic and attention to my website and the amusement equipment for sale on it. and i don’t have any advertising. this is mainly because of a poor experience with google’s adsense with my first blog. I continue to wish for ad revenue and perhaps you could forward me some posts that will get me started. Thanks and take care, max

  19. i love the idea of developing the Knowledge and linking to new people and making a good image to your business but i think the whole making money out of blogs is way overrated,
    unless people consider a 0.01$ per click by a pcp program or 1$ commission every once in a while per an affiliate program is monetizing a blog.
    how in the world would a blog make 5000$ per month with Google Adsense or any other pcp program,
    it’s not logical other wise all bloggers would open 5 blogs and all bloggers would become a stay at home millionaires!
    the whole make great money with blogs is just a myth.
    Best wishes!

  21. Personally I am telling you my experience. When I started blog because of making money but after sometime I am getting more knowledge through it. Because before publishing any content we need to do lots research and do some practicals at the end I will share on my blog.

    I doubt any part time blogger is making $5000 a month. You would have to be doing it full time and have a very popular blog, multiple popular blogs or have a particular niche all to yourself to be making that kind of money. If it were that simple every one would be doing it.

    The last, “you can generate income from your blog” a lot of new blogger starts from there, and when they failed to follow the right method of building a successful site- content->content->traffic->earning.
    they give up. start your blog today if you want to make it to the top.

    Hello Muki
    Starting a blog has become a necessary venture for most people today. I like as you made the money making part the last point.
    The problem is that most new bloggers start with the singular motive of making money; and that’s a perfect plan to frustration and disappointment.
    For me, building relationships, showcasing your creativity and such are chief reasons to start a blog.
    Cheers!

    integrating a blog with ecommerce stores is a great way to pull in long-tail keywords, build authority to your main site as well as helping to straighten your overall website. ecommerce stores tend to lack substance and regularly have duplicate content due to the nature of the site. a blog is a must!
