Having a blog might seem to be something normal nowadays, but people who don’t have any knowledge about blogging will also say that it is something very simple.
There are many bloggers around the world who are sharing their passions, knowledge an daily activities with others. The bloggers in India are some of the best in this field, having websites and personal blogs with hundreds and thousands of visitors daily.
Once you start a blog you’ll discover that things are harder than you’ve ever expected, and that’s the the reason why everybody should do a little research before starting a blog on a specific niche. It is better to prevent than to treat, and it is the exact same thing when you want to start writing on your personal blog.
It is better do know what people expect from you, from the niche you’re writing about, what are you competitors and what are the chances for you to succeed in that niche.
There are a few steps and things that you should consider when you think to start a blog:
- Do you want a free platform or a free one?
- Why do you want to start a blog?
- What is your knowledge field and what are your passions?
- What and who are your competitors?
- What is your interest niche?
Try to answer to those questions and you’ll have an idea about your future blog, how it will look like, what is your competition and what is the target for your blog. You’ll be able to know who are your ideal readers, what’s your audience and your visitors interests.
For example, a big number of bloggers in India have oriented their topics and blog posts to technology because many people are searching for things like that on internet. Almost every student has a smartphone, a desktop or a laptop and they are in need of valuable information about those devices.
Offering them the high quality content, with complete guides on how to choose the right smartphone, laptop or desktop, and many other ideas related to those things you’ll be able to create a small community around your website.
If you are willing to create something professional, you should go for the paid version of your website. It means that you’ll have to pay a small amount of money for your domain name and for your hosting. Those things look professional, trustworthy and people will become more confident when they’ll see a domain that looks like “domainname.com” than a domain that looks like “domainname.blogspot.com”.
Try to pick a niche that you have some knowledge about. It is important to choose a topic that you have some knowledge about, or a topic that you are really interested in, because this way you’ll be able to progress, learn and write easier than the case when you’re starting with something completely new and you have no idea what the topic is about.
Following those simple steps, bloggers in India and anywhere else in the world are able to create helpful and effective websites that are helping millions of people around the globe.
