- PAID (Where you get your own domain and hosting
I recommend the second one, it hardly costs $20 – 30.
Is this right time to start blogging?
Well no time is better time than NOW. If you can not start now then you will stay there forever and say wish I could have started this years ago and today I would have been different.
Why do you want to start a blog? (Mission)
You need to know why do you need to start blogging and leave every other career. You need to have clear mission that you want to earn from it by sitting at home and should have passion to write.\
If you are not passionate this may feel hectic and difficult as it is very dry subject.
Things you need to start blog website:
- Passion for writing
- Website (Domain and Hosting)
- Internet connection
- Table and Chair
You are now ready to start blogging.

Let’s discuss these steps one by one and how to do it.
Choose your niche (Step 1):
You need to understand on which thing you want to write, be it tech blog, news blog, fashion or travel blog or anything else.
This is mandatory as you will then know your user or visitor and this way you can write better and specific on specific topic.
How to choose niche?
Well ask yourself this, what interests you? What is that one thing that drives you crazy about blogging.
Name is important, Pick it wisely (Step 2)
When a baby is born, we name him or her and that goes for their lifetime, they are known and recognized by the names.
Take an example of brands.
How to name your blog?
Name should be easy to call, easy to remember and easy to share for your niche. So take this step wisely.
Get Website (Step 3)
Once you decided name, go to any domain/hosting provider and take domain as per your name, highly recommended.
If you named it as awesometravellers and you get domain of crazydrivers . com, you will loose your users rather than winning them and they will never visit your website.
Make Social Profiles (Step 4):
Make a fan page on Facebook, create a profile on insta, twitter and video account on youtube as you may change your mind and shift to making videos.
Write your first post (Step 5):
You are all set to start writing, so go ahead and write your very own first blog on your very own website. Let’s rush to make money online.

Now you must be wondering once you write that post google will reach out to you and tell you that your are getting paid.
