starting-a-blogThis article will provide you with a checklist for starting a blog – So you’ve finally made the decision to start your own blog, congratulations. So where do you start you’re probably wondering? Starting a blog for the first time is an exciting venture, but with the excitement also comes frustration, especially if you don’t know where to start or have very little knowledge about blogging itself. Fear not, for this post will try and provide you with a checklist of some of the things you need to do to get your first blog off to a cracking start.

  1. Selecting a niche

The first step of starting a blog is finding a niche for your blog; a niche is an idea, subject or topic in which you will primarily discuss on your blog. This could be anything you want it to be, to help you find the perfect and perhaps the most profitable niche for your blog.

  1. Finding a Web Host

Once you’ve settled on the niche for your blog, the second step of starting a blog is to find a reliable web host. If you’re planning to use a free blogging platform provided from the likes of BlogSpot or then you can skip this process, however if you’re serious about blogging, I would strongly recommend that you consider self-hosting.

  1. Installing WordPress


so you’ve found a reliable web host, now you want to install WordPress, assuming you want to use WordPress as your blogging, publishing platform, which I’d also highly recommend. Most reliable web hosting service providers make it very simple to install WordPress (one-click install).

  1. Writing your Launch Post

Hooray, you’ve launched your first blog, congratulations. Now to start writing your first blog post, but before you do, here are some tips and heads up on writing the best launch post possible.

  1. Getting Post Ideas

One of the most common reasons why new bloggers run out of steam in the first month of blogging is because they run out of ideas to write about, amongst other reasons. Getting post ideas can be challenging not just when you’re starting out, but continuously throughout your blogging career.

  1. Promote your Blog

So now you’re well on your way to building a great blog. But it doesn’t stop here. Another common reason why new bloggers lose interest in blogging fast is because they see very little results for all their effort, i.e. traffic, comments etc. Blog promotion is as important as creating quality content regularly.

I hope this checklist for starting a blog has been somewhat useful. Of course the journey doesn’t stop here either, starting a blog is just the beginning and needless to say that blogging is a lifetime commitment, it takes time to develop and success will come if you persevere, the very best of luck on your quest for blogging success.
